Ultimately, Wiped Out! comes off as a "see what sticks" effort; it's slick and polished, but hits varying levels of satisfaction throughout.

‘Wiped Out!’ is a fine wine in a sea of vodka Red Bulls, and having successfully mixed pop, rock and hip-hop together, it seems like they have finally defined their sound as a band.

Em “Wiped Out!”, a banda ultiliza uma fórmula que não fuciona em todo o disco. Temos algumas faixas muito bem produzidas, e outras cansativas e tediosas de se ouvir.

Melhores faixas: “Cry Baby” e “R.I.P. 2 My Youth”.

But what I really had a problem with was how 'daddy issues' 'baby came home' 'single' and 'crybaby' are all completely unfitting to the rest of the album, like, nobody cares about the lead singers personal life- Why did they include those songs?
