4.7 superbJohn weathered old reviewer Hanson STAFF | January 13th 14

Tone down the Bruce Springsteen influence, turn up the the other 80s rock/punk influences to the max. Laura Jane has brought back the fire and passion of early Against Me! while simultaneously creating the most focused record she's ever written, culminating in a simple triumph of the human spirit

I was done with Against Me! when they were one of Marissa Cooper's favorite bands on the OC.



If anyone wants to talk about the OC tho, my shoutbox is always open.

5.0 classicTriangularDuck | January 18th 14

Bands tend to make their best music when they've got something to prove. For all too many bands this is their first album, trying to cement themselves as important among the hordes of other bands. Rare for an established band, Against Me! have two tries at the plate here, with them being off their major label and Laura going public with the gender dysphoria she faced for years. And damnit, they step up to the plate and deliver their best album yet. The fire and venom in tracks like Drinking With the Jocks and Black Me Out is undeniable. These are the songs she's kept pent up for years, only offering glimmers in earlier songs like The Ocean. Years of rage, confusion, fear, pain, and hope put to disk, and one of the most important albums to release in years.

Does Laura sound like Tarja Turunen now? Does the transformation from man to woman bestow this unique individual the high octave pipes of the goddess of metal? Because if not, -666/10

4.0 excellentBrendan M. | July 5th 14

Against Me! was one of those last sparks in punk rock music, at least to the public eye. Unfortunately, they had been losing their spark slowly, as release seemed to be getting less and less energetic. But, after a dramatic turn of events leading up to this, Transgender Dysphoria Blues is a renewed passion for anthemic punk music. Laura is singing with such passion, while creating the anthemic sound they were known for, but with the most strength they've had in quite a while. The catchiness is here, the raw power is here, and the fun times are here. 3.8/5

3.0 goodBryan Diem | June 6th 14

Completely lacking any of the eloquence needed to be taken seriously, but it's kinda fun and catchy.

4.5 superbHeavyMetalSnail | April 13th 14

This is quite possibly Against Me's best material and will possibly be remembered as a landmark punk album. Against Me! takes tight instrumentation and catchy melodies and blends them with some fantastic lyrics. The lyrics are what make the album stand head and shoulders above competition. In spite of the dark subject matter, Laura Jean Grace approaches the themes with a frank and blunt tone that's instantly relateable without being whiny or self aggrandizing. There is not a bad track to be found. Transgender Dysphoria Blues is one of the best of the year so far.

4.0 excellentbutchinette, herself | February 15th 14

Extremely beautiful lead guitar, really passionate voice, words of authentic emotions. This is a solid album! Favorite songs: Unconditional Love, Paralytic State, but espacially Obama Bin Laden... and Black Me Out.

Bump

4.0 excellentMikkel | January 28th 14

(At least a 4). Amazing album and lyrics; Laura Jane Grace sounds so frustrated at times, but only just the right (and morally accurate) amount. Several listens in, and I imagine this will keep growing. AOTY so far.

This is way better than White Crosses and ridiculously catchy.

Bump

4.5 superbJosh Fountain CONTRIBUTOR | January 13th 14

Against Me! has created their most cohesive album, with fantastic lyrics stemming from Laura's much publicized gender reassignment surgery, and the best instrumentation we have quite possibly ever heard from the band.
