  3. 9.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    It’s a complete thrill from front to back that manages to retain the band’s whacky nature while making some inspiring progressions forward. You can't get much closer to a modern punk classic than this

  11. 8.0 |   The 405

    A raucous record celebrating living your truth- even if it is death-obsessed and anxiety ridden. But with bombastic choruses and an energy that just doesn’t quit, PUP still lets the fun they have making music shine through
