If you wanna sit down and be philosophic, deep and thoughtful, this album is NOT what you should use. It is an album with straight ahead happy modern rock/punk/pop/ska with fat refrains and a good solid production. The guys who?s been around since 1992 (yepp it?s true) have a very strong following. If you look at myspace ? they have more than 1 million hits so far which is impressing. And this is a cool album, but it is not a classic one. It?s far from that in my ears, but they have their own touch compared to the ?typical? happypunk of America sound? that are all and they are also really good songwriters AND as I said earlier ? it?s nothing wrong with the energy - even if the guys are getting old believe it or not.
