Cassette.......okay. Sounds like pretty much what I'd expect, still kinda miss their older sound.

These guys went out of their way to dissolve their popularity with Congratulations. Was hoping for the old sound but alas..

Also cassette won't be brought back like vinyl.

Meh. Seems like they really want to avoid being mainstream again.

how so.. have you listened to their first album? besides time to pretend and kids, the rest sounds very similar to Congratulations. I really don't understand why people were so against their last album.. honestly, listen to the songs besides their singles and you'll see where that album is coming from. I don't think they ever had ambitions to be mainstream, nor are they trying to avoid being it. Not trying to come off like a snob, but if people truly liked their debut.. they wouldn't have been surprised by Congratulations at all.. Not saying you in particular, but I feel like most people only know this band by their two "mainstream" singles, which are both very different then the rest of their material.

Well said, I tell people that all the time.

I'm so happy they ditched their bro fanbase. Seriously, listen to literally anything else (even their old demos) besides Kids, Electric Feel, and Time to Pretend, and you'll stop whining about some "old sound" that never really existed. Congratulations was such a fantastic, criminally underrated album, been looking forward to this for a while.

Cassette? How hip. How about put another song on 8 track.
