anyone else ever heard this Menzingers album that came out in 2007? it's actually pretty fucking good. I've been listening to it more than the new one, that's for sure.

Totally fair, and it just comes down to a difference of style. For me, busy through the day, I like to get right into the album when I click on the link or I'll just go elsewhere. I don't mind the...
