Post-hardcore, okay, but that's where I draw a line in the sand. No emo, B. No emo.

Got the album today and after a couple of listens I can say I love this. Great stuff. World Sick is beautiful, I like how the strings announce that this is unmistakably that a new BSS album is about to start. And yes, All To All is as good as everyone has been saying.

I'm seeing these guys this Friday, couldn't be more excited. I just need to find an extra ticket for a friend and give this album a few listens to get to know the songs better before the show, but I know it will be good.

Let me preface this by saying that I don't care much for the s/t and I only like about half of YGIIP.

Now then, yes, I agree with Gump, when "World Sick" started, I was immediately captured by what was sounding like a definitely new BSS. Now, it's not profoundly different, but just enough so that I really loved the hell out of this whole thing. And now to be an odd duck, my favorite track was "Chase Scene".

Any one of these tracks from Lo-Fi would have been a better album closer than Me And My Hand.

You Forgot It In People ends just as badly, IMO. Two throwaways, back to back, when fucking Lover's Spit, which is among their most epic tracks, is RIGHT THERE? Shit, the album runs too long anyway.

I don't have any opinions on that, but I quite like Song for Dee.

My love for "All to All" is no secret, but there's a part of me that wishes Leslie sang it.

This album does lack a signature Feist moment, doesn't it?

I'm honestly not sure what my favorite song is here anymore. Sentimental X's moves me very deeply, but Texico Bitches has Texico Bitches.

To follow this reference to its end, I don't think BSS is above titling a song Football In The Groin.
