overall it was an awesome CD. I love it, and the songwriter (i'm to lazy to get up and look for his name)--Reese, i think--is really good at writing the lyrics. Talk about poetic. but, for some reason its not the kinda CD that i can always listen to, its the kind where i have to be in the right mood, i'm not sure why, i think its just a matter of preference. i gave it a 9. (plus pre-ex-girlfriend is an AWESOME song, its hilarious. It sounds vaguely familiar, i'm not sure why.....)

I agree with the mood thing... I can't listen to it all the time either, but when I'm in the right mood I can just ROCK OUT with that disc! woohoo! And "You Can't Handle This" is one of the funniest songs I've heard in a while!!

"Making young girls pine... I don't have time... Babies get in line, I've got a protractor! Got a stapler now, it goes "ka-ching!"... Gotta have the math club crown me king.. Gotta rock the screen with cosine graphing on my calculator... If you're up... And if you want.. A piece of me... Wave goodbye, and blow a kiss 'cause you can't handle this!"

heh

The first time I heard this I was like, whooah, they are a lot harder on this album. Almost no ska guitar. They are now sort of Emo-rock with horns. Nevertheless, this is a great CD, I gave it a 9. Reese's vocals are spectacular and the songs are deep and catchy at the same time. I like this CD, but if your down and you want something to get you up, this is not the CD for it, instead get one of the others because this one is not as characteristically upbeat as the others.

I loved this album! I couldn't listen to it all the time, just b/c sometimes it isn't what I feel like listening to, but that has nothing to do with the music. On this album they had me thinking, and I could connect with the music.

FIF2:EB is by far the best FIF album.

Proof the Youth are Revolting is the best (reckon anyway) but EB comes a close second.
I love Spartan, it speaks to me and reminds me of myself at times in my life... Reese just seems to get better every album they do, though his lyrics have always been good, in this album they are all excellent (though of course Jeff wrote car).
Car is also incredibly sad and moving...
And I love farsighted... and vultures and you can't handle this make me laugh...

I'm just joking. Leanor Inez Ortega aka "Jeff the girl"
It's just like a nickname.

at first i had a hard time with this c.d - when it came out i was still hooked on proof that youth are revolting and expecting something that ska-ish and funny. but my friend tim - who is a faithful fif fan- made me give it another try and recently i have fell in love with that c.d its so creative. i love that they dont try to be so ska and that they just dont whatever they want and its crazy that they are good enough to get more serious and harder and keep such a strong fan base. well i am defenitally ready for the next c.d.. whatever style it may be

Awesome CD. My fav FIF cd so far (just barely beating Upbeats and Beatdowns). Plan B is prolly my favorite song, it's so fun to play on my saxophone. Pre-Ex-Girlfriend, You Can't Handle This, Spartan, Far Far Away, Juggernaut.....every song but one on this cd is great. The one song I that doesn't get much play time in my cd player is The Day We Killed, it's a good song, just not my cup o' tea. Overall, this is my favorite cd from my favorite band .

It's a good cd. it's more guitar based than their old cds.

Since I bought this CD (exactly a week ago), I've never listened to anything else on my CD player. I love all the songs, and the REALLY good ones are Pre-Ex, You Can't Handle This, The Day We Killed, Spartan, Vultures, Eulogy.....That's half the album right there. Sometimes albums with 12 tracks can be really short, but this is a rather long album, IMO, too. FIF2:EB is the best FIF album, and one of my favorite album's ever (which is odd, I've never been really hooked on FIF, but now they are like my favorite).
