Sound — 10
Taking Back Sunday have really shown their musical talent in this album. They've got really great solos for each instrument. Also, I was impressed by how much they've accomplished since their last album. The sound is really exciting and complex, punk bands just don't get better than that.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics in the album were pretty fun and catchy. They confused me a bit at first, but they got better as I listened to the album more. Adam Lazzara's got an amazing voice and it goes beutifully with the lyrics. Back up singing is well mixed too, a bit overdone at times but still great.
Overall Impression — 10
I really enjoyed this album and would buy it again if it got stolen or lost. I can tell tbs has worked hard to make this record out and that's really what makes them shine. Some great tracks are 'The Union,' 'New American Classic' and 'Little Devotional'.
