The reason I put Reach For The Sun in RIYL is more because listening to this record the first few times reminded me of the first few times I heard RFTS - the feeling where you know this is a record that changes everything and will define the rest of your year.
RFTS is one of my favorite records within the last five years - few albums will ever mean that much to me - but this just reminded me of that feeling of comfort upon hearing that album for my first time. That's why I put it in the RIYL - more of "Reminded Me Of"
I haven't heard the album yet, but I have to disagree. Reach For The Sun did not have garbage pop/radio attempts like "Go to Hell." We all know how good Jason's songwriting and metaphors are, however that song lacks both and was clearly meant ONLY to attract a new fans (which isn't a bad thing). However, RFTS was just an honest, well written album from start to finish. I have a feeling I'll be skipping a few tracks on CTD, something I can't say the same about for EIT and RFTS. The singles for CTD, thus far, have been garbage aside from Collide's hook. Hoping for better things from the album, because as a long time Go Radio fan, I'm worried.
