Ah yes, this one is a keeper for the master of indie. Didn't dislike a single track, nothing incredibly amazing though, but still good stuff all around. 8.5/10. This was a fun album.

what's your opinion on their discog.

 

I still haven't listened to this yet because I have not had the opportunity to sit down and devote my full attention to it.  new dgd deserves a respectful first listen.

I've listened to the entire thing, the only one I still listen to is Mothership (and now Afterburner). Mothership actually made me more open to the genre as a whole. Mind you, core is not one of my main genres in the least sense of the term. Still like 99% indie rock/synthpop/emo.

For the love of memes aside, I find incredible how talented DGD are. Afterburner is the perfect example of what they are capable of, "Calentamiento Global" is one of the most unique songs I have heard in my life even though Tillian's spanish is not well executed considering the fact that Will could help him a little bit more. The whole record is great for sure, some songs better than others (as usual). AOTY contender.

Had to really listen to it for a week, that being said, as someone that hopped on the hype train around the release of IG I think this album's great but MS is still peak DGD Tilian era IMO.

Another epic realease for the 20scene20.

As much as I love DGD and I have since WISIRO... the last few albums have been so damn similar to me. You could play a song from Artificial Selection/Mothership/Afterburner and I couldn't tell you which album it's from. There are definitely some good tracks on them but I can't listen to them like the old albums through and through, I just like some select tracks off of em.

Updated a new FLAC version with no skipping!

The new FLAC for track 8 is noticeably sub-par in quality than the rest of the album. Has the issuebeen fixed yet?

Has anyone got a better FLAC for track 8 yet. The replacement FLAC upload was noticeablely quieter and not as good as the original?

Pretty sure this isn't a real FLAC. It's very quiet and there's very little definition in the higher frequencies.

True but it’s clearly been edited (or improperly ripped) by the whoever sourced the FLAC.

wonder where they got it from?

the CD isn’t out yet and a FLAC ripped from CD would sound noticeably louder and better than this.

Hopefully someone has a proper FLAC copy they can submit? If not guess we gotta wait till the CD is out

Having had this album as long as I have and now coming back to it I have a few things to say, first off this is a really good album, like it's easily up there with Mothership and Artificial Selection for me. I can very confidently say the back half of the album is much better then the front half and I usually find myself starting the album at One In A Million instead of Prisoner, and I feel like that's because of the fact that it was the lead single. Overall for me the album is a solid 9/10 not quite as good as Mothership (9.5/10) but better then Artificial Selection (8.5/10) I can't wait to see them perform these songs live in September when they get back to Minnesota

If someone can rip the FLAC from the Target CD (both discs) that’d be nice. The FLAC already uploaded here sounds too quiet to be a real lossless rip

Nooo, leave it at this state of personal super-comfort-home! Trash-filled car-interiors and day-to-day bags (my last refuge, after having no car, but a flat in the city with the gf, nowadays) are bliss!

After sitting with this album for three months I can safely say this is Dance Gavin Dance's best album by far and in my opinion puts all previous releases to shame. This album takes everything DGD has done so far and blends it all together while also experimenting creating this overall Melancholic summer vibe throughout the entire album. Every song has a highlight moment and is much more theme based than previous releases.

 

The music on this is so rich, every time I listen to this album I'm always finding something new that I didn't hear in my previous listen. These also have to be some of my favorite melodies and riffs I've heard this year. This album gets better with time and my favorites on the album continue to change. Overall DGD knocked this one out of the park this is their best album by far and is right now my front runner for album of the year. 10/10
