After hearing higher quality samples of the songs. I'm not COMPLETELY disappointed. Sure it's not the full length version of TTN but that album will probably never be made. Saosin has definitely tried for some poppier songs this time around, either due to pressure form the label or possibly they just like pop songs, but they aren't really bad pop songs just not what you'd expect from the band that wrote "Lost Symphonies".
There are still quite a few songs that have potential and with 56 minutes of music, I'm sure there is plenty to like in there. Well it seems I will be buying this album. But please Saosin, for album #3 comeback with something to really shut the haters up. Everyone knows you have the skill and talent to write a mind blowing record. Just don't take another 3 years to do it
I think I'll post full impressions sometime in the next two weeks. Once I have the album in my hands. thanks for reading. Share your thoughts in the replies, ya know if ya want to.
