Pop Emo music with very well constructed songs. I heard they were on a Top something on MTV.... I dunno. But still a pretty solid release. To be truthful I starting to get curious to hear their new album.

This is a good emo band. The vocals are typical emo sounding but great in any case. My favorite song is probably Your Stories, My Alibis and Playing for Keeps. Good cd if you like emo music it also has some slow songs if you like that type of music.

This is a very emotional cd, with amazing lyrics. However sometimes it seems to repeat itself just too far, which is a shame. You have to admire the graphic design and thought that has gone into the making of the cover. Theres a hidden bonus at the end of this cd as well and it is a welcome surprise, but strange and of no value.

These guys rule!! The firts time I heard this cd from the net, I only like 2-3 songs. But hey this is not poor-pop-punk-shit, it is really good, anyway if you call it emo or punk or pop.

In my opinion the singer's voice is great! The music makes me feel so good. Too bad for the screams (not many) who are very...not loud.

This is the best cd I received (on 5).

Oh my god, what a great cd. I received it a week ago and at first I thought it was okay, but after I heard the whole cd 5 times I really started to like 13 of the 14 songs. There's one acoustic song and that one does not really fit among the other songs. The only annoying thing is the hidden track with tracknumber 84! You have to wait or skip from number 15 to 83 and then you get a song (or something experimental like that) that should not have been on this great cd.

Anyway: Buy this record as this is one of those cd's that's over 90% of great music!

And by the way, their live performances are even better than this cd! I saw them when they played with Pennywise in Amsterdam last year. I got two headliners for the price of one!

Excellent cd. It stayed in my stereo for a long time. It's one of those cd that you just have to listen to all the way through...every song is better than the one before it. It's go a lot of energy put into it.

There are a lot of bad reviews about this CD. I don't understand why. Matchbook has become one of my favorite bands in the last year. I'm not a huge fan of pop-punk, but what they have done with this CD is amazing. It's not the same as all that other stuff that's out there today. Buy this CD.
