Andrew Mcmahon is 30yrs old... Why the fuck would anyone want him to go back and write a sappy emo SoCo album. I will always love SoCo for what it gave me at the time it was around but for Andrew to make one now would just feel wrong and forced. Plus Jack's just sounds like an evolution of SoCo anyway so what's the point of moving backwards? Anyway I'm excited to hear this new stuff, sadly I do agree that EIT was the best Jack's album but I still think he can top it, hopefully with this fresh start!
when I was in 19 and listening to North I am really pissed I didn't enjoy it as much as I should. I wish they released something like that NOW. Being 19 I just wanted tracks like leaving through the window, something fun, poppy.. Listening to North now I can relate to it so much better now I feel like it's their Pinkerton, or nfg's coming home for me.. Took some time for sure. I might have not been as patient back in the day but I am totally loving North 9 years later.
