I hate reviews written like that. I stopped reading it after a couple sentences, and decided that you were way off on this review.

I loved this review. Can't really get into the album past the first couple tracks though.

This reminds me of the ridiculous skits I wrote in my theater class. Fond memories.

LAKE: And that saxophone, too. You won’t even miss The Ugly Organ’s strings.

BLAKE and TRAVIS: The Ugly Organ!

Both look off into the distance and sigh in unison.

BLAKE: This is clearly not that band anymore…

TRAVIS: Why are you doing the Captain Morgan stance?

BLAKE: Sorry, got excited.

Quote:
TRAVIS: But, good Lord, what about “From the Hips”? I mean, “We’re at our best when it’s from our hips/ From our hips we don’t give a shit”? It’s so true! I mean, I haven’t had my number called in like, 3 months-

BLAKE looks skeptical.

BLAKE: With that body? Come on!

One of the best reviews I've ever read. Beautiful job, you guys.

how about being constructive and offering A reason why those reviews don't work for you instead of ripping into these guys?

entertaining review guys, my only adjustment would be a little more of an explaination of the low ranking, as from the dialogue it seems that this record is earth shattering haha

If the whole album was more like "In The Now." It'd be my favorite release of the year so far quite easily. Instead, I would give it like 60% maybe.
