  1. Interestingly, Antibuse is a medication used to treat severe alcoholics. "We took the Antibuse, I feel nothing, who's to know?" definitely rings of addiction, specifically trying to come out of one.

    Most bookstores will have a magazine section. Barnes & Noble. Go to a local bookstore if you can though, they need you, haha. also! People who write music reviews are so bad at it. That's an electric piano not an organ, and where in this song is the "quasi-metalcore chugging"? I'm not totally sure what that is, but I am sure Phantom doesn't have any of that happening.

    I was lucky enough not to have any issues with my merchconnection order vinyl/cd/poster and while the weirdness having some of the distributors mess things up in unfortunate, I think this is perhaps the most pleased I've been with the quality of the packaging. The Violent Waves press I got has MAJOR sound issues. I think my yellow/black Descensus sounds better than any circa press I have, besides maybe the 180G repress BSN. I own it all except for the picture disks and a few color variants on other stuff. Also, I LOVE the choice they made with the inside of the gatefold. The lion...thing is so perfect.

    I'm pretty sure Potrugal the man's church mouth does it on side A. it goes "turn me over, turn me over" all quiet and quick. There's a lot of records that do it, nice that they found a way to do it that matched the concept of the song so well.

    Yeah, I love the 5/4 groove, and of course that ending is just such a barn-burner. So many violent waves songs evoke this sensation of falling/flying, especially I'll Find A Way. I get the same thing here. Only The Sun is like this cosmic journey or something. Rushing through the air... you know? I think its the ways the guitar chords sustain and the way the drums keep the momentum or something. ....Sovereign Circle didn't impress me all that much when I listened to the initial shitty leak, but listening in FLAC right now, and this song is sexy as fuck. I wish I knew what he was singing after "Soveriegn, circle around the...end OHLAY???"

    it exists. just sayin'

    I think when you're already really invested in a band the new material is always a two-edged sword. People were saying the same things when OLG, BSN, and Violent Waves came out. While I think there's a ton to love about this new record, I think people waste a lot of mental energy trying gauge how much they "like" a new album. You already like the band, clearly, so just approach it as what it is... a new statement. Think about what it says and how it feels and not so much on whether its good or bad or you like it or don't. I think this album says a lot and tries so many interesting things, and that's what I really want out of a circa album. Just those crazy experiences and passion. For me rock music in particular lacks a sense of adventure these days, but circa albums never do.

    leak quality is BAD. but all the ideas are so wonderful. I love the feeling and the flow of this one a lot. EEEEK & that whole ending is so audacious. I didn't think music could make me go WTF anymore, but my boys pulled it off. Also the lyrics are very peculiar. They both reach into this imagery-heavy stuff that reminds me of OLG, and he gets very personal, talking about marriage and consequences of choices, it's further into both realms.

    Leak, you motherfucker. I mean. It's more important that this makes some money to encourage the guys to keep going, but... I just want this in my life.
  10. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    This review is painful. ... OLG is "psych-punk"? What? I love the completely arbitrary paragraph breaks. ..I'm stoked for some instrumental material though. I don't think I've ever seen them play Compendium.

    I dig the shit out of this, can't wait. (long time no see) :D
  12. The Sound of Animals Fighting

    shit guys. Wish I lived on a coast. Also, Craig sings on Act. I on the DVD for sure, but it definitely doesn't sound anything like him to me on T&D, and I have all three versions. I'm pretty sure he just did Lover. Though I also feel pretty sure there's a couple of singers on T&D besides Anthony and Rich.
  13. Anthony Green "Young Legs" Discussion

    So based on the new vine snippets, they must be recording in the same studio circa did violent waves in!
  14. well it's kind of hard to see but that just looks like Bird Sounds to me. "I can see it running through his veins"
