I would also give this CD a 9, as "Fig With A Bellyache" does make for a rather annoying cog in this musical machine. But I love the lyrics and the different instruments the band uses to create such a beautiful sound. Aaron is probably my favorite lyric writer, they just never cease to amaze me.

Have not actually listened to it, but thought about voting anyways as track one is real good.

I love this album. It's NOT classic mwY but it's still great in diversity. I like "Fig with a Bellyache". It makes me think...a lot. Just trying to figure out the meaning behind the song is an adventure.

A lot of people try to decipher a lot of these lyrics into Biblical/Christian meanings, even though the singer got a lot of these lyrics from limerick type things that are known in his father's religion.

Yeah...a lot of Aaron's lyrics are based off Sufi Muslim teachings and stories. That's a part of his background. I think it's astounding to see how he has taken those teachings and related them to his Christian faith. I've studied his lyrics a LOT. I started a thread to discuss them [URL=""]here[/URL]. I'd love to see that conversation go somewhere.

I have to give this a 9.

So, i've never really been a mewithoutYou listener, though I have all their albums on my computer (my brother is a big fan and buys their music). I mean a listen to a few songs here and there, but i've never actually gone and listened to a full album before.

Well, my brother bought this right away and was listening to it a lot, and so I was hearing a lot of it and I was really loving the vocal melodies. So I listened to it. I can't STOP listening to it.

The album is incredible, diverse, incredibly catchy and eccentric. I love the lyrics, and as I had mentioned before, the vocal melodies are awesome. He doesn't do his yelling like their famous for (except on the song "Bullet To Binary (pt. two)")
What's keeping it from a 10? There is one song I don't really like, I find it too annoying, it's called "Fig With a Bellyache"
I highly recommend this album for someone looking for a rather laid back album with great melodies, originality, and lyrics.

Fig with a Bellyache is the only thing I can find that I don't love on this album as well. 9
