I really like End Is Forever. I think Blue Skies has a bit more of diversity in terms lyrical themes. I think End Is Forever focuses heavily on breakup despite I.O.U. One Galaxy being one of my favorite love songs. I now own So Long, Astoria, Blue Skies, and End Is Forever (3 albums I listen to a lot) on vinyl so I am happy. I was missing Blue Skies and blue 180gram is sick.
