Reseña de álbum

Sum 41 have always seemed like blink-182's baby brothers, right down to their nonsensical numbers in the name, so it's only appropriate that they're also attempting to grow up just like blink — or better still, a bit like blink and a bit like Green Day, who have proven to be the standard-bearers for how latter-day punks can grow a social conscience and become mature, as evidenced by American Idiot. Sporting a similar-sounding but not as politically potent title in Underclass Hero, Sum 41's fifth studio album extends upon its predecessor Chuck's deliberate attempt at getting serious and relevant, giving the impression that they're telling a story, creating an anthem for the "underclass hero," the slacker who can't be labeled as an underachiever because he never attempts to achieve. The first couple songs here — the fists-in-the-air wannabe anthem title track, the narcissistic self-loathing "Walking Disaster" — hit as hard as processed pedal distortion can, but Sum 41 (now down to a trio after the departure of guitarist Dave Baksh) soon abandon any larger narrative as they start to stretch out with acoustic guitars, keyboards, and Queen harmonies uncannily reminiscent of My Chemical Romance's The Black Parade. Despite these flashy accoutrements, Sum 41 don't want to be emo, they don't want to be prog, they don't even aspire to the mock the U2 atmospherics of Angels and Airwaves; they want to be nothing more than predictable punk-pop. Like all Sum 41 albums, Underclass Hero is ingratiating and hooky enough to have momentum but not enough to linger in the memory.

Sum 41 are back and better than ever

Let's face it, with blink-182 gone, Good Charlotte going in the dance rock direction, and Green Day taking half a decade on their next album: pop-punk is in short supply these days. So Underclass Hero is already a great endeavor to the genre faithful whether it will prove to be a success or not. Sum 41 are as boisterous as ever, but they’ve matured greatly since the days of All Killer No Filler. Several tracks openly speak against the Bush administration, and others dig into the personal matters of Whibley's absent father. Sum 41 can also crank out some clever ballads without getting too sappy or abandoning their flamboyant spunk. They haven’t lost their talent for outrageously catchy choruses either, every powerful hook will never escape the boundaries of your mind once it enters. With its enthralling rhythms, smart lyrics, and lasting appeal, Underclass Hero may just be the best album of the year.

They have finally done it.

As an extremely hardcore fan of this band; I give my verdict: They have finally surpassed All Killer No Filler." All of the Sum 41 albums are in my top 10 albums of all time, and Does This Look Infected still remains the one I would give to someone who has never heard of them before, (how can you not expose someone to The Hell Song and Still Waiting) this is definitaley there best CD yet. They take the deep serious side and acoustic numbers of Chuck and infuse it with the punk side of them. (Half Hour of Power, All Killer No Filler, Does This Look Infected, etc.) 5 Stars and the best album of 2007.

A New Perspective

Sum 41 has taken another step in exploring their limits. Although there are some new sounds from them in Underclass hero, they have not turned their back on their past. This album boasts the new sound (which, in my opinion, was necessary for Sum 41 to be a great band) but keeps fans of the old music entertained with throwback tracks. Each track now is more layered and has more background voices and additional instruments. With that being said, here is my track ratings: 1. Underclass Hero: This track seems like it was lost when All Killer No Filler was made and they have found it again. This is a great classic Sum 41 track. Rating: 10/10 2. Walking Disaster: A new type of sound from Sum 41, incorporated in an abstract lyric layout. Very catchy and easy to listen to. Great song. Rating: 10/10 3. Speak of the Devil: A good demonstration of the abstract sound that Sum is capable of. This song grows on you. Rating: 8/10 4. Dear Father: An emotional song about Deryck's dad. Although it is personal, it is made to appeal to everyone, as most people can relate to this somehow. Rating: 6.5/10 5. Count Your Last Blessings: Sounds like their old stuff possibly, until you realize that there are pianos (Sum 41 and pianos?) in the background. Great song though: 8/10 6: Ma Poubelle: A French song about trashcans and pants. Not the best song, but shows that Sum 41 are not all serious in this album. Rating: 5/10 7: March of the Dogs: One of the most obvious examples of Sum 41's new political attitude, March of the Dogs has a flow that enables to sound like a punk classic. Rating: 9.5/10 8. The Jester: Another fast, catchy, political song with real feeling. Rating: 8.5/10 9. With Me: A thoughful song about love and emotion. May be sappy for some, but is a great song in my opinion. Sum 41 were missing this dimension in their previous albums. Rating: 9/10 10. Pull the Curtain: Another example of Sum 41 moving in a new direction. Good mix of hooks, solos, and lyrics. Rating: 7.5/10 11. King of Contradiction: A short song that demonstrates the band's love for harder rock when Dave was still part of the band. Fast and furious. Rating: 7/10 12. Best of Me: A little like With Me but missing a little of the edge. Still a great, thoughtful, layered song, but only sounding like Sum 41. Rating: 7.5/10 13. Confusion and Frustration in Modern Times: More of the social message that is being portrayed from the band. More good lyrics, well composed. Rating: 7.5/10 14. So Long, Goodbye: An acoustic demonstration by Deryck, featuring string instruments. Good to listen to, a new perspective obviously shown. Rating :7/10 Overall Rating: 9.5/10 When reading the reviews, you can see that the people's favorite songs are all different, showing that Sum 41 have accomplished what they set out to: to create an album where every song has a different meaning for everyone. With the new attitude in hand, Sum 41 is out to define punk-pop and using methods only manageable by the best punk-pop bands (Blink 182, Green Day, My Chemical Romance come to mind), Sum 41 have become the full, mature, complete package in a band.
