Cool. Hopefully they'll think about expanding their sound and sort of finding their own sound this time instead of sounding like every other band in the Run For Cover/No Sleep scene. Not really their fault though. It seems all young bands these days want to sound like Title Fight or Balance and Composure.

This is so contradictory. You say you want them to "find their own sound" and then turn around and say that a bunch of other bands want to sound like them? How does that make sense?

If they're back with Will, their sound isn't going far. Unless they really go outside their zone, I see it being regular ol' Title Fight. And I'm cool with that.

Define "regular ol' Title Fight," because The Last Thing You Forget is miles away from Shed which is miles away from Floral Green which is miles away from Spring Songs.

I'm Hopeful that it's either it hits harder than the upbeat numbers on Floral Green or continues down the slower root from that album.

Have you ever given Hum a good listen? The only Title Fight song that bares any similarity to Hum is, maybe, 'Head in the Ceiling Fan'... and even that song has much more in common with a band like Codeine than it does Hum.

Yeah, I'm speaking specifically to that song. Sure, they don't do that sort of stuff every song, and I can see where you're coming from with Codeine, but you're being really obtuse if you don't think the influence isn't super obvious.

Like it's just coincidence that every tumblr kid started jocking Hum after Floral Green came out. I like the band a lot, but it made me miss Shed because it didn't seem like they were throwing their influences too heavily on display.

at first I was thinking A-F Records, and I was gonna be like "weird." But Anti- is even weirder of a label for them.

Yeah, I get what you're saying. As much as I enjoyed Floral Green, it was kind of a hodge podge of influences being worn a little too hard on their sleeves. Hopefully this new one is less of "This song sounds like Hum. This one sounds a lot like Jawbreaker" and it just stands as a great Title Fight album.
