I own it, but I don't think it is as good as their other one. I just think their first album sounded a lot better. It could just be that I'm not a big fan of the direction they went with this album.

i've never heard anything from the first one (except for I Love You To Death, which is amazingly awesome but Dance or Die is totally great! the only one i don't like is How In The World, which sounds like a really bad pop song. D-I-E 4 Y-O-U, Get Your Back Off The Wall, Radiator, and Fever are the best, but the other ones are good too. i really really want to see them in concert (especially since they've won awards for best concert), but we'll see.

Great to see they tried new stuff with this album, but Business Up Front wins hands down.
The new songs are still just as fun live though.

I gave it a 6. It's catchy I'll admit, but I tend to not like music with simple guitar parts. The reason I give it a 6 is because even though I'm not a fan of the music they have an amazing live show. The fact that they have simpler guitar parts allows them to just go crazy.

It wasn't that good. Plus seeing them in concert was blah, i'm glad I didn't pay for the ticket.

5/10. Huge step back from Business Up Front Party In The Back. They went from an addictive weird style that had crunkcore, rap, nu metal, and rock all thrown into one to dance music. That alone was a huge disappointment. But this isn't even all that good dance music. I will admit that there are some catchy songs, but not enough to save the album. I really wish they'd stuck with their old sound, because that was extremely enjoyable.

Haven't heard anything from FF5 before this. Nothing great here although I'm ashamed to admit I love the cheesy song and video to Dance or Die. Also thought How in the world was enjoyable. Nothing else really sticks out to me. 5/10

Agreed. Though even though this album is disappointing, I recommend you check out Business Up Front Party In The Back Diamond Edition. It's quite good, and way better than this.
