It was such a good time, listening to that amazing album. Chinchilla is when things pick up again; however, it slows down a bit later and we're treated to some more great riffs and some nice drumming. The voice is great here maybe it sounds too emo for some of you, but this singer definitely does have a lot of strong points, sounding like a weird cross of Tool's Maynard and Anthony Green from Circa Survive. With Rolo Tomassi, hell that was a good line up for a gig, any way they make some wicked indie pop in the vain of Owls, Maps and Atlases, and all that good stuff.
