At Subway on Tuesdays you get a 12" sandwich for only $3.99. You can get what ever you want on it or you can get it plain. Have you ever heard of MxPx, New Found Glory, Unwritten Law, Mest or Simple Plan? If you answered yes to the above question then I really should not have to describe this...

At Subway on Tuesdays you get a 12" sandwich for only $3.99. You can get what ever you want on it or you can get it plain.

Have you ever heard of MxPx, New Found Glory, Unwritten Law, Mest or Simple Plan?

If you answered yes to the above question then I really should not have to describe this record. However, it's a review and that is the purpose of it. I just couldn't find words for this record, so I'm going to borrow some from past reviews on Punknews.org to describe Saturday Supercade's Everyone Is a Target.

"You're a group of friends; young, bored, and hungry for success. You're fed up with school, relationships, family, and just life in general. Time has taken you to the tender age of 18 and upon all you think you've been through, you decide to do what? Answer: Make A Band. The scenario is the basis for what seems to be any new pop/punk band to hit the scene within the past few years. "It's the latest craze!" the people cry." - Sicarius' intro for his review of Something Corporates' - Leaving Through A Window.

"In general, I don't find this album to be creative by any means. I find Mike, the lead singer's voice, to be quite annoying. Musically wise, things aren't that better. Lyrically, I just don't feel floored by this record. "Would you like some asprin for your bad hair day." No, sorry, I'm just not buying into this. I've written better songs than that, sorry. Maybe if you are looking for simple to listen to, this would be easier for you to accept. Everything seems repetitive, and the songs sound the same! I guess this just isn't for me." ?? Huey's thoughts on MxPx's first release Pokinatcha.

"However as I listened closely to this record, I became more concerned. The lyrics to these songs seem like they were the ones I wrote in 7th grade math class. The song topics cover summer jobs, forgetting to study, running away from home, and strict parents." ?? Paper Lantern on Simple Plan's immature No Pads, No Helmets, Just Balls.

"They remind me a lot of Unwritten Law, especially the vocals, which need to come WAY down in the mix. The singer drowns out the band a decent amount of time" ?? Scott describing the faults of the Slick Shoes on their split with Cooter (Autopilot Off).

"In the end, this is a CD you should only pick up if you like Good Charlotte, and trust me, all of you have already made your minds up a long time ago. One more thing, the vocals on this disc are a little different than their last CD, because Joel doesn't sing in his "rappy" sort fo way he did before, it is much more slowed down and just the trendy old pop punk style. You all get the picture." ?? WussEmoRock's ranting concluding Good Charlotte's - The Young and the Hopeless.

No originality to the context of the review and that is just how this album flows, or doesn't if you will.
