    Sword Song, the bonus track, is the best song of the album :(

    ...but it's also pretty good.

    In the relatively short time I've been into indie music, this album is probably the most unexpectedly bizarre record I've heard thus far...

    I agree with Aesthete, I didn't understand it on the first couple of listens, now it's great, and if I'm going to listen to CYHSY, I go straight to this album.

    It's puzzling that Sword Song wasn't included in the regular LP. It's a very strong song, maybe the best on the entire album.

    It took me so long to love this album. I loved the debut from the first 2 seconds of it, but took me 4 listens. Now, I think I prefer it to the debut. It's more exciting.

    Oh man, when the bass kicks in on Emily Jean Stock at 1:10... the first time I listened to this album I knew I would love it :D

    This album was MADE to be listened to on vinyl. The distortion is perfect, anyone who doesn't like it was expecting something different.

    I agree, I love both, but this one is my favorite.

    For some strange reason Some Loud Thunder is my favorite one out of the two.

    it's a grower, like the band in general, just moreso. it's good, but I think it falls JUST short of the debut. as of right now, that's what I think.

    i listened to their debut like twenty times and always found it strange - but the 21. time i liked it

    The best CYHSY album. Goodbye to the mother and the cove is amazing.

    And the distortion/distant sound is SO great in my opinion, it gives the entire thing a very sad and far away and nostalgic/unique sound I think. people should get the bonus track 'the sword song' if you haven't heard it, it's one of the best

    In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful albums ever. I think it's better than the debut. Tracks 1,2,3,7,9,10,11 are honestly some of the most amazing tracks I've ever heard. I feel way more for this album than I do the debut and I think the songs are all stronger overall. Although I love both, this album is just spectacular to me.
