Heavy Fruit has been steadily and steadily rising for me lately. Might end up being my favorite Legend album when all is said and done. So stoked that they're going to start writing the next album in early 2015. I can't go another 5 years without an album by them haha.

Yeah, it's definitely not bad lyrically. I think I just miss the storytelling style that isn't as prevalent on the new album. That said, it also has some of my favorite lyrics he's ever written. Sam joined before they wrote this album. I honestly don't think there's a huge difference from Steve's drumming, but there's little things that are different. As always, Adam's guitar riffs are my favorite part of the album.

I think it falls after It Hates You and I Am Hollywood for me, but better than SOTP and 90125 (which are both great too). I agree that the lyrics aren't their strongest but they're by no measure bad. Is this his first appearance? I can't say I noticed particularly one way or another, they've always sounded incredibly cohesive as a band so I never really noticed lineup changes.

I really dig it. Probably my second favorite of theirs overall, behind It Hates You. I think it might be Schuylar's best album vocally. Lyrically, it's not his strongest effort, but he set a pretty high standard with the other albums. I really dig Sam's drumming style. I think he fits in great with the band.

Now that it's had time to sit, thoughts on Heavy Fruit? My first listen wasn't super loving it but I think it's growing on me - not as varied as I've come to expect from them, but I love the sound, like It Hates You with better production.

Yeah, that's true. Though the more I listen to it, the more I have the chorus stuck in my head. Every song on It Hates You was so damn catchy without feeling dumbed down, I wonder if they'll be able to do that again. I do love the bluesy vibe on the new songs.

Enjoying it a good deal. It wasn't as catchy as It Hates You, though - hopefully the rest of the album will maintain that heavy but catchy balance that has made all of their other albums so great.

Right?! Tied for most anticipated with Trophy Scars. To me, the single sounded like a slightly more radio-friendly, better-produced IHY b-side. I can dig.

Dude, I'm so excited. I really love the new single. Curious to see how different this album is from It Hates You, considering how different each album is from the last.

Yo, sometime we need to discuss the new He Is Legend song/expectations for their new album. I'm stoked as hell.

Yeah, the song is just hilarious when it's Schuylar on vocals... the original is good for some context, or if you like that sort of stuff. But the cover... so much love for it.

Yeah I've always enjoyed that cover as well. I haven't taken the time to check out the original, since I doubt I'd enjoy it, but He Is Legend made it enjoyable at least. This reminds me that I haven't listened to that split in ages. I need to put it on soon.

Oh - well - haha. It must have gone under my radar; interesting. I adore their cover of Fancy, while we're on this topic.

It's a cover of a Third Eye Blind song, by the way. It's from their album Blue, which is a great album. The original track is great as well. The ironic thing is that Matt Williams said he hates Third Eye Blind haha.
