I remember sitting with like 20 friends in the 8th grade crowded around the computer watching the video for "Great Romances of the 20th Century" in awe of how cool that band was.

I grew up with Where You Want to Be, not this album. I didn't start listening to this one until 2009 but couldn't stop listening to it once I did. It just hooked me in and the raw energy of a lot of the songs keeps you wanting more and blasting them in the car. My actual favorite song by TBS is The Ballad of Sal Villanueva, which wasn't on the original release but that song pretty much sums up the entire album. My favorite album from TBS is Where You Want to Be however.
I like that song but I think they could of improved the quality. It is great but sounds very distorted (have listened to it on both cd and vinyl and heard the same issue)

The back and forth vocals of Adam and John are why i still go to this album. Such a solid album from start to finish.

Never really bothered me that they couldn't live up to this album...I'm just glad we have it.

Fucking thank you. Exactly how I feel.

I bet. It is probably the only album by TBS I know every song so it would be great to see them all live in order.

I cant say that about every band (say anything), but TBS I'm cool with. I only have TAYF on my iPod now. My cousin was close with Eddie and he has some funny stories about Adam when they were all younger.

My brother got me this and Where You Want To Be at the same time right when WYWTB came out. Needess to say, I fell in love with both and TBS held a spot in my top 5 favorite bands ever since. This album, and even the next one, is a masterpiece front to back. I always have good memories of this album. I blast it in my car on a regular basis

I was 11 when this came out, so obviously I didn't get into it till much later, probably never heard it till I was like 16 actually, after I had already listened to Green Day, Yellowcard, New Found Glory, etc, for a long time. I still like Where You Want To Be and Louder Now but TAYF is the uncontested career album for TBS, the rawness and energy make it relevant at all times. I don't listen to it too often, but when I do it's on binges and it's usually when I'm feeling lonely.

Probably my favorite album of all time, I wouldn't change a single thing about any song on it. The dueling vocals are what really grabbed my attention.

I've actually been seeing more and more people say as of late that WYWTB is their favorite/best TBS record

Good short write-up via Original Post by Thomas. I still remember hear Ghost Man on Third for the first time, still stuck with me as number 1. Curious what albums early fans of this album are listening to now. I know I've changed, I highly doubt they are still listening to the same artist's albums. If you are, kudos to you, but for new albums that strike me as much as this album did back in school is currently Pianos Become the Teeth. As well as the latest phoenix wolfgang album first listening reminded me of the first listen of TAYF - instantly good music at first taste.

Neat. 10 years. Seems like more.
