Did "Good for Me" really get that much hate?? I think that album is great... I am being more optimistic about this YC album and I am hoping it is their best album yet, with the comments I've read about it so far. I think Tate said something in another thread along the lines of this being a direction they needed to go in but didnt know they needed to go in until they did it.. I kind of feel they needed to change things up a little bit or evolve the sound but still remain yellowcard. Just cant wait to hear a song already.
I LOVE Good for Me as well. I just remember everyone saying that they wished it was more like Ups and Downsizing and that they shouldn't have made such a "rock" album.
I have huge hopes for this YC album, too. I'm just worried that the stupid masses will complain that it doesn't sound exactly like OA or "Always Summer" and that YC will struggle to remain as relevant as they are now. It's the same thing that happens to every pop-punk band when they release something ambitious.

They all suffered this fate, the fans turn on the band as soon as they try something a little different. Every one of those band besides maybe All Time Low went into damage control and went right back to making the exact same types of songs that they made before these albums, rather than continuing to push the envelope.
I haven't heard any of Lift a Sail yet but I'm worried that same thing will happen.
