Find the vocals are too indulging. Loved the pain and anguish in Jordan's voice in their past two, but it seems like they over do it at certain points. Or maybe I'm just tired of that style, but they were my favourite band, and I haven't even really gotten into this album yet. Excellent guitar work though.

True that. Like I said in the review, every time that guitar shriek in "I See Everything" comes in after "January 19", my entire body shakes. So powerful.


Thanks to everyone so far for the kind words. It means a lot.
I get the same effect when I hear Jordan deliver that line. That in itself is a huge accomplishment.

how you could possibly like their older work and not like the vocals on this album is beyond me. if anything they're better on this album. but in all reality they're very much the same.
I just find them (vocals) way to quiet and they don't shift gears as much. I'm definitely not giving up on the album, I just haven't found its charm yet in the few listen throughs I've had. King Park is the exception though.

There was an article posted a while back (maybe via their Twitter?) that talked about how they recorded the album using only natural reverb...which explains the huge dynamic gap in the vocals going from quiet to loud. Really interesting read if you're into the technical side of things, and explains exactly what you talked about.
Do you know how I'd be able to find that?

St.Paul is probably my favorite song on the record. Great review though.

Overrated, I love this band, though.

La Dispute is just way to good, at first Jordan's voice made me iffy about them (as I'm sure everyone thought), but once I got it and started looking at the lyrics, I started enjoying his vocals and appreciating his ingenious lyric writing ability.
