How are they different from any other New Found Glory songs? The title track is the only one that falls noticeably short to me.

Awesome review, Thomas, and I am more than ready to devour this album in less than a week! I was expecting Drew to write this one, but it seems you've filled those shoes quite ably :)

By far my least favorite of their releases. I enjoyed the review though.

And I still really like the album.

Although I didn't enjoy the title track, I did enjoy the rest of the album. The chorus to I'm Not the One is crazy good.

Great review man, you were spot on with everything.

I love "Summer Fling, Don't Mean a Thing." Can't wait to hear it in full!

Also, another great review.

this cd is great, and while you say that no comparison is really necessary, i feel this is a lot stronger front to back than not without a fight. i also dont hate radiosurgery the song.

Man that chorus is a fucking jam.

Edit: Something I thought about slipping into the review but didn't because it is personal and irrelevant. NFG is the only band that makes me wish I was born a few years earlier - they played their hometown shows before they got huge like a half hour away from where I grew up! Some of the dudes in the band went to Douglas or JP Taravella High in Broward County - those schools are so close by that when I played varsity basketbal we would play them every year! Douglas beat us two years in a row when we were undefeated, I hated that team. But anyway, NFG is basically the quintessential hometown band for a lot of my older friends from the South Florida area. I wish I had been able to see them play small shows way back when.

Eh, NFG will always be NFG I guess. I almost feel like I've grown out of this mindless type of pop punk.

You hit the nail on the head with the last paragraph... you can favor whatever NFG album you want (besides Coming Home, I barely call that NFG) or say "so and so album was better than so and so) but at the end of the day, it is still NFG!

The simple truth is that NFG may not be bringing anything "new" to the table, but when the table is something they built way back when, does it even matter?!?! Radiosurgery IS NFG and it IS a great album, period!

This! Anthem of the Unwanted sounds like something off of NWAF or Sticks and Stones; Memories and Battle Scars sounds like a polished s/t song; and Map of Your Body sounds like something off of Catalyst. To be critical about this album is just dumb at this point!

I feel like people are starting to miss the point about pop punk bands haha!
