Just got the Jar Of Flies/Sap vinyl. For some reason Rotten Apple is by far my favorite AIC song. It's just so desolate and soul draining in a strange comforting sort of way.

Rotten Apple is incredible

And there's been times where shit has been going real rough in my life and I swear, the Rotten Apple, nutshell combo has brought me back out of it.

SAP is where it's at.  For my money, that's AiC's best work. "You... were always so far away...."

I don't mind the tempo, a lot of the better AiC tunes are slow or barely midtempo. But if the songs aren't there, tempo can't rescue the record.
That was my main issue with Dinosaur. Luckily the new song doesn't suffer from it.

Just got back from seeing them. It was pretty awesome. The setlist was rock solid except the new song which stopped the momentum dead and the audience was not in to it and neither was I.

I cried during nutshell. And the rest of the songs were mental.

It was great, but I do wish I could have seen them with Layne. Duvall did a great job, but it just wasn't quite the same.

So I just listened to the new song (just learned that they dropped a new single today oops) and it's definitely different. I wasn't really expecting how nasty that main riff sounds. Not something I'd ever thought I'd say, but it reminds me of Opeth or Porcupine Tree more than anything. Verses and outro are probably the highlights of the song imo. Chorus feels a little weak to me. That's my initial reaction to the album. It has made me rather curious to hear the rest of the album.
