With 2005's From Under the Cork Tree, the band fully delivers on their first full-length's promise.

Alternative Press

Strump questions whether he’ll be known for his hits, not just his misses. Judging from the strength and stride of From Under The Cork Tree, we’d have to answer with an emphatic yes.

This album was a huge part of my life in my emo phase from 2015-2017, so I decided to come back to this after not hearing it for ages. I'm actually quite surprised, I'm not a pop punk fan anymore (with a few bands as exceptions), so me still enjoying this genuinely surprises me.
