Disliking teen-pop gets you cast as some sort of rockist Luddite these days, but beyond the fact that most of it doesn't sound like stuff I'd have wanted to hear as a high schooler, it doesn't feel like music for teens either. (Hell, it's more tween-pop than teen-pop anyway.) But what about the kind of stuff that, say, the "1979" video lionized-- breaking into your folks' liquor cabinet, obliterating the speed limit despite just getting your learner's permit, leaving your hometown for the first time and discovering how small it feels. What about jamming out with your best bud and deciding to call it a band?

a little sloppy, but solid overall. sometimes i felt that this album was a bit busy at times, with constant guitar riffs, drumming, and shrill vocals all at once. in addition, there seemed to be some weird muffling of the vocals on some tracks, making them hard to understand. good but not great, basically what i expected for the band's debut. thank god that this led to the amazing album that is celebration rock.

Best Drummer ever. Makes you feel like you area listening to a group of 10 people, however these friends create so much fun, and hilarious lyrical musical. This is amazing album, always keeps bringing me back for more.
