    Wrecked 'em? Damn near killed 'em!

    Dude is ridiculously talented. I saw him do a Rare Futures show in Philly 2.5 years ago, and it was awesome. I wish he was more well known. Oddly enough, The Color Fred played the same show.

    The only vocals of his I recall being clear are

    ONE HUNDRES AND FIFTY DEGREES IN THE SHADE

    And

    He’s the last voice you hear in Carpathia

    That's crazy. I always thought that was Adam.

    He also sings the HOOOOW LOOOONGs and a few quick SWINGs in “Swing”! And quite a bit in “Catholic Knees” that I guess I forgot about until just now.

    Always makes me happy to see people appreciate New Again and more importantly- Matt Fazzi. I remember this site hardcore hating on the record when it came out but I immediately loved it and while it had a few missteps- it’s easily one of the better records.

    It’s a shame David Kahne talked the band into cutting out most of Fazzi’s vocals for the record. I think he would have paired beautifully with Adam if given the proper spotlight. It’s also a shame they cut “Winter Passing” from NA as it’s one of my favorite songs of theirs ever.

    Fazzi singing One Eighty By Summer on the live from Orensanz record is literally everything. Dude sounds better than Fred or John singing it- just being honest ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Fazzi might not have the grit "needed" to sing Fred and some of John's songs but he's got such a smooth voice that he makes up for it.

    Nah, I realized I made in incorrect assumption that you were saying that they’ve gotten better since this performance. I now realize you meant this is better than their older performances, which I didn’t quite agree with.

    I know these recent performances are way better than when they were promoting S/T, the acoustic performances of Faith are horrendous

    They have definitely gotten a lot better. Specifically, the S/T era was pretty rough. The performance here of MDS is really good.

    I remember when it was previewed on those studio videos without us knowing it was actually from them (it was just an instrumental). I thought the verses sounded like random Youtube stock music.

    Can I measure your tree?

    I'm behind a bit but catching up, the "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" cover and "A Song for Dan" absolutely slap. "All Ready to Go" isn't quite as good but I fuck with the bridge

    “All Ready To Go” is a great song. I like it more than “A Song for Dan”, which drags a bit.

    Bullet with butterfly wings is a great cover.

    Honestly, I think both the songs are great. They're closer to Happiness Is than Tidal Wave. Tidal Wave had a classic kinda Tom Petty vibe, which I loved, and I don't think that appears here.

    I was really hoping for more Tidal Wave is the thing :D it's by far my favourite TDS. but these songs make me very hopeful

    I'm happy for more TBS goodness from either of the two albums. Happiness Is came out in my final year of having a big party house in college and there's some damn good nights attached to it. Tidal Wave was entering the job market and cutting back on the partying, but there's some equally great shit attached to it.

    If we even get another jam as good as You Can't Look Back, I will be completely satisfied. That song is amazing and if emo/punk/alternative wasn't such a niche these days, it would have been another MakeDamnSure, imo.

    I really do You Can't Look Back is one of the best songs the band has ever written.
