Deafheaven meets Godspeed you black emperor? And is that 2000s emo and screamo creeping in? So much bliss

My lists always get reordered like that. I'm hoping that occurs less now that I have an actual scoring rubric for writing reviews, which may be the lamest thing I've ever done. But seriously, thank you for appreciating my reviews. If you end up checking out the podcast I would absolutely love to know your thoughts.
