I think this is my favorite review of yours.

That being said, no mention of Jason really channeling Michael Jackson in melody structure and vocal styling, coupled with the Stephen George's production assistance. It feels very, very intentional and I love that so much.

Listen to "The Dope Beat" and hear Jason's phrasing on "Now I don't know what to do / how to do it" and that "Come on UH" at 1:52.

So many little things about this album make it for me.

Interesting review. Really don't agree with a word of it but a good read nevertheless.
The songs are flat and lack the energy and aggression of Fake History, a record I absolutely loved. I dont hate TBB but I think its a perfect example of the sophomore slump.
This is not to mention some downright awful lyrics, Im looking at you Phermone Cvlt.

Most disappointing record of 2013.

There are plenty of GENIUS lyrics though. You can single out the bad ones sure, but it's hard to ignore the others.

Also, this is their fourth album, so sophomore slump doesn't apply here

I guess the most apt comparison would be Underoath.
I don't really consider Act of Depression and that other one whose name I can't remember UO records.
Same name, different product.

I get what you mean, man. I just was kinda pointing it out. I apologize if it came off as dickish

White America, Fear and Used Cars are all awful.

White America is my favorite on the album. I really dislike Pheromone Cvlt because it sounds like a b side from Pierce the Veil

White America could be a Avenged Sevenfold bside so
Confused by this. I must have missed the cock rock solo
