Album Review

Pop-punk practitioners rarely make it to a third album without declaring some sort of newfound sensibility — they're going a little darker, say, or they're experimenting with a dancier sound. But Simple Plan stick to pretty familiar territory on album three, which maybe explains the unclever self-title: perhaps the plan for this one really is simple. The Montreal boys pound away at full speed here, cranking out a batch of short, frivolous songs that showcase Pierre Bouvier's nasal but weirdly appealing voice and one, "I Can Wait Forever," that seems to be rooted in real feeling. The whining hasn't let up (see "No Love" and "Generation"), but the fun hasn't either. Credit the producers: Timbaland's protégé Danja Hills pitches in, and so does Max Martin, a knob wizard known for shining up the songs of Kelly Clarkson and fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne.

Stepping It Up!

Okay, so everyone knows that No Pads, No Helments, Just Balls was a great album. This album is right up there with it, but not quite as good. "Your Love Is A Lie" is one of the best songs, and "The End" has a new sound that I personally love as well, but if you haven't got "No Pads..." yet, get that album first. To sum it all up, it IS a GREAT album, Simple Plan should be proud, and I recommend buying it. Go see them live as well, awesome show.

This is dissapointing.

I'm a fairly big Simple Plan fan, but this record is so...wrong. It just doesn't sound anything like them. The synth and extra bits are so tacked-on. Simple Plan already has a lot of talent, they don't need all this extra pop/hip-hop/techo infidelities. Pierre has an amazing voice as well as David, so the extra "enhancments" just drown them out. Chuck is an amazing drummer, but his usual style that he's quite good at does not shine through. Jeff and Seb are both fantastic guitarists, but their ripping chords go unheard and out of mind. Overall, this could have been much better. I know the guys worked hard but for me, personally, it did not click. I'll still be listening to their first two albums and atticipating their fourth though. I have high hopes that their next record WILL be non other than, pure Simple Plan.

Absolutely Amazing

Simple Plan never ceases to amaze me. Sure, things started to sound alike after listening to the first two albums a couple of times, but then when you threw 'em in a corner, and then finally picked 'em up and listened to them again, they seem new all over again. This album, is one that will never seem the same, for it's totally different, every song, and also to the fact considering their new producer. But! I absolutely LOVE IT!!!!! The band has totally matured - vocally, musically - and for the better. Sure, they might've said this album will make them or break them - but I 100% believe it will MAKE THEM!! Congrats SP!
