“Music Is Worth Living For finds me and my band mates in the throes of a colossal vision quest,” says Andrew. “Determined to party harder than ever, we steel ourselves against alien elements, and battle a formless but formidable storm. Multiplying myself, I attempt to transcend the whirling void by engaging in a series of flailing spiritual maneuvers, vainly wrestling with the emptiness of my own soul. Alas, I discover I had already been consumed by my own triumphantly pathetic creation. And at this moment of devastatingly poignant clarity, I realize I’m back where I started, trapped inside the hardest party of all: Being alive.”

still almost impossible. every time i listen to this album each successive song feels like a step up from the last one.

(Not saying I "disagree" -- there are no wrong answers here -- it's just funny that, on an album with so many straight-up bangers, people were drawn to the more subtle, slow-building numbers)

I voted Break the Curse cuz the last 2 minutes were so overwhelming
honestly I still can't decide, I'm actually kinda leaning towards the title track now. kinda wild to hear AWK attempt a vocal performance like that

i voted for the title track mostly for the vocal performance. it's on some classic rock level.

anyway after like 15 listens to this I'm starting to think it would be an all-time classic if the mastering was better. it just sounds so brickwalled. but damn is the music good.
