    How pop they are doesn't really bother me, but this record is chock full of filler. Some good catchy stuff, but a lot of fluff.

    God I would have loved this band if they existed in like 2002.

    Really? That surprises me. Thought this album was kinda a dud.

    Did the first hit platinum? I felt like that one was way more successful.

    Don't know the answer to that, but I think it must have. There was about 100x the buzz around that first album compared to the second.

    Think it actually went gold in the US and the one million figure is worldwide.

    Really? I loved it except Waste The Night/Vapor, personally would have dropped those in favor of Over and Out/Lost In Reality off the SKH EP.

    I like this band, but Hey Everybody and Permanent Vacation are two of the worst songs I've ever heard.

    Wasn't into this album as much as the first one. Too many songs on it also

    Things have changed.

    Too many songs, and a surprising amount of slow material.

    Thought the first album was a lot of fun, while this one was forgettable.

    Yeah, I haven't listened to this one more than a couple times. Thinking I might spin it again soon to see if I like it more
