After all these years, it BLOWS MY MIND that he took the time to write a fifteen year old, snot-nosed kid. I'm sure I wasn't the only fan he wrote back to, explaining the band's decision to sign.
That's how important their fans were to them. And that's how special this band -- and this album -- is to me.
And I still have the letter!
What made them such a noteworthy band was always the songwriting, and the songwriting hasn't suffered at all in the transition to a major label. The melodies are more poppy and catchy than, say, Bivouac, but Blake Schwarzenbach's cleverly worded heart-on-sleeve lyricism remains present, Chris Bauermeister's bass is a bit more buried beneath layers of guitars but still remains the anchor of the melody and chord progressions as it fluidly weaves through the songs, and Adam Pfahler's drumming is still tight and driving as ever.
With time, old prejudices have largely died away and a sort of rediscovery of Dear You has emerged. It's too bad that it was never appreciated in its time, but better late than never. This is a record that doesn't deserve to be forgotten.
