Also renowned for their energetic live performances, the band has garnered a cult following since their inception.

    Nothing Gold Can Stay (1999)

    It's a sad day for pop punk when I'm the first response to a NFG thread.

    Just wanted to say that Not Without A Fight still holds up really well in my opinion. Not to say their older albums don't, but...

    I could never get into them, then again, I don't really like pop punk.

    Not Without A Fight seems like a more mature pop punk album. I don't know how else to describe it. If I heard their earlier stuff for the first time today, I don't think I'd be into it.
     
  6. Not Without a Fight is my favorite NFG album.

    Has anyone heard of any updates about Steve?

    Nope, nothing

    Anyway, I'd say Coming Home has aged the best out of all of their albums, at least for me

    I loved this band so much growing up. Saw them play recently and they still blew me away
     
  10. They're great live, one of my favorites.

    I think they're the only band that I loved as much as I did at one point and also couldn't care less about now. Not gonna act like they didn't play an incredibly important role in my life, but their last three albums were absolute garbage

    I can understand not enjoying Radiosurgery or Resurrection, but calling NWAF "absolute garbage" is just flat out wrong.

    Prior to Ressurection, NWAF was their worst album by a landslide

    You can't seriously believe NWAF is worse than Nothing Gold Can Stay...? Can you?

    At least NGCS was inspired and fresh. NWAF was just the sound of New Found Glory trying way too hard to write run of the mill pop punk songs to gain back the fans they alienated with Coming Home.

    To each their own. Couldn't disagree more.

    Yeah, I mean I know an opinion that strong about it isn't that popular. I'd say most people I've talked to about the album are pretty 50/50 on it, and every now and then I'll run into someone who loves it. At least we can agree it's better than Ressurection! Haha

    I didn't love or hate Resurrection (or Radiosurgery), but I would definitely agree those are the band's two worst albums. Resurrection is an album I've always felt would have benefited heavily from the addition of a second guitarist. The songs just don't feel near as big as they should.

    Same here. They were absolutely my favorite band throughout basically my whole teenage years and into early adulthood and were basically my gateway into any kind of alternative music, but I haven't made the choice to listen to anything of theirs in a couple years. Not sure if it's because I think they declined in quality or just because I've mostly moved onto other genres of music.

    Saw them live a couple times and they were absolutely fantastic and played about 25-30 songs each time, though.

    I really like a lot of Not Without a Fight, but can barely remember a single song off Radiosurgery and only listened to Resurrection once or twice. I also just don't really listen to them much anymore these days in general, though. I don't know if they've purely just become a nostalgia band and my tastes have moved away entirely from their sound, or my lack of interest in their recent releases has reverberated into a disinterest in their entire catalog.

    I was so disappointed in "Coming Home" when it was released, but as an adult pushing 30 it's grown to be one of my favorites.

    Hmm, now that I think about it, I sort of enjoyed that album.

    It's definitely a solid album. It makes such a great spring/summer album.

    NWAF never struck a chord with me, unfortunately.
