No Closer to Heaven (Episode 97)

This week's a special episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. We offer to you two topics: A discussion about Thomas's decision to retire from the website and a lengthy discussion about The Wonder Years' new album No Closer to Heaven. Not only was it a marathon podcasting session, but I think the result was one of our best episodes. We tried to really get into the details of looking at the reactions to an album from a die-hard Wonder Years' fan and someone who is pretty indifferent to the band's catalog. Someone that thinks the band is elevating themselves to rarified air in the music scene and pop-punk, and someone that's not convinced they're in that conversation yet. It's like the Odd Couple podcast. I'm sure you'll be screaming at your speakers at me in no time ... so, please, check it out and let us know what you think. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

    • Friend of the program Sara Scoggins discovered that pre-album-release-date streaming activity (on Apple Music, Spotify, etc) does NOT help your first week album sales count.
    • Some people listened to Born To Run and didn't like it. LOL!
