Really excited - woke up this morning with For Whom the Belly Tolls in my head, and Renato and Amarante also popping in and out. That's a really good sign, probably the first time this year that I've had an album stick with me so quickly. It's great

Sounds like a diary entry from Lance's Mom's European vacation.

I'm still thinking about that gig a month later. Probably the most pure fun I've had at a concert.

The first time I saw them (2008) is pretty high on my list.

Shouter's contribution to this forum will never be forgotten.

Damn, I have been mostly out this past month moving apartments and stuff, and missed this. Glad you are enjoying that record.

I agree with most people's assessment. It's close to No Blues for me, but lacking the highlights, but a significant step up from Hello Sadness. I don't mind Side B at all, and I think For Whom the Belly Tolls is one of the best songs in the record.

They were playing Sick Scenes in its entirety today at Rough Trade. I hope that means they are getting some more recognition and will be financially able to keep going.

It's fascinating to me that they were able to pay to tour by selling merch. I'm sure it's not a revolutionary thing for bands like this but you don't usually hear the specific mechanics of how they make the money work.

This is fucking delightful:



Video for Renato Dall'Ara is out tomorrow, too.

Might be my #1 record of the year so far. It may be better than NO BLUES. The only two tracks I'm not huge on are Here's to the Fourth Time and Hung Empty.

This record is a fucking belter. I love it. Such great energy from start to finish. I'm calling it their second best record after Romance is Boring. NO BLUES a bee's dick behind in third.

1. Romance is Boring
2. Sick Scenes
3. NO BLUES
4. We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
5. Hold On Now, Youngster...
6. Hello Sadness
