Cool beans. I sprang for the splatter to Australia because the gold is boring.

Initial impression; this is a VERY specific album. I feel like every record after Can't Maintain has had a mish-mash of styles on it and the songs vary in genre as well as context. This is a very folky album, it's actually not too dissimilar from Can't Maintain in style but the production and musicianship is very polished, you can tell Ben and Sean have really become amazing musicians. There are no fast/loud songs on this album (which I personally don't mind), but if you liked the couple fuzzy punk songs they've been tossing on the last 3 LPs you won't get that here.  Contextually this album is straight up political, like all of it. AJJ might have been the only current band I trusted to tackle this stuff (they always have), but honestly these lyrics are REALLY on the nose. I always enjoyed their ability to take detailed topics and condense them to imaginative/smart-ass lines in their songs, but it seems like they aren't doing that so much with GLE. This just upon my first listen, so maybe it's there, I just feel like these are very straight forward lyrics. Definitely going to spend more time with this album because unlike all the other bands who are going after this topic Sean is a very smart person who's always had a good perspective with this stuff, he's not one to follow the popular opinion and his commentary is well thought out. It's a good/more mature record.
