EDIT: It's been a couple months now and I can still say this is a fantastic album that I listen to quite frequently.

LDER GOOSE (5/5) - a bit slower than the others, but not so much that the rhythm of the album is diminished.

after hearing a couple songs leaked over youtube, i wasn't too sure of how this album would sit with me. BUT... after listening to this album in complete, beginning to end, every song, seems to fit well with eachother. this great piece of work will make your pee pee hard. has many elements that downtown battle mountain had and even some funky jam pieces you heard on happiness (kinda has a "saturday night fever" touch to it.) my only dissapoint with this album was "purple reign" but its still a good song, just doesn't have that "coming to close" feel of an album. but never the less, i'm pretty sure these tunes could cure cancer and knock someone up at the same time. ENJOY!

Unlike most reviews for this cd I'm not going to waste your time bickering about lineup changes and just focus on how awesome the music is. "Spooks" is an excellent opener for the alblum that is a very well put together song that showcases each member's incredible skills. Even though he's insane, I don't think anyone can deny Johnny Craig can sing and every song really showcases that. Jon Mess's scream has, in my opinion, improved greatly and he does a great job of mixing his absurd and strange lyrics to his serious one. The istrumentals are, of course, amazing with some excellent drumming from Matt Mingus and the typically incredible riffs Will Swan (who actually raps a little on this album, sometimes it complements the song, sometimes not) provides. Highlights include "Pounce Bounce" which switches from laughable, to serious, to sarcastic and serious, mainly courtesy of Mess's lyrics which include "I"m lethally overdosed on pumpkin pie" and the potentially offensive "What's it like to be an atheist?/Are you okay with suicide?". There's also the superb "Elder Goose" which is very catchy for DGD and contains some of the best moments in the record where both vocalists are singing. It has a slow, intense chorus and is somewhat reminiscent of "Caviar" from the self titled album. "Heat Seeking Ghost of Sex" is classic DGD featuring some hooks (of course not radio friendly at all though), some of Mess's best screams to date, and the usual great guitars. After this song, the album becomes a little more melow and focuses more on Johnny Craig than anything else, which really isn't that bad because he is extremely talented. "Previously Ponchieezed" is my personal favorites from that group of songs, and builds up towards the end in a similar way to "The Backwards Pumpkin Song". All in all, if you're reading this review, you already know DGD so you won't be disapointed with this album so I urge you to buy it.

I wasn't too familiar with this band, it was recommended by a friend. Despite having pretty varied taste in music, I haven't listend to any groups with screaming vocals, so I was a little unsure at first. Thankfully, there were enough hooks and creative guitar work to keep me interested, and slowly the screaming grew on me. I'm not about to start listening to a bunch of other post-hardcore bands, but DGD has gotten the perfect mix of hooks and screams down, to the point where they definitely won me over as a fan.

EDIT: It's been a couple months now and I can still say this is a fantastic album that I listen to quite frequently. Don't let the screaming scare you! These guys have amazing talent and the screaming will grow on you. I buy a fair amount of music, and it's hit or miss. Sometimes I buy an album and it feels like I wasted ten bucks, other times I buy one, and get a couple hours of enjoyment out of the music and it's forgotten. And *once in a while*, I buy an album as awesome as DBM2 and it feels like I hit the jackpot and my ten bucks pays out tenfold.

Finally, the wait is over! The anticipation has now subsided and audiences can behold the return of Dance Gavin Dance. Being a fierce, DGD/Jonny Craig fan myself, I will try not to emphasize facts most fans will already know. For instance, Jonny Craig's return to DGD should already be known, and that outside of Sean O'Sullivan, it is the vintage lineup all of us fell in love with years ago. However, I do feel that Jonny's return certainly put fans on an emotional high, especially paired with Jon Mess's vocals. These two have forced me to return to the reasons I truly fell in love with the band. We've witnessed Jonny's departure, a replacement vocalist, and two records later, we are here on March 8th, 2011 about to have a nostalgia rush. I certainly don't dismiss the previous two albums, they were great and enjoyable, but without Jonny, to me, something was missing.

Now, let's get to this. DBM is still frequently cycled through my itunes and played in my car at max volume. The overall tone and atmosphere of that record encased powerful lyrics, vocals, and immaculate musicianship. Many people are wondering if DBM2 will dethrone an already prominent predecessor. On that note, I have never listened to an album that felt so complete and distinct than DBM2. Within minutes of the first track I was convinced the record would be a success. Nevertheless, my conclusion was correct; DBM2 took me for one of best listens of 2011. The raw talent of Craig, Mess, Will, Eric, and Matt sent me for one gripping experience. I listened to the album in its entirety more than 5 times before switching out to relax. In light of Jonny's absence, his godly voice improved with Emarosa and his solo work. DBM2 is one of his strongest performances yet.
