I'm really liking this so far, definitely going to be a great listen when it gets colder outside. Has anyone who ordered from Shop Radio Cast have their order ship yet?

Good Lord, I love this album and, more importantly, band. But $5 just to ship one CD? It's tough to justify. Thanks, Hello Merch.

Really like the guitar tones and production on the album, which I think are both substantially improved from their past recordings. That being said, after one listen, only a handful of moments stood out and the songs seemed sort of anonymous. I'm sure that'll improve with time, though.

Liking this more than I did on first listen but it's still a fair bit weaker than Waves and Pneuma for me.

This is good but nowhere near the complexity of Pneuma. Totally lacking the energy of Waves too.

It's good, but not as good as it should be when considering what they're capable of.

This blows Waves out of the water.

Seriously though, maybe I'm just softening up in my older age, but this is just what I wanted from these guys. Definitely a heavyweight AOTY contender for me (along with Have Mercy and Owel).

Well said. I think the same points you're making are actually what make me enjoy the record so much - I listen to it on almost a daily basis, because it's such easy listening.

What a perfect day for a monsoon, Moving Mountains and sitting at our secondary office doing nothing.

Tracks 3-7 are wonderful. Such a chilly, autumn sound.

I think this album already tops Waves for me, and I'll have to revisit Pneuma to see where they stand in comparison.

Yeah, I got an almost late-90s alternative rock vibe from a lot of the guitar parts, and it's so nice to be able to hear everything, unlike the aural mushiness of Waves. Hopefully the songs grow on me, but so far nothing's truly clicked.

I love it. Definitely better than Waves, but I don't think it surpasses Pneuma for me yet. I'd say it's on par with Foreword for me.

Time will tell. I truly do love this album. Absolutely beautiful piece of art.
