iTunes Review

Is it possible to fall in love in a swarming pit? Taking Back Sunday’s wall of guitars, revealing lyrics and wailing choruses not only make it possible but inevitable. TBS create the kind of explosive, four-on-the-floor hard rock kissed with passionate (but not emo) pop that appeal to both hardened souls and sensitive blog types. New Again spreads the appeal even farther, documenting more of TBS’s awesome power with vocalist Adam Lazzara at his most candid. There are a few changes — the departure of guitarist Fred Mascherino and the addition of Matt Fazzi, a shot at three-part harmonies, a bass solo on “Carpathia” — but the energy is distinctly TBS: pure and primal. “Everything Must Go” appears to be the newest anthem to stack on the TBS woodpile. “Capital M-E” is a not-so-veiled shot at Mascherino (who famously revealed to Newsday the band was “more about cooking food than making music”). “Sink Into Me” is the big single with all upgrades firing on all cylinders. New Again breathe new life into a band ready for its second half.

TBS Present Something New (Again)

You've got to give Adam Lazaara and his team some serious credit. For a long time now, a vast majority of Taking Back Sunday fans have been stuck in a self-created time capsule. The release of their sophmore album, Where You Want to Be, lost the band a mass of fans for no reason better than a progression in sound and slight lineup change. With the release of their third album, Louder Now, an even more distinct change could be heard - much of the band's signature sound had evolved (but not necissarily vanished). Yet somehow, the band garnered mass criticism from their long time finds (but rave reviews from critics). But Taking Back Sunday are artists - and as such, they have continually refused to do the same thing over. New Again is no exception. On their fourth major label album, Taking Back Sunday have yet again redefined their sound. Last year saw secondary vocalist and guitarist Fred Mascherino leaving the band. Adding a new guitarist/backup vocalist helped TBS refine their sound even further, and in some ways, transform into something different all-together. With Mascherino's departure, Lazaara has taken the role of lead vocalist. Gone are the dueling vocals that drove the past three albums. This is perhaps the only step in TBS evolution that this reviewer will complain about. The on-off combatting vocal lines have always been one of the signature pieces of the TBS puzzle. However, as disappointing as this change is, Lazaara is a very adequate vocalist. The album doesn't suffer for it. It just feels a little less like Taking Back Sunday (and maybe something more like Showbread's "Age of Reptiles"). Musically, New Again is TBS's most mature album to date. Almost every song on the album presents something new creatively. One of the most impressive songs on the album is the closer "Everything Must Go". It's a blend of beauty and aggression in the way only TBS can manage. There are several well written hard hitting tracks, such as "Lonely, Lonely" and "Carpathia" that will have you blasting the stereo in your car. But the album really shines when it strikes the pop-rock feel TBS are typically known for on pieces such as "New Again" and "Sink Into Me". Lyrically, New Again finds Lazaara at his most honest. "Where My Mouth Is" confronts a long time drug addiction and the effects it had on the people in his life. "Everything Must Go" is a marvelously crafted piece about his former fiance. Much of the clever wordplay of former TBS albums is exchanged for honest, painful, yet artistic beauty. New Again is definitely a new direction for Taking Back Sunday. But if you're willing to accept the fact that you're not going to hear "Tell All Your Friends" again, then you may find just what you were looking for - an incredibly catchy rock album with more than a little depth. New Again will appeal to old-time TBS fans with a willingness to bend a little, and new fans alike. Pick it up. You won't regret it.

Finally Here!
