    Really loving Simmer the most out of all the songs.

    What am I waiting for, somebody to break in
    What am I aiming towards, a fight that never ends
    What am I searching for, a light to shine again
    Nothing's coming.
    Nothing's coming.



    Yep yep yep. Can't wait. =]

    I fall more and more in love with this album with every listen. What a fantastic effort. Another filler-less album from SSPU.

    Pretty great to get a 59 minute album consisting of only 11 tracks. The shortest song being 4:41. Gives the band long enough time to build up their song into something epic, and the best thing is the songs aren't repetitive.

    "Here We Are (Chancer)" reminds me a lot of Alchemy Index-era Thrice.

    The Pit is probably my favorite off the album.

    Saw them live last night. I was super excited. They weren't that great. Still one of my favorite band. :)

    I've heard poor things about their live show, which is really unfortunate, however, I've heard incredible things about their more intimate acoustic shows.

    Would really like to see a stripped down version of The Royal We (which is my favorite Pickups track)

    You need to get used to Brian's live voice because it's obviously pretty polished on their albums. It's often drowned out by the louder live instrumentation. I thought they were great both times I saw them, though!

    Yep. They were not really into the crowd. Maybe a more intimate venue would be better.

    Oh man, when I saw them open for Muse they had both sides of the Air Canada Center have a "flash-off" with their cameras/phones. It was awesome.
