I've only read the first paragraph, and I completely disagree with you saying they have been "desperately" been trying to re-create their sound...

Okay I just read the rest, pretty good review I would rate it in the 80's personally. Shame for not mentioning "Swing" and "Summer, Man" those are awesome tracks right there.

Thank you. I don't love it, but I like it a lot more than AP does.

I'm with you man! I think the band hasn't been trying to recreate the magic but however been trying to escape it. I thought both WYWB & LN were alright with a lot of good tracks but an alright amount of lackluster songs.

but new again? Awesome, fun, and new is ways I'd describe the album. I love every song on the album minus "where my mouth is" and after listening to "sink into me" I feel that its just annoying how repetitive the song is. I don't by any means think this album is AMAZING, but I think its fresh and fun. Is there a lot of flaws? Of course! I wish there was more experimental stuff since fazzi is bursting at the seams with creativity! Speaking of which, comes my biggest complaint:

MORE


FAZZI


PLEASE!


I hope that new again sells well and tbs's next outing lets fazzi take more center stage.


Sidenote: I like how this site is trashing the album and people who love generic ass bands like all time low are saying this album is worse than music by... oh say... 30 seconds to mars. This album is getting sterling reviews from everywhere BUT here so tbs must be doing something right!

Fred is overrated, IMO.

And I love how the people who praise TAYF as the best TBS album go on to treat Fred as a God. Newsflash: He wasn't even a member of TBS when TAYF was release. John Nolan should get much more praise than he does.

Wow,
am I the only one who actually favours Cut Me Up Jenny & especially "Where My Mouth Is"?
Just wondering if anyone else enjoys these tracks also?

I see more John praise then I see Fred praise.

I do enjoy Fred more though.
Nicest guy I've ever met,
and just find him to be more enjoyable as a musician.

But, many people will come to disagree with me.

Not sure if you can put Where You Want To Be in the same category as Louder Now as far as mediocrity goes. I thought WYWTB trounced Louder Now in terms of listenability and quality. And I could never give the lyrics a 9/10

Besides that, I agree with mostly everything. Nice review.
