Really like this album, though I miss the short bursts and unpredictability of Shed more.

Really? Why's that, and did you prefer their other albums more?

CUZ IT DOESNT HAVE BREAKDOWNS DOOD

In all seriousness, my reasons for not loving this band are pretty bad: I dated a girl who was (and still is) absolutely obsessed with them, and was really annoying about her obsession with them. I took her to see them and Rise Against and all she would talk about was how much cooler and more indie Title Fight was during the rest of the show. She has a tumblr that is flooded with Title Fight quotes and pictures and songs, etc. Not to mention that the breakup wasn't particularly smooth and only seemed to add to her over-the-top love for them. So they've always just left kind of a bad taste in my mouth even though the music is fine.

I also only listened to this once through so maybe it'll grow.

I completely agree with Lefty being their best song.

Pretty fair review, I agree with the 85
I'm not sure if you just forgot to mention it but Jamie sings about 4 or 5 songs on here, and he also does write some lyrics from what I am aware of. I know I'm being picky but as a reviewer I feel you should at least acknowledge that somewhere in the review.
Other than that though, good review

I agree. That's probably their most enticing track.

Edit: Oops. I mean Leaf (the second track).

Nice job, Drew. I feel that there are just a few songs that are good, and then the rest is spectacular. It would probably fall around 85 or a tad higher for me, too.

Nirvana, Hole, Lemuria (to a lesser extent), etc vibes are present throughout the entire album in one way or another. It's really taken on a distinct and interesting style in that it feels like this is the 90s album TF have been wanting; they've nailed the guitar tones from the early alt/grunge scene perfectly. This is better than Shed, imo.
Agree with literally everything you just wrote

Three or four songs ont his record really stood out to me and I enjoyed them a lot. The others weren't really bad (well, maybe one or two were) but they just kind of ran together. However, the band deserves a ton of praise for the direction they took.

got this about a week ago and I've probably spun it 20 times. Absolutely love it.

I think every song has something great about it, but HITCF, Make You Cry, Lefty, In Between, and Numb are the best songs. Secret Society would be my least favorite if I HAD to choose. The guitar tone makes me happy.

Better than Shed.

Hmm, I've yet to hear anything from this band but judging from the specifics in this review, I should love it. Will definitely check this out.

I've listened no less than 50 times since getting it. Love it.

I think "Frown" is my favorite. Wish it was twice as long. So I just play it twice in a row each time.
