Big fan of their EP's but this seems watered down to me... I'll give it another try but it seems uninspired.

this review is ace.

"Truth be told, I feel like every compliment I give these guys is supposed to have some sort of backhanded insult. It's not Neck Deep's fault people deride the genre, and it's not really my job to save it. But just because it's pop-punk and it's simple and it's angry, we're supposed to connect in secret."

that really nails everything.

totes, it's a genre that is just better in EP format. But this one is pretty good. Repetitive like all these albums, but still a lot of fun to bop along to.
I actually just listened again and it deifnitely stuck with me this time especially because multiple parts of the record have been stuck in my head all class lol

This review is great. Sums up my feelings about the album and pop-punk in general.

I think a lot of people's "bashing" of this genre all has to do with their own expectations. If you went into this album expecting it reinvent the genre, you are going to be sorely disappointed with this and most other pop punk releases these days... and there is absolutely nothing wrong with having those expectations or wanting something different. For me personally, I still enjoy catchy pop songs with power chords about girls, so I definitely enjoy this album.

I didn't like this on my first two listens, I like their EP's though.

This tends to happen a lot with pop punk bands that release EP's before their full length. I feel like they just rarely can do what they did on their EP on a full length

But I'm gonna check this out a couple more times maybe it will grow on me! Good review
I agree. In all honesty don't think this band was ready to put out a full length, having repetitive songs is somewhat okay on an EP but when I have trouble figuring out the differences between 12 songs in a row it's much more noticeable.

Admittedly I'm not a fan of this band but I don't hate them either, just kind of indifferent. Overall wasn't a bad album, but nothing special either, it really just made me want to put on The Story So Far instead.

This was definitely a pleasant surprise. I wouldn't say it's as solid as similar acts (Story So Far, State Champs, Fireworks) but it's still a very fun listen.
