Synopsis

Album Description
If we were to describe what Cursive's album sounds like, we would be in conflict with the thematic essence of the album itself. However, since this description is intended to tell you whether or not you are interested in Cursive musically, we will mention a few bands and/or songs which have positive characteristics we find in Cursive. Fugazi - (in their ability to mix hardcore and pop while paying extraordinary attention to song structure and dynamics) Bettie Serveert / The Pretenders - (in their arrangement of vocal melodies and articulation) The Cure / The Smiths - (for their moody emotion / sad pop) Lungfish / Run DMC - (for their infectious grooves from the drums and bass) Pixies / Modest Mouse - (for their erratic guitar styling) R.I.Y.L. Fugazi and Bettie Serveert covering Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" This is the follow-up album to "Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes" (Cursive's debut full-length on Crank! Records).

"this album could not be any better. my favorite album by one of my all-time favorite bands. i would recommend this over "the ugly organ" any day, but i love everything this band does. this record was great because it was so raw and even almost sloppy at times..some of the best guitar/drum work in indie rock exists here."
