It's already AOTY for me just based on principle alone.

I mean, I fucking love Jeff Rosenstock with all my heart, but The Wonder Years are THE band for me. The first time I heard The Greatest Generation was a beautiful experience.

NCTH wasn't even bad, it was really good (Cardinals is one of the best songs in their whole discography). It just had the misfortune of following up TGG and Suburbia.

Not too bad of a track, but not really my cup of tea anymore. I really dug Suburbia when I was into pop-punk a half a dozen years ago.

The song structure sounds super familiar to me, but I can't put my finger on it.

sempiturtle

I think you've pretty much got it spot on.

It's a little too formulaic for me. I'm a sucker for a thick bass tone, plucky guitars, and fast punk drums so the song triggers the part of my brain that like this kind of stuff.

As a unique form of artistic expression though it falls short in providing me with an experience I have yet to have though. Not that I expect pop-punk to really push any boundaries at this day and age. I think there will be a new generation of people who need this kind of stuff in their life.

I've still got old Thrice and Rufio to listen to when I want this experience.

Jeff Rosenstock knows how to throw random acoustic songs into the middle of his albums; TWY are not as good at it.

What's so special about this track? The lead guitar pitched from The Offspring(The Kids aren't alright). The gritty bass. Soupy opening the song with a whisper then unleashing to his scream singing. Didn't see that coming.
