4.5 superbGreyShadow | April 10th 13

AOTY, these guys are the talent that we should all be worshiping

4.0 excellentMutantsnowstorm | January 20th 15

This Tom Delonge side project is really good

really though, album rules


1 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentShovelThrash | July 25th 13

Only on first listen really, but cant get enough of Twin Size Mattress - amazing!

4.0 excellentBen | September 8th 16

What initially comes across as an immature and clumsy basement pop-punk project matures with further listens into one of the most charming records of 2013. Go on, give it a second chance.

Bump

3.5 greatApollo63 | September 20th 15

Listened to the album again and not as pleased with it as I am with their self titled.

Bump

0.0 melonade | January 25th 15

so this is why you enjoy this band.

3.0 goodchriskrispy | May 22nd 14

Some songs don't work as well as they could. But the ones that do are so catchy and easy to relate to that you won't forget them until the day you die.

Bump

4.0 excellentBealTheSeal | August 13th 13

Good follow up to their self-titled. Not quite as good but still a very enjoyable album to listen to.

Bump

3.5 greatEarthmover | July 30th 13

Pretty great, first half of the album is far better than the latter half though.

2.5 averagezgollach | July 20th 13

If you're just discovering TFB through this album, I could see why you like it. I became a huge fine through their self-titled album, and was rather disappointed with this one after a few listens.rFirst off, upon first listen it sounds over produced. That is a damn shame, because their best feature is their raw, blunt sound.rSecond, some of the lyrics are god awful. Specifically, Santa Monica. "Sometimes I cry, when I get sad" Really? That's real deep guys. Additionally, the chorus "Emotional baby boy. Emotional man. I am emotional" I cannot believe someone actually wrote a song and used the statement "I am emotional" in it. The whole point of art and poetry is to avoid having to use the that phrase. Another poor song is Lone Star, which attempts to tell a story in a far too blunt, un-clever, uninteresting way.rNegatives aside, while it's not necessarily what I had hoped for, I think it is still a good step toward success for the band. There are gems on the record. 'Skeleton' is a fun song about nothing more than smoking weed. 'Backflip' is an upbeat song with clever "bring young" lyrics, and an classic Front Bottoms sound. Certain songs just give out the "We're trying hard to not try that hard" vibe. I'm excited to see what's next for these guys.

Bump

4.0 excellentfusrodamn | July 11th 13

I had high expectations for this album, and was not disappointed.

Bump

0.0 titlefightmeirl | July 1st 13

This is definitely a contender for AOTY. This needs more attention.

Bump

4.0 excellentyoKenny | May 22nd 13

Catchy, loud and full of energy, Talon of the Hawk is one of the best follow-ups this year even if it doesn't fall very far from the band's first album.

Bump

4.0 excellentGoingToBuffalo | May 21st 13

Album is fun as hell and the coke bottle vinyl is very very pretty. Their best work so far as far as I'm concerned.
