LP2 really grew on me over the time. At first I was underwhelmed but now I think it sounds exactly the way it's supposed. And I support colderskin regarding age approach, the lyrics actually suit the band
it took me a while to come to this conclusion buti i think LP2 is great for being LP2 and not LP1. they're older now and the emotional fire has faded - that really comes across in the new record and I think it's one of the most honest approaches ive heard this year and i think that's important in this genre. at least they're not in the 40s singing about teenage shit like beach slang lmao
I think it's as good of a record as I was expecting...and then some. A lot of Owen influence, but still keeping into what you would expect from the band 17 years later. While some comebacks/reunions over the last few years have released a new album after years apart to diminishing returns *COUGH*REFUSED*COUGH...this one is a welcome surprise.
