Product Description

Amazon.ca

Pop punk: "because there is no fourth chord". It’s an ethos that’s served their forefathers well and Sum 41’s 2000 debut Half Hour of Power, sticks firmly to this frantic fretboard formula.

Their hugely successful All Killer No Filler album was recorded only two months after this--to say that they are cut from the same cloth is an understatement, but not necessarily a bad thing. What they lack in the assured canniness that Blink 182 occasionally produce (dirty jokes aside of course) they make up for with catchy riffs and a fine line in pre-pubescent white-boy rap--so much so that you’d think The Offspring aimed "Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)" at them.

"Makes No Difference" is as close to the brilliance of "Fat Lip" as it gets here, but the breezy "Summer" keeps the adrenaline pumping where the tunes falls short (and a catchy hookline is essential for songs like these to succeed).

Their delinquency is reminiscent of Ash’s 1977 (with similar photo album booklets), but where Tim Wheeler wrote "Girl From Mars", "Bizzy" has written "Dave’s Possessed Hair" with the lyrics "You say you’re a pacifist/Instead you wave your fist." Close, but no Harry Winterman cigar. Quintessential casualties of middle-brow, white-collar, suburban society, this is 30 minutes of power but only 15 minutes of tunes.

Good enough for what it achieved but it’s hard to see if they have the ability (or desire) to evolve and graduate from this tiresome genre and write classics like Green Day did.

Still, they seem to be having the time of their lives while they can and that, apparently, is all that matters.--Ben Johncock

Format:Audio CD
To classify this particular CD into any one category would probably be just as hard to sing along to all of System of a Down's Chop Suey. When you listen to this CD, it contains so many different types of music, it's too difficult to classify it. Right off the bat they come out with a very metallica-like instrumental and go into a set of punkish/alternative, then we go into speed skater punk, then into a set of pop-punk, then we get into punk/ska, and then rap rock, and finish it out with some more pop-punk. Generally there's the punk tone, but they seem like they're just having fun which I must commend. Sum 41 obviously grew up listening to metal, they even mention it in All Killer No Filler's Fat Lip "maiden and priest were the guys that we praised" ... I find if refreshing to see a band out there just having fun on an album and not trying to make everyone happy with their music. Although I think it is kind of ironic that they actually appeal to many people by just being themselves and not working for it.
I own both CDs Sum 41 has released, and my personal opinion is that this CD is the better of the two. And by looking at both the Amazon.com sales rank along with the number of reviews written about this CD goes to show you that this CD managed to not become so trendy, unlike All Killer.
I highly recommend this CD to any true fan of Sum 41 looking to further their exposure to this talented group of Canadians. But I also recommend that those people looking to buy this CD in the hopes of being trendy stay away as this is a little different (and better sounding) than the poppy All Killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not like the rest! Feb. 20 2006
Format:Audio CD
i don't know why sum 41 always get lumped in with punk bands(green day,blink,nofx). they are really punk but they're more than punk. they're metallic. i think they're punk/metal. this cd is honestly amazing when you first listen to it you'll keep rewinding to hear that last drum fill, solo, or verse. if you haven't heard dave's possessed hair/it's what we're all about, you'll hear something really unexpected half way through. it rocks! buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars A brief look back into Sum 41's brief discography April 16 2004
By Sven_96
Format:Audio CD
What Sum 41's first album brings to the table is a small collection of pop-punk masterpieces. Three of the songs are instrumental filler (even though they're good), and one of them's sort of a joke (T.H.T.), but this is just flat out fun and it was served as an appetizer for All Killer No Filler, which brought out the best in them.
The album begins with an Iron Maiden-esque instrumental, which quickly slides into Machine Gun, one of the better songs on this short album. After What I Believe, another good song, it gets to Makes No Difference, the hit single from this album. After an incredible drum solo from Steve on 32 Ways To Die, in gets to Second Chance For Max Headroom. This is without a doubt the best song on the album, simply because it adds a hint of ska. The rest of the album is a few more pop-punk songs, and another instrumental, and the brief disc comes to a close.
What's funny about this is that they actually extended Another Time Around from its usual time 3:22 to 6:52, giving us three and a half minutes of silence just so it can get the duration up to half an hour. Also, I'm glad Dave changed his name from Hot Chocolate to Brown Sound. Cuz the name Hot Chocolate - well, it just sucks. Anyways, I'm recommending this to middle schoolers, simply because you'll grow out of it by high school. Or not...

5.0 out of 5 stars *~Amazing~* April 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sum41 is the shizzy!!!Personally,im usually into really hard rock bands like Korn,Deftones and Alice In Chains,but Sum41 is sooo amazing!!!!They r the only really good punkrock band out there.For some reason they really stand out from all those other punkrock bands like Good Charlotte and Simple Plan.Its really an insult for Sum41 to be compared to those bands.Sum41 just has soooo much talent and there music is punk with some heavy metal riffs.Especially on this cd and DOES THIS LOOK INFECTED.I really hate it when they play Sum41 on TRL and make them look all poppy,and i dont think that they wanna be a bunch of poppy MTV sellouts because they r soo much better than that!They have rebellious attitudes with some amazing talent.Simple Plan and Good Charlotte would never have a whole track on there CD dedicated to drum solo.SP and GC couldnt do that or play heavy metal riffs if they tried.But anywayz,u guyz have to check Sum41 out!!They r amazing!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars VERY BASIC...BUT IT HAS THE CLASSIC SOUND March 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This EP is very basic...but it has the clasic sound of Sum 41. I enjoyed this cd when i heard it. But it didn't have the massive freestyles like their first LP, All Killer No Filler had. But this is a good album, and if you think this EP that almost made the time of an LP is worth the money then get it. But this is great for an EP.

3.0 out of 5 stars AA(so first review!) gd mini debut of punk Feb. 3 2004
By Mr_Moo
Format:Audio CD
ok, this is a gr8 punk debut mini album contains songs like Daves Possessed Hair/What were all about - great attempt on rap at the end! and Makes no Diffenerence which is higly meloadic punk. The only problem is the album doesnt possess the maturity of their l8r albums such as All Killer No Filler and Does this look infected, but its still a gd punk debut to get u started on Sum 41

I have all 3 Sum 41 albums and I have to say, this is my favourite. It is one of those albums that you can listen to throughout without skipping any tracks. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Sum 41 in the beginning
there's little doubt that this cd doesn't quite match "All KIller No Filler" and "Does this look infected" but it is still very good anyway. Read more
