There seems to be a polarizing opinion on the album. I tried my hardest to make this review reflect the way I feel about it. I am a fan, as you can see by the 9 under reviewer tilt, but that doesn't mean that the album has changed everything about music. I really like it, but I can always see room for improvement. I can't really speak for an older person because I am not one, but the album struck me as one that would relate to a person who is finding themselves in the world of work or family-hood for the first time and is trying to figure out how exactly they fit in with that scene. That is why I thought it would relate to older people.
The album just feels very cluttered. There really isn't a consistent sound that the band achieves throughout the whole thing. I loved the direction they were headed in the opener. El Paso is an awesome track and a great opener, but doesn't give you a feel of the album at all. In fact, i'd say El Paso gives you the exact opposite feel that the rest of the album will give you. I must say though that "This Is All Now" is classic TBS.
