Tell All Your Friends to avoid Louder Now
Louder Now was a huge letdown to all the longtime fans of Taking Back Sunday. This new Taking Back Sunday lacks everything it once had. Gone are the superior lyrics, unique sound, and powerful emotion. It is hard to believe that this same band once produced songs like Cute Without the 'E and There's No I In Team where the sound of the band's anger was tangible or anthing like Great Romances of the 20th Century where you too, could feel the sadness and self-mockery. Where You Want to Be suffered from the sudden loss of two band members, namely John Nolan but it still echoed the old power of the band with a promise of its possible return. We weren't that lucky. Louder Now is a boringly pop-like album, containing anticlimatic and irksome sound, (Especially in Divine Intervention, which contains an especially annoying clicking noise in the background and irritating howls of MI-AM-I in the song of the same name), with the same, meaninglessly standard lyrics of every add-water "emo" band. In a butchered version of Error: Operator, they say "We can't go back". I certainly hope they can.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
