    With Glass Boys the band takes another evolutionary leap without leaving anyone pining for the past.

    Glass Boys is a more than worthy accomplishment from a band that has been too busy playing by their own rules and constantly rewriting what it means to be punk to care about others expectations.

    An impassioned record that feels like their most raw, personal work to date.

    Glass Boys' legacy will likely be the Fucked Up record fans praise for its songs, rather than the risk-taking. [Jul 2014, p.95]

    It cannot be denied that this album can’t help but fall short of the previous two records’ effect, given the massive quantity of pioneering moves captured in those albums. Nonetheless, whether or not Fucked Up can see it, they’re still doing the music world some good.

    Refining rather than challenging their boundaries, Fucked Up reconnect with the sounds that first set their pulses racing. Glass Boys is a gloriously savage return.

    It’s softer, but it’s nice to see a band unafraid of mellowing.

    The Production of this record is the only thing that bothers me. Otherwise it's a catchy, fun, uplifting summer album and everything i would have hoped for. Much more immediate than the overlong David comes to Live(ofcourse still awesome but its difficult to sit through if you know what i mean) and maybe their most consistent record to date. Preferably enjoyable while sunbathing or just relaxing while enjoying barbecue. The other records have the better individual songs but this is thoroughly solid and fun Expand
