As this awesome Band is releasing their 6th studio Album 'The Century of Self' on February 23rd. I just wanted to know if anyone of you guys & girls has come to like or love their music over the years. :)

I personally listen to their music since I first heard 'Mistakes & Regrets' of their 2nd album: 'Madonna'. I think they are one of the most underrated Bands of our time & they deserve more attention & love by music fans. A lot of people should "Fall Out At The NickelPanic Disco" and finally listen to some real talented and devoted musicians. :lol:

    I saw them live several years ago and they were very good.

    I like them but the past couple albums I thought were just okay, I'm hoping they come back strong with this album. Source Tags & Codes is in my top five albums of this decade.

  • I have seen Conrad and the gang 3 times now and they never disappoint. I heard the EP Festival Thyme they release before this album and there are some great songs on there. Hopefully this album is better than So Divided. I could not get into that album
  • I absolutely Love 'Worlds Apart', Souce Tags & Codes' & 'Madonna' I think those are their 3 best albums. It took me some time to get into 'So Divided' but it grew on me and nowadays I like it although it disapointed it me at first. :) Good to see that some of you people are into Austin's finest Band!

    As I mentioned before this song started it for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgqEWJ8AC9o
  • They'll be in Atlanta on Feb 24 and I'm going to see them at Criminal Records for an in-store performance then later on that night for the actual show.

    The album is streaming here btw...

    Relative Ways off of ST&C got me started on this band and I haven't stopped following TOD since then.

    I can't decide which album, ST&C and Worlds Apart, is better. They are equally awesome in my opinion.

    So Divided was a weak output by them. Something was off throughout that entire album.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying The Century of Self. This is a return to greatness.

  • I am going to seem them in SLC. This will have been the third time I have seen them. I have been patiently waiting for a leak and nothing yet. It comes out Tuesday I think
  • Now that they've dumped that dickhead label of theirs, I expect awesomeness.
    Judging by the Festival Thyme EP, expectations should be exceeded.

    I've seen Trail of Dead twice in Philly and once at De Melkweg in Amsterdam . Definitely plan to catch them when they're next in the Philly area. They're tremendous live.

    like i said I love this band, and have listened to it over and over and cannot get into it... Worlds Apart was the last album I liked by them, so divided was pretty weak too... although thats just my opinion. I do however have the neck of a guitar that was smashed during there last Lollapalooza performance in 05?? hanging on my wall.

    they will NEVER make an album that could touch Source Tags...
