I've said it in the TBS thread, and I'll say it again- This is the best album the band's done since LN or New Again. If I were to describe it, I would say it is a mix of New Again, Where You Want To Be, and Straylight Run. You can tell John has much more of an influence on this record than on S/T, Shaun's basslines sound amazing, and Mark's drumming is better than ever. Adam hasn't sounded this good since Louder Now.
The reviews that said this was TBS "playing it safe" are absolutely full of themselves and don't seem to have even listened to this record- it's quite different from anything they've done.
All the way is the shit.....7.5/10....best drum performance of any of their albums
100% agreed. Fuck that electronic bullshit Valentine did on This Is All Now, and, if what Mark says in interviews is true, his previous fellow band members for restricting his drum writing. I didn't know he was capable of these kind of fills.
