  1. NOFX take a crack at pressing matters both inwards and outwards, succeeding in not only making a seamless expression of both sides but cranking out some truly memorable jams to boot.

    Self Entitled benefits from his [Fat Mike's] more honest lyricism. [Oct 2012, p.90]

    Catchy, fun, and even touched with a little regret, Self Entitled is just the kind of album NOFX should be making at this point.

    Self-Entitled [is] the most energetic NOFX record in a while, but one that still ends up a bit uneven.

    Self/Entitled is a much-welcomed step back in the right direction, offering all the proof long-time fans need that age still hasn't quelled the band's nonconformist, seriocomic ways.

    There's nothing outstanding here but fans of the band will have no complaints, and for newcomers it's as good a starting point as any, with arguably the same ratio of clever understated brilliance to uninspired mediocrity as any other phase of their discography.

    The reassuring thing about Self/Entitled is that NOFX are still gobby, snotty and obnoxious for punk's sake. [29 Sep 2012, p.54]

You've got a few songs about the current state of politics and some social commentary, a couple songs against the idiocy of religion, you've got a couple songs about general punk things and you've got your now obligatory emotional song about Mike's personal life.

    All in all I recommend it, but don't expect anything earth-shattering here.
