I totally agree with all your specific comments about each song. "Holly's on Fire" is by far my favorite, and "Run Around Town" definitely my least.

Good review, though short. This album was pretty disappointing for me. WYDS was catchy in all the right ways, but most of these songs were like USAD b-sides.

If anyone's curious, I wrote a more...

Like this a lot, but the production still sounds muffled compared to the massive WYDS.

Great album. I love "Missing You," "Runaways," and "Dancing With A Wolf."

Love this album, especially "Avalanche" and "Aquaman." Didn't really like "Up 2 U," though, unlike most people.

"Work this Body" reminded me of The Summer Set.

Yeah, I sort of figured it was the genre, although I would think different voices would come out even within the genre - not all punk-pop sounds like Parker Cannon, for example.

I'll be sure to...

Great article! It's awesome to see some actual examples of sexism in the scene. Contradicts what so many people commented in the last thread, about how it supposedly doesn't happen.

One comment, and...

Awesome. Love all the seasons except 4.

5 was still inconsistent, but a big step up from 4. Even if it wasn't great, I'm pretty sure Community can stick the landing for a proper send-off.

Would be...

Yeah I don't know about this. I'm sure I'm a little naive about what injuries have occurred, but neither moshing nor crowd-surfing have ever really bothered me. Even if it can be distracting having...

- Haven't seen Her, but I know that once I do it's probably going to be my favorite movie of the year. I'm already mad about Joaquin without having even seen it yet.
- Inside Llewyn Davis was the...

I'd agree that most of these songs aren't as catchy as WIKY, but I still think it's very well-written and enjoyable, and contains a fair number of catchy songs (like the ones I listed above).

"Summer of the Lily Pond," "Just Don't Let Go Just Don't," and "Die Young Die Dumb Not Soon" are my jams.

Liked Fixed at Zero by far the most. I'd recommend Fixed at Zero, Mythology, and Lost Tree.

Summer of the Lily Pond is my favorite after listening to most of the songs (aside from the last two, which I haven't heard). Those horns are fantastic.

Like many have said, nothing is as instantly catchy or awesome as most songs on WIKY, but I really like it nonetheless and I think it'll grow on me.

Not really my thing, but I like "Nicotine" and "Casual Affair." Vices & Virtues was my favorite.

I do wish there was a little more variety, but pretty solid album. I really like "Last Night For a Table of Two" and "12 Through 15."
