That is not punk music.
J. Hornbuckle
I listen to punk all of the time, but it seems like these guys tried too hard to get a punk feel.
Skylar Ann Murphy
Like that you can download it to my ipad as soon as I purchased it.

Every "Punk Goes..." compilation will have dozens of naysayers who will complain about the invalid nature of these releases. These compilations face a double-edged sword; either artists are not `punk' enough or the cover songs are not `pop' or `crunk' enough. Fearless Records places these compilations on the chopping blocks with each release, but the simple fact of the matter is they are not going to change the title of their series to be intensely precise about their composition (Post-Hardcore Goes Power Balad anyone?). Fearless releases these records by corroborating with any alternative band they can manage to pull into their studios to record cover songs. As a result you get an equal amount of hits (Punk Goes Crunk) as you do misses (Punk Goes 80s). The question for the majority of us is: Is this CD the former or the latter?

Punk Goes Pop 2 is decent; it starts and finishes solidly but mostly drags in the middle. I'll definitely throw some of these covers onto my playlist, but you won't find me listening to the entire album again anytime soon. Buy the songs you like on this album individually. If you still are committed to purchasing CDs (like me), a small handful of songs are worth the $10 commitment.

That being said, I will give you a comprehensive review that will help you determine if this release could be to your liking. If you want a summary of this breakdown, this compilation can be broken down like this: 3 Post-Hardcore covers, 4 Alt. Rock covers, 2 Metalcore covers, 2 Synthpop covers, 2 Pop Punk covers, 1 Punk Rock cover.

1) "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" - Alesana (Justin Timberlake cover) is a Post-Hardcore variation. Half singing, half screaming; Alesana does a good job bringing a harder sound to a good pop song.

No matter which album in the 'Punk Goes...' series you pick up, you're sure to at least find one awesome cover, they've all had their flaws, but if you check out this release, I'd say it's the best one since "Punk Goes 80s." Due to current pop/punk climate, apparently Fearless was forced to pick a bunch of the artists out of the more hardcore genres, since that's seemingly where it's at. The result is at least one instance of screaming on every track, you'll also get a little pop/punk, a little electronica, and a mixture of all the above. But contrary to what you may find on the Amazon 30-second samples, it's not a start-to-finish screamo-fest.

Highlights Include:
"Apologize"
"Over My Head"
"Beautiful Girls"
"What Goes Around..."

Of those four songs, all but one contains at least one scream. I personally can handle a mixture of it, but scream to much, and my ears begin shutting down. But I question the addition of the screaming, for example, "Over My Head" in it's pop/rock mode is excellent, but then it starts adding in the screaming, and it darn-near ruins it. Without the screaming added, it's an otherwise excellent track. Same goes from the rest of the songs, and the only song where the hardcore elements work in the song's favor is in "What Goes Around..." "Apologize" is another one done excellently, keeping the screaming to a minimum, and it holds a sense of urgency that gives a great take to the song.

Amazingly, Chiodos does a good job, not great with the almost untouchable classic work of "Flagpole Sitta." The electronica elements of "See You Again" are pretty weird, and "Love Song" leaves a potential lot on the table.

There is a lot going on on this album, but you can't always hear the melody over all of the screaming. I listen to punk all of the time, but it seems like these guys tried too hard to get a punk feel.

I ordered this CD because some of my favorite bands were on it. I've listened to it probably six times in a row already and Im really happy with it

The original punk goes pop was of much better quality. This album has some good ones but also some flops. It might depend on the type of music you like tho.
