(I haven't read any posts yet in this thread)

I don't like this sound, and after first run through , I don't like this album.

To me, it sounds like an album full of lyrically and melodically depressed b-sides. I'm happy the band wanted to change and it won't effect my love or support for them. But this album isn't for me. I do however hope many of you like it. Just not for me!

I like that there are plenty of effects everywhere. It does sound really 80's in a way. All in all it's good for me.

1) I'm glad we have your approval.

2) Why do you assume we don't like it because it doesn't sound like their previous work? Not about being different, about not being enjoyable.

3) Thanks for letting us know Get Hurt is the next step, and that our preference can't control that.

4) This is actually the strangest comment I've seen on this thread so far.

Get Hurt was an incredibly perfect title for this album.

As I said, I don't like it. It's not for me, and and it's not for everyone. Same can be said for every band and every album. But I hope you guys enjoy it.

That said someone should keep an eye on Brian because my man is depressed.

He doesn't seem the best does he? And thats why i think this is difficult to listen to. It's like hearing Elliot Smith retrospectively.

Still liking it, though I see why many of you are walking away from it... It barely sounds like TGA anymore. But as I read above, it's probably not for everyone, just as no other record is either.

OK - I'll admit it since nobody else seems to want to. I thoroughly enjoyed Mama's Boy.

I've listened on repeat 3 times and so far there really isn't anything I want to skip over or hurry up and be done with so I can hear the next track.

I think this is solid but is more in line with the other music I listen to.  For whatever reason I feel like I have different taste in music than most TGA fans, especially those in their 20s and younger.

I really think this is a step forward in them growing as a band to be honest.  I haven't had a lot of postive to say about the band since the Music Hall Williamsburg and Terminal 5 shows but I like this and feel encouraged.  (I just hope the PNC show doesn't crush all of that  Smile )

Cheers!

I've listened to it about 5 times now.
My girlfriend came home and sat down with me during Have Mercy.
Instantly my favourite song at the moment, can't understand why it's a b-side now

Yeah, I cancelled my preorder. May seem really soon to do so (and it is), but after listening to it twice, there was no question. I know that sometimes you gotta let an album grow on you, but the process of doing so should be an enjoyable one, like breaking in a new pair of shoes or a leather chair, getting more and more comfortable as you experience it. But Get Hurt was a particularly bad listening experience both times, and I had no desire to do a third. I think most of us have enough of a relationship with music to know the albums we like, the ones that will grow, and the ones we don't need to spend any more time on. If I hate an album the first couple times I listen to it, I'm not going to force it. There's no fun in that.

Glad there are people that like it, and I hope the band does well with it, but I'm fine chalking it up as a loss in my book.

Yeah, man, that's a great one. There's only a few from the record I like, but that's one of the tracks I love.

I may be the exception, but I like the transition in "Stay vicious".
