Viewfinder64 This album is an absolute masterpiece. Beacon is one of those songs that feels like it should be the anthem for humanity. It feels important. It doesn’t matter what’s going on, that song comes on and I’m screaming the words through bitter sweet tears. It’s not often that you find music that does that to your soul anymore. Favorite track: Beacon.

Jack Grimes Feels like being at a patio party with my parents, absorbing conversations about things I'll understand when I'm older. Warm, comforting, oddly centering.

selflimited This song has all the feelings of an end of film credit song in all the best ways. Like the first 40 seconds is where the protagonist would come to the climax of all their hard work being paid off and then boom, drums come it, cut to black, roll credits.

Or at least, that's how I set it to a script in my head! Favorite track: I Want the Night to Stay (Idiot Glee Cover).
