Label: Warner If there is one sorely misunderstood and under-rated record of Taking Back Sunday’s, it’s their 2011 self-titled LP. Their fifth album is far better than most people ever gave it credit for. There’s honestly so much to love about this record, with this titular work standing proud at this great crossroads for the band’s sound. It’s got those ear-worming and cleverly-written hooks; the trademarked giant choruses, the grittiness and energy in the vocals and the riffs; and that maturity the band were heading in with lyricism and tone. I just cannot stress how good of a happy-medium this record was for TBS at the time and since. Of the later-day TBS albums this decade, this is easily the best one, and it also fairs beautifully well against their most-acclaimed earlier releases.
