Tell All Your Friends
Frequently bought together
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
Taking Back Sunday draws forth images of what would be born of a marriage between Thursday and Saves The Day. The songs feature passionate,heartfelt lyrics that any listener easily identifies with. In December 2001,Victory Records signed Taking Back Sunday and put them in the skillful hands of producer Sal Villanueva and engineer Tim Gilles (Thursday's 'Full Collapse'). The result is a beautiful blend of passion, emotion and sincerity that is unrivaled in the budding emo-rock scene today. "Tell All Your Friends" is truly destined to be one of the breakout albums of 2002.

The opening track slowly reveals what's in store as you will find out it is a soon-to-be audible experience. "You Know How I Do," perfectly accommodates the hint of the A+ track list. Instances of the two billowy singers breaking forth a hurricane. Together, they collectively craft an ultimate product of Emo music that must - no - WILL have a fan of the genre listen to such a stir.
The second track goes on a ranting, where the guitars take a drop alongside with the drumming and a female voice fills in the background. Slowly, the frontman cries,"I'm miserable," the angelic voices fades back in, "I'm miserable. . ." the frontman bumrushes into the track with, "you got me right (holds it) where you want me!" The collectiveness of it all is a stunning welcome.
It wasn't until the third track, "Cute Without the E," did I realize that this album's potential sky-rocketed. Here, both singers came out with a foundation of energy and feelings. As their voices crossed each other, it seemed as if there were battling it out, where one singer went on as the other shrieked his heart out. This is probably an Emo-Punk grit unlike anything I've heard before. You can literally communicate with their passion. Knowingly, I could tell that this was going to be one of those albums, you covet and would be delighted to play over and over until you got sick and tired of it. Where and then after, the loss of it, you would be induced to throw it back in your stereo and repeat the beloved cycle.
In the sense, I could be a rambling fool if I were to go on, instead I'll give closure to this highly remarkable CD. The single drawback I can afford to say about it is nothing. I have no quibble over Taking Back Sunday's "Tell All Your Friends," none whatsoever. "Tell All Your Friends," crawls within you, getting you in the mood of remorse, anger, or sorrowfulness, and it just cranks up the passion their music inspires. I believe Emo-Punk truly takes its name by the heart of emotion demonstrated within its songs, and Taking Back Sunday achieves everything expected and surpasses the masses. It is worth the introduction to your friends, and lives up to be one of the best albums I've ever picked up in my lifetime.
The band lacks the intensity of Thursday and the melodic guitar lines of Samiam. Heck, even Saves the Day looks excellent compared to these guys. There is nothing about this disc that will make you come back to it, it isn't catchy, there is practically no intensity in vocals and it isn't even that deep. When you listen to a band like Thursday, you can see the pure intensity and depth in their vocals. TBS tries to capture the same flair, but they ultimately fail. This is just a boring release that really is uneeded, especailly when there are much better bands out there.
TBS will probably be a big hit in the emo genre. With bands trying to capitialize on it, whats the harm in adding in another one to the mix? This new surge in emo will ultimately find itself in the same vein as pop/punk. Be sure to eventually see these guys sell out...
