The first half of this album, except for Claire kind of, is basically pop music, in the same style as songs like 77 Satellites from Singles, and even similar to the poppy stuff from Bleed American, although much, much better. Claire and Episode IV are the best tracks of the first half, even though for some reason I hate the first line of Episode IV. The second half is what makes this album so great, though. The version of Digits on here is a lot better than the one on Singles. Caveman is a decent song, although probably my least favorite because the words are so stupid some of the time (a monster lives in your backyard..a man with a shovel's going to dig deep down to find out where it feeds). The last four songs, though, are the best four songs in a row on any record, ever. On World Is Static, In the Same Room, and Anderson Mesa, it sounds like they were listening to SDRE and Jawbreaker at the same time on different stereos in the same room (yeah, like the song. that's probably where they came up with the title. i don't know). But that's not a bad thing, and, speaking of In the Same Room, it's one of my favorite songs ever. Robot Factory is quite different from those three, and I guess comparable to their song Opener or maybe the song Bleed American, but it's better, and in between these other songs it sounds even more outstanding. So, buy this for yourself and everyone you know for gifts. Forget about Bleed American. And I've had Clarity since it came out but for some reason I've never listened to it. People say it's good too. So, have fun.
