Sound: The guitar parts, bass parts and drum parts on this album are quite fast, compared to most other ataris albums. So fast, that most of the 21 songs only last about 1 and a half minutes each. 'Four chord wonder' is probably the best song as it has a nice bass riff at the beginning, a catchy solo near the end and a dig at punk bands who use four chord progressions. // 8

Lyrics: Kris Roe really is a great song writer, and people like his stuff. The lyrics are fast on most of the songs and are catchy. // 10

Overall Impression: I bought this album because it was 21 songs for 11.99 and I had all the other ataris albums. You won't find sick riffs or extreme solos in this album; just nice fast songs that flow into each other nicely and are a good combination of punk guitar playing and great song writing. 'Boxcar' sounds very similar to 'Motivation' by 'Sum 41' - I think they were written at the same time though so no one is to blame. This album is great! Buy it! // 10
