    i’ve listened to the Brotherhood album. i really love it! some of the songs they did i had never heard them sing before, and listening to them surprised me and made the album that much better. i would give it 5/5 stars, but that’s just because i’m biased towards them lol. i’m glad you enjoyed the album though!
