I understand the whole "Oh shit, man, we're all under some serious pressure with our new album to, you know, make it as good as our last" thing. Your fans and label all have their expectations, and of course you don't wanna let them down - that would be just terrible. But that doesn't mean you have to put out the exact same fucking album twice in a row. Musically speaking, TBS's main problem is that they write precisely two kinds of songs: energetic pop rock with whiny vocals, and midtempo power rock, again with whiny vocals. While that type of song can be a fun guilty pleasure in moderation, to endure the played-out, hilariously over-emotive same-old for an entire album is too damn much.
