"an amazing band",
By A Customer
This review is from: Tell All Your Friends (Audio CD)
I suppose i would personally say that Taking Back Sunday are most like Finch or maybe Thursday "catchy tunes" with a mixture of screams and more melodic layered voices and very heartfelt and emotional lyrics.
The lyrics are VERY emotional (suppose thats why they call it "emo") and although some songs are uplifting there's an underlying story of heartbreak in many of the songs. Not the alubm to listen to you when you're wanting to get over someone! However, the detailed lyrics with plenty of differnet interpretations make a refreshing change from the manufactured pop sounding lyrics which are simplistic and a bore to listen to.
Overall, Taking Back Sunday are "an amazing band" certain aspects of them sound like a few of the bands out there but they are very unique in many ways. Again it is the great emotion that seems to be poured into every song that really makes listening to this album enjoyable to me. I;d recommend it to everyone.
