iTunes Review

Big choruses, cheeky lyrics, and crunchy hooks dominate this Canadian pop-punk outfit’s fifth album. The defiant “I Refuse” and giddily obstinate “Opinion Overload” were made for moshing, but the band also play with other styles with great success. The peppy “I Don’t Wanna Be Sad” has swinging verses and a gospel-tinged refrain, and the Nelly-assisted “I Don’t Wanna Go to Bed” is propelled by a popping bassline and slick horns. “Singing in the Rain” adds an island lilt to Simple Plan’s catchy riffing.

So far I'm diggin' it

SP fan since 1999. Love these guys. Miss going to see their concerts. Although these songs are different I really like the "upbeat style" I heard in "Don't Want to be Sad". "Boom" gives me hope they plan on mixing in some "NP, NH...JBs" original SP style jams to appease the old school fans.

Some may not like the newer sound SP is delivering with this album, but these guys are in mid 30's now. They've matured, and so has SP's music/lyrics. Personally I would rather them stay relevant and adapt with the new culture of music we hear today then stick with their old sound and fade into obscurity. Love these guys. I want to see them continue with their success regardless of how their sound evolves. Great concerts, interaction with the fans was stellar, overall just a good group of guys. They made growing up a little more fun...



Loving It :)

Yes, it's way diff from their first album. But I love it 😌. I like how they've changed but still keep some of their og sound in there also (in some songs). Everyone is saying how they sound diff, yada yada. But you're dammed if you do, dammed if you don't. So nevertheless, I like their change :) I'll be an SP fan for life <3 <3 <3
