This album is great, it always seems when bands make a new album and its not as poppy or its energetic or they try something else people are so quick to bastardize it, this album is different but it's also from start to end a solid album. I personally love it. I think it's the same kind of shit as people calling "Daisy" or "Cassadaga" bad because they aren't "Deja Entendu" or "Lifted" but are still incredible albums.
it sounds exactly like a say anything album, I don't know what you're talking about. it's the songs that suck. maybe you're not a lyric person so it works for you just on a primal melodic page, but seriously there are some lines on that thing that sound like a 15 year old who doesn't even know what they are writing about.
