Well. In the Kurt’s defense, it was made pretty clear that everyone on that island was seriously hammered.
This album is a warm cup of tea that will happily sit next to me at my desk for a very long time, and “In Reverse” is just the sugar at the bottom of the glass.
I like to imagine that this is why he is changing his name. He is avoiding unpaid student loans.
Anyone just discovering this band should be aware that they wrote and recorded on of the best songs in the past several years, and they didn’t even release it on an album.

I hate when bands preview an album by sharing the closing track. I’m always really sad when I get to the end of the album and realize all of the fresh material is behind me and there is nothing new ahead to look forward to. And the first play through of an album is really foundational towards my future opinion of the album. It’s a subtle difference, but I think it’s bad marketing.
Also, data mining your fans and forcing a robotic watermark onto your preview track is bad marketing.
Excellent, as always. Beautiful build into a satisfying conclusion. I’m really looking forward to this album. They have yet to disappoint me.
However, I have no idea what was going on in that video. What an awkward pairing… The music distracted from whatever the video was about and the video distracted from the song. It didn’t do either of them any favors.
