Wow this is really something special. Existential and mindnumbing all in one, like a lazy ourbouros, poignant and mindful, yet taking confidence in the road to nowhere.

fave tracks: Bassackwards, Loading Zones, One Trick Pony, Hysteria, Bottle It In, Mutinies, Rollin With The Flow, Cold Was The Wind, Check Baby

Jeff Rosenstock is my guy!

Like pumping some maturity into Green Day, or taking the pretention out of Arcade Fire, Jeff has created a fun, emotional ride that's both easy going and a rollercoaster. It sounds like The Suburbs on steroids, taking themes of loneliness, insecurity, existential angst, and turning them into fun homecoming jams.

Fun fact: This is the best album of the year according to the principal horn player for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

fave tracks: You Let My Tyres Down, Two Afternoons, The Future of History, Shellfish Toxin, A Laughing Death In Meatspace

Wow. I don't even know what to say. Thank you very much for all of that...
That made me feel a bit better :) I'm sure I'll start up again at some point once my nerves settle down.
There's still a lot of stuff I want to atleast give a rating to. Thanks for being so sincere and sweet! <3

I just don't know how to keep my mouth closed so I've ended up with a lot of people on here not associating with me.
I've done a good job of making sure the general consensus of me on AOTY is "bitter toxic cunt"
I've tried apologizing but it leads nowhere. It just sucks when I'm around.

Hard to say.
I just feel really sad and isolated and lonely when I come on here. It's all my own fault though.
I'm a very unhealthy person lol..
