I take pride in liking a lot of different kinds of music, from sixties/seventies/eighties/ rock, to rock from today. This CD, although it has an element of something we seem to all have heard before in other punk bands, is original stuff. The way they incorporate the bass guitar is so cool and i love it. This music, however poppish it is, is quite amazing, and songs like the awesome road to recovery really capture emotions I know I've experienced. This CD is a great CD to listen to while in a happy mood, or an angry or thoughtful mood. Great stuff! It might not be for everyone... but it is for me at least.
