Other thread hit 5k after about a year and half of excellent discussion. Seeing as the other thread will be locked soon, here's the new thread, complete with DC Talk references!

You didn't like their last album? Ironically, it's my favorite of theirs, haha. Aaron Weiss's songwriting is so crafty and original.

I really enjoy folk-pop music, however I didn't enjoy their's as much as I thought I would. The sound was good, but the lyrics weren't the classic mwY that I came to love. Even with my love of mwY put aside, the lyrics were pretty bland, with a few exceptions.

Hmmm...really? I thought it was interesting how Weiss used animal imagery, and used it to tell biblical tales metaphorically. That album actually gets categorized by many mwY fans as their worst, but to be perfectly honest, I didn't get into mwY until It's All Crazy.

Do they? If that's the case, I'm really out of the loop.

Same, the songs we've heard so far have made me very excited. At first I was reluctant because I never really got into Fangs, which muscially was great but because of the whole story idea, I didn't relate to the lyrics at all.

I love everything they've done, including Exit Lights, which I feel is unfairly panned. Isn't the new one due out this month?

I still haven't really listened to anything of theirs! I need to get on that, considering I've seen them twice in concert.

Dude, are you serious?! Buy everything they've put out right now. Physicals should be available for 1-2 bucks at most.

Yup, the 28th. Also, I don't have any song of exit lights except Fearless, which is my jam, for some reason I really love the part with the girl. it's a top 5 played song on my itunes.

So I heard this new cover of "Do You Ever Feel That Way?" by secular indie band Candy Claws from this Starflyer 59 tribute split 10" with Mike Adams at His Honest Weight . It really made me miss starflyer 59 when they were at their prime and they actually toured.
