Greater than Greatest Story Ever Told?

Brendan played the entire album twice at the bar that he works at. I think this is going to be their best album to date. January 28th can't come soon enough.

I feel bad...

Before I first listened to it, I had my doubts. I kept thinking, "what if it's a disappointment?" But wow, I am eating those words now. This album rivals Oh! Calcutta!, Cocktails and Dreams, and The Greatest Story Ever Told. One of my favorite albums ever.

Some may think its more polished then the other albums.. i think its just an awesome album lyrically and musically. I don't think its because its been years since we heard some new stuff, but the album is easy to listen to from beginning to end. I think the extra tracks are totally worth it too. You can't go wrong with anything these guys do but this album is one of my favorites.
