It's good to see a positive review for this album. As much as people like to hate on Delonge, I thought this was one of the best records of '06 (the follow-up disappointed big time). A matter of contention, I seem to recall "Do It for Me Now" being the second single, not "It Hurts." Also, even though it wasn't mentioned, "A Little's Enough" was my favorite song on the album, and more than that, one of my favorite all-time songs.

Well thank you for the compliment. You probably are right about "Do It For Me Now" as the second single, rather than "It Hurts." And I as well was disappointed on the follow-up, but I thought they had some good songs on that album.

I wonder what the overall opinion of AVA would be if Delonge hadn't left blink to start it. People mostly hate AVA cause they hate Tom.
This happens to be one of my all time favorite albums. Nice review.

Dope fucking album and besides It Hurts every song is great.No matter how much shit AVA gets they will always be better than that terrible watered down Blink knockoff called +44. Out of everything Tom Delonge has done this album has the most lasting value for me

How is +44 a watered down blink knockoff? It's an amazing album full of emotion. I don't see how people can like blink and still hate either of these bands now that blink is back together.

It's a complete step down from the S/T and has ZERO lasting value.

Besides the S/T, which I recently fell I love with after hating it for 5 years, I strictly listen to Blink for nostalgia and could give a fuck less that they reunited. I'll take AVA over Blink anyday

Its not a step down from the S/T because its not even in the same vein as the S/T. It's totally different. And just because it's totally different than AVA or blink doesn't make it horrible. Mark poured out everything he had into this album and it shows. Lyrically it's great (depressing, but great.) Travis's drumming shines (like always). Can you seriously listen to a song like Weatherman and tell me its not doing it for you?

Most def

I don't normally hate on people like this but I just checked your profile and you have awful taste in music. That pretty much explains your views.

I'll admit, I listen to some questionable stuff. But how is yours any better? Seriously.
And way to chicken out.

I think that +44 are atrocious. Are you so fucking dense you can't understand that?
I understand that you don't like +44. Thats easy. I just don't understand why.

I think if an individual feels trapped in something they don’t believe in, it can take its toll and drag them down into a deep dark place. I guess the negativity from fans is to be expected. I have seen it with a few guys who have decided to move onto other projects and it is a shame people can’t give them support rather than stick them on a cross and crucify.

I didn’t know the history behind the band and that the guy came from Blink182. All I know is I love the album and the review above is great.

This album did so much for me when it was first released. I'd say as a whole though I like I-Empire better. I look forward to Love. Tom never disappoints musically.

I like both albums very much. WDNTW is definitely a great album. I wish you had talked about "Do It For Me Now", that's one of my favorite tracks

MEEEE TOO!

along with this i must say out of the 2 that AVA released it's my favorite album, just everything in general is sooo much better.

i love blink tho and always will, pop punk was redefined by them and is grown to love from bands like all time low and a day to remember.

+44 was a great band but really i dont think that mark was truly dedicated in it which was sad because i did passionately love seeing him in this band.

the review was a little off tho i thot not to be stubborn, good detail, but not particularly what i ve thot about this album and oh yeah Muse and +44 have that same ideal in AVA
