I have a weird theory that maybe they put out this unmastered version so that if it leaked it wouldn't be the real thing. It's probably wildly off base but if you put out the unmastered versions of songs, claimed them to be the real versions, sent them to press, and just accepted that they would be leaked you would still have the actual finished product under wraps.

Crazy wishful thinking.

But then, Jack has the actual release does he not? And he still mentions how the production is lacking.

I've been really getting into this band lately. I think this album is awesome and I can't wait to finally see them next week

Interesting review. Really don't agree with a word of it but a good read nevertheless.
The songs are flat and lack the energy and aggression of Fake History, a record I absolutely loved. I dont hate TBB but I think its a perfect example of the sophomore slump.
This is not to mention some downright awful lyrics, Im looking at you Phermone Cvlt.

Most disappointing record of 2013.

I bought the CD at Warped. Production is crap.

i'll tell you right now i put maybe 10-20 seconds of thought into my score. it just doesnt matter to me, im much more concerned about the 5-6 paragraphs i just spent 3 hours writing.


i think a 5 star scale or a letter grade scale would be best.
I say AP.net drop single serving grades.

Awesome album, really well written review as well. Jason sounds great on this album while the instrumentals are on point.

It's much better than the YouTube rip, though still not up to par with current standards.

There are plenty of GENIUS lyrics though. You can single out the bad ones sure, but it's hard to ignore the others.

Also, this is their fourth album, so sophomore slump doesn't apply here

the production is on purpose. i kind of like that the sounds just hit you all at once. everything is mixed and mastered so perfectly these days. it's cool to have an album that isn't like that. we all know they can make a record like that if they want to next time.
