8 December 2009


Taking Back Sunday make music for the mall-going masses and as such, they take their critical lumps. They’re not indie, they’re not obscure, they have a camera-ready lead singer and take up lots of rack space at Hot Topic. Anathema to lots of us PopMatters readers.

But don’t hate them because they’re beautiful. They also made one of the catchiest songs of 2009, the year that marked their tenth anniversary of slogging it out in tour vans and playing their hearts out all over the country and beyond. Give these guys a chance, and the infectious guitars and irresistible handclaps of “Sink Into Me” just might hook you in.
