Great Review. All i see on this site is people complaining about his voice, and simply the band. i don't think they gave this band much of a listen. Your review knocked the nail right on the head. Personally, Dirtier Than You Want To Know is the only song you named that I really enjoyed, the album is really catchy. Personally I found Southern Lovin to be the catchiest track i've heard in a long time, and Internet Killed The Video Star does not trail behind too far.
Ok i fibbed, Beat The Devil is a sic catchy song.

Stills seems to be hitting higher notes on this album. I still prefer In Vogue because it was so crazy, and his scream sounded just so unique. The Hot N' Heavy's screams sound very similar to that of Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath (atleast when he gets those low screams)- Not saying that's a bad thing, just In Vogue he had his own unique style that I was so fond of.

Still, great album,(no pun) it's my favorite in the genre that has fallen to waste.
Again, great review.

I've never been a fan of this band. The screamer sounds like he's 10.

I'll give you a reason. People constantly bitch about The Devil Wears Prada, a band with talent, and far less people bitch about DDG, an overtly cliche band with a vocalist(as said by Marie) who sounds like a 10 year old throwing a temper tantrum.

Is that good enough?

So you don't like TDWP, yet you like Drop Dead, Gorgeous?

Oh, From First to last should never be compared to Alexisonfire or From Autumn to Ashes.

maybe you should learn to read, because i said tdwp is amazing. I love them. i like dd,g. like being the operative word. Also, I said that FATA and Alexisonfire were different than FFTL because they strayed from the Saosin-esque/Escape The Fate salable formula of having heavier songs being balanced out by angsty ballads like Emily.

Well, given what you said afterwards, I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic.
