Gave it few listens recently and found that nostalgia has completely revamped this album in my playlist.

Blink-182 The Mark, Tom and Travis Show
Now after the sucess of the mega successful Enema Of The State, this rare live album was recorded to satisfy the raving new Blink fans until they released their next studio effort. Filled with silly fart/incest jokes, this is Blink 182 at their immatureist. The songs itself sound well polished for being live, and sometimes adjusting the lyrics to go along with thier humor. This is included with one new studio track (Man Overboard), which the video is one of the best midget videos ever! This is either a hit or miss because of its humor, but to any hardcore fans, its worth the $65 forked over on E-Bay.

Rise Against Siren Song of the Counter Culture
Given that this album was a major label debut for the guys of Rise Against. That doesn't mean that they fell into the major label trap. Belting out songs of politics and freedom have never sounded so sweet. It has your heavy opener (State Of The Union), your anthemic protest song (Give It All), and your touching ballad (Swing Life Away). Sure it may not be another Revolutions Per Minute, but it took the Rise Against formula and made it their own.

Autopilot Off Make A Sound
As far as pop-punk goes, Autopilot Off is one of the best in the genre. Carefully constructed distorted guitar work, catchy hooks, simple yet complex drumming, and great vocals makes up Autopilot Off's sound. Songs like Clockwork infuses you, and is one of the best on the album. I Know Your Waiting starts off clean, but towards the end the infectious intensity makes this a hard song to take off your headphones. Divine Intervention's soft catchy two chord hook makes this song lyrically the greatest they've ever written. There isnt much room for filler here. Just about all the songs are easy to listen to the ears. This is a big check-into band for anyone who are fans of label mate's Fall Out Boy.

What is there to say about Bon Jovi that hasnt been said by real 'metalheads' about Jon Bon Jovi's girlish good looks. Many have refered to him as Jon Bon Blowme. But this album is a definate staple in the music industry whether you liked it or not. This marked the era where wearing spandex and 'guy'liner was the hippest thing since 'break dancing'. Yes this was a 'radio' cd, because the best songs were radio hits, that doesn't mean the rest is garbage. Raise Your Hands and Never Say Goodbye could have as well became mega smash hits. Yet every other person person who picks up a guitar wants to attempt to learn Wanted Dead Or Alive sooner or later.

Green Day American Idiot
Once you thought that this aging Berkley trio has faded into pop punk history with the experimental Warning album, they are back with a completly "Queer Eyed" makeover on their 7th studio effort in 2005 with American Idiot. Its hard to say what hasn't already been said in 8 reviews, but it has its up and downs. The social politics and pop radio overload can throw even the most hardcore Green Day fan off, but there is alot to be had here. A storyline is relevent to the entire concept album. The title track, St. Jimmy and Holiday keep the same Green Day feel to the song structures while tracks like Give Me Novicane, Wake Me Up When September Ends, and Whatsername give a mellow look at the album. Sure it hasnt covered new ground that hasn't been consistanly been covered before, but its a breath of fresh air to anyone who would give it a fighting chance.
Green Day ¡UNO!
If only this was released after American Idiot instead of 21st Century Breakdown, it would be more forgiving. It sounds like the band is having fun making music again.

Honestly, this band can be so much more if it wasn't for the over production to their music. The music sounds vaguely familiar to Plain White T's. From the debut single Face Down to the tender love ballad Your Guardian Angel, and everything between. This is just pure good pop punk that might find its way through the airwaves sometime in the near future.

Jack Black is one funny bitch. His 'brother' Kyle Gass is a bit goofy, but nowhere near Jack Black. This album however is a drag for the most part. There is alot of rehashed songs from the short lived television show, but there are also some newer ones. The songs have some good depth provided Dave Growl on drums. But what makes this album a drag is the skits. This doesnt flow at all. I'm not saying some of the skits aren't funny. Inward Singing and One Note Song are actually pretty funny. Just it doesnt flow, since only half the tracks are songs. But its a decent pick up for anyone who is looking for a good laugh, with an open mind.

Hinder Extreme Behavior
Nickelb... I mean, Hinder are by no means original in any shape way or form. Basically built by greedy record companies to play a certain 'it' sound for the mainstream audience. After 'Get Stoned' gathered a bit of property among hard rock listeners, 'Lips Of An Angel' took the country by storm with it's cliche lyrics of cheating on a woman and ballad like guitars.

Breaking Ben... sorry, Hinder pretty much showed they're a one trick pony, although the album isn't completly dead. Some depth was actually a surprise among the instrumental position, notabally the guitar writing. Vocals aren't too easy on the ears, but fits what kind of music being played, but the over the top cliched lyrics ruins the whole experience. Homecomming Queen and Get Stoned are perfect examples on the lyrical untalent. Save the best for Better Than Me though, similar to Lips Of An Angel, just a more serious hook to the song.

Seeth.... oops, Hinder doesn't break new ground, but does show promise through their musicianship. Recommened to basically Acey, ha. (As well as anyone wanting to get their fix 'til the next Nickelback album)

If this album had a throat, I'd cut it. Because its the most generic, uninspired album of the new centery. Similar to All American Rejects, American Hi-Fi's bland slice of pop rock graced us all with the one hit wonder "Flavor Of The Week," and suckered over a million music buyers, including myself, to pick this up. The standout (lone) track is Another Perfect Day, it has grown on me even though its similar to the rest of the album.

So basically, it may end up being enjoyable if you can get into this, just I couldn't get passed the genericness.

Please dont get me started on how unbelievably annoying this freakin' guy is. His voice - reeks of cream cheese. His 'back up band' - reeks of smelly corn. His song writing techiques - reeks of a bad Iluvatar soundoff. There is nothing I can find on here that will make me ever want to place this in my cd player again. This is awful and deserves to be buried along with the E.T. Atari games.
