RossS.10All sum 41 music is awesome!!!
DIPPADAMS8The first melodies are good, but the rest of th
Mark7There are some great tracks, but the slow ones aren't memorable. My beef is that they don't incorporate their influences; they STEAL them. "We're all to blame" = Chop Suey by System of a Down. "Bitter End" = Battery by Metallica. "Some Say" = something by Oasis (don't know the title). There's more, I just can't place them yet (it's only been a day). I mean I love the fire Sum plays with, and the message, but they really need to get better at using all of their influences to build their own product. That's why this album doesn't flow consistently. BTW, as a metal fan, the guitar is actually really good at times... just wait until they hear some Scandinavian metal.… Expand
GregC4After "Does This Look Infected", I have to say that I'm very disappointed. While DTLI wasn't really original sounding, they had some good lyrics and were getting far as a band (and I still think that their first two albums had better songs with a more distinctive sound). But "Chuck" is just.... following the trend... a dieing trend. I guess they could have called this cd "Beating a Dead Horse" because that's all they're doing. I just got the cd and I wish I could return it, because I just wasted almost an hour that could have been used to do some work. So in the end, Sum 41 moved too far away from their good pop-punk/beastie boy sound that made them. Bless them for trying, but for the love of god go back to "All Killer No Filler" and stop this psuedo nu-metal BS.… Expand
