Taking Back Sunday’s original lineup gathers back together on their new self-titled release Taking Back Sunday. Starting out with a shout, the song “El Paso” has some excellent guitar sounds on it. I like the the middle fizzling out and kicking back up again. A really great Alternative Rock sounding song is the marvelous “Faith” with the message “don’t loose your faith in me, even if you lose it in everything else.” “Best Places to be A Mom” is another pretty good song in a group of songs that make a good showing.
“Sad Savior” starts out slow and cranks up to be a solid, although not a spectacular song. “Who Are You Anyway?” is quite a bit better, with some great guitars on it. “Money” has a nice grunge bass intro, and the guitars are again quite strong on this song. This one is another screamer without overdoing it. “This is All Now” has a nice sounding Alternative Rock sound. Although slightly Pop, it does not compromise anything.
“It Doesn’t Feel a Thing Like Falling” has a classic Alternative Rock sound. I like the guitars considerably on this song. One of the strongest if not the best song. “Since You’re Gone” has some interesting piano breaks in a another solid Alternative Rock song. Very little weakness is found throughout this release. “You Got Me” is yet another great sounding song with more great guitars. “Call Me in the Morning” is a decent mellow song. It’s downfull is most likely the strength of the other songs here. Four star listening is found on Taking Back Sunday’s new self titled release.
Taking Back Sunday is: John Nolan (vocals, lead guitar, keyboards), Mark O’Connell (drums), Eddie Reyes (rhythm guitar), Shaun Cooper (bass) and Adam Lazzara (lead vocals).
