what an amazing album, I mean really.
ahhhh the memories.
Any love for this classic here?
Cute without the E is great, a lot of it causes me to break out into song.
I'M OUTSIDE OF YOUR WINDDDOOOOWWWWW?!
it's just so youthful and alive haha. Same goes for Full Collapse, but that's much darker.
this is a great album. I personally prefer Where you want to be. But all taking back sunday is generally pretty good taking back sunday (!)
Agreed also about the Thursday stuff!x
this is a fantastic album.
Thursday are the emo kingz 4eva.
they were much better, but this album is more fun and OCish. I kinda see bands like American Football and This Town Needs Guns as the mature sort of emo that looks back on naive times like this.
I see you like Further Seems Forever, they were another one too! Did you see their tour with Thursday and Coheed? Good times :)
it was bitchin.
So, so soooo many good times pretending to be John Nolan to this album in my room.
It's really weird.
Nine times out of ten I'd listen to an album like this and think "eurgh", but for some reason, there's just something really...likeable(?) about this album.
It's teenage angst multiplied by a thousand yet somehow is all the better for it.
Maybe it's the dual voacls...
I love the way he sticks words together. It's a classic album, and will be remembered as such. Just really, really good.
I used to really like TBS.
I've seen them twice!
cute without the e and timberwolves - tunes and a half
Awesome album. I don't play it as much as I should though.
and didn't need to be good...
is a massive tune though.
are much better than their first attempt.
I personally really enjoy listening to them. They're an awful lot better than TBS are now anyway lol.
And, whilst it wasn't totally their fault, it still remains one of the worst performances I've seen from a band. Started of on the wrong foot and never got much better I'm afraid.
She is mega-hot though.
All I'm saying is I need to MTFU.
I'll just be... going over HERE now.
but this album always has and always will have a lasting, profound effect on me.
I just remember hearing the 'she says c'mon c'mon' on p-rock once whilst doing my homework and thinking wtf?
this is the best thing ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olchhD9_T3E
SO SICK SO SICK OF BEING TIRED! AND OH SO TIRED OF BEING SICK!
I wish I could swing a mic like Adam Lazarra.
Bet you don't even like Thursday. Or JEW.
despite being well into emo.
i just thought that Thursday had more to say and darker subjects to cover (rather than the usual break-up yawn-fest)
and a band like Further Seems Forever had really really interesting and fairly experimental music.
Senses Fail were more passionate and racing musically.
Funeral For A Friend (in 2003 at least) were the most exciting british band i knew about.
i still listened to them every now and then, but i just didn't like them as much as the bands mentioned above.
But never did.
Senses Fail were shite.
The Juliana Theory though, now there's a band.
the Senses Fail were a bit rubbish, but their drums always sounded so good! it got my heart racing.
agreed about FSF. they never quite got it together, but had some awesome songs still.
the drummer was pretty special. i think that's what i loved.
I couldn't even say which vocalist was best. The third one maybe, just because the acoustic bonus tracks at the end of the album are ace!
...is probably the only FSF album that's worth giving a go.
Jason was by far the best vocalist.
not quite sure why though. chris carrabba was tainted by his solo things (which were remorselessly wet).
the moon is down was a more poppy album. more conventionally 'emo'.
HTSAF was darker, i liked that.
You know, looking through my record collection I have a lot of emo I haven't listened to in aaaages.
The Beautiful Mistake anyone?
but, still yes!
My Awesome Compilation?
Saves The Day?
Motion City Soundtrack?
Another band in my collection!
My Awesome Compilation weren't good though.
And Motion City Soundtrack were trying to hard to be Weezer - they actually just ended up sounding like OK GO.
had one good song.
i liked Motion City! the first album was really really good. they got a bit bad after that.
i understand the OK GO reference though...stop making me not like motion city soundtrack!
I just went off them very quickly.
If it's an consolation the first OK GO album was constantly on my stereo one summer.
for having stolen my CD collection.

