This might be my most anticipated upcoming album, and I almost couldn't even bother finishing that. These guys are crazy talented, so I really hope this super bland song isn't indicative of the...

No Goo Goo Dolls? Don't know if they count as "partially forgotten", but they seem about on par with Matchbox 20 in terms of visibility these days.

They use a ton of backing vocal and instrument tracks live (you can especially hear it on "think we better go"), but they're also definitely all singing/playing their parts. Matty has said in...

Honestly, this is one of the few things they've done that misses the mark for me. Feels like they had a cool idea for a video and a single to release and just combined the two. Even with the...

TBS' strength has always been their bridges ("Cute" being the quintessential example). That was one thing that changed on New Again and hasn't been captured since, I think. New Again and ST are...

I'm with you 100% on the "super clean safe alt-rock" aspect; the band has played it remarkably safe on the self-titled and this new single (and, to a lesser extent, on New Again as well). That being...

Wow, thanks a lot for the super in-depth response. Everything about that looks better, so I'm definitely going to give it a shot. I'm also an album-oriented listener, but even some of my all-time...

Can you explain what makes Rdio more "album-centric" than Spotify, like you said in that blog? I've used Spotify and never even tried Rdio, but I've never noticed anything unsatisfying about the...

My bad, I somehow missed the "more to come" part when I copied it. New post up today that added:



Jeff Friedl is the live drummer for Ashes Divide. Still hoping this is tied to new APC music.

The band had this message encoded on their site:



They spelled their name wrong, but I sincerely hope this means more APC music is on the way.

I loved "Going through Changes" and was surprised that the band just disappeared. Will have to check this out now, thanks!

These songs (including the last album) all kind of sound the same to me. The music is very pretty, but I'd be psyched to hear him mix it up a little bit.

I loved the cartoon even though it scared me as a kid. I think it had something to do with the way it was animated and that scene where Oblio's getting bounced around by the fat sisters.

From the album, "M.O.N.E.Y.", "Settle Down", and "Menswear". The singles are in the same category, so I just had to pick from the "new" songs.

If you add in the EPs it gets much harder. I'd do...

I'd go with "There Is No Mathematics", which sounds like NTFP b-side to me. The dancy beat and synths make me skip it every time.

The lyrics might be a little off for Cities, but production-wise it fits so perfectly on there.

I don't know, I find that that's the easiest blanket term for referring to a lot of the music I listened to in the early 2000s. I think an argument can be made for lumping Coheed, Underoath, TBS,...

I don't know, "More of You" is pretty atrocious. But in general, I agree, it's a much better album than the last two.

First time I've seen this acknowledged; definitely an under-appreciated aspect of their sound. Also, the layered drums in "Talk!" are perfect.

I think these guys peaked with some of the songs on BTKWYA, and so was crushed when they decided to call it quits. RRN and SDBT serve different purposes for me, RRN being the catchier, nostalgic one...
