I'm not sure what the no-genre approach that you're explaining exactly is. But good review.

I don't like that you say this is the album that should have followed ...Is A Real Boy

I know not everybody connected with In Defense Of The Genre (personally I can listen to it start to finish no problem), but it has some of the best songs Max has written on it. If it was cut down to 12/13 songs, it easily matches ...Is A Real Boy and the self titled, but to do that would go against the point of it's overarching story/themes.

Also, I feel obliged to point out that you mention that the self titled doesn't stick to one genre as a plus point, when In Defense Of The Genre is equally, and I'd argue more varied, admittedly helped by the 27 track length


standout tracks of the self titled for me are Do Better (ok it's poppy, but the guitar solo part is killer), Cemetery, and Ahhh...Men for its ending.

I'll be the one to say it,...Is a Real Boy was not Say Anything's debut album. Pretty decent review though. I feel like a lot of people overlooked this release because it's not cool to like Say Anything anymore. However, I really enjoyed it.

i don't know if i'd say this album had no genre, it's pretty much pop most of the way through.

Aight...I don't agree with everything you said, but
Damn. This is a good review. Props, man. I really like this album a lot, and I feel like you more than did it justice despite what I disagree with you about (namely: I really like IDOTG, I think a buncha good shit besides this and METN came out this year).
But fuckthahatas...I like your intro thingy, informal though it may be.
If someone had to post the millionth review for this I'm glad it's you.
I'd be curious to know what you think of my review of this.
