Simply put....yes

It's not the end of the world for me but it will be for a lot. Especially when you're starting to sound like Transit and modern day Saves the Day...both of which are horrendous.

It sucks that his voice is shot and that this is likely what Polar Bear Club will become. But that still doesn't mean they can't release some good material with cleaner vocals. For example, some of the The Redder The Better EP.

But having his voice shot also doesn't justify garbage like "Siouxsie Jeanne" and the majority of Death Chorus.
That is by far the worst track on the album. Upstate Mosquito is cheesy as fuck, also.

I literally haven't listened to anything other than this album since I got it last Wednesday.

Such an incredible album.

God yes.

I'll be positive and say that For Show is decent while WLWYCD is tolerable.

I'm interested in hearing Saw Blade just because I love b-sides. But I'm clearly expecting the worst.

I actually preferred his voice on the earlier stuff. It was raw, untouched and deeper than it is now. It was especially amazing for someone in their late teens to come out with.

Cool review, I love the album. Jimmy's voice sounds great both ways, but this new sound is refreshing to the ears.
I just meant that the vocals changed significantly and out of necessity (he said that singing like that was hurting his throat). I greatly prefer his party scene voice to any other.

Nice Review!

I like this album WAY more than previous efforts - who knew Jimmy could actually sing!? I am pleasantly surprised.

As someone coming in to this band and going through their back catalogue i like this album far more than the others. Nothing i'd listen to a ton, but i'm sure it could make for an enjoyable listen here and there. Nice work

I like this album but like someone stated above it's almost impossible to top CBGP.

It's definitely full of some good jams though. Huge Grower because I'm actually liking it more and more after each listen. Besides Souxie Jean which I can't see myself ever liking and I'm usually a sucker for those slow songs

You realize he has sang on previous records, right?

This record isn't bad at all, just much more generic. The vocals are what they are, but the songs just don't measure up to their old stuff. I'm sure it will grow on me and average polar bear club is better than no polar bear club

OMG Point is, with cleaner vocals, they have proven they can do a hell of a lot better than this. Which is more disappointing than his new shot voice.
Good to see I'm not crazy. Agree 100%
