You should see them and listen to Gossamer more.

I fucking love Constant Conversations.

Constant Conversations is probably my second favorite song on the album. This album has been bumped down a tie for my second favorite of the year at this point. But that's not to say I wouldn't still give it an A.

I decided that Gossamer is superior to Manners. I decided this some time ago but am just now saying it. It was pretty obvious when I saw them live, hearing all the songs mixed together, and also when I finally listened to both records back to back. Still love Manners, though.

Yeah. Gossamer is much, much better in my opinion. I usually skip close to half of Manners.

I am genuinely surprised by the love for Gossamer. I've tried it a few times and I don't think it comes anywhere near Manners. TEAM FUCK GOSSAMER.

Constant Conversations is fucking great though.

I don't really remember much from Gossamer after hearing it. Maybe 3-4 songs I can recall the chorus or whatever. Overall, it's a very well constructed album and the lyrics are great, but I think you guys that are like CATCHIEST SONGS EVAR SO ADDICTING IT'S LIKE BEATLES LACED WITH SUGAR NICOTINE CRACK are willing that into being.

Manners has like half a dozen songs I've had on constant loop for 3 years.

TEAM MANNERS

This thread did inspire me to listen to it again and I like or love Constant Conversations, I'll Be Alright, Take a Walk, Cry Like a Ghost and It's Not My Fault I'm Happy, but that's about it.

I really love both albums and don't see any point in arguing about it.

Maybe hear it again before passing judgement?

Same here. Both are really good in my opinion. TEAM ON THE FENCE.

These guys will be playing Madison Square Garden next year. It's crazy to think that they were opening for Phoenix just 3 years ago.

Phoenix taking WAY too long to follow up their breakthrough album.

Actually, it's one of my most listened to records of the year and I've heard the tracks individually many times out of context because of Ashley trying to decide on a favorite.

To be honest, I'm not sure I would like the album as much as I do if I hadn't read that Pitchfork article, which helped me to hone in on the lyrics. I would have eventually caught on to how much of a bummer it was, but not right off the bat. You don't look for confessional shit in albums that sound like this one, and the fact that it has that deeper level impresses me greatly.

I did not expect to love it as much as I do but after hearing the new stuff live I was convinced I not only liked Gossamer more but I genuinely thought the songs were better. With the exception of The Reeling and Sleepyhead, the songs from Manners just fell kind of flat. The audience knew both records really well from what I could tell and there was just no comparison to the energy that the new songs had.

Not that a Passion Pit show is the best measure for anything (I can't imagine them pulling off a MSG show but good for them)...

But Sad Punk and gump are right - it doesn't need to be a contest. I appreciate both records and I hope what's-his-name can stay strong and healthy and keep making more great music.
