Big Bad World

Album: Big Bad World (2008)


  • Plain White Ts recorded Bag Bad World live without a click track. Additionally they only used gear or instruments made before 1970: vintage guitars, old Vox amps and Leslie speakers, a Ludwig drum set circa 1966. Singer/songwriter Tom Higgenson explained on the band's MySpace site: "We tried to be really ambitious and not worry about people's expectations for this record. Our vision was to do it in a classic way."

  • Nicollette from San Fernando, Trinidad And TobagoBIg Disappointment Plain White T's!! This new album is bulls**t.The 1970's sound thing is just not working for people who live in 2008. Get real! Hey there Delilah was your best song so far. I thought you were a puk rock band and how the hell did you get in the entertainment industry? i really don't know.New old music sucks big time!!!!!!!!! Try listening to Flyleaf or GReenday and take an example! Now that's what you call real rock!
