This is an all around great album. It really shows how good the have gotten over the years. This isn't just fun rock anymore, it's fun rock with all the elements of a great rock n roll band. Allison Robertson's tone is great on the record too.

Overall Impression — 10
This is album shows that there is influence from AC/DC to the Stones, but there is also a great amount of originality in it. The riffs, the lyrics, the basslines, and the drum beats are all absolutely amazing. There is nothing to hate about this record, but lots to love about it. It is defeinitly the best album of 2004. This is a great album to own, so go get it!
