Yay Cleveland! But yeah, I can't stop listening to Attack on Memory, especially the first three tracks and 'Fall In'...

It's a good album, but a severe mish mash, with no cohesion at all. Which I do think was intentional, but after listening to it three times, I would rather take a few songs out and listen to them individually.

Yeah that's the conclusion I've come to. It's a good album but the lack of focus really does kind of bug me. There's such a jarring shift in tone between "Wasted Days" and "Fall In" that makes me almost want to skip the latter. I would have also chosen to end the album with "Wasted Days" and moved "Our Plans" and "Cut You" to the beginning, then just let the album build up from there. Still as far as 2012 goes, it's a great way to start the year off and the album has been in my cars CD player for over two weeks now.

I heard a couple of songs by these guys about two years ago and I thought they sucked balls, but this new album of theirs seems pretty good. The opening song 'No Future/No Past' didn't really grab me but the music just clicked with me during 'Wasted Days'. I pretty cool song I must say. Also is it me or does 'Fall In' sound like Stiff Little Fingers circa Inflammable Material?

I thought "Fall In" was more Green Day circa Nimrod to be honest, the vocals do kind of remind me of Jake Burns a bit, and I suppose "Barbed Wire Love" does have a pretty similar opening.

I am still waiting to get over their first album! Ive been exclusively listening to it for about a week now. Their new stuff from what youtube has shown me is pretty awesome. I hear the wipers in some of their songs. I love the wipers.

I agree! Haven't heard earlier stuff that much before but this is great.

'Stay Useless' really sounds like a The Strokes song with an attitude. Has that guitar interplay and simple drum beat at the beginning...
