Jul 19, 2019Clocking in at just over 35 minutes (not including two bonus acoustic tracks), Order in Decline mercifully sheds the filler that bogged down the band’s previous releases. Ten amped-up tracks provide just the right amount of time to savor but not tire of its focused intensity. ... The album’s pitch-perfect production and riotous bombast make for a hell of a fun ride.
Jul 19, 2019Taken as a whole, it’s the hardest and heaviest album they’ve ever made, and across its 10 tracks, it’s also Sum 41 at their most creative and willing to explore their frontiers.
Jul 19, 2019There's little ambiguity here and, compared to their earlier work, it's a refreshing evolution and maturation. That a group of Canadian punks would be the voices of reason in 2019 is a wonder in itself; that they've delivered one of the most accomplished albums in their catalog this late in their careers is another.
Jul 19, 2019There’s no delusion going on that Sum 41 have reinvigorated pop-punk, but Order In Decline certainly qualifies as a pleasant surprise. ... They’ve proven that there’s still something left in the tank.
Jul 19, 2019A thrashing, crashing metal record with brief dalliances in solemn balladry (as on the stark, compelling “Never There”) and even Imagine Dragons-style stadium pop (jarring album closer “Catching Fire”), it is a noisier, more impersonal record, and one that aspires to a thematic breakthrough that it never quite reaches.
Jul 22, 2019There's nothing here we haven't heard done better somewhere else. Sum 41 can and have done better.

Jul 20, 2019"Decline" is absolutely a return to form for Sum 41. Whibley finally stops trying to over produce each song and sticks to what he does best,"Decline" is absolutely a return to form for Sum 41. Whibley finally stops trying to over produce each song and sticks to what he does best, which is writing catchy hooks, which are accompanied by amazing guitar work, pumping drums and all around fun. While lyrically, there will be moments that sound a little too much like older Sum 41 songs, and maybe a borrowed melody here or there, it's still a very fresh and interesting new album from the group.… Expand
