I am in true love with this album! From start to finish it is one of my top ten albums of all time! Props to Yellowcard for showing me what real punk is! Okay, I got this CD at school when they were carrying boxes of the CDs around class, etc. It was a local band from the school I went to and I wa.

I am in true love with this album! From start to finish it is one of my top ten albums of all time! Props to Yellowcard for showing me what real punk is! Okay, I got this CD at school when they were carrying boxes of the CDs around class, etc. It was a local band from the school I went to and I was like cool, because this of course is when I was listening to bands like Reel Big Fish and Save Ferris haha.

#1 - L.P. is one of the greatest drummers of all time and continues to be one of my biggest influences in punk rock.

#2 - guitars and bass are completely amazing!

#3 - vocals are the best! I love Ben Dobson's voice! I think it is one of the more noticeable voices out there. He's awesome.

The songs on here are incredible, '2 Quarts' is simply amazing, it's fast, catchy and irresistible. 'Possessions' is one of my favourite songs on the album, as I also have Planet Radio's Native Noise Volume 1 which has a different recording of the song (i think, it may just be re-mixed/mastered). 'Sue' is a fucking killer slab of skate punk I love it. 'American't' starts off a little on the ska/punkish side. It's really cool. Also one of my favourites, 'Up Hill Both Ways' with a nice bass intro. 'Me First' starts out with Sean on violin and is catchy and slow the whole way through. 'For the Longest Time', my least favourite track on the CD is a cover song. 'Get Off the Couch' is really melodic and fast. 'Interlewd' is just that. It's acoustic guitars and violins all the way. 'Someday' is simply amazing. 'Goodbye' is good call and response punk. And last but not least is the secret song on the cd, it's hardcore metal. Anyways, this cd rocks my world HARD. I love Yellowcard!

Truly one of the most beautiful things i've ever heard. This is one of those albums where at first you're like "This is bad" but then you listen to it a couple more times and you're like "Why did I ever hate this?"

1- Two Quarts, I like the chorus and the part where it is just the drums. It has the sort of sound like Blink-182 during "Chesire Cat"

2- Possesions, this song has a really catchy chorus which is the song we sing all the time in school, it's like an anthem!

3- Sue, This song was on their later album "Where We Stand", but I really like how from the beginning to the end, except for the part around when they say "Think about the things we said, think about what they mean" it's really intense. The guitar solo is one of my favorites to do on my guitar.

4- American't, I really like this song because i'm an anti-america guy. (Yell at me all you want, it's not going to change my mind) This song came out before Bush was our president but it's still against him because in the chorus they say "You're nothing, nothing, nothing without your lies" Sound like they're saying it to a certain president, eh?

5- Uphill Both Ways, also off the later album "Where We Stand". I really like how it starts off all calm but then all of a sudden you here "All these thoughts keep running through my head" and it turns into another fast paced, intense masterpiece for this album.

6- Me First, This whole fast paced thing that runs through this album is cool, but sometimes you need something to slow the whole CD down, this is that something. With the modest solo's and the plot being about 5 friends leaving the town that makes them miserable, in my opinion, this is the best song on this fantastic album.

7- For The Longest Time, This song is a cover of an original by Billie Joel. My dad really didn't like the version by Billie Joe so I gave him this song. He said that the song by Billie Joel was all bland and acappela, and this was the just the thing the situation needed to make a bad song, somethig bad. They play it kind of bad as a diss against Billie Joel as well. This is kind of short but it's the thing that made a horrible song good.

8- Get Off The Couch, the anthem for lazy people, this song has a beginning that makes you wanna see how it turns out but in thr chorus, I love how they have more voices join in when they say "Get off the couch..." There's one down point to it as well. This song also was starting to develop a plot, but it had a rather abrupt ending. It is still a magnificent song and a good way to start the interlewd.

9- Interlewd, This song is only about a minute and 40 seconds, but during that short amount of time it goes through several phases (It also gives you some time to go into the kitchen for a snack :P) I like how it's the violin and acoustic guitar. This track stands out from the rest because it's something you'd never expect from a hard rock album, that's why it's good.

10- Someday, This song is a great way to (almost) end the album. This is because when you listen to the guitar solo near the end you hear the guys going "Whoooooooaaaahhhh" and that's one of the most intense moments on the CD, thus, when it ends, it's almost like listening through a whole CD

11- Goodbye, This song is kind of unrythimical at the beginning but it's a really good song, like the guitar solo, and the chorus sounds like one of those "Get-up-and-do-something" songs which you think would be for "Get Off The Couch" but it isn't, and that's another thing that makes this album really stand out.

12- Last Night, This is, as you guesed, the bonus track from the album. I'm not sure if that's the real title, but I think it's a good name. It starts out as a steady creeping rythim, and then, steady, powerful, rising music, this one where the way they play and sing reaches out and grabs you. Goodbye is a good song, but it being a sort of breaking up song makes it a bad song, normally, the listener would be unhappy that it ended in such a way, but if you are patient and listen, you'll hear this. I guess what I am really trying to say is that, when you hear this, like in F.O.D. by Green Day, it's a really great way of just saying "Encore, thank you, and goodnight" all at the same time. So listen to the CD, it is truly great!

this is an early effort of yc and one that i prefer to their new stuff. it seems a little harder and the vocals are more edgy. sue is an awesome rock song, i don't give a shit about how punk this stuff may be. what happened to the guy who does vocals on this cd?

This album is a true soundtrack of throwing people of short height. It gives you the feeling you are tossing one yourself as you listen. It takes you to a whole new place.
