This band just won’t quit. Jack’s Mannequin released the first single from their upcoming album, “The Glass Passenger,” on their MySpace page today.
The single isn’t “Miss California,” good, but it isn’t bad either. The brief introduction feels a bit melodramatic but as a whole, the song seems to indicate that the band is maturing without losing their signature sound. “Resolution” seems to be more of a mass-appeal song (hence its release as a single) that likely won’t be a hit among JM and McMahon devotees. But I’m still very optimistic about this upcoming album – so optimistic in fact that I sold out and bought the expensive “Traditional” preorder package.
Expect full coverage surrounding the sophomore album’s release on September 30th.
