Will Swan always leads the band in the right direction with his unique guitar work, mixing everything from traditional metalcore riffs to even disco-esq sounds. It's something that's not quite metalcore, not quite power pop, but definitely progressive. It hits hard but stays in your head and is overall just fun to listen to. The only thing that doesn't work on this album is the random 'rap' part in the song Eagles vs. Crows, it's out of place, not really clever, and just cringe-worthy.
Hopefully this is the last lineup change (at least vocally) that the band sees. The combination of Tilian and Jon just fits and while Acceptance Speech really established the dynamic of the two this album progresses it even further into something remarkable. Dance Gavin Dance isn't for everyone, they are a bit weird (read: progressive) and at times lyrically can be a bit off putting. However they are one the most unique bands out there, mixing metalcore with catchy pop choruses. This album really is instant gratification.
