    Mystery is the secret ingredient Prestigious

    My favorite of the new songs but I don't love it as much as their older stuff. It doesn't feel completely right though, almost like a Senses Fail cover band or something. I don't know.

    Fuuuuuck me! This is SO good! It feels like old Senses Fail, but something is missing. I love it though, absolutely love it.

    I'm a long time fan of SF and have enjoyed every record in some capacity, but I have to say that there's something really forced and off-putting with the flow of Buddy's lyrics since going back to "pop-punk/emo" music. Sometimes he tries to stretch words for too long, and it sounds really bad :( Speak The Truth had this issue too.

    These songs are kinda bland. A lot of the guitar parts seem pretty generic and I think with Buddy writing everything, the full album will be the same. Garrett and Heath added a lot to this band.

    Also, the production on these songs kinda sucks.

    The second song released was cool but this and the first song sound very similar. As others have mentioned, these songs are pretty bland

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Enjoyed this way more than the other two tracks they've released from the new album.

    0/3 now. This is such regression and it’s a bummer to hear. I knew I wasn’t getting anything as heavy as Renacer (their best record by a landslide IMO) but I hoped this would at least have something cool instrumentally. Everything from guitars to drums sound so... generic and uninspired.

    Steve Jobs mixed with Steve Austin

    3 for 3 for me as well. And I had no problem with he last 2 records, but I'm happy to hear them go back to their roots.

    I’m totally with you. Also seems so strange to me to do Speak The Truth and then this record when they sound so similar.

    Don't really like the song much at all, but it's interesting they're back to the pop-punk thing.

    As much as I love this band, they’re in such a weird spot right now in their career. These songs are sounding like everything they’ve already done before. Like there is no new ground being broken for them like it was with Renacer. It’s basically a big step backwards.

    Remember their old pop punk music that was awesome? Yeah this is not that.

    I always liked the jersey adage though, people take that place for granted so much

    Lol these song titles are ridiculous

    @tgscraig Prestigious

    ITs not that ridiculous. See above. It’s a very prominent piece of New Jersey and they are... a New Jersey band

    I love this album a lot and my interview with Buddy (which will go live next week) touches a lot on how he approached writing this album

    Cool, that makes me feel better a bit. Looking forward to reading it, Buddy has always seemed like a good guy.

    Does the interview include him mentioning writing all the guitar parts for this album in 5 minutes?

    LOL

    Renacer does endless laps around this material. Everything from production, to the musicianship, to ESPECIALLY the lyrics- it’s just better. The lyrics on Renacer are so inspiring and thoughtful. I wish, if anything, the lyrics here could be just as great.

    Exactly. When I heard about the musical direction Buddy was taking, I was massively let down, but I figured maybe it could be cool in it’s own way.... it aint. Like.. it’s hard for me to even finish a song.

    I feel slightly bad for laughing but like... you’re not wrong for saying that lol

    Every once in a while I'll throw on Still Searching, and damn Buddy can write hooks. But where they at? These new ones got killer verses and letdown choruses. Kills me.
