I've been lucky enough to share the stage with these guys and spend some time hanging out with them. They're really cool and humble guys, and they have put out some great albums with Say No More and The End is Not the End. But Suburba was not a good album. It was average in every respect. Some good songs, some bad songs, but mostly a lot of generic poppy punk. For a band that had gone from crafting catchy and musically interesting numbers like "Make a Face Like You Mean It (Vampires)" to coming up with a brilliantly executed concept album that stretched the bounds of their genre, this return to generic pop was disenchanting and troubling. It was only fitting they named the album Suburba.
