5.0 out of 5 stars A great, very listenable debut. October 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have all 3 Sum 41 albums and I have to say, this is my favourite. It is one of those albums that you can listen to throughout without skipping any tracks. It is a great album, containing a mixture of mainly pop-punk and some heavy metal instrumental songs. Here is my review of each song:
1. Grab The Devil By The Horns - 5/5 - A great start to the album with this minute-long Iron Maiden style improvision. Heavy and gripping.
2. Machine Gun - 3˝/5 - A change to pop-punk and a good, fun song. Good to sing along to, especially in the "na na na na na", which is funny.
3. What I Believe - 4/5 - One of Sum 41's most underestimated songs. Good guitars at start and again good to sing along to.
4. T.H.T - 3/5 - A bit of a joke song, lasting less than a minute and containing extremely fast singing. Not bad, but not good either.
5. Makes No Difference - 5/5 - The single from Half Hour of Power and a great song. Introduction makes you interested and the song just gets better from there.
6. Summer - 5/5 - Another great song, included on All Killer No Filler. Fast guitars and drums. Good to sing along to, especially in the chorus.
7. 32 Ways To Die - 3˝/5 - A minute and a half instrumental containing an unbelievable drum solo from Steve. Guitars help to make this good as well.
8. Second Chance For Max. Headroom - 5/5 - The best song on the album in my opinion. Highly singable and enjoyable. Changes somewhat with horns later on, and then back again.
9. Dave's Possessed Hair / It's What We're All About - 5/5 - Both songs on this track are great, especially the former, which is about their former bass player. But why two songs on one track?
10.Ride The Chariot To The Devil - 3/5 - Quite an unnecessary track, given that there had already been 2 instrumentals.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DEBUT FOR SUM 41 November 1, 2004
By MMAfan
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite debut albums but it didn't really move Sum 41 up higher but there 2nd release did so we don't need to worry. This and there 4th release are more punk/metal then there 2nd and 3rd albums but every cd from them is worth the money. This is a very good cd. What I like about this cd is the amount of guitar and drum solos in each song. There are lot's of them and some are almost or a whole song. The drumming for track 7 is cool. This contains some of my favorite Sum 41 songs like Makes No Difference and What We're All About. The vocals aren't as great as there newer releases but it's still good. I recommend any fans of punk/rock/metal to pick up this cd. You'll never put it down.



2.MAchine Gun-(2:29)-10/10

3.What I Believe-(2:49)-9/10


5.Makes No Difference-(3:10)-10/10


7.32 Ways To Die-(1:29)-10/10

8.Second Chance For Max Hedroom-(3:51)-10/10

9.Dave's Possessed Hair/It's What We're All About-(3:47)-10/10

10.Ride the Chariot-(:54)-10/10

11.Another Time Around-(3:22)-10/10

3.0 out of 5 stars A brief look back into Sum 41's brief discography April 16, 2004
By Sven_96
Format:Audio CD
What Sum 41's first album brings to the table is a small collection of pop-punk masterpieces. Three of the songs are instrumental filler (even though they're good), and one of them's sort of a joke (T.H.T.), but this is just flat out fun and it was served as an appetizer for All Killer No Filler, which brought out the best in them.
The album begins with an Iron Maiden-esque instrumental, which quickly slides into Machine Gun, one of the better songs on this short album. After What I Believe, another good song, it gets to Makes No Difference, the hit single from this album. After an incredible drum solo from Steve on 32 Ways To Die, in gets to Second Chance For Max Headroom. This is without a doubt the best song on the album, simply because it adds a hint of ska. The rest of the album is a few more pop-punk songs, and another instrumental, and the brief disc comes to a close.
What's funny about this is that they actually extended Another Time Around from its usual time 3:22 to 6:52, giving us three and a half minutes of silence just so it can get the duration up to half an hour. Also, I'm glad Dave changed his name from Hot Chocolate to Brown Sound. Cuz the name Hot Chocolate - well, it just sucks. Anyways, I'm recommending this to middle schoolers, simply because you'll grow out of it by high school. Or not...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny October 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Sum 41 rocks, and so does this album. Yes, it is only half an hour long, but it's dirt cheap too--they haven't sold out, and hopefully they never will. "Makes No Difference" is a great song, but I think that "What I Believe" and "Another Time Around" are just as good, if not better. Sum 41 does resemble Blink 182's "Dude Ranch," which I think is one of the best albums ever, so if you liked Blink before they sold out, you'll probably like "Half Hour of Power" too. And if you're still not sure, you can go to their official site, and download a mix of their best songs in mp3 format.

4.0 out of 5 stars These Canadiens Rawk!! April 28, 2001
By Drew
Format:Audio CD
Poppy,energetic,funny,melody-driven,hook-filled,and furiious are all words to describe this new punk band from Canada.Not one bad song on this cd featuring three awesome guitar and drum solo tracks,Grab the Devil By The Horns And **** Up the ***(the best one),Ride the Chariot to the Devil,and 32 Ways to Die.Here are my favorite tracks in order:1.Makes No Difference:Catchy,catchy, catchy,catchy,catchy!!!!! - 2.Summer:A Blink-ish tune that should be on the radio! - 3.Machine Gun:Appropriate title to this song that you can mosh to but it's still very melodic underneath the spit-filled vocals and cazy Iron Maiden-esque guitars. - 4.Dave's Possessed Hair/It's What We're All About:Fast and catchy like the rest of the album but features a rap duo with everyone in the band near the end. - 5.Second Chance for Max Headroom:Energetic tune with some nice harmonies.NOTE:If you like Blink 182 than you're stupid if you don't buy this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
