Car Seat Headrest - Teens of Denial

My biggest problem with this album is the track listing. Vincent would've been a much better opener and The Ballad of Costa Concordia should've closed off the album, not fucking Joe Goes to School (seriously were you guys high when you made that the closing song?). But that's basically my only critique about this album.
This album features some of Car Seat Headrest's best songwriting, most notably on the spectacular The Ballad of Costa Concordia. The instrumentals are fantastic here, like with Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales. The guitar and drums have a melancholic sound throughout the first half of the song, and then they crescendo, leading into the Killer Whales part of the song. And it's not like this is a completely melancholic album. You also get some really energetic tracks, like Connect the Dots. Connect the Dots sounds kinda like an American Idiot-era Green Day song, but actually good. And then you get moments on the album like on Unforgiving Girl where Will says "I just gotta ask: We're dancing right? This is dancing" that makes me picture him dancing while recording, and that makes me chuckle.
