I agree with pretty much all of this. Like I was saying in the 2011 thread, this is a dark album. I love it though because as beautiful as CDC was, The Collective is the polar opposite. It's great to the the diversity in their playing.
The Fair To Midland/Periphery/Scale The Summit tour is going to eb fucking amazing!
