While “If you think we suck now. just wait til we sell out” is a 2014 release. Massachusetts Agree to Disagree and their ambitious sixteen song imprint are as new to me as last night’s bowl of mac n cheese.
What I really appreciate about Agree to Disagree is that while they might easily find themselves swimming in the same waters as most of the dye in the wool Pop Punk bands you may have heard since you picked up your first Blink 182 album. Agree to Disagree have a gift of shifting from the more heartfelt and emotionally drench ballads to a more aggressive, punchy Punk sound. “On my own” serving as a perfect example. “Reunion”, one of my personal favorites feels like it could have been a hidden track or beefy B side on Saves The Day’s “Through Being Cool”. “If you think…” is highlighted by big riffs and chord changes. A vocal style that remains uplifting throughout. Overall, this was a really good listen. An album that seemed to build on it’s promise with each song. JD
