this is a huge step down from the sleeper classic that is Listen and Forgive. nevertheless, there is still some brilliance left from their previous incarnation amidst the new clunky direction. I just wish those moments weren't so few and far between this time.

Not as good as i had hoped but still ok. The last track "Lake Q" is amazing though

Few words are necessary to convey my disappointment with Young New England. I'm not really sure what Transit was intending to accomplish with this album. Also, the title track is seriously one of my most disliked songs of the year/ever.

What happened with the production?? The music's not that bad (but nowhere near L&F); but seriously, this is too good of a band to be ruined by awful production.
|3.5 great||CakeWithCream | April 3rd 13|
For every 2 good songs, there's an equally bad one

From the album's first single, "Nothing Lasts Forever", it doesn't grab the sense that this album will be as groundbreaking and memorable as Listen & Forgive and sadly that's what drifts it apart from it's predecessor. But as unfair it is to compare albums, when obviously Transit wants to shift tones by making this experience more intimate and down-to-earth. In the process, the album is less enjoyable and mellow. Young New England definitely puts listeners in the city of Boston, but only a tiny glimpse.

Really disappointed, very seldom do i find a pop punk band i enjoy, and this is a stale emotionless departure from their previous albums

If all the songs were as great as the title track this could have been pretty special. Lake rQ and Nothing Lasts Forever are pretty cool, though.

Not as strong as Listen and Forgive, but is still a solid record, although softer than their previous, still many great traits to a very nice band starting to find their sound.

Comment right after album was leaked (Rating then: 4.5) - So far I don't think this is quite as good as Listen & Forgive. I mean that album was absolutely classic. I'm definitely open for a change of thought as I listen to this album more and more though. Regardless, this is an amazing album and Transit is one of my favorite bands. Everyone should check it out. 4/8/13 - I can't stop listening to this album. I think a lot of people don't understand where they wanted to go with this album. I now understand. It's always a good thing for a band to take risks rather than put out the same material and I respect what they've done so much. I'm taking a risk by saying this, but the instrumentation on this album is better than L&F. I honestly don't have too much of a problem with Joe's vocals either. I got used it the more I listened to this and the alternate version of Skipping Stone. Yeah, I was leery at first. Many people listening, rating, and reviewing this album haven't really put the album past a couple plays. That just doesn't do it justice. If you've never seen these guys live, it puts them in a different league too. Everyone in the crowd knows the lyrics and it's just a powerful show to be at. Anyways I'm getting sidetracked, but with my opinion I think this is very close to being on the level of L&F. Also, I think in several of these songs Joe's voice reflects the vocalist of Taking Back Sunday and even Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. So this isn't necessarily a turn in the wrong direction, but tell me if I'm wrong. I love discussing this.

Joe needs to do something about his voice. His vocals are shit on this record.
|4.5 superb||icaughtfire2291 | March 30th 13|
