I am a big sum 41 fan but i really didn't feel this album was up to their standards at all. There are a few really good songs but then there are also some that are very very average. The uk bonus track is quite a good song though. I'd listen to it before purchasing and i really hope sum 41- greatest hits isn't the next thing to come...

I'm a big fan of the punk pop genre and this album is classic modern day stuff. There is a very big blink 182 and green day influence on the album so if you like them then you'll like this.
The album is not as raw as their previous outings but is very well executed and there are some very catchy songs.
To some it isn't "punk" enough but its just better produced and has a cleaner feel. A definate purchase for the price.

Im not what you would call a fan of Sum 41. In the past i have liked a few of their songs. I was interested to hear more when i heard 'With Me' it is the best song on the album. I also love 'Best Of Me' I think Deryck should do more singing like he does on this track and 'So Long Goodbye' instead of just shouting. I also love fast punk songs and there are quite a few on here. I like the inclusion of the piano on some of the songs like 'Pull The Curtain'.
Top tracks:(In no order)
Count Your Last Blessings
Pull The Curtain
King Of Contradiction
Best Of Me
Confusion And Frustration In Modern Times
So Long Goodbye

At first I was trying force myself to like this album, because I am a huge fan of Sum 41. But what you should understand is this just isn't the Sum 41 we know!
With the departure of Dave (the lead guitarist) it's quickly become evident that he was the one who wrote all the guitar solos, riffs, etc because most of this album is very soft, and more piano etc with Cone and Steve writing some of the songs.
I think if your looking for something soft, and something different, then this is it! But if your looking for classic Sum 41 I'd say buy their old albums. There are a few good songs such as Underclass Hero and The Jester but I miss Sum 41's punk attitude and style in this album!

Ok, I think this is probably Sum 41's best album to date. The songs are well written and it is a departure from previous albums and see's a return to the type of tracks that are on All Killer No Filler.
However, it really does sound like this album should have been wrote 4 years ago as the similarities to Green Day's "American Idiot" are frightening! Derek could almost be accused of plagurism on certain tracks!
That aside though, I still think it is an excellent album but as I say, Green Day already did this album in 2004.

back to what sum 41 started as.......
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/10/2007 21:06:17
.....just a little more grown up. derycks choice to produce the album was not to do with his ego but since dave left, the band also lost there management and feel out with long time producer greg nori.
deryck had produced his wife (who sucks) album and stepped up to the plate. and pulled it off, except on my mp3 player, its seems quite compared to other albums on there... anyway.
underclass hero starts with the title track a song that sounds like fat lip with the american idiot solo in the bridge. but its works. the album has many green day/blink 182 sounding moments, but still feels like sum 41s own work. the lyrics are more mature ranging through anger, politics, love & seperation. there is one song, which if not for one really awful note being hit before the chorus would be the best track on the record.
the jester is a good song as is count your last blessing
with you is nice i guess if you feel lovey but otherwise just makes you think of deryck and avril and makes ya sick. one track i think track 4 hits a wrong note that really is noticable and affects the song - which had the wrong note not occured it would be arguably the best track on the record - quite drastically.
goodbye so long is a song with mixed feelings in it, both "we can still be friends" and "what went wrong" meanings a clear song in dedication to Dave aka brownsound aka hot chocolate!
the bass seems like it could have some moments of its own but the guitar takes centre stage, possibly Deryck saying "see i can play guitar too" and for there first album without daves fingers the guitars are very good.
the drums also are spot on as Steve Jocz displays his talents as one of rocks finest drummers
the album is worth owning but won't blow you away if your looking for originality! more for 41fans and pop pogo punk bands of the same generation.
3 is a harsh mark but 4 would be to kind. i'll have to say 3.5
