Good review. This so far is my AOTY, not because it's necessarily genius, but because it takes what I loved about NFG's Nothing Gold Can Stay and makes me love it again 10 years later. But I absolutely love this album. It may not be the most different thing I have ever experienced, but what I like about it is after so many years a band can create an album like this and it will be this good.

Good review, just to be picky its 'Gaia Bleeds'.
Love this album, The Fallen has the catchiest riff i heard in a while

Such a fucking disappointment. Both the Rest EP and Mutiny are among my all time favorite albums but after 10+ listens I can't get into this album. Before this was released I've probably listened to The Fallen (demo) almost 200 times and based on that song alone I was sure this album would deliver so its really disheartening that I enjoy Nothing Personal more than this. Besides the Fallen I only really like Giaia Bleeds
This is pretty much how I feel. One of the biggest disappointments in years.

i realy don't know how you could like mutiny and not enjoy this. It's essentially the same sound, except with better lyrics/vocals. They weren't going to reinvent themselves.

This and Mean Everything to Nothing (Manchester Orchestra) are my all time disappointing albums.
Really? Those are two of my favorites so far this year. Maybe my opinion differs because I came into both cds never having listened to either band before, but I though both were great. My main complaints are that the end of METN seems slow and blurred together at the end and TWBTDOU seems random at some points. Other than that I love them.

this album was pretty safe but it doesn't make it less of a great one.

There's nothing better than a Set Your Goals album. Especially this one. One of my favorite releases in a while.

Didn't enjoy this album, I'd have to agree with LDD.
