You think that the world is alright but that's a lie 'cos we're afraid to die and that's alright. a beautiful record that brought me through literally the worst moments of my entire life. while dealing with entirely different situations, this album helped me see the other side of the things I was going through. the blame, the pain, the destruction, all brought on by the actions of one broken human, unto his friends and family. it made me realize the importance.

They’re probably sick of hearing about how vital a part they were of the recent but Harmlessness, whose title is a play on the name of their 2010 debut EP, Formlessness, is a decisive move away from that aesthetic that avoids sounding calculated. On first listen, you may need the context of their more recent work to fully grasp the record’s magnitude (July’s Death to New Years is a de facto prelude to it), but it’s a self-contained work that should be taken as a whole. There’s no questioning the intensity of a record that starts, on You Can’t Live There Forever, with a pointed negation of the band’s name ( You think that the world’s all right-that’s a lie, ‘Cause we’re afraid to die, and that’s all right ), but those lines are immediately followed by an ascending melody that.
