"Why have I not heard of Fair To Midland before?"
"Where have you been all my life?"

The questions posed by Susan in her Arrows & Anchors review continue to reverberate in my head. In fact, I still can't understand why Fair To Midland is so unknown, despite releasing quality stuff since 2002.

I still remember being blown away with this album. Very SOAD-like, but original as hell. + One of the few bands who manage to write decent lyrics!

^ I'm obsessed with 2011's Arrows & Anchors and mean to check out their back catalogue. Glad to hear a good thing about this one!

Thank you for reviewing Arrows & Anchors!!! In the process you have rekindled my love of this album and introduced me to another amazing album. These are pretty much the only albums I've listened to all week. I am now on a mission to obtain a copy of the album before this one. Thanks again

This album came in today's mail and I'm SO pleased with it. Arrows & Anchors is even better but that's progress, right? Fables From A Mayfly is just wonderful also and it's so great to see part of the band's evolutionary path. Still baffled as to why I hadn't heard their stunning music until just this year.
