Brian Glanville After two phenomenal albums – plus several fantastic EPs, singles, etc – and a twelve-year wait, I was unsure what to expect from Blue Blood, but I'm absolutely ecstatic over what Anderson and Harris have delivered. It’s hard to imagine hearing a better album in 2019, or 2020 for that matter. Favorite track: Saboteur.

Cameron Rostami I say without hyperbole that this is the single most anticipated album of my whole life. And it lived up to my absurd expectations. Good lord I missed Michael Harris and Daniel Anderson's collaboration. Idiot Pilot is life Favorite track: Mammoth.

Ian Cairncross This album is a nostalgia trip for me, and lives up to the expectations I had on its announcement. There's not as much screaming or breakdowns as the older material, but these are some solid tunes regardless. It's vaguely in the rock world with synthesizers and acoustic guitar making it unique. I'm so glad I bought this. If you've known their music since 2005, or you're just stumbling upon this, I think you'll enjoy the album Favorite track: Sideways.

lovepanda13 There's something so deep and passionate about every single song. Mammoth rips you open. Widespread Devastation made me get in my feelings and want to stick to my goals. Yeah I cried. Murderous is fire, I've never heard anything like it, made me dance and picture a whole movie in my head. Silver Needle, everyone is so beautiful and why can't people just realize. The Big Sleep made me feel like I was a noir detective contemplating the crimes of a gray city with so many problems.I just loved it all. Looking forward to telling everyone about it. Definitely plan to listen to it as many times as I want.

Max Greene 14 years ago I watched a bonkers music video on Myspace of two dudes beating the shit out of each other. My life has never been the same since.

Track Name: Bombs Away
Without any warning at all
Unseen by the morning light
It comes from all sides
The passing of tides
Indeed it's a lovers quarrel

Look out down below (x6)
Look out, look out, look out down below

It comes with the passing of time
Reunion of red and gold
Unhinged from the wire
We'll never retire
The damage will soon unfold

(repeat chorus)

It's a never ending slope
It's the ending of your rope
Rope
Track Name: The Pushover
Got a problem giving people what they want
Can't seem to tell them no anymore
And as crazy as it sounds
Happiness abounds when I'm told

Where to sit
How to eat
Where to live
When to sleep
How to walk
When to talk
Somebody please tell me

Yea I know, pathetic as it is
I can't really help being like this
Mostly its hazy, there's a reason I should quit
Its medically unfit, or so I'm told

When to speak
How to walk
What to eat
Where to sleep
How to resist the urgent response
Where to kiss
When I can watch

But you kissed my wounds
And sealed my doom
I'm your pushover
Push me over

Ask for things that you don't need
Your wish is my command and disease
Let me step out of your way
I would kill myself today
If it meant you'd be okay

Push me over
I'm your pushover
Track Name: Mammoth
Play me a song that's accompanied by
Powerful yet delicate
Stabs at your insides
Save for the weakness, I'm more then alive
I'm used to all that yellowness that's leaking from your spine

Before you decide where to lie
Can't you tell how impressed I am?
It's not going to kill you to try and repent
For your sins

Maybe the point is I'm totally fine
Now that you're not relevant
The elephant can die
Put it to rest just as soon as you like
Get used to no one helping you
You're perfectly unkind

(repeat chorus)

But it's not worth troubling
It's not worth troubling (x2)
It's not worth....
I confess everything

(repeat chorus)

But it's not worth troubling yourself
Track Name: Only so Much
Well there's only so much I can take half of the day
And it's harder for some to admit
Their irrational ways
But...

I don't wanna see you
I don't wanna have to deny myself of all the things I need
I don't wanna see you
I dont wanna have to insist upon the things that I can't change
Oh, I can't change

Well it's one hell of a push and a pull breathing for you
Cuz you took all the space that was left
Inside of this room
But...

I don't wanna see you
I don't wanna have to deny myself of all the things I need
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna have to insist upon the things that I can't change
Oh, I can't change

Well there's only so much I can take half of the day
And it's harder for me to admit my irrational ways
But...

