    I took out all of my old TBS cds and have been listening to them for the last few weeks in anticipation of this new cd. What a let down. The new cd is boring. I can't figure out exactly why. I want to like it, but it just doesn't do it for me. Maybe that guy that screamed in the background really was that important to the sound of this band...hahaha.

    Apart from the truly great 'Sink into Me' and 'Everything Must Go', Taking Back Sunday's 4th outing sounds like slight deja vu- a step backwards to what made their first two releases ok, but ultimately better than the dross of Louder Now. Either way this is not going to make fans from first time listeners.

  1. New Again leaps forward as the best album of Taking Back Sunday's career to date.
  2. On New Again, the emo survivors manage to reinvent themselves as mainstreamo shredders.

    Frontman Adam Lazzara's temper tantrums sound more sore- than full-throated, but they still freeze blood for short stretches, while the revolving choruses are as enormous and polished as Boeings.
