Agreed. The way I see it, Almost Here is their most popular record for some very good reasons. Solid album.

Santi is the dark horse of their discography. It's in your face and the different melodies...

If I was their A&R guy (dream job right there) I would place the singles like so:

"Uma Thurman" Feb/March into early April
Reason: People don't yet want a huge poppy summer song, but they also want...

Oh this will be non-stop airplay. No cussing (seriously thought he wouldn't say "trash" in his first verses) and it features Paul McCartney with pop stars, what's not to love?

I've been listening to the FOB "Welcome to the New Administration" Mixtape from 2008 recently. 100% full hip hop influences there but it worked quite well. Nothing surprising here, even though Wiz is...

Who in their right mind would hold ill will against him for this decision. I'd want a month off after something this tragic happens. You'll be in my prayers buddy.

Same here. The country albums were ok, but blah compared to the excellent Battle Studies.

I should have said initially when I listen to a new album. I like to just go through a rundown of the songs I like and the songs I don't. Figure out what the band was trying to accomplish with this...

There's three things that can happen when I listen to a band's new record:

1. The album isn't great but there's a few strong songs here and there. (see: almost every album that comes out these...

Up All Night was fantastic. He's been getting introspective as of late. Well, for Owl City anyway.

For their next album, U2 should make it $100 a pop. That'll teach'em!!

I keep thinking this thought as well. The drums aren't bad on this song, but LP's absence is very much noticeable. Hence the electronics to sort of take your mind off of that fact. This song suffers...

I give you the 2004 version of "Wasted Years" from the Friday the 13th Live Album (which is great btw):

I'm curious what everyone thought of the "re-recording" of "Wasted Years" on Overexposed. That to me proved they weren't interested in crafting well sounding songs. I mean the blue print for that...

They've all acknowledged that they know the fans would appreciate anything.....literally ANYTHING in the realm of Songs About Jane. I don't want a sequel to that record, really I don't. But playing...

Ehhhh....this is rather weak both musically and lyrically. Sure the last little bit of the song gives off some hope of actual drums and energy but yup, the fade isn't warranted correctly here. And...

I'm addicted to Alt Nation on XM Radio but now a days I'll stream it via their mobile app. You can control the type of songs you hear and the style you're into. To me that's a fantastic way to...

That's totally fare of him to go forth and push towards a more creative project. I will agree that Southern Air lost some of the drumming sounds that we had all grown accustomed to, but I still will...

I'm excited but with no LP, the chances of this going down as a classic Yellowcard album are slim for me. I think I'm very behind when I ask this: Why did LP leave again? I know he's doing his own...

Their new album is ok but brand new eyes will probably forever by my favorite album by them. The anger, the aggression, the raw emotion. It's the tits!
