Limited appeal (he says waiting for anti EMO/rock cold voters!) but good price for CD/DVD if you fancy it!

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "[A] mammoth rock beast of an album....Without doubt the best of 2006 so far, and one that will give your goose bumps goosebumps."

Description from Amazon:

If you want the two word review, it's right there in the title: Louder Now, the third album from New York's Taking Back Sunday, is heavier, ballsier and all round bigger than its predecessors, like the soggy-hanky emo of 2004's Where You Want To Be took some lessons from Charles Atlas and came back to kick sand in everyone's face. In part, this is down to the visceral production of Eric Valentine, last seen working the desk for Queens Of The Stone Age. But the band have hardened up, too: 'Liar (It Takes One To Know One' builds from a tricksy, ska-tinged verse to a seismic chorus, frontman Adam Lazzara and guitarist Fred Mascherino sparring manfully atop a roar of rock guitars, while 'Make Damn Sure' is perhaps the album's stand-out, a canyon-sized chorus that renders emo passion with stadium scope. The irony here, perhaps, is that in toughening up their sound, Taking Back Sunday have actually made a more straightforward "rock" record than anything came before. Later in the album, though, there's a few moments where TBS ease off the gas, with interesting results: see 'Divine Intervention', a spare, introspective acoustic track with distant percussion and subtle, strange tape effects. Meanwhile, a limited reissue adds a 90 minute DVD and four live tracks.

Very good album... not as good as the earlier stuff - but excellent for both DVD and CD.
Voted hot.

Voted both hot deals actually. On the strength of the price reduction alone.

Hey, I only reacted on the MCR thread to the quote from the band. I'm not interested in prolonged arguing about music. I'll voice my opinion on whether I think someone's is good, **** or if I'm indifferent (ie don't hate em, don't love em) as I am in this case.

I just laugh when people feel the need to tell me that's my opinion. Of course it is. It's not like I prefer to have someone else's opinion or psychic powers to force my opinion into the head of someone else.

And as for it being a better world if we all just got along... well yeah, no one should get worked up about it, but that's true for everything (talking to you football team supporters). But a bit of healthy slagging off of bands is much less boring than the musical 'if you say so' utopian nightmare of blandness.

That's so beautifully profound. The poets of our generation. Sniff. *wipes tear from eye and votes hot*

Same as MCR for me, don't like the music but gotta get a hot vote for the price. Besides if we all had the same tastes life would be extremely dull :-D
