I agree 100% that line made me super excited for the new album even though IDOTG was the last album I truly enjoyed.
The problem with getting excited over how he describes an album before it's released, is that it never turns out that way. Before he said S/T was supposed to be the Most Say-Anything-y album and truly show who Say Anything was and now hes saying it was kinda their attempt at mainstream, and before he said AMD was his return to the angsty-ness of IARB and now hes saiying it was just kinda songs he felt like doing. SO I'll take what he says with a grain of salt, But always excited for new SA release, there are always atleast a few good songs on each album.
To be fair, I remember Tate once saying AMD was the album fans have been waiting the band to make since IARB.
Either way, it was still good but the first album of theirs, other than Baseball, that I didn't feel was amazing from start to finish.
