I read all the other people's reviews on this album and most of them are very funny but also true. Being a fan of SP myself I must admit that they are not the type of band for every1 and usually get a kicking from non-fan holders. But I find it plausable. The sound itself is very similar to other new age punk rock bands arised like Blink and Good Charlotte, and they would fit in. I enjoyed the album. And was glad to find that they still stuck to their original style of playing from their first album.

Firstly I must admit, Pierre's voice is whiney and sounds sad to the majority of people. The lyrics do lean towards the genre of pop/punk artists which are influenced by relationships like breaking up and problems at home. Again non-fans would hate the lyrics and think it to be pathetic, SP fans on the other hand would appreciate some of the sympathetic songs like untitled or crazy, also if u were more into the faster up beat songs, songs like shut up and jump the lyrics would get any SP fan jumping.
Overall Impression — 8
What I liked about this album was because it falls within my favourite music genre of punk rock. Also I think it can be on par with other great punk rock bands as Blink and Good Charlotte. For SP fans I wud think that they would also agree that this album is as/more successful than their first which was also a great listen to. But for non-fans and SP haters they would just simply hate the notion of SP themselves.
