It's interesting the way Romy and Oliver get credited on these songs. Oliver gets his full name, while Romy gets just her first name. Granted, her full name is quite long, but removing it almost...

I always thought Valkyrie Missile was pretty much the pinnacle of the thing Tom was going for on Whisper (dat outro!), and then almost everything else was those elements just sort of bent into...

Good Times actually really feels like it wants to be the centerpiece to me. I do generally agree with the idea that the sequencing is out of whack though. Sleep Sound is totally out of place at track...

Go ahead and step off your high horse. It's not that the song is edgy; it's that it's clearly Maroon 5 trying to be edgy. If Blood Red Shoes or Sleigh Bells or someone like that released a song with...

This is the best Shiny Toy Guns video I've seen in a while.

New version of Forever kind of bugs me. That song was perfect, so the changes, as small as they are, rub me wrong now. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I would have been totally happy just getting...

Eh. Feels pretty formless. Not feeling it.

Do not get the vitriol going on here. I've never been a huge fan of Paramore, but this is another pretty good, punky pop song in their ever-expanding library of pretty good, punky pop songs. And the...

Goodbye, Goodbye has grown on me immensely. I loved the melody from the beginning, but the content of the song came across kind of generic and forgettable for me the first time I heard it. But I've...

Goodbye, Goodbye and Love They Say are the only songs that give any validation to the criticism that the Quins are settling for generic pop music on this album, on first listen. Everything they had...

Yeah, this.

I think the album title is good—short and sweet, yet representative of a lot of their lyrical content (love and relationships and the tension and intensity that they can be wrapped up...

Bands aren't allowed to change their sound, you guys.

If they do, they stop having artistic integrity.

Also, they're not allowed to write songs with really catchy, radio-friendly choruses.

Because...

This is exactly the direction in which I was hoping they would go. Very 80's, very catchy, very cool. I hope this song dominates.

Great performance, as always.

Although I seriously want to steal that guitar from Ed every time I see him with it just so I don't have to watch him not even pretend to play it. We all know he's just...

Disagree. "Try" takes the cake. Starts off neat and sort of otherworldly, then immediately gets boring and stays that way.

"Missing" and "Tides" at least have something propelling them. "Tides,"...

fuck fuck fuck fuck

I want to listen so badly, but that's going to make waiting until 2013 for the rest of it absolutely impossible. Reading enthusiastic responses is good though.

With the new haircut and that polka-dot shirt (both adorable), Tegan really is a deadringer for Sara in that video. I wonder if Sara's secretly a little upset that Tegan has kinda started biting her...

Sunset is fantastic. Angels was always a winner; still probably one of the best songs this band has put out so far. Chained is finally starting to click with me. Also, none of Oliver's vocals really...

When talking about one hit wonders, the "top 40 crowd" is legitimately the only demo that matters.

Judging by that comment, I'm going to assume you haven't heard a T&S song since Walking With A Ghost.

Keep walkin', hataz.
