  • Summary: This is the debut LP for the Toronto indie-rap collective (excuse us, the "positive hardcore dance-rap band") led by Matt Collins.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 8
  2. Negative: 4 out of 8
  1. Comes on like an in-your-face Avalanches, with elements of Pavement-style art-rock and a punk attitude thrown in for good measure. [Nov 2005, p.127]
  2. Somewhat more reminiscent of Rage Against the Machine than the Beastie Boys or Eminem, the group... is as good as any rap outfit at expressing anger; in fact, they're more eloquent than most.
  3. An album with a sharp ear and a positive, inclusive atmosphere.
  4. If I want to hear something where a load of people are having a blast and making a racket by smashing styles together and singing silly songs, I'm gonna reach for The Go! Team. They're probably just as irreverent, but they're not nearly as annoying.
  5. Young Adults Against Suicide comes off as the less talented, R-rated Beastie Boys doing PSAs.
  6. There is bad music here, to be sure, and although the intentions are good, they are expressed in the now-common nihilism of our generation, where nothing is sacred and everything is a joke.
  7. An ugly mess. [#11, p.116]
