4.7 superbAdam Thomas STAFF | May 16th 11

did somebody just call American Idiot the best concept album ever? jeez, it's like anyone can get an account at sputnikmusic these days...

5.0 classicTyler | June 10th 11

This album has more going on than most discogs. Just an absolute song-writing masterpiece. Cohesive, thrilling, butt-kicking, genre-surpassing, best album of the first half of 2011.

4.5 superbWilliam Lim | March 29th 13

Listening to David Comes to Life is like going to a four-act play (not even a musical, just a play): you either fall asleep half way through or you're loving every second of it.

3.5 greatSnoogitov | March 15th 12

I want to love this thing so much, but it's just so goddamn long and not even remotely diverse. It's over an hour of astounding lovemaking guitar war, without a single misstep, but the fact that it all sort of blurs together and ultimately ends up being just "loud" in this format completely kills my desire to call this thing perfect. It does have some incredible tracks regardless, though. "The Other Shoe" is one of my favorites of 2011, easily.

3.5 greatDan Gelinas | December 10th 11

On paper Fucked Up are my kind of band; boisterous, abrasive and a badass girl is playing bass. Ultimately Fucked Up allow their songs to go on for minutes after they ceased to entertain. Each song on this LP is fully twice as long as I would prefer considering the amount of ideas per song (Fucked Up are no Propagandhi). In execution, Fucked Up fail to impress with repetitive song structures, solid vocals and drums, lack-luster guitar work and barely-there bass. Queen of Hearts, A Little Death and perhaps another 12 minutes off the 77 minute total runtime merit a 4.5 but this album is SUBMERGED IN FLUFF.

5.0 classicShoey | June 12th 11

I'm in complete awe of this album. Instantly becomes my album of the year, and possibly the decade... everything about this album just screams perfection to me. I wouldn't change a note, it's perfect.
