This album has its flaws, but who could expect perfection after the master stroke that was 2014's "Transgender Dysphoria Blues?" What's surprising is that, despite the pressures inherent in following up such a lauded comeback, Laura Jane Grace managed to pen a handful of solid pop tunes that provide a logical stylistic progression to Against Me! and their fans.
"Shape Shift With Me" is an apt title for this album. It feels like a journey and the moods of the songs are rarely stagnant. After a strong, albeit slow start in comparison to AM!'s best material, "Crash" grabs the listener with an unexpected dose of flanger-drenched new wave. The following three songs, "Delicate, Petite, and Other Things I'll Never Be," "333," and "Haunting, Haunted Haunts" make up the centerpiece of the album, and are easily the catchiest block of songs Against Me! have ever recorded. "Dead Rats" is an eerily rollicking track and "Rebecca" sounds like a poppier incarnation of the band's early days. The final three songs aren't bad, but they cause the end of "Shape Shift With Me" to sag a bit. Again, this album isn't perfect, but it's predecessor was, and this one has enough shining moments to make me enthusiastic about what will come next.
