We The Kings only got worst but had a fantastic debut. Boys Like Girls are definitely poppy but their s/t beat this in a heart beat. Not complaining just saying in terms of production and artistic quality 'Whatever' can't touch both of these groups self title. I would even argue Smile Kid>Whatever. Though it seems to be on par with Sunshine State of Mind. That album had just as crappy songwriting.
I thought SSOM was shitty because there was nothing fun about it. Nothing memorable, nothing catchy, just boring the entire time unlike their previous albums. But every song here is catchy as shit and can't get'em out of my head, so that's why I like it.
