Oh, and their albums have little to no staying power with me. I remember thinking SWIR was the best pop-punk album I heard in a while, and in three weeks I forgot I owned it. Nothing Personal had the same effect.

Maybe you have some sort of Attention disorder. Especially with SWIR the songs on that album were catchy as hell. To this day I can't listen to those songs without singing along.

True story. I loved Nothing Personal for about 20 listens. Then that was it.

Just looked at John Fields production discography...meh...
Chase This Light by JEW is the only thing I will consider good on it. He's worked with some really crappy artist beside JEW. And CTL is in my opinion their worst album. Not really production wise though.

This is pretty soon but I saw it coming, Nothing Personal was such an uneven listen. I broke it into thirds aside from Weightless being an instant classic the record is Good, then ok, then there is the third that is honestly just bland. I really hope they put out a more cohesive effort, they're capable of so much more. ATL Im lookin at you, give me something good.

Not their fault. Hopeless really sucks at getting their artist radio play.

Yes this is very quick but i'm excited and feel like this will be some of their best work yet. Some of their best songs have been produced by Squire. So glad that there will only be 2 producers working on this. On NP there was like 5 and the record was good but it clashed.
neal avron is also doing a couple tracks for the record

Hopeless doesn't have a radio department, so it has nothing to do with them. A major pushed their songs to radio, Hopeless had zero involvement in that process whatsoever. They peaked at about 70, if I'm not mistaken.

The record didn't have a hit, plain and simple. There was no "Sugar We're going Down", "Great Escape" or "Swing Swing" on it. That is no one else's fault except theres...especially given the co-writes and produces they had lined up for that record.

Jumping into the studio this quickly is the best thing they can do to hopefully redeem from the mainstream swing and miss of "Nothing Personal".

I'm excited. It seems like many people here didn't enjoy their last two releases for more than a few days/weeks. I still listen to them, and they've had incredible staying power with me. I'm looking forward to the new record. That'll be ... what? A late summer release?
