I was a huge fan of the debut, and want to love this one so badly, I just can't
You're right, certainly way too many sub-par tracks.
O well, gives me hope for a rebound record the 3rd time around.

Yeah, I really wanted to like it as well but just could not get into it.

Ouch. I agree though, major disappointment.

This is only $7.99 at Best Buy (when it comes out on 5/5/09) but even at that price I'm not sure I can justify a purchase. I picked up their debut late last year and got pretty excited about this release. Excellent review, you stayed completely neutral and didn't shit on the album like many people on this site would (just to show how expert their music tastes are). I got a free download of "Statistics" yesterday from their site and that track is pretty good. From the first time I heard "Never Walk Alone" I began to lose hope in this album. Looks like Closure in Moscow and The Dangerous Summer are the ones to get on 5/5/09.

I'll have to edit it then when I get home. Everywhere I looked said today. Oh well, a week early doesn't matter too much.

Nicely written review, pretty much hit the nail on the head for me. I gave the band a shot but couldn't get past the lackluster lyrics and filler.

I dont agree with this review at all but its well written. I thought their first album was bland and thought this one was much better. I might be the only one who thinks this though.

haha, the joy of opinions. I can definitely see where you are coming from but I am also a fan of the bands you listed in the recommendations (aside from RJAs latest album that I thought was terrible). I felt the different key signatures (from what I could tell) made it interesting. My favorite track being Friends and Lovers.

I did when I first listened to it and now I dont. John Feldmann ruined them.
