  1. One of the most unique, reflective, darkly humorous, and brilliant records to grace ears in a while.

    The entire thing is a cathartic art project that feels like the moment of forced calm after an exhausting sob. [Feb 2014, p.92]

    Although most tracks on Try Me are taut and concise, they’re built around churning, sprawling riffs that feel far larger than the songs that contain them.

    Try Me is an album that does things completely on its own rather difficult terms and succeeds on those terms.

    With some fairly impressive singles leading up to release, i was immensely let down when this thing dropped. The recording is not very hot atWith some fairly impressive singles leading up to release, i was immensely let down when this thing dropped. The recording is not very hot at all. Very hollow, the bass and guitars are way too loud, drowning out the drums, but the drums are weak to begin with. Just way too limp sounding. Boring to listen to, as well as really bad vocals deliveries in spots. Way overdone. Almost like a weak demo. Weirdest of all though, there's a 40 minute interview in the middle and end of the album, broken into two parts. What in the hell. The pornstar interview is somewhat interesting, but totally off-putting and out of place. But despite this, it's probably the most interesting part of the album really. Expand
