Pretty cool read. It took me a while to realize the writer was referring to Holden using "they" and "their". It kept confusing the heck out of me until I realized what they were doing. First time I've seen anyone referred too/written about in that way. Pretty cool.
The album is awesome. I was pretty worried that I might not like it cause the singles didn't seem to have that cathartic aggression that hits super hard like they did with Home. But this thing is so beautiful. Just an entire different beast. I totally think Holden and the band nailed it when they tried to give it an uneasy/off balanced feel. I think that's the perfect way to describe it. Just an off balanced and open beauty. There is something special about the music these guys make. I haven't really been able to connect with any music the past couple years. There's been a lot of great stuff that I've enjoyed. But these guys, it's just like, FUCK, ya know?
