    It's better than their last album but doesn't get close to touching tell all your friends. They still do this type of music better than most other bands in their genre.

    It took me awhile to like this album but after listening to it about ten times im starting to see the good in it. The album is slightly repeative and has the potential to be so much better however it has some quality songs like Make Dame Sure. All of TBS previous album where alot better and likable, this is just ok

    ehhh. Not great, and certainly not too original. It lacks the power and feels more contained than the previous albums. They tend to soung like the Juliana Theory (first track) and even Dashboard (the bridge in track 5). Definitely a huge step down from their first cd, and better, but only by a little, than their second. Get someone to burn it for you, not really worth buying.

    Overproduced and bland. MakeDamnSure is by far the best track. None of the other songs are particularly great either. Nothing on here is bad per say but nothing lives up to their past glories. Bring back John Nolan I say!

  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]
