Maybe calling certain albums a "classic" overshadows certain appreciation for a record amongst a community that gauges albums so differently. For this week's nostalgia, I've taken another spin on mewithoutYou's 2004's Catch For Us the Foxes and attempt to understand its legacy amongst fans of the band. Hit the replies for some words and give us your take, the first time you heard it or what the album has meant to you as a fan or casual listener.
while i prefer brother, sister, this is definitely one hell of an album. mewithoutYou almost single-handedly rejuvenated my interest in faith, and remains one of my three favorite bands. carousels is one of the most flawless songs in the band's catalogue.
I would definitely agree that Catch For Us the Foxes is a classic. It's easily one of my all-time favorites...Aaron Weiss's lyrics are the defining element of this album (and this band) for me. His gut-wrenchingly honest explorations of things like life, faith, and loneliness are like a touchstone that I always seem to come back and relate to. The music seems to match the lyrics perfectly, resulting in an album that is introspective, brooding, and cathartic. All-in-all, it's just a great album.
