i think these guys are emo, but only in a music sense. calling someone emo is really stupid, and if u call people emo, you have no clue wut ur talking about. i get called emo all the time. but ive never cut my wrists. and i dont spike my hair in the back. so if ur using it in a musical way, i see. if your not, you need to grow up.
but i love cute without the e =].
and i agree with everyone when they say hawthorne heights isnt emo. they're just bland.
no, these gusy are definately pop-punk
and icaughtfire is write about pretty mcuh everything except these guys being emo
Emo is such a fucked up genre, with all the shit it gets thrown in. There's actual good emo out there, and usually pop punk gets called emo. Example: Green Day and Sum 41 went emo with their last album.
yeah they did
good emo= Sunny Day Real Estate/ The Get Up Kids/ Hot Cross
You're insane if you don't think Greatest Romances stands out, it's the best track in the world in my opinion. The epic bridge where he sings "SO SHE SAYS, COME ON COME ON, LETS JUST GET THIS OVER WITH" is just amazing. That's a work of art you just skipped over.
^^agreed with everythign except it being epic
it seems to me that they sound like all the other packaged MTV bull-shit that comes out to entertain the masses
^^^thats so retarded i odnt even know where to start
How the hell did TBS get placed with emo as its secondary? Jesus H. Christ.
thats a travesty, one reason why i want to be a mod, so i can fix crap like that
This is when taking back sunday was less comercial.
And had John Nolan's musical influence.
I mean, in all honesty, a completely better band than Straylight Run and taking back sunday will ever be again.
This album really isn't that generic or " crappy emo, or poppunk " as I was reading from people's comments above.
Music with meaning,
A sound that is distinctly taking back sunday with their bickering back-and-forth dual vocals.
It really is a classic as far as this genre goes.
pretty average band with only one awesome song, 'cute without the e'
Decent review. Focus more on the album and if you use Track by Tracks focus more on the structure of the songs. Such as the Blue Channel; it is a great song of the record with two sentences explaining it.

possibly one of their greatest lines. love it. i never get tired of hearing it, never will. really catchy
lol I wrote this review ages ago dosen't seem so good anymore, still agree with the score though (4, I think)? The best, and possibly only good album, TBS have ever done.
