Great Cynics' sophomore full-length Like I Belong is a love letter to being young. This record embraces long, summer nights and the shenanigans that follow, in nearly the same thematic vein as the Smith Street Band's jaunts being written a hemisphere away â?? walking endlessly around cities, sitting in bedrooms, lying awake between the sheets. They capture the suspended state of young adulthood from the get-go - "We're old enough to know better than this / and young enough to know it's not worth it to care." Nonetheless, "Ways Down" and "Kingsland Roaches" call against slipping into the tempting idleness of your twenties.
