Panorama is the fourth full-length album from Michigan natives La Dispute and their first with Epitaph Records. It can be difficult for punk and hardcore bands in particular to evolve and maintain momentum simultaneously the longer they stay active. In spite of this, La Dispute has maintained the same attitude they started with. They are a band figuring out how to live meaningfully while also trying to make meaningful art without compromise. Panorama, is another chapter in a discography that tells everyday stories in a remarkable way. It takes you deep within the heart of the world we live in, which may not always be a comfortable or comforting place to be, but at the very least it's a reminder that we're not there alone. Panorama is in many ways a continuation on a theme. It's a highly ambitious and deeply affecting body of work that filters narrative storytelling through a personal lens. It's heavier and weirder than previous efforts, taking the intensity of Wildlife and the patience of Rooms of the House and using them as pillars upon which to build something new. And, in doing so, they have broken through their own ceiling and set a new one.