(repeat second chorus)
Track Name: Sideways
Excuse the stench of my own
Pitiful excuse for a mood
It's second nature to be critical
Affection removed

Well I guess I could wait
For a chance to escape
But you're so sideways
Playing mind games

Consider this a lasting funeral
The flowers for you
Surround yourself with something beautiful
And they will approve

Well I guess I can wait
For a chance to escape
But you're so sideways
Playing mind games

You're so sideways
Desperate tirades
It's a crime (x2)
You're in your prime
Track Name: Asylum
Drifting in and out of consciousness
What is this about?
What kind of highs can an optimist achieve?

Massive padded walls
It's all a blur again
I'm scratchin' at them all
It's all a blur and then
C'mon and work with me
I'm on this
It could be worse
Dishonesty won't serve you now

There's a lock on the door and you probably should knock
It's not going to get you in
Even the sound of your voice when it drops
Couldn't disturb me then
Hasn't disturbed me since
What's with the shit eating grin?

(repeat chorus)

Cuz I'm not getting out

I'm begging you (x2)
I'm begging you for asylum

Massive padded walls
It's all a blur again
I'm scratchin' at them all
It's all a blur and then...
C'mon and work with me
I'm on it
It could be worse
Dishonesty won't serve you now

Cuz I'm not getting out...
Track Name: Murderous
It's taking shape
Meant for escape
What's the strangest thing you've ever heard?
Meet me here
The table is laid
It's a simple procedure

Fantasize
Those cameras eyes
Have got me watching you
Authorize and televise
You're murderous
It's so taboo

Separate
The feeling of hate
There's no telling what's in your blood
Took a drink
Said all the words
Turns out we're just creatures in the mud

Fantasize
Those cameras eyes
Have got me watching you
Authorize and televise
You're murderous
And so taboo
Track Name: Saboteur
Cease to raise a question
Or a phrase
Let the silence speak out your name
It's so desperate and so lame
You are saboteur

Casual war, which side are you on?
Depends on the day...

Please don't wait
There's no interest in your games
What a rapid fall out of grace
And it won't make a difference
You are saboteur

Casual war, which side are you on?
Depends on the day...
Depends.
Track Name: Widespread Devastation
Singin' the right notes
Saying the wrong things
Being the wisest man who wears a clowns face
It's just another phase
Is there another way?
You've got a strong pose
Hold it the right length
Let everybody know you're not so commonplace
It's just another phase
C'mon you've got the strength

So don't you break concentration
It's widespread devastation

Grab onto me real tight
We'll go the longest way
It's not your average ride unless somebody breaks
It's just another phase
Some days I'm wide awake
Reclusive dynamite
It blows up in your face
Destructive appetite
Want to assassinate
It's just another phase
Baby, you're JFK

So don't you break concentration
It's widespread devastation
(It's all around)

It's widespread devastation
There's no turning away
There's no second chance
This is your final take

It's widespread devastation
Don't break concentration
Track Name: Silver Needle
Stake your claim
You have it all
Cruel imitations see it through
Patiently wait
But all the while
There's nothing to improve
Is happiness derived when positives are trite?
Goodness awaits for your embrace
Come sit by its fire

Can't we all agree?
Does it have to be so difficult?
Everyone is beautiful

There's no shame in being small
Part of the thing that makes you, you
Don't hesitate to demonstrate the power of the truth

(repeat chorus)

With the words that you say
(Pronounce, pronounce)
With the things you portray
(Pronounce, pronounce)
From the voice you have known
(Pronounce, pronounce)
What's the point if you don't?
(Pronounce, pronounce)
Track Name: Aerospace
I used to be much more efficient
I could retain things in my head
No longer able
Something's missing
I can't remember why I was there

I'm just an ordinary person
I have opposing points of view
What doesn't kill you
Makes you wish it
Human condition
All you can do

Into the burning sun I face
Watching the world slip out in the waves
Can't you see all of this one day
Fades into nothingness
Aerospace

I used to be much less attentive
Couldn't remember words that were said
Now I am able
I am focused
Trying to make up time that we spent

Into the burning sun I face
Watching the world slip under the waves
Can't you see all of this one day
Fades into nothingness
Aero

Can't you see all of this one day
Fades into nothingness
Aerospace
Track Name: The Big Sleep
The feeling of love
So often denied outright
I'm searching for some
Sort of respite
From this boot to my throat

Let me up
Let me breathe
In a rage filled storm (x2)
Where we drift to sleep
To sleep

The feeling of angst
Somewhere so deep is stored
A catch and release
But circling ankles
With its teeth
Underneath

(repeat chorus)
