Yeah I don't remember a lot of gang vocals in S/T either.

The opening track has them, and so did the opening track to Hebrews. That was one of my favorite things about IARB as well.

Wait hold up I just remembered something. In "Hate Everyone"...wasn't the rapper in the Lexus supposed to be Kanye? I could have sworn Max said this back then but I cant' find a source.

I'm fine with the lo-fi sound. I hope that going forward, each album has its own gimmick or sound. That's one of the things I love about David Bowie, is how you can describe almost all of his 30ish...

Burn a Miracle is great, and The Stephen Hawking is on of their best songs. But IMO the rest of the album sounds like filler or b-sides. Except Admit It Again which sounds like shit.

IARB > Hebrews > S/T > IDotG > IDTIS > AMD

IMO. I only listened to Baseball once or twice so I didn't form an opinion on that one. I still think IDTIS is fairly good.

S/T was always a very strong album. But it's mostly just a bunch of structured pop songs and I think it's too conventional by Say Anything standards. Mara and Me is the only song on it that's...

I've always thought Max was good with wordplay, and stringing lyrics together so that they flow well. But as for writing meaningful lyrics, he can be pretty bad.

It's getting better for me on repeat listens. Some of the songs still aren't memorable, but others are getting really good, like #Blessed, Wire Mom, Goshua, and Rum.

#Blessed is really growing on me. Wire Mom too.

I just realized that this is the first Say Anything album without a really great closer. The closer is alright, quite Sleigh Bells-y, but it doesn't blow me away like the other closers do.

I've listened to this a few times. I think half of the songs are really good, and half are forgettable so far. Goshua is one song I really like that I don't see other people mentioning. So far...

I actually really like what he has to say about being progressive. People are way too hostile about it nowadays, with sensationalist labels like homophobe, misogynist, etc. You're not going to win...

Huh. Now that they mention it, the two do seem to share a lot of the same talents and insecurities.

I'm a few songs in, and while I didn't like the sound at first, I like that Max is still taking chances and trying different things. I mean in some ways, he's been doing his same schtick his whole...

Haven't listened to this yet, but I'll give it a fair shot. I remember thinking Hebrews at first was an even mix of awesome and terrible, and ended up settling at mostly great, with just a little...

Hebrews is awesome, and I think a lot of people didn't give it a fair chance. Outside of IARB, it has the most creative energy of all of their releases. S/T wowwed me at first, but now I think they...

It's pretty good but I think most Arcade Fire gets old after a while

Modest Mouse is a lot more interesting musically, but Brand New is heavily inspired by MM. Take At The Bottom for example...they are basically trying to impersonate Isaac Brock.

When I listen to OKC, I lose motivation to finish after I get through Karma Police. That's not say the songs after that aren't good, but IMO 5 of the songs up to that point are so fucking good that...

2 + 2 = 5 is good but I'm surprised at all the love for it here. For me, it's a middling track on HttT.

There There, Where I End and You Begin, and Wolf at the Door...those are the top tracks on...

Radiohead was my all time favorite band/artist until I got into David Bowie. It's possible that Radiohead's top 10 songs are even better than Bowie's, and that their best album is better than...

So I hope they finally put Present Tense on the new album. I expected it to be on TKoL but that didn't happen. I also hope that Lift ends up making it. I think I remember reading that they were...
