    Can't wait for this. They have a great track record.
     
  3. Some of those track names make me worried, and the album artwork is certainly strange, but it could be good. "Dirty Laundry" is a great track.

    Concerned they'll push too hard for radio play a la Dirty Work again?

    Tegan and Sara ft? Out of left field for sure, but pretty damn cool.

    Regardless of how dull I found that first single, I will check this out as I at least admire them for trying something new. Felt like they have been stagnating for a while now.

    Things have changed.

    The only concerning song title is "Nice2KnoU," which I will likely just name to "Nice To Know You"

    I definitely thought they reignited a creative spark after Dirty Work, which was definitely stagnant in every sense of the word, but I kind of agree in the sense that they needed to shake things up this time. They'd just about perfected their brand of pop rock imo.

    Composer, but never composed.

    I've found myself appreciating that record way more in the last year or so, perhaps more than Future Hearts honestly. Guts, Heroes and Do You Want Me (Dead) are among their best work I think.

    On the top of this record, I'm not in love with the title or the fact that it's 10 tracks but All Time Low have always been an important band to me so I'm excited regardless.

    Horrible artwork, horrible tracklisting, but optimistic the record will be good

    I'll listen to it as I've been a fan of the band since So Wrong, It's Right. I'm just hoping they don't pull another "dirty work" on us and try to write songs solely for radio play. Dirty Laundry has been growing on me, but the song titles and the fact they signed to FBR has me worried. I'll remain cautiously optimistic that this album sounds more like Don't Panic or Nothing Personal and less like Dirty Work and Future Hearts.

    That artwork screams "we just signed to FBR"

    I am completely down for that collab. T&S has been one of my favourite bands for a long time, so excited to hear what comes of this.

    I don't really understand your last sentence, as the albums you're comparing to each other don't really sound alike at all, i.e. I think FH is much closer to NP than DW. Unless you just mean you want them to stick to pop-punkish songs rather than incorporating other sounds and influences, in which case I understand but completely disagree.

    Oh, I certainly agree that there are great songs on DW – the ones you listed plus That Girl and A Daydream Away are all above average Dirty Work songs imo. That said, I still find it to be easily the least consistently good album in their catalog, due to production that doesn't suit them and a larger selection of filler type songs than any of their other records.

    I'm not saying NP and DW sound similar. I'm just wanting it to sound more like NP or DW. I want it to sound more like DW in an alternative pop punkish sound, or like NP which was poppy but also had a slight pop punkish style to it.

    I see now, I shouldn't have inferred what I did. Personally, I thought FH was a great mix of shades of their pop-punk style and a new, poppier style with more interesting production, so I'd be happy with an evolution of that sound.

    Yeah I can agree with that tbf. Don't Panic probably takes the consistency crown.

    Only ten songs.. Hopefully no filler! Can't wait for this.

    Excited for the album but I hate that artwork.

    Apparently they experimented with a bunch of vintage synths and said they were influenced by Prince, Bowie, George Michael, and Stranger Things. Blake Harnage (Versa, PVRIS) co-produced it as well. This will have a lot of potential.
