Loved this album. I'm totally a kool-aid drinker for this band now. Amazing.

Just bought it on amazon. And also 94%? I'm a huge fan but...it's just a pop-punk album. A good one at that. But c'mon.

Well written though.

Review is excellent and I agree with pretty much all of it.

What's with people thinking pop-punk can't be as good or legit as any other genre? This record (and a lot of other pop-punk records for that matter) are a hell of a lot more genuine than most indie-hipster shit out there.

I'm pretty sure this will be my AOTY which is crazy to say now. I don't think a record has ever hit me as hard as this one has.

Exactly. I wish more people realized this.

why do you say it's just a pop punk album. I hate how pop punk gets dismissed as low quality music because of the genre. Some of the best pop punk albums shit all over some god awful indie rock band efforts, but they're dismissed essentially because the fall into the genre of pop punk. Alternatively indie bands get astounding reviews because for some reason indie is considered better quality than pop punk. I call bullshit!

If there was ever a reason for me to never listen to this record again, it was this review.

Couldn't agree more. I don't know if anything's going to take down this album. This is the album that I'll be talking about when I say "that album came out my senior year in high school and changed my life..." the way my calc teacher talks about Jane Doe.
