I do prefer the WTP record over this one. Still pretty solid, though.

Best pop punk release this year. Crazy hooks on this thing.

You kind of dropped the ball on that RIYL. Those bands probably won't get people to check this out, except for TSSF.

What would you compare them to? I haven't listened to anything by them besides whatever was played in the Warped Tour doc.

This is a lot better to me than the With The Punches and I Call Fives. It's weird though, I'm going to review the I Call Fives and it's kind of the same deal as this album, where a lot of the songs sound the same, I just think this album is much better.

I wouldn't say it's your typical poppy pop-punk album since this album is better than 90-95% of the genre out there

Did you read the review, that's exactly the point I made.

"Contender is your typical poppy pop-punk album, its 10 songs only managing to run the course of 24 minutes ... While bringing nothing new to the table in terms of creativity, Contender is a better execution of this style than any record in at least a couple of years; and with the way this genre works, you can’t ask for more than that."

I just wouldn't have used the word typical.

Just gave this a first spin, really liking it. I think the short songs work really well for their style. Also I love the re-recorded Front Porch Sunrise so much more than the split version.

i'm guessing the "*" was meant to lead to a footnote saying to listen to more than one pop-punk record this summer?

not a fan of any of the riyl bands, but was still planning on checking this out.
I can't stand man overboard, but the rest are so good.
