First of all I love this band, but I feel that this release is a bit of a step in the wrong direction. What's with the sci-fi theme? Who are they the Lillingtons now? (2 songs in particular sounded waaay too much like the Lillingtons) I guess they are also going for a tougher sound now which does sound pretty damn good in its own right (listen to Forbidden Planet) but it's not why we love them. They should have wrote more songs like Todayo (the best song on the album) and less songs like Fatso Goes Nutzoid. Maybe they should have taken a little more time with this one, but who am I to say? Overall I do like this album alot, just a bit different, maybe it has something to do with the new label, who knows. Best songs are Skate or Die and Todayo.
And I thought their previous stuff was good. This album is damn near perfect. The quality of the songwriting is superb and the delivery is even better. The hooks are sooo sweet. I bought this album along with the new Teenage bottlerocket and the new Riverdales (2 of the best poppunk bands out there right?) and this CD blew them both away! One word that could describe this album is Brilliant. This is the kind of music that makes you smile, the way music should be.
