Ahhh I hope we get some info on the new album soon, but it might be hard for them to live up to Forget and Not Slown Down in my mind. I am sure I will love it anyway.

"NO ONE SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM CAUSE I DON'T LIKE IT!"- rkpenguin

Anyway, Forget And Not Slow Down is my favorite album from the band, but they've always gone in a bunch of different directions with their music and I've been really into pop music recently so I will probably like this album.

I know, I've been trying to talk some sense in to some of those people but they are being pretty dense. Do they not understand what first impressions are?

Also, Thiessen announced the title of the album is Collapsible Lung at a show.

Haha, I know. I said the opposite, and just said fans would react like some people reacted in this thread (last couple pages). Geessssh.

from what i've heard live i can hear the difference and i'm expecting pretty cookie cutter pop, but i don't really mind. i don't hear anything i really don't like and i doubt thiessen really minds polarizing this audience, aha. trying to keep the band alive.

If I'm honest, hearing all this about it being super cheesy and "fun" and unlike FANSD bums me out because that album/"Terminals"/"What Can I Do" is my favorite sound from the band.

Even so, mmhmm is a close second favorite for me, and even FANSD had "Candlelight" and "Savannah," which were about as playful as that album's vibe would allow. At the end of the day, I doubt this will be my favorite thing they've done (though, hey, I haven't heard ANY of it, so yeah), but I expect it to be one of 2013's better pop releases.

Now if I could just hear a single or something...

Indeed. I love the perfect mix of playful and melancholy, and also how it builds and releases (especially between "Oasis" and "Baby").

Savannah is so good.

Weird that they named the album Collapsible Lung

Other than Tate where are you guys hearing this? What da heck, I want to listen to it. Everything about it being more poppy excites me. Five Score is my favorite album by them and I realize i'm probably the only one who feels that way.
