I think the reason Blake wrote the review like this is we all know this album is great. There's no need to write about what we already know, he focused more on his opinion of what the album actually means. I loved the review as well as the album. It's not that serious, this is AbsolutePunk not New York Times.
AP.net reviews are more reliable than pretty much most mainstream publications out there. I mean when Rolling Stone gives the jonas brothers 5 stars and the best thrice album 2.5, you know there's something wrong. Plus instead of actually reviewing music, all they try to do is be snarky.

I definitely enjoy the album and the bands sound has without a doubt matured but i still feel that Reach for the Sun is a better album, can't do an album twice though. None the less still a solid sophomore album. After the first few listens my favorite song thus far is In my room.

The review is absolutely amazing, the ablum is perfect

I Should Leave Right Now and In My Room are my favorites

full versions of Siren and No One's Gonna Need You More are awesome, NOGNYM sounds like a ton of fun to play with a full band

NOOOOOOOOOO!
War Paint on Vinyl already SOLD OUT!
If I mail Hopeless my tears in a jar will they press more?
Oh, and REACH FOR THE SUN was my favorite album of its release year.
WAR PAINT is AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER.
LOVE IT.

I'm an old man. My little cousin introduced me to these guys last summer. They are the first "new" band that I have listened to and absolutely LOVED in a very long time. I am waiting with baited breath to hear the new record.

Blake is such a great writer. It's a joy to read anything he does. His review is what swayed me to buy Reach for the Sun.

I'm waiting until my pre-order comes before listening to anything, but I'm really excited. Reach for the Sun was as great as many people here said it was.

Didn't realize there was a review for this up already. I was out of the country when you posted this, Blake. Nice review. Finally listened to the album for the first time yesterday, and was impressed!

You need to write more, Blake.

With that being said, this album was honestly a bore. I thought it'd be a grower, but it turned out to be the opposite. I'm still spinning out Reach For The Sun, every now and then.
