This band seemed to have the latest 'buzz' on PA. The question here is which output did you like better.

I'm going with Act I. Quality > Quantity.

Hmmm. Man, I love both so much. However, I do listen to Act I more since it is only half as long. I'm still going with both.

I thought I could like them, but I can´t... it´s just too... for a better use of the word, emo. But not the real emo like Fugazi, but that Fallout boy crap. In a way they (or he) are/is very much like the new Panic! At the disco songs, emo with a bit of piano... but it´s just too whimpy... too gay jejeje, na that sounded bad!

Maybe one day I´ll like em, but for now Im not interested... so why do I even care to write this?...mmm... good question

I do love to listen to them as only one great piece of music so I go with both.

Both. Dear Hunter is a class act.

Both.

Two five star efforts, really can't decide between the two.

On a side note, I saw them live on Sunday, and again on Monday for a completely acoustic set. After the set on Monday they invited everyone to go have lunch and see Step Brothers with the band. It was a great time, completely down to earth guys.

I'm gonna have to agree with you a bit on that one. That is they do kind of resemble the emo stuff but their stuff that is good is so damn good it's like... an explosion of magic or something... well thats a dumb thing to say but ya I think I made my point so I'll shut up now
number 2 for me!
I've seen more wonders die...

I like both of them equaly, although I'm not sure why they appeal to me so much, it's not usually my sort of music.

As I'm a sucker for concept albums (although I don't pay much attention to lyrics), the prospect of seven continuous albums intrigues me. I sometimes wonder though,  if I'd be this interested if that concept wasn't there.

I prefer the first one. Act II lost some of the magic, but remains a stable effort. I think the great songs were drowned in the more streamlined material. But that's just me - ignore it.
