Sound — 8
This album, like 'Still Not Getting Any...' has a different tune, beat and sound for each song. From the fast rock of ' I'd do anything ' to the slow but just as good ' Perfect', Simple Plan has produced a great album. Great job they have done.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics of the album, like their second album, Still Not Getting Any..., is mostly describing the lives of some kids, especially teenagers. Take for example, the song 'Perfect'. It is about a child telling his dad that he sorry, no matter how hard he tries, he can't be perfect, like the way his dad wants him to be. It can also be applied to our lives today. For some kids, their parents always want them to get the best. Anything less is not acceptable. This results in the kids experiencing too much pressure and not being able to take it. The songs 'I'd do anything' and ' Addicted' talks about a guy being deeply in love a girl and would do anything to have her again. The song 'I'm just a kid' talks about everyone being able to fit in perfectly and you are the only one left out and you are complaining that your life is a nightmare.
Overall Impression — 8
As usual, when I compare this album with others, people say that it is not a great album, just another album. Nothing special about it. But in my eyes, this album is one of the best ones I have ever known because not only dose each song have a different tune, it also speaks truly of a teenagers life. If it was lost/stolen, I would most definitely buy it back.
