easily the best album. they took their master-level skill of pop song writing and applied to songs that were actually about shit, and was way more honest than any previous effort. i have great memories to this album. i had thought they were a very solid band prior to the release, but after hearing it and seeing them tour off it twice i was totally blown away. i also remember meeting gabe at one of the shows, i was with my girlfriend at the time, and i pointed at him from across a room to tell her he was near, and HE walked over to US to talk to US. i remember him being such a genuine guy, he really cared that we liked his songs. god damn im gonna go listen to this album now.
