Release Date: 2003 | Tracklist


The first thing I will say is that this isnt an album,it came with the DVD "a big package for you".Its like an extra thing you get for free.It only has 3 songs on it and 2 of them were already on their 1st album.The DVD is pretty cool,its got stuff like recording their 1st cd,making their music videos,and stuff like that.


Im pretty sure a least 90% of you know who simple plan is or a least heard of them,but for those who dont here is some info about them.They are a big pop-punk band and have 2 albums so fare.Their first cd was "no pads no helmets... just balls"which was a great album with 4 singles and those songs were "Im just a kid","Id do anything","Addicted",and"Perfect".From their second and most recent album "still not getting any..."it was another good album witch has 3 singles right now and those songs are "welcome to my life","shut up",and "untitled".I heard their fouth single was going to be "crazy" but I am not 100%.We will just have to wait and see.

tracklist
1.crash and burn
2.one day(live)
3.id do anything(live)


crash and burn-This is the song that wasnt on the album.Its much different from their other songs.It doesnt have a guitar intro like most of their song or start slow then pick up later.It starts with a fast intro from the first second the song starts.Then it goes into the fast verse witch is much different then their other songs.The chorus is a little slower and it has echos but still cachy and awseame.Then the fast verse comes in again.The first time I listend to this song,it took me till the second verse to realize that the singers voise wasnt as high pitched and squeeky.Witch is so awseame because that can get annoying sometimes.The song doesnt change much after that,its got anther chorus then a bridge then outro just like any other song.Simple plan needs to write more songs like this.

rating-5 out of 5


one day(live)-Im not a big fan of this song,im not saying its bad its just ok i guess.The music is what makes this song ok,not the lyrics.Its got a catchy guitar intro/riff and some cool drumming.The verse doesnt have anything special.The chorus is louder and rocks more but still not as good.But the song songs much better live then on the album,but most bands sound better live anyway.


rating-3.5 out of 5


id do anything(live)-They picked the perfect song to end the concert.Its a real poppy song but still a good song.Its was their 2nd single off the album no pads no helmets...just balls.Its a well known song by SP.The part whrn it goes "id do anything just to fall a sleep with you" is where it gets poppy.But I still find this song catchy.


rating-4.5 out of 5



overall these 3 songs were good,but the DVD is thing you should get if your a simple plan fan.And also this is a pop-punk band,so if you hate bands like good charlotte or yellowcard.Then this is not the band for you.

screw... these... jerks. They used to be called "Reset", then they got signed to a major label, changed their band name, and started singing about being a lonely teenager who cries in his room about nothing. sigh. It's an okay review, but unless they change their stylings almost infinitely, I'll never be able to even stomach these a-holes, let alone agree with any rating that's above minus 12 out of 5.

Sorry. I had to vent my frustration somewhere. This Message Edited On 07.01.05

If that is your opinion summed up, do you think then this one deserves 4.5/5? I strongly doubt that... That speaks more for a 3.5 / 5 at best.This Message Edited On 07.01.05

Man, Kif, seriously, if you like fun songs that you can jump around and dance to, maybe you'd like Reset. It's faster than the happy, poppy crap that ASP releases, but it's still POP punk, and it's still upbeat. Download/sample the songs 'Pressure' and 'My Dream and I' if you're interested.

Well, I'm personally not a fan of Simple Plan, but this hating on any band is getting old. If you are going to call them a boy band, know what a boy band is, and back up a reasonable explaination to your claim. A boy band are label whores with no instruments who dont write their own songs and choreograph (dk how to spell it) their way to fame. Simple Plan are a pop-punk band that WRITE songs about relatioinships and being a young teenager. So please dont force your argument on a simple statment like "Crap" or "Pussy's"

if you love them so much, watch what you say. you will get flamed really easy for a simple statement like that. i dont like them too much, and i dont think they have that much talent, but that is just my opinion. i got flamed for saying seether was my favorite band, as you can tell by my name, so just watch out.

random_as_drummer, I don't care that you like them, but they definately DON'T have their own style of music, it is just the same old pop-punk that is really, really getting tired out.



I hate Simple Plan, they just whine way to much, now you're probably wondering why I'm looking at a review for a Simple Plan CD, it is because I am so bored I wanted to read things written by people who think Simple Plan are the greatest thing ever, which they obviously aren't, and it's funny watching the people get flamed. So yeah, bad CD, bad band, average review.



This review could be better if you used proper punctuation and capitalization.

Hahaha, it's always fun to look back at my first Sputnik comments.

I don't think you have to own the album to rate it, you just have to have heard all the songs.
