K. Leaving this group too. I was really enjoying my time away from all you assholes anyway. I really could care less to talk to any of you at all anymore. You're all so petty for no reason and I don't know how I didn't give up on interacting with you all a long time ago. Rant over. Bye.

Would just like to mention that this was because a certain someone got called out for bragging about not caring about his Fantasy Football team getting beat.

Soo, listened to all four TWY releases a number of times, and this is what I have to say, as a newer fan of TWY...

GSOI: Many people disregard this album. I kinda did too at first, but you have to look at it in a certain light to truly enjoy it. This is TWY's first album, full of hilarious lyrics, random keys/synths, and unnecessary breakdowns. This album doesn't really compare to the rest of the discog, but it's still good. As it has been said time and time again, the most "normal" songs on this album (Keystone and Keeping it Real) are probably the best, though I now enjoy "What if We [Swam]" and "Racing Trains". You have to see this album has done by a new band with kind of naive songwriting skills. To use the comparison, I'd compare this to Identity Crisis, the debut by Thrice (my favorite band): naive, kinda sketchy, doesn't hold up to the rest of the discography as well, but has some really good songs and moments if you can really dive in and enjoy it.

Won't Be Pathetic Forever: HUGE departure from GSOI. This EP is sounding more and more like TWY we now know and love. Not much misplace synths, some good sing-a-long parts, and a lot more straightforward pop-punk. Still has a bit of the humor from GSOI (just the title of Solo & Chewy, for example). Good stuff here, but it's only 4 songs, which kind of sucks.

The Upsides: seriously getting into the current era and where it gets better (best). This is still rather straightforward pop-punk (with the exception of Hey Thanks and a few of the bonus tracks). In my opinion, this album is almost as good as Suburbia, but yeah. Absolutely great album. I can see this album bringing basically anybody out of depression, especially with the recurring motif of "I'm not sad anymore". The fact that Soupy wrote these songs after a rough breakup seriously increases the lyrical value, imo. And Melrose Diner is the best breakup song ever. Musically, synths are gone from this album. The rhytmn section here sounds ridiculously consistent and straightforward, but better than the earlier two releases. Production is better but not perfect, and Soupy's singing has increased.

Suburbia...: Here we go. This is my favorite TWY release. I absolutely love the lyrics in this album, and the comparisons to the Ginsberg poem is cool. As far as the instrumentation goes, the drums are absolutely amazing. As a drummer for 6 years, I can appreciate good drum skills, and Mike Kennedy is absolutely amazing here. Synths are back, but way more tasteful. Production sounds a lot cleaner, and Soupy's singing skills have seriously increased. This album already means alot to me, going through rough times recently. I love Suburbia, and seriously hope that TWY follows along this path, musically.

Yeah, this "review" was long and pointless, haha. Just wanted to share it.
