AVA have made this double album and front man Tom Delonge (Blink 182) past is there; from the first to the last minute. Not many minutes in, I almost felt like I was listening to the soundtrack to an American Pie movie... But this is not another Blink 182 album. I could hear several other band styles in it. Beside Blink 182 because of the voice of Tom Delong there is a lot of U2 style guitar by David Kennedy. And even Pink Floyd styles can be found in some of the almost artful instrumental passages.

From the first listen you feel entertained and in good company with this band. This is a mainstream album of high quality filled with good solid rock songs.

If I should come up with a few sour grapes it would be that the album has too many songs… 22 numbers takes its toll. But if you are having a wild party this is the soundtrack for it.
