77 percent? I'm sorry but I strongly disagree! I think this album is just...awful.

Anyway nice review!

As a huge fan of the last record, this one is proving pretty difficult for me to get into. After reading this review though, I might try one more time. Sometimes it just takes couple tries.

The voice just does not belong with the music.

I don't know. It just feels like this isn't a pop-punk voice.

What about this album made you put Eve 6's Horrorscope as a RIYL? Horroscope is one of my all time favorite albums, so any similarity to that would really make me want to check this out.

not a fan of their new cd.... where is the passion?? there is hardley any ground breaking guitar solos. the cd sounds too familiar and poppy. there is no "umpf" like I'd Hate To Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About.

its a good cd but i think the lyrics are significantly worse than their last album, and a lot of the songs just feel sort of.. empty.

Im really digging the new guitar players work though

This is scored unbelievably high. Review was alright, and the RIYL's were fairly off base. All of those albums are miles beyond what this release is. I don't even see a comparison.

Yeah I think the album is lifeless...the sound is just tired. I wish they would have just tried something new. They could have wrote a creative pop rock album. I just wish in the pre production stages bands would be like; let's avoid cliches on this album!! No talking about some girl or getting out of this town... It's been done to death! They need to become self-aware...

Try new things!! I'm not saying turn into Brand New but come on!!!

I'm actually a fan of their previous album. But I just heard some of the MySpace songs and I don't like what I hear.
