I like this album a whole lot more than ABH, but it obviously isn't as good as ALIR. This record has the expected cheesey song here and there but there are many more gems than on ABH.
I personally think it is even better than ALIR. I know nobody will agree with me. I think lyrically it is on par but the musicianship on this album sets the bar for this band. I loved ALIR and liked ABH somewhat but to me this album takes the cake. I will just accept the fact nobody will agree but imo
Mayday Parade>A Lesson In Romantics>Anywhere But Here
Been into the band for a few years and ALIR has always been a classic to me. Always will I just think as a whole this is their best effort as far as self improvement and each member's performance.
