    Yeah this is true. They had to clarify that it absolutely wasn’t a joke

    Ok, think i can officially rank now. The first three were hard firstly, because WYWTB was my first album and first favorite and secondly, while i think LN is the better album, i think if i had TAYF on my mp3 still, I'd listen to it more and it'd be my favorite. Well anyway, here goes!

    Louder Now
    Tell All Your Friends
    Where You Want To Be
    Happiness Is
    Tidal Wave

    New Again and Self Titled

    Taking Back Sunday

    I think at this point, I find my top three the ones I return to the most because that’s when the band had the most skilled musicians in their lineup. Rubano paired with Fred or Fazzi is never a boring listen for me.

    No this is the thread for Taking Back Sunday. ‘Alopecia’ is a pretty good album, though.

    Tell All Your Friends is my least favorite and I stand by that hot take.

    I mean, I think for a lot of people their love for it is based on nostalgia and memories of a particular time in their lives and likely very specific relationships and not as much on song writing and things like that.

    I could go on endlessly about how much I enjoy New Again. Creatively, I think it’s their best record and much of the production is killer.

    Of course the shift in lyrical style and delivery from that of their earlier career is a bit jarring, and Fazzi’s voice was far too buried, but I appreciate the risks the band took on that record, and believe they had a firm grasp on how to execute their ideas, even though some of those ideas were clearly stronger than others, but it’s a fascinating listen all the same.

    The album is so boring to me. It’s so unengaging.
     
  18. Orla

    right on!

    Okay.

    Carpathia and Where My Mouth Is are some of the best songs this band has written

    There’s not a single moment that moves me on the whole album.

    i see we're talking about whether new again is good... again

    (imo it's great and it's still one of their worst records, i like and listen to it more than the s/t)

    Heh that's crazy to me. I understand a good majority of the songs not doing anything for fans of TBS's past albums, but to not even like a single song on there is weird. Swing could easily have been on Louder Now

    Every few years I try again and am just as bored and unmoved as the first time.
