An Average 26% for a score makes me not want to spend money buying it.
noted. i dont mind it. I feel like people need to just look/listen at the CD by itself... the problem with Saosin is that no matter what they put out, people keep comparing it to their older work... but I love and respect those guys so thats just me.
I personally liked ISOSG. True, the album was not as exciting as Anthony Green era work or the S/T (which I loved every song), but there are still gems on this ablum.
The mixes of the songs that came off of the Grey EP for the album are not as strong as the mixes from the Grey EP itself, and I love the song "Keeping Secrets", but do not like the new vox on the Album mix. Cove's sreaming breakdown section on the Grey EP blew me away and was very good and exciting, but it was not as powerful on the album version. Still, "I keep my secrest safe" and "Worst of me (Love Maker)" are still good songs in my mind.
The true shining track from the album is "On My Own" as it is the closest to the previous catalog and has an amazing breakdown and excellent progression. I love this track personally, and feel it is a very strong showcase of Saosin's talent.
