It hasn't been an easy journey for pop trio The Cab, a band that originally began as a quintet before signing to Fueled By Ramen in mid-2007. Their debut album, Whisper War, saw moderate success when it was touted to be the next big thing in the industry. However, as years passed, member departures further crippled the public's view on the group. With the lack of new material to show due to various label disputes, some wondered if a second album would even see the light of day.

Was not expecting this to get that positive of a review. Guess I'll be checking it out.

Their songs have never really stuck in my mind, but, with such a glowing review, I think I have to check this out. If I didn't like their old stuff, will I like this?

If you like pop in general, you should definitely like this.

Haha no. The album art is coming out this week I think so I needed something to be a placeholder and turns out what I picked is really ugly. Trying to find something different.

I am so excited to hear this album. Amazing review. Just purchased the single. I am so glad they're doing it without a label.

I didn't know Crawford recorded with them for this. For as long as people have been waiting for this album, I hoped it would be decent at least.

It shouldn't matter what score it gets; he thinks it's a great pop album(especially with the mainstream pop world in mind). I'm definitely excited after listening to "Bad" and can't wait to see what the other tracks sound like.
