As much as it pains me to say this, Lydia should have stayed done after Assailants.

Assailants is their best release

What is with everyone hating on Paint it Golden? I thought it was pretty great.

Definitely looking forward to this new release.

doesn't pain me at all to think this. steve mcgraw was obviously the backbone of the band musically. without him the band has gone to absolute shit - something with deep emotional resonance to a glorified pop band.

Agreed, his guitar and arrangements really set this band apart. As much as I dig Leighton, he really needs someone to help guide him or it starts to sound like a clusterfuck (Paint It Golden).

Great news! I loved This December; It's One More and I'm Free and most of Illuminate.

I did, I liked Assailants but nothing before that really.
I'm with you, Illuminate has some decent tracks but it mostly bores me and December I just can't get into. Meanwhile, Paint it Golden and the Cinema are my two favorite things he's done so, while I'm in the minority, I'd love to hear more new music in that vein.

McGraw did add what made the first two albums so unique. Leighton still has talent though and I can't say I hate the new stuff. It's not Lydia to me as it used to be obviously, but I would like this newer stuff still under any other name as well

paint it golden was poor compared to illuminate, it just felt so underwhelming and lazy. Hopefully the song writing will be better on the next, the cinema record was better as well.
