    The end result of this is an album that'll come as a blast from the past for the band's fans and should easily get heads nodding with its affably introspective lyrics and huge choruses.

    The Papercut Chronicles II is the year's most charmless album, 11 punishingly dull rock-rap tunes with hooks that would've sounded dated a decade ago.

I enjoyed 'The Fighter' & 'AssAn extremely dull album, most songs sound the same and it felt like a chore to finish this album, so I didn't. I enjoyed 'The Fighter' & 'Ass Back Home' and that's it. I'd avoid this if I were you. Collapse
