I don't know how I feel about this record yet. Sometimes I wish this band would take a few more chances musically, but when they do those songs tend to be the ones I skip over. There's some great song here, but there's also some clunkers. I think "The Whitest Lie" might be one of my least favorite Bayside songs to date. The group vocals at the end don't give me chills, they just make me want to turn it off and listen to "Dear Tragedy". On the other hand, this is still a better album than pretty much every band on this website will release this year.
