  • Summary: The Toronto, Canada punk outfit returns with a follow-up to their successful 2001 debut, 'All Killer No Filler.'

  1. This disc has a clutch of songs that mix chord-y abandon with raging rock riffs--and a heck of a lot of good times.
  2. Throughout, the bouncy enthusiasm of old has become heavier, louder, faster and stronger. [Jan 2003, p.113]

    So Sum 41 have grown up... a little.... It's all relative, and, crucially, it still rocks. [#12, p.153]
  4. There are no real surprises here but then in the land of pop-punk surprise is not high on the agenda.
  5. Trouble is, as grown up and grouchy as Sum 41 may have become (on record, if not in Strokes-mocking video), they sure aint no Fugazi.
  6. What's missing is a sense of danger, a whiff of real risk, elements that have always been crucial to great rock.
  7. Does This Look Infected? squeezes a dozen energetic songs into a half-hour, and each one is over before you can figure out why that chorus sounds familiar or where you've heard that riff before.

    Does This Look Infected brings me mixed feelings. While this' on its own is a great CD, and one I bought personally, it is not the follow-up for All Killer No Filler that I would have hoped for when I carried it out the door. But with track like My Direction and Still Waiting, this CD did secure SUM-41 as my favorite band of all time. Expand

    Actually pretty dissapointed with this one. Sum 41 just hardcore sold out. Yeah they blow now. Some good songs but over all i'm dissapointed with Sum 41 and their CD Expand
