i am not big on emo.... might say i dont even like it, but there is something different about thursday. i also have:'collapse', 'war', and 'city'. i also have 'house lights'... but didnt like that, so i was a little scared to buy this because i thought they had lost it. but this cd is as good as collapse or war. i cant stop listening to it. Geoff's lyrics/themes are as creative as ever. i love the way he words things. his singing is better than ever. in general, the cd is a little darker and a little less screaming, which was exactly what i wanted. i highly recommend all 4 cd's listed above. i have zero regret from any one. i cant comment house lights for musical reasons but it is nice to see them in concert and some interviews and home footage type stuff. if you are new to thursday, it might take a few listens... but "you'll get it" by then.
I would recommend this to a friend
