This is their debut album. The first thing you should know is that that the bassist (Mark Hoppus) and the drummer (Travis Barker) are the guys from Blink 182, so you know this is gonna be good. The CD is a mix of Pop-punk and rock and they pull it off. Their are a few songs which take a bit for it to reach its potential but when they do they rock solid. They pull off a good beat with the drum kit which can be hip-hopish to the Blink 182 style. There are two guitarist and how else can I say this, they play awesome music.

Some of the lines need a bit of work but just one or two so when you look at the whole album it doesn't really matter. Mark (the lead vocalist) will go on about the stuff everyone goes on about e.g.: having fun times, stealing crap, how he feels about a chick but in the song "No It Isn't" he sings about his old band-mate Tom Delonge which you should look out for. He can sing can keep in tune by the way.
Overall Impression — 9
They have so many stand out songs I would feel stupid to name them all, but nearly every song could easily be a hit. I love the way they put their music together. Some songs are quite original but I don't like it when it takes a while to get into but all in all it's a great album and I would defiantly buy it again if it was lost or stolen. But it yourself and check it out.
