    Having seen the Metacritic score and being an enthusiast for punky noise, I had reasonably high hopes for 'The Greatest Generation'. Alas, it proved to be no more than your standard, identikit pop-punk A hundred other groups can and do make the same noise and more or less write the same songs. It's competently played, it's quite well produced, nothing offends the ear and I'm quite sureHaving seen the Metacritic score and being an enthusiast for punky noise, I had reasonably high hopes for 'The Greatest Generation'.

  2. It is my firm belief that The Greatest Generation has no real precedent in this community.

    If you're a fan of autumnal pop that wears its heart on its sleeve as it shouts its feelings out to anyone who will listen and you're not a fan of these guys, The Greatest Generation is here to realign your priorities for you.
