I listen to a lot of different sounding music, and quite a bit of this style -- City and Color, etc. So I'm not saying this as some hardcore kid or a pop-punk pogo-child with no peripheral vision. This album is boring.

What's with the hate on Codes and Keys? It was one of my favorite DCFC albums!

I thought this album was going to be awful, but it's actually awesome. I love the way he starts and ends the album, it's perfect. Great review by the way!

You listen to City and Colour and you think this album is boring? How?

Went into this album anticipating a boring, sad sound (based on a lot of reviews and comments)...and ended up really liking what I heard. I think this review pretty much sums it up. I might have rated it differently, but I think this is ultimately a really enjoyable album.

I probably like at least 6 Gibbard releases more than this but that said it's still better than I was expecting after hearing that it was basically just an accumulation of songs written over a long period. Pretty good.

It's lyrically uninspired, melodically underwhelming, full of filler songs and just doesn't captivate me.
You could say the same for plenty of City and Color but I prefer Dallas' songs to most of the ones found here. I just used C&C as an example, instead of a less-AP.net artist.

Also, the songs rip on the Beatles hard but without much success. If I want to listen to someone sound like the Beatles, the new Tame Impala record is amazing.
