for me, this is without a doubt a huge leap in their sound and appeal. maybe it was that joke album that came out with eotwn or maybe when i saw them spit into each others mouths on that wonder years tour last year, but i could not stand this band for the longest time. i am happy to say that this record has been a pleasant surprise. i find the toning down of the pop punk irony to be the best step this band could have taken.
