@Nash, that's a pretty bold statement. I like it so far but haven't heard anything that tops "Be The Young" or "Life of Leaving Home" from their last album.

Of course not. I'm just saying that neither bands' last efforts were amazing. Yellowcard needs to write new songs and TWY need to be more exciting.

So far, 2nd track rules, seems like a lesser For You and Your Denial, maybe better. 1st track kinda blows. 3rd track is okay, 4th track kinda blows.

I don't think it is a bold statement. I like it as much as their last album. But I prefer their newer stuff its more consistently in the vein that I enjoy from them

Yes, it's no secret I hate the wonder years so yes I would suffer through them. Although I do think TWY get better as they age. I just hated their early stuff. Sorry Ty I hope this hasnt stifled the fire in your heart for my body

Also, Sowing I couldn't agree more that this sounds like Paper Walls although I think the latter half of this album is strong than PW

Is enjoyable, yellowcard has made before some catchy and consistent track. But some of their tracks didn't caught my attention. Anyways , I'm going to give a chance to their next LP.

2nd track and Rivertown Blues both rule. Everything else is just Yellowcard being Yellowcard playing Yellowcard songs.

3/5 as of now.

This is easily a 3.5/4

"Yellowcard being yellowcard? Imagine that.

Not that I don't like them being Yellowcard, this is just too typical of them. They need a change of sound.

"Wait, you lowered the score because the songs sound like something you'd expect from them?"

It was probably wasn't gonna end up a 3.5 to begin with. I imagined it would be as good as When You're Through Thinking (which was a 3.5), and it isn't. 3/5

That's the issue with every band. They don't change and people shit on them for not progressing. They do change and if people don't think it's for the better it's like WTF

Rare birds change for the good and they end up being the classics on sputnik. (Brand New, Thrice, etc.)

solid pop punk. i can see the progression argument. only bcuz I would've like this more in 2000 when I was younger, but that's not to say it's their fault for not "growing/progressing" their sound. It could've been that they changed it up and the result would've sucked hard.

you'd suffer through the band that wrote one of the best punk-pop albums in recent memory? you martyr you.

anyway gonna bump anchor&braille out of my listening queue for a bit to stream all this.
