There were moments on this album where Justin's vocals sounded more raw and natural as well. Slightly off key, but it wasn't a bad thing. Even If It Kills Me was way to polished for me, and this was a great step back in the right direction. Nice review too, man.

I love this album. EIIKM was nice, but this has more of an older sound to it. And old MCS is good MCS

This and EIIKM are easily their best albums. The other albums have some better songs, but they don't feel 'complete'.

No way. "Commit This to Memory" for the easy win.

" if you enjoyed Even If It Kills Me, then you'll love My Dinosaur Life."

Really? My Dinosaur Life sounds nothing like Even If It Kills Me. I'm not going to say I hated EIIKM, but I wasn't it's biggest supporter. My Dinosaur Life is the album that should have followed up Commit This To Memory.

This album is a growth from CTTM because Mark Hoppus worked on both albums. EIIKM was a good album, but MDL was the next logical step for this band. They even said they wanted a darker, more rock version of CTTM and used Hoppus to achieve that

Nice review. Could have used some negative points though.
And History Lesson is hardly a standout track for most people.

I can't stop listening to "My Dinosaur Life!" I love "Pulp Fiction," but it is definitely hard to pick a favorite song. Still a huge fan of "I Am the Movie." :)

honestly i think that "Worker Bee" is one of the most raw, emotional and best songs MCS have ever written. by far their best opener.

love this album more with each listen.
