Good read, but the comments on the next album being in a "similar vein" aren't exactly encouraging.

Great to hear that Mmhmm is probably being repressed on vinyl.
I liked the interview a lot but I gave an audible "UGH" when I read that. That's so disappointing. I have no problem with a band evolving and changing their style up but CL is such an extreme regression.

edit: super stoked on that tour with MCS though.

I totally get what you mean, though Im not sure Id call it a regression. I recall an interview with Jim Atkins after Bleed American was released about the process and whatever, and he said it would be easy for me to write another emo record, I chose to write poppier stuff because it was a challenge. Sorta like any job, even if you like the way the janitor cleans the toilet, sometimes he just wants to use a new toilet bowl cleaner.

I understand your point but in my opinion this album is a significant drop in quality. Not because it's a pop album, because of the lyrics.
