    As much as I dig some of the newer stuff, does anyone else miss old HelloGoodbye? Like, the super synth pop punk nonsense version? I do a lot, haha.

    haha, i'm in that camp. glad to see they're doing well and releasing new music, but I miss the "shimmy shimmy quarter turn" days.

    I do only because they have been my favorite band since the first EP. But I would still prefer the stuff they’re making now, it’s great to see the progression.
     
  9. No band made a bigger jump from unlistenable to incredible than this band with WIKY.

    Idk if I miss it, but I do know that I still love it. Hellogoodbye has always been one of, if not, the best at what sound they decide to pull off. That EP and debut Album has some really interesting/ creative choices and are extremely catchy. I still play them as much as I do WIKY? And EID.

    I do miss WIKY? Sound and think there were even some songs on there that sounded like a blend of their old sound mixed with new (You Sleep Alone).

    Anywho, if anything, I’m bummed that we didn’t/wish we could’ve gotten one last record (08ish I would’ve assumed) where they could’ve explored their old sound a bit more.

    I was definitely expecting a bottle of cologne to pop up at the end of that video.

    If anything I’ll say I miss their shows more from the EP Zander first LP days. The music now is significantly better though

    I actually really enjoyed their debut, but with that said i think WIKY is easily their best and most timeless album, and my personal favorite. I think this album could give it a real run for it’s money and I personally wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I love old Hellogoodbye, I’m thankful that I can listen to it whenever I want, and I am thrilled with this new music.

    It’s been awesome watching Forrest grow throughout his career. I still think the EP is still super fun. I listen to Z!A!V!D! about as much as EID, which is pretty much never. But WIKY is awesome. Just unimpeachably great in every way.

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. It's better. Now I'm starting to struggle with the fact that I'm going to a different show the night they're in Portland.

    I liked “Mysterious You” a lot. This ain’t bad either.

    YES. I tell my wife that WIKY is one of the greatest albums ever. She agrees but I tell her anyway, constantly.

    It really is. WIKY is outstanding.

    I agree. I would also put Panic At The Disco's Pretty Odd into the same bucket. Couldn't get into the early stuff but Pretty Odd was a great jump forward.
