I feel like the quality of songwriting degrades through each release, Live Life Loud didn't last very long for me though I'm still eager to hear this. Smile It's The End of the World was a fantastic album.
Agreed, their only good one, and boy was it ever good.
I hate the fact that all their songs are written by/with other people. I realize there are a lot of artists that do this, but part of the whole "band" thing for me is seeing what that certain group of people can come up with together.
