On Blink 182's first 2 albums, Cheshire Cat and Dude Ranch, They were classified as pop punk really, but after this album they are now a punk rock band. It is rally an impressive album, all the songs are great and you wont get bored in a hurry. They have matured alot and there sound has really improved. There 4 secret tracks at the end of the album are hilarious but you will have to buy the album to find out more bout them. There is an obvious sound of Green Day in a couple of the songs, so if your a Green Day fan, you'll love this album. There are some great guitar riffs on here that are easy to play so if you play guitar, this album is worth buying. Mark's bass lines are pretty samey, there's nothing like Carousel on here. Travis has really improved, he is an amazing drummer as you will see on this album.

Overall Impression — 10
Like I said before if your a Green Day fan, you will like this album, even if you're not you will like this album. The best songs on here are First Date, Stay Together For The Kids, Reckless Abandon and Please Take Me Home. If it was lost I wouldn't buy another but that's only cause I have it on my computer, but I would try and get another copy if I lost it all.
