It hits just under Riot! for me. Brand New Eyes may very well be their best album yet, but personally I think there's a lot of great songs here squandered by overly clean and crisp production. Also Hayley doesn't sound as good here to me, even if the lyrics are technically a lot more mature and interesting. Complaints aside, this is still a really solid album, and I'd take this over a lot of other alternative rock/pop punk records from around the same time Brand New Eyes came out.

It's like Riot!, but more mature, more emo(tional), heavier, just pretty much overall better and gets better with every listen. A great album

Best tracks: The Only Exception, Brick By Boring Brick, Careful, Ignorance, All I Wanted
Worst track: Misguided Ghosts

I love this album! I wish it were mixed a bit differently, but that's about it. Nostalgic n shit :)

what i like the most about this is tha fact that the songs i don't really care for didn't ruin my experience on the album at all, and Ignorance is my fucking jam.
