Taking Back Sunday are a band who truly need no introduction. Since forming in Long Island in 1999, the group have sold millions of albums, evolved from a scrappy punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. That spirit of resilience and innovation is dripping all over the band's sixth full-length Happiness Is (which is also their first release for ... Read more in Amazon's Taking Back Sunday Store

Editorial Reviews

2007 collection from the band that originally spearheaded the Emo-Punk movement. Notes From The Past is not just a retrospective collection of the work the band did with the celebrated Chicago independent label Victory Records, but it is a reminder of how powerful the Punk Rock aesthetic of DIY really means. It reaffirms how special these albums were to the scene and how this music will last for years to come. Be a part of history and hear the songs that helped start a movement and made Punk Rock fans across the world tell all their friends about Taking Back Sunday and Victory Records. Notes From The Past also includes the classic B-sides 'The Ballad of Sal Villanueva' and 'Your Own Disaster'.

Customer Reviews

Looks like Victory Records really just wants more money.
JMCW
They have never been a band to put a cd out with some genuine songs and a couple of singles to hit the radio.

The two new tracks--the final two on the album--aren't very good, either.

This album will have little to offer devoted TBS fans due to the fact that it only has two unreleased songs (the last two). Unless you're a diehard TBS fan, beware paying $5/track (assuming that the value of the songs you already own is 0) unless you just have to have every CD created by the band. If you can, buy the songs as individual tracks.

However, if you have never bought a TBS album and are starting to listen to them, this might be a good starting point because it's a good compilation of the highlights of their first 3 albums.

4 stars because I just love the music, and although seemingly just a repackage to make some cash, this album is not aimed at people that already own their other albums and because this is a great collection of songs.

Just repackaged tunes from albums you probably already have. The two new tracks--the final two on the album--aren't very good, either. Definitely not what I was hoping for.

True, this album is just a compilation of songs from "Tell All Your Friends" and "Where You Want To Be",
But I feel like it takes the best songs from each album and highlights the craftsmenship and musicianship of this once great band.
I say once great, because after "Where You Want To Be" I feel like the band just starts to go downhill.
But nothing is better than some good old Taking Back Sunday.
And this premature greatest hits compilation delivers in a satisfying way.
Ordering the albums seperately would be a better thing to do, but for those who just want some very good tracks without shelling out the cash for both albums, this is it. Highlighting the highest points of this band and including their best tracks, this is really the last great Victory Records release.
The two bonus tracks almost make it worth the purchase alone.
I am very happy with this album and suggest it for any early Taking Back Sunday fan.
It overflows with nostalgia and the overall vibe that only this band can deliver properly.
What more could you ask for from a greatest hits compilation? Because these truly are their greatest tracks.

I am a TBS fan and have been since their first full length, "tell all your friends". If you enjoy any of the music from their albums, you might as well just get the entire album- but not "Notes from the Past," which is half the songs from each first two albums. Taking Back Sunday creates great albums. They have never been a band to put a cd out with some genuine songs and a couple of singles to hit the radio. All their albums are full of songs that belong on the album. The songs they put on this one aren't even the best ones off those two albums.
After "Tell All Your Friends," "Where You Want to Be" was a great follow up. A great concept album that has a slightly different sound, more mature with just as much emotion. Produced with more techniques in playing and collaborating as well as more styles of singing the lyrics. They are a little more aware of the ranges they can reach and show a unique style, catchy enough to catch on to.

If you'd like to get a good mix of songs from different albums, get "Louder Now Part 2". Some people tend to stay away from live albums since they don't sound nearly as clean or clear as their studio songs but the sound production is great for that album and the choice of songs gives you the great range of energy Taking Back Sunday represents. You also get a DVD to see for yourself that they can really play a live show that accurately.

The third album "Louder Now" opened the eyes of the fans to show how much energy they can put into Rock music. It's almost like they were letting you relax while listening to their previous concept albums and then suddenly woke you up with impressive, faster, riffs and when the pace isn't too fast, they'll pickup and drop the whole mood of the song with such energy.

This has all the best of the old. Nothing New. If you bought one of the early editions of Tell All Your Friends you probably didn't get The Ballad of Sal Villanueva or Your Own Disaster. Worth it as a gift or for the truly dedicated.

Yes this is just a way for Victory Records to capitalize on TBS' fame but at the same time, this album contains some of TBS' best work. Old TBS is way better than the MTV TBS and those of you complaining that there are no Louder Now tracks on the album should be happy that this CD contains older tracks. My guess is that many current TBS fans heard their new stuff on the radio or MTV but haven't heard their older, better stuff. You should thank Victory for enlightening you.
