  1. Just got mine in. The picture came out dark but it's surprisingly very faithful to the mockup. Gorgeous record. EDIT: Am I doing something wrong that this picture looks blurry until you click on it?

    PO - Wild Nothing - Indigo

    Can't wait for this
  3. I'm loving this album. Perch Patchwork I think will always be my favorite but this is a massive step up from Beware in my opinion.
  4. This was a cool surprise. Hopefully it's good!

    PO: CHVRCHES - Love Is Dead (May 25th)

    So this is the super special spray painted cover: Insert deaddovedonoteat.gif
  6. Back in the day when Equal Vision was a go-to label, I would buy so much stuff from them that they'd send me little goodies in the mail every so often (or maybe they just did that with everyone). One time I got an orange Drunk Like Bible Times keychain bottle opener that I've had on my keyring for 10 years now. I've never listened to the album and I don't even drink. I will never take it off.
  7. Damn that video is tight

    God I hate the practice of keeping vinyl gated behind shitty bundles SO MUCH

    Vaporwave Vinyl Releases

    What a dumbass website. I was refreshing since 9 this morning and it just kept saying 'maintenance' only to find out you have to click that particular link above for it to work. By the time I get there the bundle is sold out so I have to buy them all separate, then by the time I finish that purchase the bundle is back in stock and all the separate records are showing out of stock. Its a ~$4 difference but how stupid. Oh well, at least I caught it before it sold out completely.

    PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    New song, Howlin' Heart, can be heard on this weirdo website: http://www.thewildhoneypie.com/buzzing-daily/richard-edwards-howlin-heart Amazing
  12. The version of this album that's on Spotify is censored... I didn't even know they still did that for albums, much less for this type of band. Annoying
  13. Here are my thoughts on the album. I hated it at first listen, which is why I said what I said. I woke up the next morning, however, and the first thing in my head strangely was the chorus to I Gave Up, so I gave it another chance. I've been listening to it a lot since. The album is not terrible, it's just not the record I was expecting as I prefer a much heavier Underoath. The choruses are really catchy, which is weird to say, and I find myself having them stuck in my head a lot. Chris is the clear standout on the album. His synths and whatever you want to call it are really well done. I'm very disappointed that the guitarwork is mostly absent on this record and there are only a couple standout riffs. I was wary about Aaron being back in the band because I was liking the band without his vocals a little more, but I think he's used very well on this album. His vocals blend better than they did in the past and he's used more as an accent than a secondary vocalist. The first song on the album is my favorite. If the whole record was like that song, this would possibly be my favorite album by them. Great hook, awesome guitars, beautiful keys, and the scream at the end makes my blast my stereo every time. It's got everything. Awesome stuff. The closing track is super strong too, it's my second favorite. This isn't my favorite album by Underoath, but I think if they use this album as a stepping stone towards the next one, and hone their new hookier side and pair it with more of the atmosphere and guitarwork they used to be so good at, that could be a really really good album. 3.5/5
