ah, La Dispute,, easily my fav0urite band,, i have many 0ther bands that c0me cl0se 2 my number 1 fav0urite band,, but n0ne can pass them.
the year was 2016, i was in 8th grade. back in the days when i used pand0ra 2 listen 2 music, i had been having a bit 0f a t0ugh time in middle sch00l like m0st pe0ple d0. i wanna say they 1st sh0wed up 0n my twenty 0ne pil0ts radi0,, the 1st s0ng i ever heard was King Park
its a pretty p0werful s0ng,, especially the line repeated at the end "can i still get into heaven if i kill myself" w0w,,, idk it jus kinda stuck 0ut 2 me,, i started listening 2 m0re 0f thier s0ngs an then 4 christmas that year i decided 2 buy the 3 albums they had 0ut at the time 0n CD, this is what started my CD c0llecti0n. n0w,, when i b0ught the CDs,, i hadnt actually listened 2 like m0st 0f thier s0ngs,, s0 i just ended up listening 2 th0se CDs 0n repeat,, cus they were kinda the 0nly CDs i had at the time,, i have a pretty specific mem0ry listening t0 thier 3rd album 'Rooms of the House' when i g0t my 1st BJD in 8th,, which is an0ther pretty,, s0lid thing in my pers0nality and life. see the thing i l0ve s0 much ab0ut La Dispute th0,, is that i can listen t0 them in alm0st any m00d,, i can be depressed 0r pissed 0ff or happy,, h0wever i feel,, i can listen 2 them. this c0mbined with the fact that ive pretty c0nsistantly listened 2 them 4 ab0ut 4 years,, is why they are my fav0urite band.
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair is La Disputes 2nd album. this album is,, s0 fuckin g00d,, its m0re 0n the em0/scream0 side.
ah,,, Rooms of the House,,, my #1 c0mf0rt album,, like,, yall d0nt even kn0w, this album is s0 imp0rtant 2 me. it was the 1st full La Dispute i listemed 2, back in 8th grade,, i used 2 play this CD 0n repeat like,,, alm0st every nite 2 help me sleep. i listened 2 it s0 much an s0 l0ud i blew 0ut the speakers 0n my 0ld CD player,, it can make me pretty nolstalgic sumtimes, mainly 8th grade, makes me think ab0ut walking h0me fr0m sch00l,, sitting at the park 4 an h0ur after sch00l cus i didnt wanna g0 h0me. anyways,, i kn0w like,,, n0thing ab0ut music in technical terms s0 i may jus s0und dumb, but the pr0gressi0n 0f the album jus,, helps me get shit 0ut an calm down, it starts 0ff a bit harder with the 1st 2 tracks 'HUDSONVILLE, MI 1956' and ' First Reactions After Falling Through The Ice' an then calms d0wn a bit with 'Woman (In Mirror)' which is 1 0f my fav0urite s0ngs 0ff the album an La Dispute in general, it picks back up with 'SCENES FROM HIGHWAYS 1981/2009' then 'For Mayor In Splitsville' which is such a g00d s0ng, the verse
has kinda stuck with me 0ver the years, like,, h0w Jordan says it in the s0ng is jus s0,,,, g00d 2 me,, i jus really like the lyrics 4 this s0ng in general, an i guess i c0nnected with it a bit m0re wen my parents split, an s0rt 0f h0w unstable they were when i 1st f0und the album, the next track '35' is pr0lly 1 0f my least favs 0n the album,'Stay Happy There' is the last "harder" s0ng in my 0pini0n, and with 'THE CHILD WE LOST 1963' the album starts 2 calm d0wn a bit, its still a bit hard, but its usually where i finish 0ff being upset, its als0 1 0f my fav tracks 0n the album, the lyrics are jus,,, mmmmmmmmm,
i cant really paste the entirety 0f the lyrics,,, cus thats al0t,, but the lyrics are really g00d an well put togethr, i cant explain it,, jus listen 2 the s0ng an the w0rds,,, anyways next is 'Woman (Reading)' s0und very similar 2 'Woman (In Mirror)' an i like that,, it balances 0ut the album pretty well, its nice, als0 1 0f my fav s0ngs in general,,, ah the last 2 s0ngs, 'Extraordinary Dinner Party' and 'Objects in Space', Dinner Party is nice,, wraps up the album pretty well, menti0ns things talked ab0ut in 0ther s0ngs 0n the album, an transiti0ns in2 0bjects in space VERY WELL, the transiti0n is 100% my fav0urite part 0f the album, its n0t as g00d if u listen 0n y0utube but 0n CD,, MWHAAAAAA CHEFS KISS DELICI0US,, 0bjects in space is very calm, kinda like sp0ken w0rd, theres a specific lil change in the music at 2:25 in the s0ng an its jus,, s0 perfect t0 me, ill listen 2 the s0ng 0ver again if im n0t paying attenti0n 2 it a miss it, 0verall this is such a g00d album, it never fails 2 calm me d0wn when im upset, an is jus such an imp0rtant part 0f my life, and is h0nestly part 0f the reas0n La Dispute is an always will be my fav0urite band, i can listen 2 it in any m00d an the fact i usually listen 2 it when im upset d0esnt affect my m00d any 0ther time i listen 2 it, an all thier 0ther music as well, i def suggest listenig 2 it a few times an really feelin it,, 0n high v0lume 2 cus being able 2 hear the bass, drums, an guitar an shit all defined is s00000000 g00d. 10/10
