The worst thing about this review is that I agree with pretty much all of it. Some of these songs (mostly the title track) really made me wonder if the band gave a fuck at all while writing. What really worries me is how consistent the mediocrity is throughout the album. There's not one song really worth listening to for me. This feels like the slip-up that should have been an awkward transition between Keep This To Yourself and Listen And Forgive if it had to be in their discography.
I'm already anxiously waiting for their next record and hoping that this is just the awkward transition between Listen and Forgive and something else.

I love Transit, but the album is a major let down.... This review is SPOT on... the album is pretty bad and at most times boring. There are times where the "Listen & Forgive" Transit comes out, but you gotta get through a lot of bad to get there just like the review says... cant believe how lame and boring the album is... and the analogy of 'if this was a new band, id totally forget about this band.' it couldnt be more true.... definitely looking forward to the misser ep though : )...

this is a contender for most accurate review of all time. album's not that good. i think the production is a really big part of that, but the songwriting's also not quite at the level it could be. "nothing lasts forever" is decent, but it's almost all downhill from there.

Pains me to agree with this review, save for the rating

4/10 is just below average. No redeeming qualities would be like a 20%.

Also, I like the title track

Maybe one day people won't put so much weight on the score. The number means nothing, the review is what's important.

i wouldn't agree with the person above, who said it's just below average. a 4 is really low for me to give. but like...it's not a 3 you know? or a 2 or a 1? haha. there's some redeeming qualities in there obviously...mainly the two first released songs and parts of other tracks. there are extremely short segments that i really like, then something goes wrong...it makes for a frustrating listen

Isn't a 5 considered average though?

I guess I'm a part of the extreme minority that actually likes this album haha. As much as I was hoping for a L&F Part 2, I'm happy enough with this. At least Misser and Long Lost should be great.

i'd say a 7 is more average. maybe that's just me - kinda like school grading? i dunno. i don't pay too much mind to the score, i think what i wrote about the record does a pretty good job of getting my thoughts across

Well written review

I would have agreed with this upon my first listen but the album has started to grow on me a lot. It's still disappointing and it's still easily my least favorite Transit release but it's not horrendous. Weirdly the title track is starting to grow on me but I can't help but skip Hang It Up and Hazy those are just bad.

I'll always love this band and KTTY will forever be one of my all time favorite records

Yeah, review does the talking. Just wondering because the scoring method seems to vary among staffers
