~ Crunch + Hook = Hell, Yes ~
When you’ve got a supergroup that includes the non-famous members of Fallout Boy, and members of Anthrax and Volbeat, you’re expecting something thrashy. What this album delivered was definitely crunchy, but with some of the most melodious hooks you will ever find from an album this hard. This was easily one of the best albums of the 2010s, and one of the best albums from a supergroup ever. It’s coherent and well-constructed and there’s not really a weak track on it anywhere. It’s 10 years old and sounds like it was recorded yesterday.
