I was never a big fan of TBS but I really wanted to buy their most current album after seeing them at a show in 2006 with Angels and Airwaves. I went to see AvA, everyone else went to see TBS.

Needless to say I was very hopeful for this band after seeing them live and after hearing their singles on the radio but ultimately I was underwhelmed and having listened to it again I still feel the same.

The first 4 tracks are so well done and have the perfect energy with a somewhat upbeat tempo and really get you thinking this is going to be a great album. Between Liar and MakeDamnSure I can't choose which is better but they're both amazing. High energy that is really good to listen to when you're feeling sad. The opening track "What's it Feel Like to be a Ghost" is something you'd imagine My Chemical Romance doing. In fact I honestly thought it was MCR when I first heard it in my girlfriend's (at the time) car many years ago.

Up Against is a well written song that slows the tempo down a bit but still features some great vocal work

My Blue Heaven and 20/20 Surgey suck.

Spin is return to form and is on par with the first 4 tracks and it's at this point you realize that the band top loaded their album with all the good tracks and tried to spread everything else out a bit.

After this you get more melodic tracks with less than stellar vocal work and forgettable music. It's a real shame how good it started off and then trailed off into a mediocre gray blob of emo.

Good band live, decent opening tracks with 1 other good one in the middle.

Check out:

1. What's It Feel Like To Be A Ghost?
2. Liar (It Takes One To Know One)
3. MakeDamnSure
4. Up Against (Blackout)
7. Spin

Avoid everything else.
