tbh I’m also wondering why that person told TWIABP to start with The Battle of Hampton Roads? Like, that song is amazing but that’s like saying someone “you want to run your first race? run this marathon. also play a bagpipe solo halfway through”
Anonymous said: I didn't really like The Monitor on the first listen either, but then later in 2011 I listened to it again focusing on the lyrics and really got into it. The whole "Civil War concept album" part seems ridiculous and pretentious on first mention but they actually pulled it off and made it work.
that makes me give even less of a shit.
