New Again for sure. More people are warming up to the record, but many TBS fans still can't help comparing it to the group's back catalogue when judging the album's music, leaving them to criticize it much more harshly than if another band wrote and released it.

Other albums that come to mind:

Bad Religion - No Substance
The Offspring - Splinter
Rise Against - Appeal To Reason
Smashing Pumpkins - Machina/The Machines Of God
Underoath - Lost In The Sound Of Separation.

Splinter was a fucking great album. The last good one they made.

The album had way too many joke songs. If they just would have been cut, the Offspring would have had a phenomenal punk record.

The band wrote a lot of what was creatively, their best work, but it just got diluted by silliness.

I mentioned that because Max said something about the album being in the spirit of Is A Real Boy, and that let people down. For what it is, I think it's a solid record.
It's the first SA record I heard, and having listened to it in its own context, I find it quite enjoyable.
