honestly, i don't think i was mature enough for the first Bad Books album when it was released a few years ago. it did kinda like Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over the Sea: i really hated it after two tracks. then i kinda liked that one track on it... but only sometimes, when my friends weren't looking. then after a couple years, it was one of my favorite albums. i'm thinking that this next Bad Books album will sink a little easier into my heart than it's predecessor. i'm exactly where i need to be for this album to work for me. :)

exactly. that's how i feel now. it's just, there was something going on in my head at the time that insisted it sounded like poop. took 2 years for me to "get" Aeroplane.

none of the songs sound the same. if you heard their first album, it's exactly like that, only better, and it feels a little more nurtured and diverse than the first as well.

Actually the most common opinion about that album that I've seen is that people hate it on their first couple of listens but subsequently fall in love.

I'm actually not familiar with their first album. "Forest Whitaker" is the only song I know by them. But thanks!

oh. that's cool. to put it simply, the weird-ish 50's guitar sounds with heavy spring reverb, catchy lyrics and melodies, and well thought out progressions are constant in this new album. a couple RAGC sounding songs. very well-rounded in sound as far as mixing synthetic beats in every now and then. the harmonies are my favorite part of most songs, as the contrasting line between andy's and kevin's voices sometimes gets blurred into this beautiful folk/rock and roll hybrid.

I was pretty disappointed with the first Bad Books record honestly, but that's only because my expectations were "Andy + Kevin = omgzz" and it was just kind of...Andy and Kevin playing in a basement for fun. I'm really digging II though.

i hear ya. the first album, although having a few really good songs, just doesn't flow as well as this one does.

This album is so much better than the first in my opinion. The the first was a bit loose and rushed, II sounds much less sugary and poppy and is a lot more what you would expect from Andy + Kevin. There is only one song I'm not a fan of (No Sides), the rest is good.

Highlights:

The After Party
Forest Whitaker
Pytor
Petite Mort
Ambivalent Peaks

Also - Pytor was for sure a RA,GC! song.

It's about Peter the Great.

Sounds very similar to RAGC and deals with similar subject matter. But it's an original song - not on the same path as RAGC.
