Am I the only one who likes Reach for the Sun a lot more than War Paint? I wonder what I'll think of this release

I believe you are in the majority there. I like War Paint more though.

maybe I keep reading the vocal minority then? haha I feel like whenever I see this asked most people go with RFTS. it's all good, maybe it's somewhat evenly split?

I am def on the War Paint side, it just hit me way harder.

I didn't get as into RFTS as I did with War Paint, but I think RFTS is better as a cohesive piece.

That's my least favorite song on the album ... definitely don't see that doing anything in the mainstream. I don't think it's supposed to.
We Will Wait In The Fog is my favorite on the album one of my favorites they've ever written.

Meh. Weak lyrically and the vocal melody is painfully repetitive, there's nothing on this album that I'd say is better than the best of their previous albums. Couldn't name one song that I would say is the best they've done ...

Too safe. Won't see myself coming back to it much. Dunno how much more we'll even see these guys if they're not selling -- don't think this is gonna be the one.

Seeing your username gave the perfect analogy. This is the Allister of this generation of pop-punk.

And this is their blackout album.

I haven't heard the record yet but I have a feeling that this band has one more record after this to really break through, if they can't, it'll be rough. That, and they need to stay together. I think with this lineup if this record is just average, one more chance will solidify the sound. I agree that they need to switch up producers. They have the potential, I'll wait to hear "Golden Record" to put my opinion in stone.

Also, AJ needs to keep his vocals in shape. It's only been 4 years since RFTS and the change in tone & degree of raspiness is unbelievable.

Hey, don't knock Allister! "Somewhere On Fullerton" will melt your face off.
