5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tunes!,
This album is great. Its POP Punk, but its fun to listen to and makes you wanna have a good day. In light of all the emo crap thats out there, this album is the counter to emo. Its happy, well done, and enjoyable.
5.0 out of 5 stars A change… for the BETTER.,
This CD has been criticized over and over by old fans, saying the sounds just not how it used to be. If you like hardcore music, music with no tune, or screaming with random guitar riffs, this change is a bad thing. But listening to this type of music has always bored me and made me want to fall asleep. I find CIVs new sound much more interesting and far easier to listen to over and over. Now, you don’t have to be a wimp and like listening to typical mindless pop to like this CD, either. Its basically good punky alt-rock. The best track? My call is track 13, Little Men. Its a somewhat eerie acoustic song with a tune that could stick in your head for days, and lyrics that keep you from feeling embarrassed that you actually like an acoustic song. Its just perfect.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great album,
This CD is just as rocking as the first one, but is a bit more musical. Its an excellent punk album, so buy it today.
The hidden track is worth buying the CD.
