My Pierce The Veil Purchase

Last weekend I stayed with some family in Aberdeen as it's my school half term holidays and I hadn't seen my sister in a while. We had a good time wandering around the shops, going to the cinema and warming up in Starbucks.

Most of the time when I go to HMV I never find what I'm looking for, even though it's my favourite shop.  They either don't have the artists that I'm looking for or if they do it's albums that I already have.

So as you can probably guess, I was happily surprised when I found a Pierce The Veil album, an All Time Low album, a Fall Out Boy Album, an Of Mice & Men album and a Tonight Alive album all under the one roof, and none of them are albums that I already own and they're all albums that I really want.  I was extremely close to embarrassing my family by squealing with delight when I found them all.
Although this made me extremely happy it also annoyed me because I only had enough money to buy one.  Which left me with a very difficult decision.
But in case you didn't figure it out from the title of this post, I got Pierce The Veil's Collide With The Sky album and This Is A Wasteland DVD.

So instead of having a playlist for this month I've just decided to basically make Collide With The Sky my album for the month, I love it so much. 
I already knew a few of the songs from the album but one of my favourite things about getting a new CD is discovering the songs that I've never heard before.  I've not been a fan of Pierce The Veil for very long but I'm really starting to love their music and watching the This Is A Wasteland DVD was really fun.

I don't want to say that I have any 'favourite' tracks from the album because if I'm honest Collide With The Sky is one of those rare albums where I can say that I enjoy listening to all the songs. But if I had to choose a favourite from the songs I hadn't heard before I got the album then I'd have to say Props & Mayhem or, The First Punch or, One Hundred Sleepless Nights or, Stained Glass Eyes and Colourful Tears (basically you get my point when I say I can't choose a favourite because these are all the songs I hadn't heard before I got the album).

I would definitely recommend giving this album a listen too, whether you're a PTV fan or not. And whether you like this genre of music or not, because it really is a beautifully well thought through album and that's obvious when you listen too it.  I love this album and I know that it's an album which means a lot to many people, me included.
