It doesn't grab my attention like the self titled does, but I still love it.

The first song is awesome. Pretty catchy stuff. Very Ramones-ish sounding.

That was my initial reaction, that the riffs weren't as interesting and stalker jokes weren't as clever, etc. But after a few listens, the album rules. I've been waiting for social justice warriors to rip on this, especially in light of this week's tragedy, but it hasn't happened yet, so... ?

I think it's awesome. Just a few more listens and I'm sure I'll love it even more.

I particularly like that the stalker jokes are turned down, but the general vibe of crime has been turned up a tad. That was something that I was a little bummed about from the transition of the first demos/First Offense to the self-titled. I like the use of the synth on this album. I'm gonna have to give it some more spins.

I think there are maybe fewer stalker jokes, but they are more direct: "you're the one to blame" versus "I get every letter back return to sender," etc. But I'm down either way.

I had a theory that there was one song that got written first as potentially a straightforward song, but then when the crime/stalker vibes were noticed, they decided to make it a theme. It was fun trying to figure out which song had actual meaning beyond the metaphor. But by this album they're obviously sticking close to the theme.
