  • "lel pretty sure Abandoned was from the Priests point of view to establish the affair with the Mother and that the Priest is possibly the Youngers true father" He's almost certainly the father - see Penance: "The boy must never know about me, never know of my face. Between us, hold these secrets we keep" & Atonement: "Been waiting, a lifetime to hear that voice (...) "What brings you here my son What brings you here my son"" (last parts are a repetition from Cowardice) Great story, anyway :) Although I strongly hope the next (probably last?) album is from the mother's perspective. I think that's the only perspective that really has the potential to increase the intensity of the story again.
  • and yes the Priest is addicted to heroin just like the Mother
  • but you can bitch about album perspectives if you really, really want to

  • Spared in Hell transitions into Divination and the volume goes UUUUUUUUUUUP!!!!!

  • I love Defeater's music, but I wish they'd write at least one album that isn't about an angry young man who has problems with his brother and father, is associated with the military in some way, finds/loses his religion and wants to protect a woman who's only relevant to the story in that her dying makes him angsty and depressed. I was really hoping that Abandoned would be written from the perspective of the mother, but at this rate we're going to see albums from the perspective of the bookie, the shipyard workers, the train conductor, the father's father, the father's brother, the father's brother's father, and the family dog, all of whom were in the military and struggled with Jesus (and Doggie Jesus?), before hear from anyone else. It kinda weakens the gravitas when everyone's got mostly the same tragic past.
  • "UNANSWERED. ABANDONED." Music to relate to.
  • New album rocks and Atonement is one of the best songs they've written thus far...methinks
  • and "I AM NO ONE, I AM NOTHING" @TooLateToGoBack
