Sound — 10
This album shows a HUGE improvement from their past efforts. It mighta been adding Travis to the band, it might've been Tom's voice changing some, I dunno what it is but it just makes the sound on this album awesome. Definitely some of Blink's best sound.

These lyrics are just flat out awesome...I memorized this whole CD within about 2 weeks of getting it...that's how much I listened to it. None of the songs on here are really considered "jokes", which is definitely fine by me. The Lyrics to "Adam's Song" are truly amazing and have defeinately helped me through some rough times. Easily a 5.
Overall Impression — 10
All together, this is one of the ebst Blink albums out there, most people think that this is the best one. This album and Green Day's "Dookie" pretty much singlehandedly revived the whole poppunk genre. Definitely a must have for anyone...I know metalheads, rappers, and just about everyone else that listens to this. It's pretty much the perfect album. The best songs = all of them...
