    While the highs last time around ("Slow Burn," "This Ain't A Scene") still feel a bit higher, Twenty Five, even while it grasps at noise and disorder, comes together as a fully formed, mature statement of an album.
  2. More than half the songs sound effectively the same. Rocking, absolutely. Tighter, too. Tuneful, in their way.

    By effortlessly pairing clamorous aggression and thoughtful introspection, the record strikes a delicate balance not easily accomplished by the average teenage garage outfit.
  4. Their latest is yet another gem that you could spin for a room full of the most down-on-their-luck sad-sacks and get them all high-fiving.

    Twenty-five for the Rest of Our Lives, their latest, is by far their best to date.

    It all works in context.
  7. 60
    This melodic yet dynamic punk seems to have been created in the early '80s, a high compliment and one the band is likely to embrace far more than the realization that the disc's title is impossible to fulfill.
