Parallax 2 is the best them

Also first!

Also, self-titled is amazing.

Nah, Colors is still the best. They will probably never top it, but if they keep making albums as good as Parallax II, I won't mind.

lolfacts.

I'll still always love TSC the most, but I love their recent work just as much for totally different reasons.

Speaking of... I would really love me some new BTBAM in the next couple years.

Of all bands you could travel for, you pick this one? You have disappointed me.

It's 90 minutes away and on a weekend.  If more bands hit Charlotte, Raleigh NC, or Columbia SC I'd go to a lot more concerts.

I kind of wish this band would stray away from the Colors sound. They seemed to keep changing album to album up until Colors and then it seems like they decided to release slight variations of Colors on the next new releases. I get that they may feel they found their sound and style but hearing it over and over again on the last few releases has made me lose a lot of interest.

One song I really love that I don't often see much love for is Swim to the Moon. I know many people often describe it as "long for the sake of being long", and while that might be right, I just think it's such a fun song, and I really do love all of the middle section, even if a lot of it are random parts. It's easily my favorite from The Great Misdirect, and probably in my top5 BTBAM songs. Love that xylophone as well.

I never got the hate for Swim to the Moon, even before I learned it was part of the Parallax storyline.

It's just a big ball of nothing to me personally. When I saw it live the crowd energy died to absolutely zero when they played it except for a small group in the front that headbanged to everything.

Tommy is awesome, though I do kind of miss his more varied harshes from the self-titled.

His incredible clean singing makes up for it, though.

Agreed. The only complaint I have about it is that the ending is a bit abrupt.
...in my opinion

I love Swim To The Moon. It might not be my favorite, but it's probably a top five. It maintains my interest throughout its entire run-time, much moreso than some of their shorter songs at least.

I absolutely love TGM for the most part (especially Mirrors), but I still think it pales in comparison to TSC and was before they really got into their own after Colors kind of knocked their world upside down.

I don't think anything will ever trump TSC for me though..it's too perfect a blend of the beautiful and macabre. I know I'm definitely in the minority on that one though. Which is fine.  :azn:

Don't know if I'd go quite that far...but it's certainly a top 5 all time BTABAM song in my book.  That song is AMAZING!!!

I felt like Parallax II was a step in the right direction. Still "progressive" but with much shorter songs.

I don't know that that's really the case, four of the songs on P2 were 9+ minutes.

I like the "more clean vocals" part.   They seem to be bringing in more harmonies.    If I had one complaint with Colors (which is brilliant), it's the monotony of the core vocals.   It feels like about an 80/20 split on Colors.   On Parallax, it feels more like 60/40.    I hope they keep going in that direction.   I don't want to see the harsh vocals go away all together, but I would rather hear them as an occasional thing to "color"  ;) the rest of the music.
