    Awesome album, right up there with ...Is A Real Boy. Maybe better even.

    Arguably their best album, new style that worked well. Each song just has its own ring to it and flow.

    disc 2 > disc 1 [2] But it took a while for disc 2 to grow on me, what an album though.

    other way around for me. i only like 4 or 5 songs on the first disc, but i love nearly all of the songs on the second.

    1st disc is pure gold, 2nd one is hit and miss, but still good.

    A lot of people hate on this album, but I personally think anything Say Anything does is gold. I think this album is gold. :D

    Great album and a worthy successor. there will never be another IARB, but this album is incredibly personal in a different way than IARB, and that's why I appreciate it so much. If you don't like this album, you are not a Say Anything fan.

    i used to be absolutely obsessed with this record. it's still great but i can easily say IARB is wayyyyy better now.

    I put this album in the category of "OH GOD, MY EARS. TURN IT OFF AND PUT ON BASEBALL"

    The album is great, but it gets pretty tiresome towards the end of the second disc.
