    Tell All Your Friends

    by Samuel Barker

    Meet the new kinder, gentler Victory Records. After having many of its hardcore marquees bail out for major labels, Victory has been dipping into other musical styles for new talent, which is a good thing.

    Taking Back Sunday is one of these newer, nicer bands. There is still a definitely edge, which Victory fans can relate to, but there is also harmony which some of them may struggle to comprehend.

    Tell All Your Friends has a root in pop punk, but the hectic dueling vocals make the music have a definite chaos to it. In some ways this is a nice addition to the album and makes for an interesting sound. On the other hand, the songs could use some more substance and a hint of boundary.

    Music should never be totally predictable. However, when there is a loss of control on a band's part, you lose the ability to find the groove, which is what music is all about, finding the groove.
