This was such a great album that played alot of the soundtrack for my summer of 2012. It was an album that just lifted spirits and anywhere it came on sparked sing alongs and amongst my friends just seemed to bring everyone closer. The band delivered with this release and I think they gave off the exact energy to fans that they must have been feeling when they were writing and recording it. This was on repeat for a ridiculously long time for me and I began to think to myself how is this band ever going to top this album and will I ever be ready to move on from it when they start releasing new stuff. No sooner had i thought this they started releasing new singles and sure enough it just wasnt "The Upsides" material and I just couldnt get into it the way this album had got me. Its odd to say but "The Upsides" was such an game changing album for me that it ruined this band for me.
