This Four Year Strong record isnít that different from the last album. Despite going away from synthesizers and electronics completely- it was never a huge part of their sound anyway. ďIn Some Way, Shape or FormĒ is a balls to the wall record that hits hard in every way from guitar, bass, drums, everything. Itís the typical David Bendeth record. It sounds amazing, it plays amazing, and there are some big moments on the record that are fun to listen through every time. But as good as the sounds and the guitars are, an album is only good as the songs on it. ďIn Some Way, Shape or FormĒ has some great songs but there are also plenty of normal moments on it too. Out of all of these songs there are four that are excellent. Out of those four thereís only three that youíll want to listen to regularly. Itís hard to knock an album thatís sequenced, produced, and played wonderfully but as far as bands like Four Year Strong- Terrible Things/ Taking Back Sunday/etc. this album is very plain. Four Year Strong will continue to kick ass with itís fan base and itís demo but itís hard to think that itíll get expanded with this album.
