Tonight we burn out bright
Mi Scusi? You bashed Enter Shikari for this? Granted the whole 'We're all screwed, let's make an album about it' thing has been around forever, but I give ES kudos for doing their own thing around it. At least they have the balls to try to carry themes like that in what they know is a very upbeat genre not famed for great political talk.

I bashed Enter Shikari for their horribly forced English vocals which sound more like the Streets. I actually quite like Common Dreads, but the new vocals he seems so fond of are incredibly tacky and forced. I made no criticism at all about their political statements, or their style of music. Please take the time to fully read what I say rather than just complain about it.

86% is abit high for this don't you think? Perhaps i've grown out of this whole "pop punk" thing but i find this album is a solid set of songs. Nothing more nothing less. Kudos on giving British bands more exposure, hopefully some reviews of Frank Turner and The King Blues will turn up in the coming weeks hint hint.

Knows the words to 'Bye Bye Bye'
"Saturday" & "Church Tongue" are some nice pop punk tracks I must say.

Vocals, Lyrics, and Creativity are too high IMO.
Was there any standout lines at all to deserve that kind of score?
I don't see how better/different his voice are from other "pop punk" bands to deserve that score either.

this album showed what these guys could go on to achieve
