"A lot of people think that Unwritten Law step aside from their "Punk Image" with Elva, but for me this is the album that they kind of broke away from that. That's not to say that is a bad thing. With this CD Unwritten Law cut the strings off and freed themselves from all the "punk rules" to make an AWSOME album. Even though in my heart of hearts I still believe Unwritten Law to be a punk band. It's just with this cd they've evolved BIG TIME! While it does have a lot of punk in it, it also has a lot of metal, New Metal, and the song Lonesome kind of sounds Funk to me, but when all this is rolled together it just makes for some really good Rock N Roll. I can't say that this is their best album because you would have to go a long way to beat Blue Room, but if this album isn't better than Blue Room it's sure as hell is right up there with it. There is such a wide ranch of songs on this cd, and it proves what a talented band Unwritten Law is. You've got everything on this cd, from songs like Cailin (which is a love rock song) to songs like Teenage Suicide (which is a really fast pop punk song). This album was sort of their "transition" album. Which is why I guess it's a self-titled album. And I think the reason they did this was because they didn't want to sound like EVERY other punk band out there that sounds or tries to sound like Green Day's Dookie. A lot of people call Unwritten Law sellouts but to me there is nothing less punk than putting rules on it, but who cares about labels? Personally I don't think Unwritten Law can make a bad album (even though I would say Elva is my least favorite, but I still liked it) but there is just something really special about this album that I can't just put into words. I can honestly say this is one of my fifteen favorite albums of all time. What else can I say other than this is an amazing album from an amazing band, and if you call Unwritten Law "sellouts" then you have one of two problems: You don't know how to think for yourself or you just suck."
