All Music Guide - Todd Kristel
The members of Simple Plan don't have anything new to say, but at least it sounds like they're having a good time saying it. They're so full of pep and energy that they even seem to be having fun even when they're singing "God must hate me" or proclaiming that "life is a nightmare." Granted, they sing mostly about typical adolescent trauma -- their philosophy is best expressed in "I'm Just a Kid" when they bemoan that "the world is having more fun than me" -- but they do seem to have the knack for putting these issues into words. Simple Plan doesn't break any new ground and doesn't stay revved on all cylinders all the time. This probably won't move you if you consider ...

This probably won't move you if you consider bands such as blink-182 and Sum 41 to be too mainstream for your tastes, and you might also be disappointed if you're searching for the perfect pop record. But if you're interested in an unpretentious collection of reasonably catchy and energetic songs, then you might want to consider this album.

    No More PLEASE!!!

    I have only rated this 1 star because it won't let me rate lower... Some reasons why I hate Simple Plan: 1. Peirre's voice sounds the same in every song! He has no variation, no rythm 2. Their songs all sound the same! Their songs are all about a girl 3. They have no talent whatsoever, reasons are in the above point. This is a boyband who can play instruments! They would rather be dancing on stage than jumping up and down with instruments! This is only some of the reasons, There are way more but I can't find the words to describe them and it'll take to long, read below for REAL musicians and artists!

    AWESOME!!!

    After hearing such songs as "I'd Do Anything", "Just a Kid", and "Addicted", I enjoyed the songs so much I decided to get the CD. The music is energetic and just fun to listen to. The weird thing is, I'm not a fan of "punk"-rock music at all, and I like this band. I'm more into hard rock and such, so I even surprised myself. This is a good CD, a good band. If you like "punk"-rock music, like Simple Plan already, or have an open-mind, then I highly recommend you get this CD: YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!! (I sure wasn't.)

    I loved simple plan, but...

    love simple plan but I believe that he is not right that they say that the musica of blink 182 is current then aside from simple plan they also are a very good band. and before writing that class of commentaries I believe that of they berian to investigate about the band of blink 182.

    Simple Plan music is therapy.

    Man, what can I say about Simple Plan? They ROCK! They're far, far away from prep music and different from hard-core rock... They're thoughts are of a normal teenager; one that DOESN'T lead the freakin "charmed" life of popularity! You can relate to A LOT of their songs! GO SIMPLE PLAN!

    SIMPLE PLAN IS TERRIBLE!!!!! i cant believe i owned this

    simple plan is the biggest poser-band ever!! lets face it, every song is the same (stupid and melo-dramatic) this is just a way for rich preps who wish they were bad skater-punks to "rebel" against their rich parents (even though they are the ones who buy the cd's for the kids!!!)

    BEST BAND EVER!!! NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!

    Simple Plan is the best band in the world! It's punky in your face lyrics are easy to realate to. The guitars and drums are perfect, making you want to get up and sing in front of your mirror (come on... we all do it). This album is loaded with songs that you will want to play over and over again! Perfect for those who like punky music, but aren't into hardcore punk. (Plus, Pierre and David are H-O-T, hot, Hot,HOT!!!!!!! LOL!)

    Simple Plan is great!

    Except for the rather suggestive cover and title, this cd is awesome! I love every song on the cd, especially "I'd Do Anything", "I'm Just a Kid", and "God Must Hate Me." If you like Blink 182, All American Rejects, or Yellow Card, you'll like this cd.
