  • I've been listening to this band for about four years now & I've been annoyed at the "post-rock" tag being one of the main tags for about four years now.
  • All the lyrics, accurate (for a change), link from their website, [url=http://bearinheaven.com/]here.[/url]
  • saw these guys last august, the opener (young magic) was fantastic, one of the better sets/usage of vintage video i've seen- really complimented the music and i hadn't heard any of their stuff prior, so that was an extra bonus. however BiH's set was ehhh cause the bass was EQ'd too high and it drowned out everything else. plus the lights were meh. but they tried, and the material otherwise was really solid/tight. and yes, these guys are far too underrated.
  • last album was better. but this album is great too.
  • The new seems kinda droney. Can't connect. No standout.
  • Saw them blow out Ann Arbor, MI with just Beast Rest Forth Mouth material. Amazing live force. Then I Love You, It's Cool came out, with a fairly dramatic change, but it was fresh and original and moving oftentimes.
  • Was emphatic about Bear in Heaven until this new one. Times of disappoint.
