I don't know anything about this supergroup or the other groups the members come from. I haven't even heard any other Angels & Airwaves album, and I'm not sure if I'm even interested in exploring their catalog. But this album is gold. There's a cheese-sheen on some of the tracks, but that's fine. This is a fun collection of catchy rock songs that should be played in a stadium full of (mostly) positive people. People who just want to rock out without navel gazing and double-checking that they're liking the "right" kind of music.
