. From the very start of the opener, "Acceptance", The B-List pique my interest. With just a few chords and Nick Ohrnberger"s voice, anticipation builds. The song takes on several different emotions and swoons and crashes with impecable timing. This is to be a recurring element throughout.
Starting with a song like "Acceptance", and finding songs like "Running Away" (reminiscent of Emery and A Loss For Words), as well as, "Blood, Sweat, and Beers", I feel the real command that these songs would have at a show or on a night hanging out with friends. Now on the other side, songs like "Beyond Belief", "All The Same", and "House Party" do a great job of rounding everything out. Now the real crown jewel here is the closer, "Vanlife". Starting with an early 00's riff the song instantly puts me in full nostalgia mode. Honestly, this album was put together by five guys who know how to crank out first-class Pop-Punk. The only issue I have is that there's no attempt to experiment or supply fresh breath to the saturated Pop-Punk scene of late.
Overall Rating: B-
