  • violently wild is so good
  • Horry sheet.
  • I don't understand how they'r so underrated. They did it again, another great album
  • New album is just fucking WOW! Don't think anyone can get emotion across like Justin.
  • I agree; they are amazing live. Justin was encircled by strings. It was a sight to behold and a sound you'll never forget. "Violently Wild" is a good as anything they've done so far. Love these guys.
