Even though their lyrics have always been a weak point, they could make a really good, complete record.


They just... haven't.. for some reason :shrug:

Awesome avatar.

Good. I see no reason to care about this band ever. They will remain on my "do not ever touch" list for eternity. Amen to that.

Has Eli Paperboy Reed set a a release date for that record? I completely dig that release.

Oh, so clever.

fuck you for bringing up their debut right off the bat

The Maine are one of those bands that people will suspect writers of bashing just to bash them

then why even mention the shittest line of their debut if you want readers to hit your review with an open mind? you totally contradicted yourself in the wrap up.

ah well, I heard the Mercy Mercedes album when it leaked weeks ago and it didn't impressed me, at all.

by now I think this is a catchy, quite predictable pop rock record and I like it. I don't mean it's good in general, but it's good for me. Summer-y, short and sweet it's all I need for warm summer days, nothing too meaningful.

Probably I'll stop spinning this record right after summer and I'll start saying "why was I listening to that crap?" and my opinions about The Maine (and this record) will change (as it happened for Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown). NOW I can't stop, won't stop singing along to Inside of You.

MIGHT BE BIASED: cause im a big maine fan, but i enjoyed their progression into a more "mature" sound for this record. i agree with whats stated before about this being the best pop rock record since new sing it loud. both solid releases

Very true statement. Although I did expect to like this more than Believe It, but I don't

i actually like this record more than most songs on Can't Stop Won't Stop.


Although these lyrics manage to be worst than the bad one liners in Eminem's Recovery.

Jake Waltham 07/16/10 03:02 AM

I actually like this album a Lot :P.

Meeze 07/16/10 04:04 AM

I guess I just don't understand how you can score Amber Pacific's new LP much higher than The Maine's. At the very least, both are equally as unoriginal and mediocre.

homicide hearts 07/16/10 04:25 AM

i don't think this album is the best thing in the world, but it's a lot better than you give it credit for. it may not be original but for what it is... a pop rock record... it's really really good.

This band is absolutely awful.
