Simple Plan: No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls

Sound — 4
The sound of this album is punk, and more no less. If your into heavier rock or metal, don't get this. Not that I'm saying there is anything wrong with punk, but I personally feel this album really cheapens the image of punk. It does have some good sounds and cathchy riffs on it but as one of the other guy said. It has a really immature fell about it, and most of the songs sound the same.

Lyrics — 6
The lyrics are nothing special. Most of the lyrics are about trivial things, nothing really deep or detailed about it. Again the lyrics are about subjects that would mean something only to a person who has no social life. The singing quality is anything you can expect from a punk-rock band and isn't too bad.

Overall Impression — 4
In my opinion this album has nothing on other kick-ass punk/rock bands such as Green Day, NFG and Blink 182. I would definetly not buy it again. Don't get this album if you are into hard rock and metal.
