Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends

Lumping bands and songs into just a few genres can be kind of dangerous, but that's exactly what I've been attempting to do. I'm trying to space out so I don't go too nuts on my sweet spot genres like hip hop and classic rock. So I've got a category called 'punk' that I've lumped Killers, My Chemical Romance, White Stripes etc in. Well, I'm putting Taking Back Sunday in that category too. I guess it's like an emo type music, but whatever. The system has flaws but the end goal is I think being achieved. A friend of mine tossed this recommendation my way a LONG time ago. Sometime in 2006 I think. I don't listen often, but I've been tuned in to the band since then. They've put out 3 more record I think since then, and none of them tickled me silly. This was probably the one I find listening to the most singles off of, but that might not be saying much. Just when I think they're lyrically solid, they make a really dumb song that you can't follow. Their guitar work is pretty good and some drum beats are solid as well. Other than that, I've never seen them live - but I heard they really lack luster there too. Check out the Top 3 and make a call on that. You may want to pick out some more TBS stuff, or you may want to wait until the next review.
