For how decent you say they are, a 1.5 in reviewer tilt is kind of dumbfounding.
And I agree with most of the review, but not about how the songs blend together. If you can't tell the difference between, let's say, Homecoming, How You Love Me Now, Josey, Hurricane Streets and Arizona, especially after 6 or 7 listens, something is wrong.

Oops that was meant to be a 5.5! Thanks for letting me know it's fixed now.
Oh and I can tell the songs apart, I just kind of forget about them as soon as I finish listening to them

Album is catchy as hell, though "How You Love Me Now" is the only song I really like. I agree with this review.

Nothing ground breaking, special or intelectual here, just a half decent, well produced pop band, with a hot chick as lead singer.

Please stop using the word "punk" to define what genre this band is in. There is nothing punk about this. They're about as punk as Katy Perry is (which is 0.00%).

Hey Monday is a (shitty) POP BAND.

I don't think it's fair to say shitty but yes it is pop music, The punk cred isn't really there.

This is an alright pop record. It's enjoyable enough. And I will definitely check out their next cd.

Other than Homecoming, I can't really stomach anything here. Agree with the Metro Station quip, though. Great review.

Well, Katy Perry is reportedly going out with Benji Madden. If that's not a textbook example of true punk rock, I don't know what the fuck is.

It is a catchy album. Definitely not the kind of stuff I usually listen to, but it's a great album to listen to when you're exercising. The songs are fun and catchy. It's a decent album, nothing special, but definitely catchy :)
