Great album. The first song titled "Underclass Hero" was actually a demo bonus track to the 2004 album Chuck. "Subject To Change" sound familiar to anyone? "Underclass Hero is a way that Deryck's inner-feeling was shown musically," says drummer, Stevo. Songs like Walking Disaster, and Dear Father, describe Deryck's (Biz's) emotion towards his father and mother. Underclass Hero, and March of the Dogs, are two songs that describe how DW (Deryck Whibley) feels towards politics, and other things that address Government. The rest of the songs are like what they used to do. The song doesn't feature multiple genre's like Chuck did. Dave Brownsound leaves the Sum 41 crew and is replaced by a touring guitarist. This simply means that the touring guitarist will not be featured in music videos, commercials, or other types of cinemas recorded by the band.

01. Underclass Hero - Address' Deryck Whibley's feeling toward politice and it's a great CD intro too. The title track so that's cool as well. Buy it by itself if you have to. 02. Walking Disaster - the second single off of the album. He talks about being an outcast right here and all the bad things he's been put through on this track. 03. Speak Of The Devil - this song has a bad melody part going into the chorus it's off-key. Get this song only with the album if you ask me. 04. Dear Father - great song no two ways about it! You have got to get this song when you can work up a dollar! The highest recommended track off of the whole CD. 05. Count Your Last Blessings - this is the third single from Underclass Hero if I'm not mistaken, I love it. 06. Ma Poubelle - you have to know french to understand this song but it is about talking so much trash about his mother. 07. March Of The Dogs - address' the politics deal again. 08. The Jester - I have no idea what this song is talking about. 09. With Me - really good song but the end takes too long. I would recommend this song but you have to reset the track so you don't have to wait like 30 seconds. 10. Pull The Curtain - the post-chorus is the best part of this song "The only and only day has come, I pay for all the bad things I've done" everyone should accept Christ in other words. 11. King Of Contradiction - not long enough, but still I love it, it's the hardest Punk Song on the CD I recommend buying this one alone if you don't have the money for the CD. I love it so much. You can get it for a small 99c off iTunes, why don't you get it? 12. Best Of Me - a little too much alike With Me 3/5. I would much rather get With Me instead. 13. Confusion And Frustration In Modern Times - love this song so much if you listen to it you're going to keep listening to it for a while. You'll lose track of time. 14. So Long Goodbye - great ending song. All Sum 41's CD's end with a good acoustic song. I love it and I recommend getting this song from iTunes or buy the CD for it. 15. Untitled - Not the best song, that's all there is to it.
Overall Impression — 10
Unlike other albums by Sum 41 that seem plagairized from songs like: System Of A Down, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, and more, this song doesn't have too much copying in it. Listen to The Hell Song by Sum 41, then listen to The Pros and Cons of Breathing by Fall Out Boy, and you'll see some plagirism.
