You guys may not remember, but I spoke to your singer and bass player after a gig you played in Lucerne, Switzerland back in Sep 2007. You guys are amazing!! Still listen to your record regularly. See you next time!
Their first album feels like a bit of a guilty pleasure sometimes. Really incredible and intelligent, but is drowned so very heavily in effects. There's much less of that in their second album, it feels "purer" somehow. That said, I too enjoy it more (but only by a little).
