Yeah, it is weird too because before I clicked post I said to myself, someone is going to comment on that part instead of my comments on All Time Low. Go figure.
I see what you said about ATL..you respected them through their first couple releases, then lost faith with NP and now this. I can understand.
ATL released the CDs you like when they had the same if not a little more popularity than the bands you listed. Since NP, they're probably one of the most popular bands who haven't received any real airplay. Their music has changed a bit. Who's to say the bands you listed won't change when/if they get that popular? I don't see how you can like SWIR but hate this. The guitar work is thankfully evident again as much as it was on SWIR although slightly more produced.
Anyways, different strokes for different folks I guess. But the troll scores on this album are ridiculous.
