Despite the fact that this album was released a decade ago, I still listen to it now and find it unbelievably impressive. This album took post hardcore rock music in a direction it had never been taken before. Dance Gavin Dance showed themselves to have radio pop and modern R & B sensibilities wit out compromising the energy and aggression of their craft. This album also has an inner Sadness that it wears on its sleeve but not to the point where it is annoying or unbearable.

The thing that makes this album so great is that because it was the bands first album, they didn't have anything to lose and there were no preconceived notions about what they should be. And that was the beauty of what Dance Gavin Dance did. They were really truly creative on this album and they paved the way for themselves to maintain creativity while also paving the way for other bands to push post hardcore rock into other directions. This is an album that really defined what post hardcore could be when people really tried to bring out its full potential.

Tracks like "And I told them I invented times new roman" and "Lemon Meringue Tie" are still two of my all time favorite post hardcore songs. The alternation between clean and dirty vocals on these tracks especially stand out to me because it captures so many mixed emotions all at one time. And the guitar work is also spot on in capturing the emotional angst that damaged people face on a Dailey basis. And while some of the lyrics may not come across as deep or profound, I think that this is a representation of the fact that when you deal with pain, sometimes you just have to let yourself laugh and be a little silly. And this is something I see throughout Dance Gavin Dance's discography. They are bearing their pain honestly and dealing with it in some pretty wild way. And that is honestly about as human as it gets.

So all that being said, there are so many reasons to love this album and even if your not a fan of any other post hardcore music this is still an album I recommend.
