Jack's Mannequin - The Glass Passenger

Disclaimer: This is essentially an indie-pop album. To be honest, I was never a big Jack's Mannequin fan, but I'll admit, there's something catchy about this album. With this release, Andrew McMahon has tightened up the songwriting, expanding his choruses, and added a dose of pop that surprisingly isn't TOO overwhelming. The album itself keeps a solid rhythm and pace, never really slowing down (save for "Hammers and Strings"). Some of you won't like this for the pop factor, but I've already warned you of that, so if you want to try it, by all means...
