It's just simply one of the most "fun" albums of the decade. Catchy lyrics, catchy hooks. Little depth, but that's okay.

A-

Best tracks: Campus, M79, A-Punk

8/10 -> B

There's nothing outstanding here, but everything's very fun and good to listen. I love Oxford Comma.

I thought this album was overhyped for most of the year, especially after a weak free concert early in 2008. But then all of a sudden in December after a radio festival performance, bam I can't stop listening and singing along to it non-stop. A/A+.

One of the more original bands to come out in a while, which is a good thing in an era of copycat mass-produced sounds. I look forward to seeing how they progress with their next album.
