I don't mean this in a bad way, just different tastes, but that's probably a reason why I don't mind it (can't say I love it, but that's besides the point).. anybody who defended New Again probably isn't looking for the same things in music that I am whatsoever.
And no, this doesn't sound like it 'could have been on new again.'
No it really doesn't. It doesn't sound like a TBS song at all. I'm not saying I don't want bands to switch their style up, but I don't hear anything about this that makes it seem like TBS.
