Ive grown to appreciate this a lot more, even though i think they were at their best in the next outing.



Here is a lot of youthful energy but better songwriting than what came before. Im trying to get into suburbia but its a bit of a homogeneous blur, for now.

Homgenous blur is basically all of these guys' music, until it clicks. Then it rules



I swear, I didn't actually hear the choruses until my 5th or 6th listen of this

If anyone wants to hear a Ska version of this band, check We Are The Union, and their album Self Care.

It's borderline Wonder Years worship, but with a Ska twist.

It's really good.

Am I the only one who thinks No Closer to Heaven is their best work?

Has some really incredible songs, but find it incredibly inconsistent compared to this. For my tastes, anyway. Not much of a fan of the singing style Soupy adopted

Cigarettes & Saints is like one of their top 3 songs tho

Yeah I agree with symbolic. No Closer is a fun listen but there are tracks on it I wouldn't touch on their own, whereas this album is banger after banger

Always gonna have a super soft spot for Suburbia, but this is one of those albums where I know like every single lyric. I will say that (Get Stoked On It! aside) they've gotta have one of the most consistent discogs from the past 10 years or so, especially for a pop punk band

This and Suburbia are their best imo. Suburbia taking the cake. But, I really DON'T like Cigarettes and Saints. I skip that track on that album.

Suburbia and Greatest Generation are almost a completely different sounding band than No Closer and Sister Cities.



Love both generations of the band, not gunna try to compare.

Does anyone have any other great examples (in any genre) that recalls prev songs like I Just Wanna Sell Out My Funeral does?

Such an incredible closer

What a Catch, Donnie by Fall Out Boy off their album Folie a Deux comes close. During the ending they have the chorus of all their biggest hits being sung in the background. It was a pretty powerful closer to that pre-hiatus era of the band. Essentially their swan song considering once they returned they were TRASH.



Thats the closest I can think of! Agreed that IJWSOMF is absolutely incredible.

Marianas Trench does it on Masterpiece Theatre. The last track goes through a bit of every single song and it's super poppy but it's fun.
