    OK while people are saying this isnt an emo album, its still what they are classified as. Taking Back Sunday is still one of those bands where if you dont listen to emo music, you arent going to like them. I am one of those people. To me all they and every other emo band just like them are just another group of whiny people who hate life.

    Louder Now, just really doesn't work. After finally breaking into the mainstream, Taking Back Sunday begin to embody parts of Indie Rock into a sound which is not their own. Over-production is clearly the main culprit here- 'Spin' remains the only reasonable track on offer.

  1. Even if Louder Now brings the mosh-pit fun ready to be embraced by new and old fans alike, an attempt to push themselves further would be more than welcomed.

    Taking Back Sunday should be commended, not for just choosing not to rehash their older work, but for truly trying to branch out artistically--and succeeding most of the time. [May 2006, p.155]

    Without a target for their ire, TBS opt for sheer emo relentlessness. [May 2006, p.111]
