Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
Taking Back Sunday’s first and most acclaimed album, Tell All Your Friends reaches its tenth birthday this year and all manner of celebrations are happening in light of it. TBS have embarked on an anniversary tour and are playing the album, in full, every night this month. They've also repressed the record for the sixth time and with a November 20th release date, it’s all too convenient for those who are still looking for gifts this holiday season.
Tell All Your Friends is great because of its nostalgia inducing quality and timeless charm. The opening notes of "You Know How I Do" still get me every time. It's one of those records that can bring you back to wherever/whoever you were when you first heard it. It being early in the band's career means a lot of fans have grown up quite a bit by now - and to have that old feeling back for about a half hour is well worth whatever it takes to reconnect with this album. It's a fantastic throwback gift idea, and because it's being repressed this month you won't have to do much searching to get your hands on it!
