  • Summary: The third album for the Quebecois punk-pop band was produced by Dave Fortman, Danjahandz, and Max Martin.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 12
  2. Negative: 2 out of 12
  1. The release does establish Simple Plan as on e of the most consistent acts making music today. [Feb 2008, p.109]
  2. Simple Plan's plan--to get you bouncing, bobbing, and otherwise grooving--is still simple. And like all uncomplicated strategies, it's still remarkably effective.
  3. Simple Plan is a shameless little heatseeker, which isn't much of a musical problem. Provided you're after a good time, several cuts make excellent use of keyboard bleeps and drum-machine beats.
  4. There are some decent pop moments: 'When I'm Gone' is a seize-the-day anthem with a cathartic refrain. But most songs, like the angry barnburner 'The End,' are barely distinguishable from a dozen or so other Warped Tour bands.
  5. 40
    Album three aims for maturity, but the results are stunted.
  6. Simple Plan continue to plough forwards wuth a punk template of such box-ticking efficiency that they at times resemble automatons. [Mar 2008, p.111]
  7. This isn’t music so much as it is economic exploitation of a demographic.

    This album is tied for the best album i have ever heard in my entire life. I love this record, and Simple Plan is my favorite band in the entire world of music. My favorite songs are "Your Love is a Lie", "Save You", "Generation", and "Time To Say Goodbye. This album is their best album ever. Expand

    This album is a great melodic album for someone who is looking for nice and catchy guitar parts together with great vocals. Now, before all the bashing begins, this album is for TEENS! Means an adult might not like this, that's alright. But for what it is, which is a melodic rock album for teens I give it a 9. Expand

    Better than "Get Your Heart On" By miles, had much more rememberable tracks and only a few forgettable. Definitely would recommend this to any Pop-Rock fan! Definitely not their best though!!

    *Ps. I love people who act like Simple Plan are a forgettable band will then go listen to today's pop and rap music or metal for that metal.. no rock band today even compares to the legends from the 60s and 70s, but simple plan at least sticks with their own style and doesnt go too poppy.. well minus Get your Heart On*
