10 Songs, 49 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though it follows 2012's Violent Waves, Circa Survive's fifth album is something of a comeback for the post-hardcore adventurers. Released on a new label in the wake of singer Anthony Green's successful battle with drug addiction, the record is a powerful statement of resiliency. While it's rich with the sprawling, frenetic sound the band is known for, the more subdued moments of Decensus are some of the band's best. The centerpiece "Nesting Dolls" features crystalline, interlocking guitar lines that build and build, and the title track revolves around a churning post-rock breakdown à la Mogwai. This is the band's most nuanced effort to date.

So good!

This is such a good album. I'm a new fan to the band, particularly because of this album. Green's voice sounds deeper and more enjoyable on these tracks compared to older albums.

Really good

Another awesome Circa Survive album! A couple songs are a bit too drawn out and seem to blend in, but overall it's an awesome album if you are a fan of this genre of music. Would recommend at least Schema, Always Begin, and Nesting Dolls, but stream or buy the whole thing if you have the chance.
