God forbid people feel a connection to an album.

After one listen, I think this is spectacular. Doesn't resonate with me emotionally right off the bat the way the last two records did, but that's not really much of an issue; this is easily their best record to date musically (can't make out enough the lyrics, didn't read along while listening, need more time with them anyway).

The closer, "Teenage Parents," and "The Devil in My Bloodstream" are my early favorites. But there isn't a song on here I don't like. Love the guitar solo in "Chaser." Love Matt's vocals.

Thanks for another stellar record, guys.

Thoughts after one listen through...

Great opener in There, There.
I wasn't blown away by any of the songs they'd released before today but they all work well in the record (unlike a few Suburbia tracks).
Not a fan of the production on the piano. Song is decent but the piano itself is a little too 80's for me.
Solo in Chaser is very tasteful.
Matt's vocals are a little soft.
Beginning of the closer is not at all what I was expecting.
Interesting shift.
Not quite as 'epic' as it was hyped to be IMO but as good a closer as I can expect.

Overall,
Sequencing isn't perfect but maybe it'll make more sense after a few more listens.
I didn't pay close attention to the lyrics but I didn't catch a whole lot of the five themes.
Gonna take a few more listens to fully understand everything, but I already enjoy it more than Suburbia (which I didn't hate).

Mostly laughing at people clearly asking for people to PM them the album (which, c'mon, seriously?) or people who are "scared to listen" or "shaking" or "orgasming" or "vomiting" or "convulsing" or "dying" or "ascending to heaven" on their first listen.

Good point, it was pretty easy to find with a google search.

These guys nailed the one two punch to begin an album. Previously released tracks are way better in context. Teenage Parents is a very fast song. Chaser has a real edge to it, which I love. Top three would probably be IJWTSOMF, The Devil In My Bloodstream, and Cul-de-sac. Was left with a stupid grin on my face when I realized what was up with the last track.

That sounds like it would be unpleasant for your urethra.
