  • Summary: This is the second full-length from the Kansas-based emo band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 9
  2. Negative: 1 out of 9
  1. A diverse, accomplished album that manages to be unabashedly emotional, playful, and ambitious all at the same time.
  2. An often-inspired collection of eccentric pop songs and unexpected proggy workouts. [July 2002, p.108]
  3. Your Majesty comes off as less gooey and precocious than your average Vagrant Records paramour. [May 2002, p.78]
  4. But for all their influences, the Anniversary retains its own personality, with a laid-back style and pizzazz that keeps this party a pleasant one.
  5. While The Anniversary may not have set out specifically to jump ship from emo, they have traded in the chaotic compositions and off-kilter vocals for a more straightforward rock sound.
  6. For pleasant, albeit unchallenging pop-tunes which will not offend anyone, but may also put you to sleep, Your Majesty is the way to go.
  7. Their music,... while pretending to be candy-coated pop-rock, shares all of emo's key indicators, including melodramatic vocal delivery, seamless production, and shameless overambition.

    This album far exceeds the work on their previous album, "Designing a Nervous breakdown." It's fabulous.
