Taking Back Sunday have existed for almost 2 decades, gracing fans with a number of great albums and sold-out tours just about everywhere. While their newer material (especially the underrated New Again) certainly has plenty of merit and highlights, it’s their first 3 records that generally hold the most memories for long-time fans. We’re talking, of course, about Tell All Your Friends, Where You Want To Be, and Louder Now.
In a massive 20-year celebration of their inception, Taking Back Sunday are playing a selection of their albums in full, as well as releasing a greatest hits album in January. Certainly exciting times for one of the best alt-rock bands of our generation. Check out the full video below.
While not quite on the level of their debut Tell All Your Friends, Taking Back Sunday’s New Again is often overlooked in their discography. It really shouldn’t be, though! The album, which was released on this day in 2009, is often considered the band’s first “mature” album, and while that’s up for some debate, it is a solid body of work with some definite highlights.
It may be hard to believe, but acclaimed alternative rock band Taking Back Sunday’s 3rd album is now 10 years old today. I can remember the first time I heard “MakeDamnSure” on FUSE (Remember when that was the best music station on TV? I do), and though I wasn’t necessarily blown away, the album does contain some of their best songs. I mean for crying out loud, there was this girl I went to high school with who had “What’s It Feel Like To Be A Ghost?” on her Myspace for years, and in my painfully awkward teen stage, I would revisit her profile over and over again just to hear this song.
Anyhow, “Error Operator”, “Liar (It Takes One To Know One)”, and the closer “I’ll Let You Live” are some truly good tracks in the band’s discography. Below, you can find a full stream of the album. Maybe it’s time to revisit it? In my opinion, it’s the best TBS album other than TAYF and WYWTB.
