his voice is going to take some time to get used to, but the music itself is great !

Still can't believe what happened to his vocals. Serious decline since Running Water.

I just thought it was ok, but I'll give it a few more listens. The singer's voice just isn't doing it for me

Not really comparable to the Wonder Years... #justsayinnn

I back the TWY comparison, especially because no other pop-punk band would atract as many curious listeners in ap.net as them, and that's what's most important. it's for a noble cause!

Exactly my thoughts. Still, the new record is sounding dece.

this album is so good! half hearted hero continues to kill it every time by just getting better with every release. pre-ordered the 12" on purple. can't wait to get it in the mail / go to the release show.

Pretty good stuff, I'll have to listen a couple more times to get the full effect

TyBreaker 01/02/13 04:07 PM

Vessel is still really heavy hitting haha I love this album

Listened to this, it didn't really catch my attention--as a big fan of the wonder years. Thinking about listening to Modern Baseball's record, are these two comparable?

Musically it sounds fantastic but the vocals aren't doing it for me. It sounds like the singer is hurt or trying to hard to force the "gruff" in his vocals.

His voice is a bit different than before but it grows on you with a few listens. I'd rather scratchy and gruff than nasally and whiny.
