I still am baffled at how the members of this band feel that Sleepwalking was their most "immature" album, it makes no sense. I have been a fan of this band since they were called O Captain, My Captain (most of their fans probably thought they were always MMF) and it really saddens me that the members of this band look back on Sleepwalking and the EPs that came before it and think that they're basically crap. I am sorry but Sleepwalking was far more "mature" sounding than anything that has come after. It had some of the sweetest southern licks I have ever heard, and I still go back and listen to it pretty frequently. The guitar play between the two guitarists was genius on that album, something that has been lacking ever since...what has replaced it? That synth overtone crap that drowns out any musical talent they are trying to showcase ...but oh well, I guess they're happy, so I'll let them be.
Completely agreed. I wonder what their first vocalist thinks about their new material.
