    User score of 5.7??? Really? What the hell... Perhaps this has something to do with this being Laura's first album since she came out. Anyway,User score of 5.7??? Really? What the hell... Perhaps this has something to do with this being Laura's first album since she came out. Anyway, I find this album phenomenal. Much better and more emotional than White Crosses, which I also loved, this is Against Me!'s best album since Reinventing Axl Rose. It's more punk than anything in between then and now as well. Not only is this the rawest expression of angst in years, it's also an incredible exploration into the lives of people with gender dysphoria. Not only is this a musical achievement, but a social one as well. Maybe in ten years when all the transphobic nonsense has died down, this album will be seen as the masterpiece that it is!!!

    This sounds just like a spoof of Green Day when they still made this kind of music. Totally overrated by critics, and, I don't want to be rudeThis sounds just like a spoof of Green Day when they still made this kind of music. Totally overrated by critics, and, I don't want to be rude at all, it feels as Grace's personal events and the (slyly) matching album title are the main reason for it. Average to the marrow and not worth buying. Full Review »
