Admitted, it seems that this time around these Chicago natives put some more effort into their songs compared to their debut. They offer danceable poppunk with plenty of catchy choruses and a very, very slick sound. When vocalist Nathan Leone’s voice takes off however, things become whiny and as I was working my way down the tracklisting, I had the hardest time telling the difference between the songs.
Cuts like “Never Take Us Alive”, “Let’s Get Outta Here” and “Criminals” are nothing but teen angst wrapped up in commercially viable pop songs with a terrible nu-metal coating and I doubt this will appeal to anyone above the age of 14.
Score: 4 out of 10
