Amazing album, but in this edition particularly the sound is very flat, bass sound very low. A little disappointed

Yo don't pay the marked up prices on here. As of this morning, these are still available at https://idlesband.bandcamp.com/album/joy-as-an-act-of-resistance for like $25 after shipping.

Rottweiler sounds quite flat compared to the rest of the album.

This has to be the definite version of this record. While the deluxe edition come with some nice gimmicks, this one feels premium: nice and sturdy tip-on cover & gatefold, beautiful colour and good sound quality.

Dec18. 1st play through of this and I am very impressed - esp the first 1/2. Vocals/lyrics are very different, but cool.
Oct19. Well, 'Never Fight a Man with a Perm' and 'Danny Nedelko' have constantly been in my playlists since I first listened to this almost a year ago, and I love them still. 'Colossus' is a decent start to the album; I especially love the part near the end that sounds like a different song. 'Scum' rumbles along with a heavy dose of sarcasm to go with it. 'Television' is a cool song and should be on any modern mental health playlist. 'Great' is a cool reflection of people not willing to let go of the past and are afraid of change.
Reading about the album, I can't believe what the singer went through before its release - no wonder there is such brutal honesty on here and some dark subject matter, but it is the themes of love and unity that shines through. It would have been easy to write a negative album, and by the sounds of it, the band were on that path and then started again. 4/5

Agree that this could use a little bass boost, but otherwise sounds great.

Bought this in April 2019, the download card is no good. Seems Partisan and Drop Card have parted ways.
