Montreal-based mega-hitmakers Simple Plan launch their third studio album with a familiar mix of energy and commitment -- and a completely new sound that should shake up fans and the charts. Working with producers and collaborators such as Nate "Danja" Hills (Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado), Max Martin (Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson), and Dave Fortman (Evanescence), the band employ not just the pop-punk that made them famous, but also hip-hop, new wave, and even power ballads!

All Music Guide - Tammy La Gorce
Pop-punk practitioners rarely make it to a third album without declaring some sort of newfound sensibility -- they're going a little darker, say, or they're experimenting with a dancier sound. But Simple Plan stick to pretty familiar territory on album three, which maybe explains the unclever self-title: perhaps the plan for this one really is simple. The Montreal boys pound away at full speed here, cranking out a batch of short, frivolous songs that showcase Pierre Bouvier's nasal but weirdly appealing voice and one, "I Can Wait Forever," that seems to be rooted in real feeling. The whining hasn't let up (see "No Love" and "Generation"), but the fun hasn't either. Credit the producers: Timbaland's protégé Danja Hills pitches in, and so does Max Martin, a knob wizard known for shining up the songs of Kelly Clarkson and fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne.

    LOVED IT!

    I've been a Simple Plan fan for a long time and this was the last CD I was missing. I was so excited to find it at Barnes and Noble in the bargain bin. WOW, it was only 7.99. I wasn't sure what to expect but after listing to it, I thought it was awesome. There was a couple songs that were a little different from the style that their known for (alternative rock) that I didn't like but overall it's totally worth spending your money on. So I recommend that you go out and buy it. You won't be disappointed.

    Simple Plan Simply Awesome

    In their third self-titled album, Simple Plan brings a more mature sound, while still keeping their original sound. Fans will not be disappointed; if anything, it will make them feel closer to the band. Simple Plan's songs talk about the usual -- heartbreak, being in love, and one softer ballad called Save You, about Pierre's brother who had cancer (which thankfully went away). I promise that it was well worth the 3 year wait.
