Oh wow. I haven't even heard of this band, but the review makes me want to buy this. Especially the last paragraph. And 18 tracks? Whoa. :looking for it on Amazon:

Infiltrate their back catalog now and then get this as well. It's a beautiful album, and this is the best hardcore/punk band in the game.

I do agree that this album is a lot more bright than previous Fucked Up records, and I love that about it. There is such a cheery vibe to it. "Queen of Hearts" is the punk love song to end all love songs, and it has an abrasive Pixies-esque vibe to it, aware of itself yet fully embracing the cheese it conjures up.

The record is lengthy, but the journey to the end is well worth it. The album is eclectic and gorgeous, heavy and poppy.

All in all, it's a bundle of joy.

I just bought this and Chemistry of Common Life mp3s on Amazon. I'll listen to them both when I have time to do nothing but absorb it and soak it all in.

Chemistry is an amazing album too. Son, The Father might be the best album opener I've heard in years.

agreed. such a catalog. I think they just keep getting better. there was part of me that was like "wow, this album makes me feel like if the production on the last record was just a tad bit better," but then I realized that the grittiness of Chemistry is what makes that record.

So glad this got reviewed, and well done on it. I couldn't agree more, a fantastic record. It doesn't even seem taxing to me, I listened to it twice straight yesterday (about 160 minutes of my day) and didn't become bored. And I've yet to try and read the lyrics, follow the story, work out which character is speaking when, etc. So much to like here.

Nice review. This will be the first Fucked Up album I've ever heard. Bought it after hearing The Other Shoe. I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Fantastic album, I was worried about the length but listening all the way through is quite an amazing experience. I've always enjoyed Fucked Up but this album is a masterpiece. AOTY along with No Devolucion.
