The Wonder Years...I'm digging their latest record. They used to be terrible, though. Kind of remarkable how they turned it around, actually. Even the members in the band admit that they used to suck.

New song is pretty good. The bridge is all kinds of fantastic. The way Soupy's voice gets chocked up when he says "Did I fuck up?" is just perfect. Rest of the song is solid. Can't wait to hear the whole record.

The bridge is breathtaking. Soupy's voice is getting stronger and stronger. The difference between his tone on The Upsides compared to PTSD is kind of astonishing considering it's been only 3 years.

Hey, important for any fans: I have two tickets to the Philly record release show and unfortunately I can't make it to due to extenuating circumstances. Anyone who wants them I'll send 'em to you. No strings attached, no tricks. I just want them to have an awesome record release show and I'd like someone to be able to enjoy it. Let me know.

been checking out the new album on youtube. The lyrics and intensity are fucking great. The sweetness in the guy's voice takes a little going used to, sounds more like blink or other 90s/00s bands like that. Not a band thing, just more inclined towards more off center bands vocally like the Menzingers or even Gaslight

I'm avoiding heaping praise on the new record until I've heard it a couple times. Some are already calling it the greatest pop-punk album of all time and I feel like it's way too early for that.

BUT....it's fucking awesome haha. Great first impression for me.

The "pop punk" label doesn't even really fit TWY anymore outside of a scene label. There aren't really the sugary riffs that are part of the defining pop punk stereotype. If this is Pop Punk, then so is Brand New and I'm not sure this album will quite touch Deja Entendu.

That being said, if Suburbia was their Deja this is every bit their TDAGRIM.

I think this is their best record. I really do. Everything has taken a step forward in my opinion. Can't stop listening. And I wouldn't want to anyway.

Damn, I Just Want to Sell Out My Funeral is beautiful. The last two verses blow my mind. Such an epic ending to a trilogy.

I can't imagine any album in 2013 topping this for me. Seriously incredible, already one of my favorite records of all time.

i've been listening to the Wonder Years in regular rotation for over a year now, and i just realized that the lyric in "Came Out Swinging" is NOT "i guess you call this regression / left a RIMJOB and a girlfriend."

i was always confused about that line. no more!
