    Wow Tera Melos supporting? That's interesting. One of these days they are going to play older material on tour again and I want to be there.

    I'm stoked to see Little Tybee on support. I'm amazed I've never seen them considering they are from Atlanta

    I love the new tune. Did anyone notice that at the very end, when they are playing to the little green dudes, there is only 3 band members? I guess they came to the realization that CHON is a 3 member band, with a token bass player lol

    Their bass passages have never sounded as complex as the rest of the music. I'm sure they will hire someone to play on tour for them.

    I found the song a bit boring, but I really dig the video.

    Just bought my ticket! 230 miles away, but well worth the drive. Can't wait!

    I really dig their new album so far; I'm sure the laid back hip-hop/electronic inspired tracks will polarize some fans but it still has that CHON feel to them; the whole album made for some great driving music on this nice June day :)

    I can't believe the last time I saw them live was back in 2013 when they were with AAL and ATB. They've grown so much since then!

    Any track that isn't featuring someone else is excellent. Those tones are amazing, I see they've been using prestige Talmans and those mystery Suhr-banez prototypes with Matchless combos live it seems. Good stuff. The electronic tracks I can deal with...except Nayhoo. Wtf is that. Then again, I *REALLY* hate that style of rap that is on that track where everything is incomprehensible and in some weird symmetrical cadence. I mean, I strongly dislike rap in general but that Future style is unbelievably bad. I want to say Glitch is the best of the electronic tracks. The solos in Waterslide and Checkpoint are masterful imo. Part of me wishes they'd redo OG and make Newborn Sun 2 sometime though...

    Loving all the guest appearances. I feel like a Tyler, The Creator-Chon collab is actually possible now.

    New album is the best they've ever done. Perfect balance of classic chon tracks with more hip hop-esque tunes.

    Have to agree, this is the quintessential Chon album for me. I'm so glad there's no rerecorded old tracks, that was frustrating when I got Grow in and saw that there were 4 older tracks that got retracked and recorded. I find it such a waste to go back to old material unless it's a project to pay tribute to a milestone in a band's career.

    The featured songs are incredible, Berry Streets and Nayhoo are so catchy that I haven't been giving the other tracks more attention. Overall a great album and I absolutely love it front to back. The track that I enjoy the least is Glitch.

    I've legit listened to this album over thirty times, sometimes two or three times in a day lol. It's just so good, the arrangement of the songs is a perfect pace and that ending of Wave Bounce, god damn. It's like a lullaby and as someone who grew up on the coast of Florida, it really evokes some imagery of the ocean and the beach back home, just letting time slip by.

    The songs also feel more cohesive, like the overall song structures are just better written than their previous efforts. There's no way to choose a favorite song but the solo in Waterfall, the opening riff of No Signal (and Erick's tasty riff with those bends), the middle break of Here and There, and The Space are probably my favorites.

    Such a great album, surprised more people aren't talking about it.

    Surprised there's no interest in this new album, been listening to it all week. Almost done transcribing Gift, really love all the tracks.

    I need to sit down and really digest it this week. Honestly, I still love and prefer CHON's earlier, distorted guitar stuff. That being said, of course there's always gonna be cool shit that blows me away in each new album. Any favorite songs? I really dig the dark, classical intro in Pitch Dark.
