Straylight Run, The Needles the Space

I bought the new Straylight Run record last night (Best Buy had it for $7.99, thank you Justin).



I've only heard the first half of it so far, but man. Musically, it's a progression. It's not nearly as outright catchy as the first record, but it does seem a little more complex. Lyrically, they've grown up a lot. They're not whining about prom night anymore. Now they're whining about the direction our country is headed. You know the world's messed up when emo bands go political. At any rate, I like it. I think musically it'll take some growing on me. But there are some songs I liked right away. And the last half of the album may be more accessible than the first. That's not probable, but we'll see.

Well, it sounds like it's an album.

I like the new icon. Did you make it or find it? I should do one for a band I like.

Thanks. I made it a while ago. I just haven't used it in a long time. I should redo it, though. Maybe leave out the compilations and make it fewer squares, so they aren't as scrunched up.
