I felt a sense of loathing only after reading the verbs in that first sentence.

New Again would be like a 6/10 album for me.

Everything Must Go = 8.8/10
Sink Into Me = 7.9/10
Carpathia = 7.8/10
Where My Mouth Is = 7.2/10
Swing = 6.7/10
Capital M-E = 5.9/10
Lonely, Lonely = 5.7/10
Summer, Man = 5.2/10
New Again = 4.8/10
Catholic Knees = 4.6/10
Cut Me Up Jenny = 2.3/10

RIYL: "feeling new again just one album too early".

Sorry, one of my biggest pet peeves. This review was well thought out, but it was hard to read at some points. Also, I don't think one can "take a little retrospective".

I agree with everything you said (except for the best/worst tracks), i probably would like it better if another producer (Valentine ?) did it. I also think that it doesn't flow at all well.

Everything Must Go is fantastic and the only redeeming factor of this album. I'd say it's easily a top 10 TBS song, probably 6th or 7th best for me.

I thought New Again was a very good album. I thought New Again was a great way to start the album. The beginning bass-line is cool in my opinion. It also had great clap along when they played it live on their "New Again Tour" in 2009. I wasn't a fan of Sink Into Me. I just thought it was too poppy and repeated the same lies over and over. Lonely Lonely was good. Not great but it's listenable. Summer, Man I'd up there as one of my favorite songs on the album. Same with Swing, this is an underrated song. The lyrics are some of the best on the album. Where My Mouth Is is my least favorite song on the album. I just think his vocals sound horrible in it especially live. Cut Me Up Jenny was good song but the recording of it sounds kind of crappy. Catholic Knees was just alright. Capital M-E was good. Same opinion as with lonely, lonely. I love Carpathia. This song was one of the first released from the album and I was in love ever since. Everything Must Go is the strongest song on the album. I'm glad they still play it live. The lyrics are outstanding.

Overall I would give New Again a 6.5/10

Also the ITunes bonus track. Didnt See That Coming is great. Should have been on the actual Cd
