WHAT: Stop the World

WHY: I did not think Stop the World would make such an impact on me, mostly because I didn’t think I could ever get used to the vocals. I still don’t think I like the vocals, but Stop the World sounds like a love letter to ALL; every note, every guitar solo, every melody, every tone. For someone starving for new ALL material (“two new albums, one instrumental”), this album is a reminder of just how much this band is missed. There are some absolute bangers here like “If Only,” “Sorry Sometimes” and “Don’t Make Sense” which are objective pop punk gems that will worm their way into your brain. It goes to show, this music can still connect even when it’s an homage to the originators.

Listen to it here.
