The sound is alot like the Guerilla Rodeo sampler I bought at Winners Never Quit: The Farewell Tour.

Maybe if I listen to it more it will grow on me, but right now I'm not a huge fan.
The sound is a lot alike, because Reese wrote many of those songs for Guerilla Rodeo. When they went their separate ways, he took his songs with him.

This is a great CD. Better than most similar stuff I've heard. Although a lot of the songs do sound similar, the outstanding songs "Hello Lamewads," "Amplify," "Quicksilver," and "In Excelsis Deo" more than redeem this album.

This is a pretty good CD. I like "Amplify" quite a bit.

I liked it for the lyrics. Lyrically, 'tis all right. Musically, it pretty much sucks. I gave it a 7.

I thought it was the other way around (especially when you know Roper has such writing talent).

I basically thought that both lyrics and music were mediocre.

Gosh, I did not even think of that. heh.

I honestly think the mediocrity came out of carrying material over from GR.

There are a couple of songs that I absolutely love on this disk now.

I think the title says it all.
5/10

Most definitely not Reese Roper at his best.

Ehh, a 7. However, it is strange to hear Reese in a punk/powerpop band. It's growing on me.

Talking Best in a while

I have not heard stuff like this in a while it is true pop punk techno stuff it rocks. I mean I have not heard something that breaks so far from the normal pop punk genre.

I've heard that there may be another Brave Saint Saturn, but I really don't know.
