Every song here sounds like it's being poured out rather than played. Repeated phrases that build into emotional eruptions, with anchored rhythms, and sometimes chaotic mingling of guitars, this album really finds a groove in unexpected places. It can be off-putting at first when you realize the fervency that Hop Along gives to sometimes mundane situations, like a waitress waiting for her tables to clear at the end of the night, but ultimately that's what makes it even more impressive. This is one of the most unique albums in recent memory, especially for being as accessible as it is. Buy it now and leave a spot near the top of your Best of 2015 list - you won't be the only one!
