This is true God-Tier Post-Hardcore. I respect Daryl Palumbo so much for his masterful control over his voice. I love the way he plays with it, which, IMO was excellently showcased in Head Automatica as well as GlassJAw. I remember being on the "Street Team" and getting the cassettes of the two singles from Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Silence. I loved everything about that album. At the time I was just nearing the end of High School. This band, Thrice, and Thursday got me through some very hard and often confusing times. I was a different person then. Always drunk and high, anti-establishment, etc. Typical teenage angst. I was made fun of in middle school because of my weight. Later in High School it got better though. Blended in with the "stoner" crowd and selling to the "preps". I lost a lot of weight in the past few years and have kept it off. One of the first tattoos I got when I was 16 was a Thrice tattoo and the GlassJAw lowercase g. I was always angry, always getting into fights. I got suspended 3 or 4 times during my HS years and I was also arrested twice on campus for stupid kid BS. I was also expelled, twice. I did graduate from HS eventually because the superintendent was really kind to me while the principle had "it out" for me and my so called friends. Which I learned later in life were just using friends. I was the guy who's house was the party house. Alcoholic parents, etc. I cannot accurately convey how much this music meant to me at the time and how much it means to me now. I still listen to it. I was listening to GlassJaw earlier today. This music helped me to shape my identity and when I listened to it it calmed the savage beast. It was always just so nice. I wholeheartedly agree with Edgekrvzher, this is the pinnacle and the best that Post-Hardcore has ever had to offer.
