Back when the family was known as End Of A Year, they were still budding as a group, but they were still able to put out some quality material that would hint at the greatness that would later come, as their debut record Disappear Here showed so well. Sincerely is more post-hardcore in the vein of that album. From a songwriting standpoint very little changes here, but the production is cleaned up somewhat from the debut. This, unfortunately, is a bit of a vice, given that the sloppy production job of the debut gave that album a very charming and very punk feel to it. Not that this album doesn't have that, but certainly not as much as before. There aren't any bad tracks, and they're all pretty solid, but there's not a whole lot on here that wasn't done better on the album preceding it. That said, at the end of the day, it's a Self Defense Family album, which means if you're a fan of well-written and emotional post-hardcore, you should definitely try to hear it.
