it takes really good pop punk to get me hooked these days. this album might be my favorite pop punk release of the year besides Half Hearted Hero. fantastic vocals, catchy riffs, no filler.

You should really listen to On My Honor - I Never Deserve The Things I Need if you think there haven't been very many good Pop-Punk albums out this year, it's a very solid album all the way through. My favorite of the year by far even over TWY.

I thought The Wonder Years, TSSF, Man Overboard, Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, Fireworks and these all released solid material this year. Pop-punk is still going strong.

Fireworks didn't release anything this year.

The only thing that really sets this album apart for me in any way is Derek's voice. He's top notch as far as Pop-Punk goes. Still, it's a replay-able listen.

Very much enjoy this album. In the running for top spot in the pop-punk genre.

Hmm alright, I was just curious haha.

They definitely cut some of the more pop-punk leaning stuff for a simpler alt pop-rock sound. I'm really curious what the general response to it will be.

Veara's album is awful. Save Rock and Roll is pop - not pop punk. Man Overboard's new album was really boring. Put Yourself Back Together is an EP not an album - and it was pretty forgettable. ALFW is not out yet. Can't get into Mixtapes' singer's voice. Never heard of Firestarter, Save Your Breath, or Knuckle Puck.
you'd like that knuckle puck EP i think

Been listening to this album lately and you can tell Klein definitely put an emphasis on chorusses, which is awesome!

Stand out tracks:
Prepared to Be Noticed
Over the Line
Mind Bottled
Hard to Please

Only criticism I can make is the re-recording of the Overslept tracks. Not too much a fan of them, yet again I'm not a fan of re-recorded tracks anyways.

I only got through a few songs from the new AL4W album which really bums me out. No Sanctuary is still a regular listen though.

Yeah it's rad. It's regular ol pop punk but the hooks are good and the angst is tolerable
