In my opinion, Coming Home was New Found Glory's most mature and pleasant-to-listen-to album because of the variety of subjects contained in the lyrics. It was about falling in love, getting married, having a family together, the death of family members, etc. It appeared as though the band was growing up at least in terms of life experience. Not Without a Fight seems to be a step backwards into a typical pop-punk breakup album that was intended for high schoolers. I'm not sure if that means one of the members' marriages has deteriorated or if they just wanted a less-cheery sounding album but either way it almost sounds not genuine in its messages. Am I really supposed to believe that in a band where at least 3 members were (are?) married that "I called you 46 times and you answered on the 47th"? I expected to find a record much more like Coming Home and less like Sticks and Stones and I was fairly disappointed. I know others will feel differently for that exact comparison but personally I liked the direction the band was going in before and feel like Coming Home was recorded by a different (better) band altogether.Was this review helpful?
