increasingly seeming like one of my favorite albums of all time

Need to think hard about this one, maybe revisit later

yeah my favourite of the last several years for sure, i would have to really think to figure out the last thing i liked this much.

can't vote in this tho, paralyzing. nothing that isn't a 10 for me, or hasn't been at some point.

I think it's between Pretty Things and the last three songs for me (Haley/Mary/Black Diamonds). The last third of the album is such a great run.

spare, intimate, understated, kind of gradually exhaling itself, but also there's so much noisy texture in it (the nerve endings of guitar in "shark smile," the blown-out quality of the title track). feels like all of these songs were performed while lying down on the floor and they gathered static electricity

This album rules rules rules, as obvious a choice as it is tho it's got to be Mythological Beauty for me

Pretty Things was a partial catalyst for some changes in the way I think about sex and sexuality, so that seems like a strong reason to vote for it, and it's also gorgeous.

it's all amazing, a uniquely heavy emotional world to visit. my favorite has been Haley from the jump, so devastating and ultimately uplifting with a perfectly meandering chord progression.

Ah ok. Not 'Irish of the party' then.

Listened to this on the recommendation of an acquaintance and marked it down as bog-standard indie rock; glad I gave it another pass. Voting for Mary, as simple and sentimental as a nursery rhyme but it gets me every time.

this is a much better album than 'masterpiece' but i wish it had a rock song as good as 'masterpiece'

i vote mary, too. i think i've memorized all those words!

I don't really like the "rock" of masterpiece. It's a great song but I think the less distorted version they did on Tiny Desk was much better. I'm kind of glad they don't try to "rock" much on Capacity.

went with "Mary" but I love "Mythological Beauty" and the title track very much.

well haley is one of the best songs i've ever heard in my life so that one

the live "Haley" on yt where it's just the four of them in front of a wall is SO good. great harmonies that aren't on the studio vers
