"It's a Growl Thing"

This is a blog that focuses on metal, rock & hardcore/punk music. I'll be writing reviews on songs that I like, albums I love and concerts that I enjoyed! You'll find both new and old music here.

Taking Back Sunday was founded in 1999 by guitarist Eddie Reyes and consists (Besides Reyes) of Adam Lazzara (Lead vocals), John Nolan (Lead guitars, co-lead vocals), Shaun Cooper (Bass) and Mark O’Connell (Drums). They released their first album Tell All Your Friends in 2002 and received very good reviews, scoring a 5/5 on Sputnikmusic and Alternative Press. The album was certified gold by the RIAA. Cute Without The ‘E’ was the third single from the album.

Cute Without The ‘E’ has a pretty sad vibe to it. The song shifts after about two minutes from being “angry” and energetic to a more melodic and soft part. I absolutely love the vocals on this track; they fit well together and create a vibe in the song giving it some emotion. The lyrics are also great and also provides a good emotional text -

Hoping for the best, just hoping nothing happens

A thousand clever lines unread on clever napkins

I will never ask if you don’t ever tell me

I know you well enough to know you never loved me”


This was one of my favorite songs a couple of years ago and is still a song I listen to a lot. They’re currently writing new material for their new album!
