    The band's second release suffers from poor lyrics and over-familiar song structure. Having said that, 'the Photograph is Proof' and 'Set Phasers to Stun' makes this a more enjoyable listen that their later releases.

    Nowhere near the genius of "Tell All Your Friends", if anything because it tries to emulate the previous album so much. It's still good, but the lyrics are lacking some of the spice from before; the departure of Shaun Cooper and John Nolan is painfully obvious at times. Fred (don't remember the last name) gives solid backing vocals, but often tries too hard to sound like John.

Oh, I know I'm a little bitter, but: Adam, next time you try and diss my beloved John in your songs- try not too be so obvious. Subtlety is good sometimes. Expand

  1. [It's] not just emo, but the purest, most virulent strain of the stuff.
  2. The [lineup] changes bolster the will to power in Lazzara's Cure-like croon.

    It's the album most bands wish they could make. [Aug 2004, p.101]
