it came out at the height of their popularity and followed probably their most radio friendly release. therefore more people could hate it when it didn't live up to the TBS expectations
i dig a lot of songs off new again but i get why some people didn't like it. i always take each record for what it is and try not to compare it to previous releases. especially with the rotating band members. it doesn't seem fair.
super stoked for the new album. just saw them in Stroudsburg on Monday and they were pretty awesome.
