    Done listening to them, and the verdict is: they are alright. Nothing spectacular. I gave each one a couple good listen through's and, while I liked some songs, nothing seemed to really grasp me. They are worthy of a listen if you are curious.

    How? Did you only listen to three albums this year?
    "I'll die before I surrender, Tim".

    Be nice Jakebert.



    Lyrically, its incredibly romantic/sentimental, but that's forgivable: its the type of stuff that makes you fall in love with rock'n'roll again. I've liked everything they've done so far, but this record sounds like it really should have been the follow up to the 59' Sound: since its a perfect blend of that album and their debut (Sink or Swim). The first two tracks still send shivers down my spine after repeated listens. This may be the closest thing an album comes to challenging the Menzinger's On the Impossible past for my album of the year.

    The title track:

    I try but sometimes I just gotta let go and do what feels right.
    "I'll die before I surrender, Tim".

    He might have just listened to three albums released in 2012, but might have listened to a bunch of older albums. I do the same thing, because I feel that there are a lot of albums I need to catch up with, although I think this year will be a record for listening to new albums, because there are a lot of them released this year which I look forward to.

    Summary so far this year:

    1st place Classics of Love - S/T
    2nd place Cloud Nothings - Attack On Memory
    3rd place Offspring - Days Go By. It was fine.

    Other albums I've listened to:
    Pennywise - All or Nothing. Didn't care for it
    Linkin Park -Living Things. Nope, didn't care for it either.
    Prawn - Ships EP. Yuck...
    Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten. Boring, but okay I guess.
    Cancer Bats - Dead Set on Living. Ugh no thank you.
    Binary Heart - At Your Lowest. Uninspiring and too poppy.
