The Potwashers Perspective

Well first I'll put some thangs I jotted down while listening...

-Lots of cool weird sounds, which is totally awesome
-For some reason I was reminded of Alice in Chains + Pavement + Auolux (obv)
-Saturday Saviour = Supernova (KC QUILTY)
-Pillowhead = my favorite song, verse is a Nirvana rip-off

Right, so anyway, Sarah (sadie?) had played me this album before, but I hadn't really paid too much attention since we were at Bucks Rock and all I could think about was those motherfucking pots. She was real adamant about it's good-ness so I was glad that this album club gave me an excuse to download it off a random blog and listen.

Since I feel it necessary to quickly compare Failure to Autolux, I must say I like Ken Andrew's awesome 90's voice better than Eugene Goreshter's 'light moan.' (/expects to be murdered by Sadie)

I really loved the songs on the album with the "epic" drum beats and awesome sounding guitar solos. Sounds like the new Muse album on paper but they found a way to make them just be fucking awesome and not extremely extremely annoying.

The lyrics are kinda depressing (and maybe a little cheesy), I think...
I'm never gonna make you feel
That you're satisfied
I'm never gonna feel your pain
Like you wish I would

-Saturday Savior

I'm so ashamed to love no one
My ego's bent and my prides undone

-Pillowhead

Stuck on you 'til the end of time
I'm too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you 'til the end of time
You've got me paralyzed

-Stuck On You

etc...
So to sum it up, I liked pretty much everything about it. If I had to come up with two complaints, the first would be that some of the songs don't feel too different from each other. But that's okay because it's a long album, so if some of the songs mesh, it's probably a good thing. Also, the lyrics are fairly emo and (I think) lame at some parts. But other than that, it's really good. Good pick, Sarah.
