It must really suck to be Four Year Strong right now.

This sounds like more of a natural progression, but in a good way. Glad about that.

Still, songs are just good, not anything special. That's it. They sound like an any ol average pop punk band with awesome production. Other than the little bridge for "Ill walk it off" it doesn't have what made Mutiny! and TWBTDOU so damn good. It just doesn't have what made SYG so special the first time i listened.

If this is what the next record is going to sound like, it could be real huge for them. More than just a bounce-back.

Yep

Yeah I have to agree with this
Both of them are very solid pop-punk songs but I just feel like this band is loosing its identity a bit
Their hardcore influence is all but gone, and with that the energy in the songs has decreased

The bridge in the second song is a throwback to what I love'd about SYG but I'd take Mutiny, The Fallen, This Will Be the Death of Us, Echo's etc over these new songs any day

So they realized wnat a disaster their last album was?

I wonder if it's too late for them?

ghelms88 04/24/12 08:34 AM

Awesome, awesome stuff. So excited for the new album.

schapsy2 04/24/12 08:35 AM

YES YES! These are AWESOME. Thank you guys for going back in this direction - the production on these songs sounds so rich and deep compared to the last album. Great job!

Ryan Dennehy 04/24/12 08:35 AM

Enjoyed these on my initial listen. We'll see how the album is.

This is also one of the first times I've enjoyed Chad's production.

Boom.

Can't wait to get out of school to hear these. BABE was mediocre at its best, but the reaction to these looks very positive so far.

JPA917 04/24/12 08:40 AM

Cannot wait to give this a listen. My history professor needs to shut up.

misguidedmugen 04/24/12 08:42 AM

Never really listened to this band, seen them like on the Fall AP Tour this past year and really like their set.

These songs make me want to get into them for sure.

cwhit412 04/24/12 08:44 AM

First song is so boring. Second one is much better. I miss the energy from TWBTDOU. still can't see how people dislike that album.
