    Anyone else feel that Two Weeks kind of breaks the flow of the album a little? I mean it's a great track and everything, but I always found it jarring to hear those plinky plonky piano chords all of a sudden after Southern Point's nice quite outro.

    This album is so intricate. After listening to it over and over again I still found new layers and sounds. It's like a gum that never runs out of its flavor! amazing.

    Revisiting this album four years later since it's release, I'm pretty convinced it's a modern masterpiece

    i think this record could be better if two week was the first track. it's more "energic" than southern point to a opening track

    after listening to this record I feel the urging need to listen to some melodic death metal to feel at least a little power and intensity again. Not quite sure if that's a bad thing at all...

    Exactly the same feeling @GreenKamo. It's been sitting in my library for so long now, but I just stuck it on play today and pretty much all of the tracks you mentioned fell through to me. I still don't quite understand why this is hidden in the albums page though... being all secretive with their most popular album aye?

    This album finally hit me today a year and a half after I first heard it. Such a slow grower! Two Weeks, Cheerleader, About Face, Ready, Able, I Live With You, and Foreground are all amazing songs, It's incredible that they're all on the same album.
