I admit that I came in a little late to this band, but I absolutely love this album. An awesome way to start off 2010.

What's with the hate for Dave from Fireworks? I love all the guest vocals.

I know this seems nitpicky since Lyrics got an 8.75, but I would definitely have given it a 9 or higher. The lyrics are what stand out most to me in this album, they're fantastic.

Other than that, a great review
I agree. Never listened to this band before this week (and this CD), but man the lyrics on here are like someone is writing down what's in my head.

i'm sorry but some of the songs felt too preachy
I'm trying to think of a better adjective than "preachy" but I know exactly what you mean.

Im liking the album so far, and im thinking it will grow on me even more.

I also like the whole concept of having one lyric as the centre of a whole album. 'Im not sad anymore, im just tired of this place'

Great album. I will be surprised if I enjoy any other new albums this year as much as The Upsides. I think the rating could be higher though, maybe around 91% I think this one will stand the test of time.

i'd say the standouts for me are "Washington Square Park", "My Last Semester" and "Melrose Diner."

I like the idea of having friends close out the album (reminds me of what The Forecast did a few years back), but one of the guys' voice, I'm not sure who, is so whiny and terrible that it completely ruins the whole ordeal for me. I just listened and it's the second guy. Bleh.

But yeah, this record is outstanding. Should be getting my preorder today.
yup, dave sounds really weird on anything that isn't a fireworks song haha

I hated this album at first, but after giving it another couple of listens, it's grown on me. Love this album.
