  1. These guys have created a pop-punk album that isn't timeless, but that's not the point. Wishful Thinking, by design, tells the story of a point in time, one that only has meaning because it won't last.

    There are little surprises on Wishful Thinking, but with that comes little letdown.

    For all their technical skill, there's something terribly generic about this band, who don't seem to have a fresh or distinctive move in their entire repertoire as they bounce through their cookie-cutter tunes.

    This band definitely shows some promise & potential on this album. On the better tracks they manage to come through with some really fun,This band definitely shows some promise & potential on this album. On the better tracks they manage to come through with some really fun, engaging & heartfelt pop-punk. But unfortunately for about half the time everything just kinda blends together for me & this band in general doesn't come off as distinct or memorable as I feel they could be. 67/100
