A month since its release and I still can't stop listening to this album. The raw emotion in Wil's songwriting is almost overwhelming at times.
I think Jeff Rosenstock's production & guiding hand probably had a bit to do with getting such great performances from the band, as well as some of the flourishing touches that make the album feel like a truly new TSSB album. Considering how well-loved TMITR was, this is the perfect following chapter.
Shine, Suffer, & Young Once have brought me to tears on a couple occasions (fuck you very much TSSB) and overall I just want to thank the guys for releasing such a great album at a time when I was having trouble connecting with most of the music I've been listening to lately.
5 out of 5 Bacardi Breezers.
