I did a search and there isn't a specific thread for these legends. Now, I'm not a fan of pop punk at all nowadays, however when I was younger one of the bands I really loved was New Found Glory. In fact, these guys made me pick up a guitar. They have been the only one true pop punk band I ever liked.
I recently started to listen to my old records and I've got to say, New Found Glory really reminded me of those fun days - y'know, all fun and play and nothing was serious? They're in a league of their own (in my opinion) and I believe, they were better at the pop punk stuff than the likes of Blink 182 and Green Day. They were somewhat different if you catch my drift? They always make catchy melodies and I never get tired of listening to them. I especially like the interludes they always do such as in, "It's been a summer", "Understatement", "Head on Collision", "Forget my name".

My favourite New Found Glory album is definitely Sticks and Stones but I really like the old stuff like the self titled album. I have all the albums they've done and like every single one, save for the most recent one (which i'm still listening to and making an informed opinion on whether I like it or not).

Anyway, discuss.

Full Sticks and Stones Album here, for those of you who have never heard of them:
Understatement
My Friends over You
Sonny
Something I call Personality
Head on Collision
It's been a Summer
Forget My name
Never Give Up
The Great Houdini (couldn't find a link)
Singled Out (couldn't find a link)
Belated (Instrumental soundcheck/bad quality)
The Story so far
Anniversary (couldn't find a link)
Forget Everything (couldn't find a link)

If you like what you hear, get the album tomorrow.

I adore New Found Glory - sitting, listening, and reminiscing is amazing.

I think self-titled is my favourite album, although Sticks and Stones comes pretty close.

When I saw them support Green Day a few years ago I was completely blown away - brilliant live.

Similar to you, I haven't quite made up my mind about Coming Home - they're pretty much all good songs, just not New Found Glory songs, if you know what I mean.

Yeah - especially Sticks and Stones. That one will always stay through my childhood. God, that record made most of my Year 7 .

I liked Sticks and Stones, the S-T, and Nothing Gold Can Stay. NFG will always be in my heart even though I don't listen to them much any more, but the memories come rushing back everytime I hear Hit or Miss.

Just listen to the links above and you never know, you may change your mind - all I ask.

EDIT: Their new album sounds somewhat, Jimmy Eat Worldish. Anyone catch that?

New Found Glory, the 1st band that I ever liked. I loved Sticks and Stones, I loved Catalyst, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get into Coming Home. I'm down with the whole, "We're growing up and maturing musically" thing, but it doesn't work for NFG. They need to be straight up pop punk again
"For Us, For Them, For You"
#17
NFG is one of my favorite bands and I still listen to them all the time. The newest album 'Coming Home" is crap IMO. They were much better in the Sticks and Stones era.
#18
Yeah - they are maturing and its evident. Ian shaved his beard and he's not exactly clean shaven but his hair is definitely neater, Jordan's hair is completely untouched (I don't think he cares about his hair anymore) and the rest of the band dress a lot smarter (no more t-shirts - they're all trousers and suits/sweaters). But I don't think Coming Home is bad. Sure, it might be a little different - not exactly "fun" anymore (save for, Hold My Hand), but it's grown up. Admit it, they still make catchy tunes and the new album is living proof.

Don't forget, most of them are married now and that's definitely music-changing. They don't want to sing about fun stuff anymore: they want to be serious, or rather, it just comes out serious naturally. I think they've dropped the whole words on a t-shirt/clothes thing.

Before:


After:


Come on, It's not your fault, Oxygen etc are great catchy tunes.

That is true, but like I said, their punk stuff was wayyyyyy catchier

Holy crap, have they completely changed...the band as musicians are only getting better and you can't deny it. Listen to this:

Wow..Jordan's vocals are so much better than they were before.

Fuck, this one is unbelievable:

He sounds ten times better live than on CD.

Thats rare.
And if ever You come near, I will hold up high a mirror.
Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as You.

I know - that's what I meant about Jordan definitely improving as a musician. His voice in that Live electric track shits all over the CD version. Notice, he's not as jumpy as he used to be. His jumping now seems really purposeful (his hand motions show it all).

Lyrics
Let's make a date out of the cinema
Then stay out till early in the morning
I always like it cause we take it slow
While everyone around us seems so hurried

It feels familiar, cause I've been here before
When your words
Swept the ground right from under me
Remember when you were so insecure
Now you can't get your hands up off of me

But the time we spent was so short
Can't believe it's time to go again
You're always on my mind, all the time
On my mind, believe it

Can we pick it up where you left off
When you said you'll never get over me
I'll take for granted every roll off your tongue
Cause you're screaming out all your honesty

You know it's time,
You see the bags at the door
I'm minutes away from departing
In exchange for a few last words
Will never be enough for me

Now, no one can deny again, how much they've improved.

Wasn't somebody from NFG in Shai Hulud?


Anyways, I never really got in to this band, but they are good to listen to sometimes. I do really like Head on Collision though.

Yeah - it was Steve I think. Or Chad. He does a lot of screaming though on the records though.

New Found Glory, legends? I think you got a little carried away there. Overall, some good early pop punk, the newer stuff doesn't catch my ear anymore.
