Sum 41 has a more angry tone with the awsome guitar solos. Each song has something different. The acustic melody songs like "slipping Away" and "Some Say." The yelling hard songs like "Bitter End" and "Welcome To Hell." And just about everyting in between. From electric solos from "88," to smooth chords from "Peices." It's got it all.

The new album has songs about whats wrong. Songs such as "We're All To Blame" really speack the truth. The lyrics really match the guitars and such really well. The ryming is superb, with a fast pace to many songs. It's not one of those bands where you just hear loud guitor chords with high-pitched screaming. These guys are some great song writers.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is really great, you got to hear it. If you haven't already, your missing out. I highly suggest buying this album, it's worth every single penny.
