TBD vs Catching Fire

Postby sprinks41 on Sat Sep 07, 2019 5:21 am

It seems like once OID dropped, the forum got active and now it's quiet again. So I thought I'd get a conversation started based on something I've been thinking about lately.

In my opinion, Sum 41 has always been great with knowing how to end an album. When I first listened to 13 Voices and heard Twisted By Design, I was blown away. It was jam-packed with so much emotion, I immediately fell in love with it and thought it was the best album closer the band had ever made. Now with OID, Catching Fire is right up there with Twisted. I'm having trouble picking the one I think is the better closer because they're both downright amazing.

Thoughts?

Guilty, been way too lazy to give any input here lately. :sosad:

Comparing the songs, I prefer Catching Fire. The message and the lyrics go straight to my feels. One of the most emotional Sum-songs for me, the only song that can compare with Crash.

But Twisted By Design is definitely the best album closer they've had. The powerful up-and-down journey throughout the song, and the message to say that Deryck has won his battle is definitely something that left me feeling uplifted and glad.

Wow, never thought of it like that. Very good and interesting point.

I feel exactly the same. I especially love the outro because Deryck's lyrical genius is absolutely stunning: "In some ways I've changed and I've left it all behind/But I can't change the way that I'm, I'm twisted by design". It's such a beautiful way of saying "Even though I've made some mistakes in the past and am better now, I still am who I am and I'm ok with that."

Just like Tomi said. Catching Fire is the better song, but Twisted By Design is the better album closer :)
