really late to the party, so here goes. *takes deep breath*
i find it excellent. i've always liked the band but i find their previous albums dogged by filler, Brand New Eyes having the least (that being said, they had better songs at this point). the singles they put out before this album were kinda meh in the sense that it sounded as if they were trying to pursue that emo/pop-punk direction even though they lacked two original members who were big components of their sound. but the new album is great. it's long but it's probably the poppiest thing they've ever done which happens to be a great thing.
also ain't it fun is the greatest 90s song ever. /end
