    Also worth noting, the album received 4 and a half stars out of 5 from the site. One writer claims it to be among their best work.

    This album is fuckin good. I got a free poster with it too. I've listened to it four times since I got it (got it this week sometime, maybe last week, just opened it this morning)

    This album is fantastic. Olson has really settled into his voice on this. He's peeled off the last layers of that affected crooner style and the result is a much more expressive and dynamic vocal delivery through the whole record. And the songs are his best ever. This is such an unfashionably good band.

    sounds like a nice improvement from the last record.

    i never knew why "albemarle sound" was named what is was until i found myself driving along side it most recently.

    Totally agree about his voice, though I do kind of miss the croon.

    Agreed about that, Clutching Stems is a killer song. Really like Hey Jack, I'm on Fire too but maybe just bc I love that title.

    I wish this band would go on a tour I've been listening to them a lot lately