songs i have ever heard.
or Full Collapse?
Full Collapse was a beast. the follow-up not so much, but i still liked it.
(I'm discounting Brand New).
War All The Time is still a great album too.
Streaks in the Sky and Ian Curtis are incredible songs.
Never really got on with Full Collapse, I liked it but not enough for it to be a treasured favourite like Waiting is.
War All The Time was pretty mediocre, title track, this song brought to you by a failing bomb, signals over the air and the last one with lyrics about pulling wings off a butterfly excepted.
I don't want to hear the most recent one.
i had this side of brightness, though, which was lovely.
Apparently difficult to get hold of now. It's very raw and primal in a way. Song about Ian Curtis on it as well. And some spoken word.
Waiting has some beautiful tunes, esp Where The Circle Ends.
'I had a dream last night and in my dream I robbed a country club.
A 5 year old tried to stop me, but I shot him through the head, and now he's dead.'
yeh, the less said about their lyrics the better. cringeworthy, even my most emo moments i would never take the lyrics seriously.
it was all about the music with them. great music for back then.
I've just ordered it now.
if you listened to it 4 years ago.... more for nostalgia and as a way of understanding what 'emo' was at one point and how it has evolved.
Time travel not being possible, is it worth me ordering it then?
if so, it's worth getting. one of those 'important' albums for the genre.
they're better than JEW (who I maintain are massively overrated SDRE lite)
Clarity and Bleed American are stonking albums.
Singles band. A very good singles band, but a singles band nonetheless. Millions have tried to sway me, but I won't yield on this point.
You're still wrong though.
I'd still say give it a go - but maybe download it first.
It's one of those albums I bring out once in a blue moon and stick in the CD changer in my car and still really enjoy it.
I think it encapsulates everything a "guilty pleasure" should be.
But then again, saying that I AM 26 :(
still enjoy good emo and still feel a little adolescent, you'll almost certainly like it.
start a thread about some lame-ass emo album from a few years ago
"mics are for singin', not for swingin'"
that that is one of the funniest t-shirts I have ever seen.
This video adds a whole new complication to the TBS history for me which has sent my fan boy mind into overdrive. I was under the impression Jeese left the band before they wrote There's No I In Team and John wrote it about him. Jesse then wrote Brand New's 70xSeven in response, but this video suggests otherwise. Unless it's from after Jeese and John patched things up. Adam also mentions in that video that "this song is called 80xSeven or there's no I in team depending on which record you bought first", which makes me think Jeese wrote the Brand New version of the song and took the original TBS song name to add a bit more bite to it, as if it needed any more.
Internet says Adam fell out with John and Shaun as he cheated on Michelle Nolan, hence Straylight Run, which until recently also had the added spice of Fred and Will from Breaking Pangea in TBS and Straylight respectively. Fred has left TBS now though. I wasn't aware that Jesse and Adam had such a grudge, I'm assuming it's just because of the Adam and John thing?
All of this is based on internet rumour and therefore probably has zero truth to it, but I enjoy it because I'm a TBS Fan-boy and love filthy gossip.
I didn't expect people on here to like them.
It is a very good album, and the only one I still (occasionally) listen to from my emo phase.
You're So Last Summer & Timberwolves at New Jersey = <3
that album is a crock of cock
i love brand new, JEW, thursday and others mentioned in this thread but i really dislike this album. something about it just doesn't click with me and it never did. ah well!
that doesn't have a duff song on it and it's the perfect length (just over 30 mins or so?) I fucking love 'You're So Last Summer.'
I like to pretend I can play the piano at the start of 'The Blue Channel' then I throw myself into something when it all kicks in.
It is great, they still write some top 'anthems' as well but they're all a bit too polished and poppy these days. Plus I'll aways see it as a rivalry between them and Brand New, and Brand New will win every time.
"I DIDN'T WANT IT TO MEAN THAT MUCH TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
Listened to this song in the car the other day and had a bit of a nostalgic singalong moment.
