A pop punk must-listen, Simple Plan's debut is full of unfiltered teenage angst to its strength and detriment.

Lyrically, the album exists mostly for teenagers who are philosophically and need something to shout along to while they get themselves sorted out in their prime puberty fueled growth periods. As for the music, its nothing more than the usual power chord and song structures, but is a great sing a long and gets extra points for nostalgia.

Songs dedicated to young kids.
My almost "guilty pleasure", but I don't really feel all that bad for some reason even though sonically this really is not impressive like at all, especially lyrically.
