Hey Thomas - You say "Common Courtesy is an easy step up from its predecessor, What Separates Me From You"... but you gave that album a 7.5. Which is higher than the 7 you gave Common Courtesy. That doesn't add up.

... granted I've only listened to CC a couple times thus far, but I feel WSMFY is a better album.

Albums age differently with different people...I believe I read something similar regarding his review of Neighborhoods. Initial feelings towards a record or band can change with anyone.

did you read the review? Thomas does a pretty good job of explaining why he gave it a 7.
Yea I understand his opinion but I still think it deserves more than a 7. But I am a hardcore ADTR fan and i have been waiting for 3 years so yea. But I do love this album a lot

Gotta say this band does the pop-punk/pop thing pretty well.

He gave it a 7 at first but went on to say in his end of the year list that he overrated it and it was all but unlistenable at that point.

16 year old skateboarding pop punk me is enraged with the low and incomprehensible 7/10 rating.

21 year old me accepts the review and the album for what it is, a decent blend of two genres. Probably their best work yet though, with that being said.

this is probably their best record as a band and fans of FTWHH will adore this. I know I do.
FTWHH will always be their best imo.

yeah i mean that was three years ago – i just don't have the same tastes i used to. i will admit to rating that album much higher than i should have because i used to have a soft spot for the band (this happened to me with a few reviews back a few years ago). in hindsight i'd give that record like a 5

It wasn't that. It was me admitting that while I'm not a personal fan of the album, I can see that it's great for what it is.

Bro, can't wait to pick up the CD from Best Buy and blast it in my souped-up ten year old used Honda.

This is really good. I definitely prefer the pop punk songs more than the heavy songs. Some of the choruses on this are huge.
