Development is the catalyst for warring among music fans, especially when it's mistaken for regression. Some are afraid of change, or cling desperately to a band's original sound with closed minds and plugged ears. I'm certain these types of fans will tar and feather Mama, I'm Swollen. However, that does not make it a bad record; just one that popular music critics will label as 'emo' and throw to the dogs, and fans will moodily swill nonsense about it's departure from previous success Happy Hollow. Cursive takes a rather pessimistic tone with this one ('Sad Hollow' if you will), but I certainly wouldn't lump them in with the angsty eyeliner crowd; this sounds to me more like a mid-life crisis for the indie rock veterans. Considering the shelf life of artists these days, once a band turns fourteen, they are allowed to be a tad bit reflective and moody. Growing up is tough for everyone. ..Keep Reading.. - Joe Puglisi Cursive on Tour 05/18/09 - Academy 3 - Manchester, UNITED KINGDOM 06/18/09 - Nutty's - Sioux Falls, SD 06/19/09 - Dahl Fine Arts Center - Rapid City, SD 06/20/09 - Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company - Billings, MT 06/21/09 - The Other Side - Missoula, MT 06/23/09 - Neumos - Seattle, WA 06/24/09 - Wonder Ballroom - Portland, OR 06/26/09 - The Boardwalk - Orangevale, CA 06/27/09 - Great American Music Hall - San Francisco, CA 06/28/09 - El Rey Theatre - Los Angeles, CA 06/29/09 - Glass House - Pomona, CA 06/30/09 - Beauty Bar - Las Vegas, NV 07/01/09 - In The Venue - Salt Lake City, UT 07/24/09 - Slowdown - Omaha, NE
