Sound — 10
This is definitely their best album to date for many reasons.For one,the set themselves apart from the rest of todays punk bands with a new metal sound.The guitar riffs are amazing and you wouldnt expect them from "just another pop punk band."
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this album are much darker and take on weightier subject matter than All Killer No Filler or Half Hour of Power."Still Waiting" is a song about hate in the world and the war."No Brains" is about a former band member that quit and it is very angry. "Mr. Amsterdam" is about a man who hates everything. This is a pretty big departure from the first album that had lyrics about sleeping late and hanging out with friends.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall,this is one of the best releases of 2002 and one of my most played CD's. People who did not like the first album because they thought it was poppy should check this out. It is great!
