Perhaps it's wise to add that to your synopsis of the CD, seeing as of how your opinion may give the people reading this thread that Allister's new album actually sucks when it's really your taste in music that's changed. Believe it or not, if people interested in the new Allister album come into this thread and leave after reading ill-thought out comments like yours with the feeling that they won't check out the album because people seem to generally think it's a bad album, the band actually loses potential album sales. Stop making blanket statements and consider the influence your words may have on people who may want to hear some classic pop-punk.
It's a GOOD pop-punk album, people.
I guess I kind of feel bad because Allister used to be my favorite "going to the beach/at the beach" music when I was younger. The new CD isn't anything really different from what they had ever done. I just am not into it. But for anyone that is in love with them or loves that style of pop punk then yes, it would be a good listen.
