I think you're undermining this album a little. Very few bands are still playing easycore at this point, and this album has songs that rival the heavy-hitters from 2006-2009. I'd only fault it on...

Unpopular opinion, but I actually really dislike I've Given Up On You. The guitar melodies are pretty, but the vocals are way too nasally for me to find it poignant or take it seriously. It's too...

He gave it a 7 at first but went on to say in his end of the year list that he overrated it and it was all but unlistenable at that point.

Eh, not really. Even the band said WSMFY was more of a moody rock record. Only like three of the songs on it sounded like Homesick.

I just never really use that term unless a song lacks a purpose in its lyrical content and sounds lazy instrumentally. To each their own

WSMFY is such a mediocre piece of garbage in comparison to this. I mean, I think it was an alright album (like a 2.5/5?), but come on.

Anyway, I'm really stoked about this return to form. The vocal...

They don't NOW, but you're gonna say songs like "Sasha" don't bear somewhat of a resemblance to TF's pre-Floral Green stuff? Before I checked out their self titled, their short bio even listed them...

Oh yeah, it's unrelated to this, but has anyone else noticed how they NEVER seem to incorporate songs from Arrivals & Departures into their setlists at this point? While I know "Broken Stars" was...

This album is definitely a grower but a big improvement on their earlier stuff. I always felt like they sounded more like a second-rate Title Fight (circa TLTYF) before and got a bunch of hype online...

It seems like there are a lot of ways to go about it. Even though it isn't a closer (should've been), I think ADTR's "Another Song About The Weekend" is my favorite song of this sort. It changes the...

I think this falls slightly short of Suburbia, not because it isn't more ambitious or has better songs, but because it has more weak points. "An American Religion" and "Madelyn" feel more like...

Interesting opinion. My favorite songs from the album are actually from the second half of the album, so I would say the top of it isn't as good, save for "There, There" and "Dismantling Summer". I...

I feel like if someone won't put any effort into explaining why they don't like a band and just calls them "shitty", then they don't deserve a longer response back. Not worth the trouble

He has the right to an opinion. Just because you don't agree with his negative opinion doesn't mean you have to be an ass and personally attack him.
