Well, Peef doesn't have to worry about not being able to make the show, because there isn't one scheduled anywhere near him.

Ironically, the place they're playing in Los Angeles is a couple blocks away from my house, a great venue.

Why oh why much they schedule their first show here post-Aleks?

Oh well, I'll probably go just to finally say I've seen them.

No Northeastern United States? Nice! Thank God Bloomington got a show, we wouldn't have wanted to miss out on them.

i don't know if it's their worst. i'm somewhat new to this band, so maybe it's a honeymoon period, but i'm not really able to rank their albums. i like them equally.

with that said, i've also been trying to avoid ranking music so much. just kind of sick of it, i guess.

I can't help but think that this may have functioned more strongly as an EP. It is by no means poor, but there is a disparity in quality between the tracks that was not present on the two others that I have heard from them, Youngster and Romance Is Boring.

Agreed. Songs About Your Girlfriend and Life Is A Long Time are excellent, whereas The Black Bird and Light Leaves go absolutely nowhere. And since there are only 10 tracks, that inconsistency turns out to be quite harmful.

"You can lead a horse to water but it won't drown itself" and "The black bird is a part of me/So sad to see/So sad to be me" have to be two of the lamest lyrics of the year. This is the sort of shit we would kick Bono's ass for writing.

I still haven't listened to this a second time yet. Ordering it now. Just wanted to say that sometimes I can't tell the difference between shit lyrics and good lyrics.

Good news, Imperor: Texas dates have been added.

Sorry, Peef, godforsaken places still missing.

Two shows? Venue I really like? Same place where I'm seeing Zola for $10? Weekend nights? Awesome!

Unfortunately I'll be in New Orleans that entire weekend.
