EDITORS’ NOTES

The na-na-na refrains and marching beats on the soaring opener here, “Satellite,” sound absolutely epic—like a Skids anthem from the late ’70s. Then the album piles on the mountainous hooks and sugary hopefulness, from the boot-stompers “Kicking and Screaming” and “Cinderblock Garden” to the lifting “Tidal Waves” (which features Mark Hoppus from Blink-182). They heartily embrace their pop-punk roots on “Don’t You Go” and “Open Scars,” while a delicious, Squeeze-like descending hook propels “Kids in the Dark.” The layered, soon-to-be-classic “Runaways” really shows this Baltimore band to be songwriters to be reckoned with.
