Swing is by far my favorite song with its great guitar riffs and amazing lyrics and vocals.
Fredrick M. Starks
If you're expecting this album to be anything like the old Taking Back Sunday then I can tell you that this album probably won't make you very happy.
S. Marshall
The other thing is the change of style, it sounds just too much mainstream, feels like they were forced to.

Hang on, guys. Let's not all be so eager to hate on this album so fast, just because it isn't "Tell All Your Friends." Let's face it, not many albums in this genre are. That album was as close to perfection as you can come with one collection of songs. For people my age (I'm 26), and having grown-up on Long Island, that album expressed all the pent-up teenage angst that we didn't know how to get out, and it will always hold a certain sentimental value for me. But I digress: I recently saw TBS at a free outdoor concert near Gov't Ctr. in Boston, and I hadn't listened to "New Again" yet. But after the concert I was more intrigued, because the show was pretty impressive and very energetic. Having given this album a once-over, I first have to say that it's better than "Louder Now," and there's definitely something of a new sound coming through in tracks like "Sink Into Me," "Summer, Man," and "Carpathia." Long story short, it's not old TBS, but it's not the TBS of "Louder Now," either. Overall, it's better than people are giving it credit for, and it may be better appreciated with a little age.

If like me, you have been a fan of Taking Back Sunday since their debut album Tell All Your Friends, you no doubt have noticed with dismay that the impassioned back and forths and overlapping vocals that they innovated, and which characterize and define their distinctive sound, become increasingly sparse with the release of each new album.

This album continues that trend, and depending on the way you see it, may be construed as "original." Original is fine if improvements are made, and the album is better all things considered, but there aren't really any noticeable improvements, neither in the lyrics department or the music department. Matthew Fazzi, who replaces TBS' erstwhile lead guitarist, Fred Mascherino, lacks conspicuousness throughout, his vocals neither passionate nor powerful enough to match his predecessor's and sounding rather more like an afterthought than something integral to TBS' identity (as John Nolan's and Mascherino's did on former albums).

Granted, there are some stand-out tracks, like "Cut Me Up Jenny," a feisty song with a jaunty beat, and "Everything Must Go," a heartfelt lamentation of unrequited/capricious love reminiscent of "Brooklyn," but New Again is a supreme disappointment nevertheless. The fact that it took so many years to complete adds to the letdown after all the self-promoting ballyhoo (evident in its name "New Again"). Musically, it is less intricate than Where You Want to Be and Tell All Your Friends. Lyrically and production-wise, it is less mature and polished than Louder Now.

For those who prefer seeing some numbers:

1. New Again 4/5
2. Sink into Me 3/5
3. Lonely, Lonely 3/5
4. Summer Man 3/5
5. Swing 5/5
6. Where My Mouth Is 4/5
7. Cut me Up Jenny 5/5

I've listened to this album since it's come out and it still is great to me. Not too much different then their other later albums. Worth it to buy this and listen to it. This album is not as hard hitting, but for those who listen for the emotion in an album, this is full of a band pouring out their feelings through music.

I would like to point out, I am giving this album a 3.5, but since TBS is one of my top 3 favorite bands, I am rounding it up. And some lyrics on this album are pretty damn catchy. To me at least.

I was so looking forward to a new Taking Back Sunday album come out earlier this year. I had the date saved.

Then I heard "Sink Into Me." Honestly, at first, I didn't care for it. But after seeing them perform it live in concert, I started liking it. It had a high energy.

Fastforward to getting the album, when I first heard it, I wasn't that impressed with it. I play TAYF to death, I love WYWTB, and LN is pretty cool. I thought of LN as the weakest of the 3, but not by much. It just didn't match the first 2, but I still enjoyed playing it. I had to force myself to play NA in June. I would fiddle around with the songs, and listen to them one at a time. I will say this, right away I fell in love with "Everything Must Go." That is such a great track, vocal and lyric wise. It is so powerful, and Adam shows such great emotion. I played that song and "Sink Into Me," which really reminds me of a concert. The others I'd experiment with.

I went maybe a month without playing the album. One day while returning from a trip, I decided to play the album. Then I learned this: the album serves for great driving or traveling music. It tends to play well with the movement and scenery. I then enjoyed it. Now I have some tracks that stand out due to certain lyrics I thought were clever/catchy, like on "Catholic Knees" and "Lonely, Lonely."

I'm not as disappointed with the album like I was when I first got it 4 months ago, but it really is my least favorite of their 4.

Taking Back Sunday has been a great band from the beginning. They have had two line up changes and continue to put out quality music. New Again does not have the dual vocals that I have come to love, but it is still Taking Back Sunday and still has some very catchy tunes. Swing is by far my favorite song with its great guitar riffs and amazing lyrics and vocals. New Again shows how the band has matured and the direction they are heading in. For those people who like the first CD and that's it, then stick it in and push play, but if you would like to broaden your range of listening, then give New Again a shot.
