That’s Life is a fairly neat song that took me a few listens to get into. It’s not what you’d normally expect from the band, but has a good main riff and some neat moments. Can I Borrow Some Ambition? is a bit more pop-punk, it’s decent and has some cool vocals. Secure Horizons has some fun moments, and ends with a neat foreshadowing of the final track. She’s Got The Look definitely adds some pop elements and it works well and is kind of funny. I enjoy it in almost a guilty pleasure way.

Looking Good Is All That Matters has a cool chorus and good lyrics. I’m Destroying The World is by far the best song on the album, featuring a violin and banjo and the best lyrics on the album. I could listen to this song on repeat for an hour and be pleased. Chug-A-Lug Night is neat and sounds like a fun bar song. What You Like About Me is kind of nice. I Won’t See You In The Pit is a pretty nice, fast little song.

Black Enforcers is really cool and kind of sounds like another band that I can’t quite a name. I like the galloping feeling throughout. Cram It Up Your Ass is unique and odd and actually only lasts about 80 seconds. The remaining five minutes of the track is a bunch of random piano playing based around the main melody. It’s kind of like them telling you to turn the album off. This is a fairly short, fun album that I didn’t entirely like at first. I still have issues with it, but I get a bit more what they were going for.

Final Rating: 7/10
