I haven't seen all the lyrics for this record yet (I know know what I've caught onto from listening), but as far as how I like it based off my first 7-8 listens (I downloaded it two days ago), I think it is a very strong pop-punk record. It's exactly what I look for in this genre.

It's super catchy and I'm actually a fan of how short the record is. Rather than drag out these songs with too many repeated choruses and unnecessary nonsense, they go straight to the point and keep it simple.

Every song seems very strong other than the opener, but the real bulk and life of this album is easily from The Office to Contender. Each one of those six songs just grab me to go and listen again immediately after.

Such an awesome album. Lyrics are so good and really go into what the band has been through, angst, love, friendship and much more. It's really catchy and just what I look for in a pop-punk record. I love this band, and cannot wait for my pre-order bundle. I ordered last week but hopefully it comes sometime soon!

I love it. The hype surrounding it made it hard at first for me to get into it but then it just clicked because it's simply a great album. It's pretty much the definition of quality over quanity.

I've been waiting to listen to this until it comes out, but I think I may give it a listen today, because I've heard some pretty great things about it.

Cool pop-punk record. Very few cool pop-punk records have come out this year so this is a treat.

Hope Handguns can follow suit.

Anyone besides me really like the original version of Front Porch Sunrise better? I mean I liked what they did with the guitars, but I thought the vocal delivery on the split was a lot stronger.

Will probably pick this up to support Pure Noise, but I'm confident. Will listen later.
