I like nearly every song on this disc. A great follow up album to their first. I own all three of their albums (Cycles is the latest) and this one is my favorite. They are a fantastic band to see live, so much talent. I really enjoy their sound and am happy they keep producing great songs.

This is my first Cartel CD, and I think it's pretty good. There weren't any particular songs on the album that blew me away, and there are a couple that I always skip, but overall it's solid album that I enjoy listening to.

This album is kinda stupid. It's boring, faceless, and seems like almost no effort was put into it. Stick with Chroma- it's a much better CD than this one.

As stated by an earlier review this album sounds like one long song. The songs all sound very similar to each other. I think that Cartel is a great band but this album is really lacking the emotion that was in Chroma. I would recommend buying that album instead.

I first heard of Cartel when their song "Honestly" was being played all over MTV Hits. Still, I never got a chance to pick up their full-length debut album, Chroma (but I don't think anyone else did either). However, I picked up their self-titled album, and it IS above-average, but...

I never heard about the band documenting the making of this album while living in a plastic bubble (whose bright idea was THAT? Did they not remember the bad reception that the movie Bubble Boy got?), but anyway, this is another one of those cases where there's nothing really here that makes them sound any different from any other emo band out there. There ARE some good tracks, though, like "Lonely One" and "If You Do, If You Don't". But there are also some not-so-great ones. "The Fortunate" makes no sense; and although "Wasted" is okay, Wyclef's politically-charged remix of it is fast-forwardable.

There are also a couple of times where there are two very long songs in one that would have made more sense had they just been separate songs: "I Will Hide Myself Away" and especially "If I Were to Write the Song". Cartel's self-titled album is just enough to satisfy your punk-pop appetite, but they should really do something more to distinguish themselves from the pack.

Shipped on time and the actual CD was in good condition (no scratches or marks) but the case was in terrible condition. A little disapointed.

Okay so im a new fan of Cartel, so i heard this album first. and im glad i didnt hear Chroma first or i wouldnt have bothered. I love this album and i think its better than the first. Better melodies just better music over all. the last album sounded like the usual mtv driven (not thats always bad but you want something different) rock. I dont know if the singer is different but he sounds muuuch better. my new favorite band.
