I still don't know why people dislike the selftitled so much, it's my favourite by them. Also, I liked this album about as much as Love Drunk, good but not as good as previous efforts.

I also didn't see what was so bad about it. Of course it was a big step down from Chroma. I think it was an album that people either love or hate, but it did not sell very well. Everyone has different opinions though and I do agree with you about not knowing why people disliked it so much.

I don't even see it as a step down from Chroma, I can see why people would prefer Chroma but I don't know how someone can love Chroma and hate the selftitled.

I found the S/T to be really boring. But this album brought back what I love about the band. Nice review.

this album actually keeps growing on me, which isn't usual in the pop punk genre...

oh and i agree, the self title release was a very solid album, but when you put it up next to chroma its definitely the lesser of the 2. Cycles is an amazing comeback even though I feel like they shouldn't have to win peoples loyalty/respect back. These dudes are too talented!

Chroma was great, Cartel was spotty and mediocre at best, and Cycles is fantastic. They have established a solid sound that fits them well.
