I think the first and second are on the same level. Both of them were awesome. 3rd not so much, though.
Agreed. The first two are quite a bit different from each other but I enjoyed them equally. The third one had a few decent songs on it but none of it really stood out or had lasting value with me. I'm still excited to give this a listen.
It's almost unanimous in regards to III being the least likeable album. I have to agree. The first two were very impressive; pretty much grew up on those records. III was just a disappointment. Nothing stood out.
^ And yeah they should have gone with the Anti-Flag version on the album.
