It's a testament to Taking Back Sunday's talent that the Rockville Centre-based band can turn essentially a transition album into something that sounds this good. "Taking Back Sunday" (Warner Bros.) is filled with all sorts of styles -- the hard-rocking "El Paso," the pop-tastic "Faith (When I Let You Down)," the nod to their emo past "Best Places to Be a Mom," a look at a potential R.E.M.-like future in "Sad Savior" and the touching ballad "Call Me in the Morning" -- all handled well.
