Review Summary: To hell with the spins I'm staying in, there's no good reason why I should leave your bed tomorrow
Modern Baseball have always been inconsistent songwriters. The majority of tunes on the band's debut album Sports
worked, but the occasional track faltered. This wasn't much of an issue as most of the songs on Sports
barely crossed the two minute mark, leaving little room for disappointment when a track didn't work quite as well as the others. Modern Baseball's sophomore effort You're Gonna Miss it All
is no different in this regard. The band still skillfully blasts through two minute emo tinged, indie-folk anthems of snarky white underclassman parties and relationships conveyed through jangly guitar chords and nasally vocals. The biggest difference here is the improved production, more focused songwriting, and more commercial sound. Unfortunately, this tightening of sorts diminished some of the immature charm the band had on their debut album. Thankfully though, You're Gonna Miss it All
is catchy enough and charming enough to draw in a slew of new fans, and keep existing fans satisfied.
