I'm anxious to hear this album...but if the lyrics and song meanings will be the deciding factor...the bands and albums I love are the ones I can relate with...if the lyrics are too personal about the band and stuff...it won't explode.

I mean, I enjoyed the album. I guess the lyrics just don't do it for me. The message is good and positive, which is a nice change of pace. I guess the few rants on the opening tracks about how much he hated certain people kinda gave me a bad taste and came off as a self-pity statement. That is where he lost my credibility at least (for whatever that is worth, ha). But yeah I can see where the "I'm not sad anymore" message could hit on major levels with people.

Thanks for not being a dick and respecting my opinion by the way haha.
Mm yeah I can see what you mean, it could get a bit jarring with all that. It never really bothered me; infact, I found it pretty funny because one of the lines in my last semester PERFECTLY describes a good friend of mine to the T! Honestly, I had the Upsides on my iPod for about a year before I "got" it if you get me haha, I always thought melrose diner was a pretty jarring, self-centred song because I consistently missed the one single line of redemption ("I know he's what you need"). When I gave it a proper listen it opened up a whole new perspective on it haha! Also yeah the self-pityish theme is something I found was there for a bit, but hey, the album's about the upsides after all. It's about him getting over that, and I guess that's why it never really sunk in too deep over in my camp.

Yeah no problem dude! Each to their own, no point getting uppity about people's music tastes. Everyone's different!

If it's half as good as The Upsides this record is going to rule hard, but i'm sure Gospel will still be remain my AOTY.

I'm seeing The Wonder Years at their record release show in about two weeks. This review got me SO MUCH more excited to see them live once again and to hear this album. Good job on the review, man.

This is the record that launches them from a pop-punk band into something more. It's their Deja Entendu.

An improvement on the prior record, yes, but not nearly as much a musical/lyrical step away.

I liked The Upsides not revered it, but I'm really excited for this. I put all my faith in Thomas on this one and will now have a ridiculous expectation for this album.

Great review.

What's that last part mean? Haha.



Only meant that Fallon used to be my favorite reviewer on the site, but you are fast becoming the top scribe.

Keep up the good work.
