Good review and decent album. There are at least a handful of better albums in this style though this year. Don't see why this is the first one mentioned by most people.

I normally hate your reviews but this one and The American Scene are quite good.

This and Dikembe's latest are my favorite emo releases of the year. Better than You Blew It! for me. Grow, Up Dude is great, and I am glad they are getting big for a band that plays that style of music, but I think its pretty overrated.

Doesn't Glocca Morra consist of guitarists from Snowing anyway?

But they pre-date Snowing... and are a million times better.

I don't agree with this statement at all. I love glocca morra, and this album is great, but snowing is just on another level for me.

idk i never said anything about american football. also i think you blew it and dikembe made better records
If you reference Mike Kinsella in the RIYL, you're most likely talking American Football. I doubt you meant Owen and I've always thought of Cap'n Jazz as more of Tim Kinsella's deal. That's why I said that.

Decent review, though. I just think this album really blows every other band that most people associate with this genre out of the water. Less generic, more personality, etc. Dikembe, Dads, You Blew It are pretty interchangeable, in my opinion, and overall pretty forgettable.

Why is Dikembe even brought up? They sound the least "interchangeable" in this genre.

I agree, it's really annoying. How are you going to objectively state who released a better record when they're all fucking great records with great music...
