Hands down, the easiest 'best CD of [insert year here]' I've made since 1987 (...George Michael's FAITH - duh).
I love every single track off this disc.
I love it so much it got me back into paying for music.
I love it so much I had to STOP listening to it because I was connecting so deeply with the tracks, many about lost love and heartbreak, I was creating drama in my own life just so I could feeeeel the lyrics more.
BUT I STILL WENT BACK - it's that good!
It is like everything I love about the 80s, 90s, 00s, wrapped up in a thoroughly modern DIY independent music 2012 experience.
To feel the full impact, you really need to dload every remix EP and especially the BLUEPRINT EP with stripped down versions of some tracks (I actually prefer "Debris" on Blueprint to the version on Make Me Believe in Hope.) Listen to me, like a nerd talking about Star Wars.
REAL TALK: I had a religious experience listening to Disco Moment 12" where I actually felt my body levitate towards the sun, going from a very deep dark depressing place to a warm hopeful bright existence - put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Download everything BRIGHT LIGHT x2 and feel what I feel.
