    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]

    While the unrelenting energy can be somewhat exhausting, it's hard not to get swept up. [Jul 2014, p.73]

    Glass Boys is the best album Fucked Up have released so far, by virtue of it being the “laziest” collection of their career.

    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 wouldThe 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
