First off, let me say I bought this release because when I seen it was produced by Ed Rose (brandtson, the beautiful mistake, get up kids) I had high hopes. Although, slightly discouraged by the Tooth & Nail label. Cut to me writing this review, I can safely say while at times showing promi.

First off, let me say I bought this release because when I seen it was produced by Ed Rose (brandtson, the beautiful mistake, get up kids) I had high hopes. Although, slightly discouraged by the Tooth & Nail label.

Cut to me writing this review, I can safely say while at times showing promise this is not something I see many people having a good time listening to. While the songs A midsummer's Nightmare and Tight Wire and Cold Hands are clearly the standout tracks with there humable chorus, everything else is just bland filler.

The production is top notch and all the instruments sound right on (albeit the guitar is a little annoying in some songs) target. I don't know if this band wanted to sound like the typical Deep Elm band or what but it certainly came out that way. I feel like most of this cd sounds like the worst parts of the last Beautiful Mistake cd without the screaming guy.

In closing if you want a cd that sounds like a second rate Brandtson or Jimmy Eat World then this is for you. Personally, I think a lot of kids will probably buy this, sad as it makes me to think that, just know those of you who didn't will have that 15 bucks for the next Trio cd or Less Than Jake disc.

a few things to say, first off, i saw slow coming day perform live last summer, and was blown away (since then they have added a new bass player-dave stoots). i have been awaiting this release since then. and regardless of what mr ocean has to say, i think this is a great album. for those of you out there who havent heard them, i recommend strongly you pick it up, and if the "tooth and nail" label scares you away, rest assured, this band is not going to try to convert u to christianity. if your getting bored with some of your cds, order it online, its only 10 bucks, and trust me-it kicks the holy crap out of the beautiful mistake and less than jake.

The Beautiful Mistake is pure rubbish. Talk about flavor of the week tendencies. They heard Thursday and decided to be a shitty Thursday cover band.

Listen to their EP and tell me they didnt want to be flavor of the week. They thought by adding screaming, (albeit very weak and terrible sounding screaming) they could catch on big time. Fuck those guys and their shitty music.

p.s. screaming and production by Ed Rose DO NOT, and I repeat DO NOT go together whatsoever. Dammit, what the hell were they thinking. It sounds terrible

Hey dicks, pick up a guitar and a mic and let's see you show up these guys (even though I've never heard them), let alone Less Than Jake. I'm getting sick of these elitist "punks." If you want to bitch, I'm sure the Lifetime channel has a message board.

One of my pet peeves is when people use "there" instead of "their" and make use of incomplete sentences.

the fact that the reviewer would buy the new less than jake cd over this make me wonder a lot about his sexuality. less than jake blows major cock.

the mp3s didn't light me up very well, i've finally realized that tooth & nail really sucks, the only legit-good band on that label (was) mxpx. slick shoes was ok.

song titles are usually in quotes, not italicized. the italics are usually reserved for album names, but its your call Mr. Dean.
