I have only listened to this cd a couple times, and that was 2 times too many. I was a pretty big Blink fan before I heard this cd. I don't care about whether they are punk rock or not (they're not) as long as the music is good. I used to think the music is good. I don't mind stupid lyrics and untalented musicians (Travis is good) as long as the songs are infectious and amusing. However, I guess the boys got tired of being called un-talented and got tired of hearing how much they sucked live, and have tried very hard to become "artists." Bad idea. This cd is so bad. I really can't understand how it's popular. It's slow, annoying, not catchy. And there is a long part where a girl reads a letter out loud, to no kind of rhythm or anything, it's just talking. Now who in their right mind could call that music, and even more, enjoy it?! Wow. Please, go back to your old style of music, good lord.
