alanneilson8 Such a great piece of music and released on Bowie’s birth date too. What a present. This was well worth the wait. Looking forward to hearing the vinyl soon as well.

Mythelyae Been following these two guys for the past 15 years or so, and while I can argue that it's not yet my favourite, Stages is definitely a solid and coherent album. Will be listening to it for a long time from now on!

owenwilkinson Always loved this band. But this album and the meaning behind it really does mark it out as their best yet. Combining their usual indie melodies and great song writing with a really tough and personal subject behind it.
