Sound — 3
The songs are bland at best. Some of them are terrible. Yes, they do rock out in some points, but it doesn't sound any different to any of their previous albums. This is such a pity is probably the only standout track for them doing something a bit different i.e. keyboards. But contrary to what some of these other reviewers think, they have used keyboards before, in Buddy Holly. Most of these people have no idea what they are talking about.

This album is far too whingy. It's like being locked in a room with English people and taking away their tea. The band needs to lighten up. Rivers, get laid.
Overall Impression — 2
I can't tell the difference between most of the songs. If you buy Make Believe after reading this review, you are stupid. Don't bother, even Maladroit was better than this. At least it had some really hard out rock moments. Have you ever bought an album only to realise that you just didn't care? It's probably called Make Beilieve.
