Chances are, if you enjoy music like this, you've heard all of these songs before. And that's not to dismiss this album or this band completely, but I'll admit after hearing their last EP, and how upbeat and energetic it was, I had high hopes for this full-length.

But these songs are a bit more mellow, and a bit more somber at times, and by the end of the album, the band is in full sappy ballad mode. Think Relient K, without the sweeping hooks and clever lyrics. The problem is, those two things are what make songs (and bands like Relient K) memorable.

And this album is good, but it is far from memorable. These songs have been done over and over by band after band, to the point which you can't tell the songs or bands apart. The music is nondescript. This was what occurred with hair metal in the early 1990's. It was all well and good in the mid-late 1980's when the sound was fresh and original, but five years later, there were a hundred "copycat" bands making the same type of music, and it just became stale and tedious.

This band does have a knack for writing a catchy melody, and the production is very good. But this album could have been so much better. Some of the songs will stick with you, and that is what they are supposed to do. But there is nothing earth shattering on here, and unfortunately, there needs to be in order to put this band above all of its contemporaries. Sadly, without faster, more melodic, and more uptempo songs, this just becomes another album in an endless parade of albums exactly like it, by bands who have been trying to achieve the same exact sound since about 2005.

Listened to this album a few times through and that's only possible because it was over so fast. What's here is solid - it's catchy, fun, and when you turn it up it jumps. There's a neat sound theme to this album as well, and you can hear it through most of the songs - Listen to "What Happened to Emotion?" and you will start hearing recurring elements throughout the album. I gotta note the feeling is different than previous FTSK efforts - definitely not as in your face fun as Underdog Alma Mater, but it still works. And you can't beat that Amazon price.

Let's start out this way. This album has a very minimal amount of auto-tune!!

The album starts out very strong with "Keep on Bringing Me Down" which has an awesome piano start to a very upbeat catchy FTSK we all know and love. The guitar seems a bit heavier on this album for some songs than others.

Right after we get past 2 very catchy tracks we move onto the more "Pop" aspect of FTSK. These songs feature catchy choruses and simply dance beats. Though they are simple they are fun and catchy and that's what fans of FTSK want to hear. My favorite song on the album that stands out to me is "King for a Day." It's impossible to play that song without it being stuck in your head all day.

Upon first listen, these first few tracks might all blend together and it could be difficult to tell them apart. After having the album on repeat a few times you'll find each song is very unique and depending on your mood you'll chose a song accordingly. "Bi-Polar Baby" features an awesome beginning and a hell of a catchy chorus that faintly reminds me of Zebrahead in their prime.

If you're looking for deep/meaningful lyrics than I suggest looking elsewhere. Though, if you're listening to this CD I'm sure that you already know this. FTSK is meant to be fun with high energy and they do their job accordingly.

This a fun album. I've played it everyday and I'm still loving it more and more. The fun-ness (if thats a word)hasn't faded yet and I hope it never does.

I must say that I was very anxious to receive this album, but the long wait was well worth it.
This album contains the classic up beat and fun FTSK sound in songs like "Life of the Party" and "Same dumb Excuse (Nothing to Lose)" Plus some soft and sweet melodies like "Forever Girl" and simply unique sounds like "I guess You Could Say Things Are Getting Pretty Serious"
Over all this is a great album that I have been playing on repeat for the last 3 weeks and it hasn't gotten old. It will definitely be the soundtrack of my summer, especially since the song "Summer Song" is so amazing.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good music.

To say there are album's out there that a person can willingly listen to and legitimately enjoy EVERY single song, is EXTREMELY rare. And I have to say, with all honesty, that FTSK's new self-titled album....is DEFINITELY one of those! A diamond in the ruff to say the least. I bought the CD March 1st (the day it went to stores), and I have yet to see a day go by when I don't think about at least one of those songs. I own maybe 2 albums that I like every song on, and FTSK just made it 3! I love this CD soo much and I hope many, MANY more people feel the same way!

After waiting in anticipation for this album to come out, I can say that it definitely lived up to my expectations. Though the band has surely changed from their Underdog Alma Mater days (still my favorite of theirs), they are still the FTSK I fell in love with all those years ago. Their sound is still distinctive and catchy with beats that make you want to dance. Favorite songs on the album: Keeps On Bringing Me Down, Bipolar Baby! and Robots & Aliens. Seriously recommended to anyone looking for a fun, summer, dance album.
