What happened?

"I absolutely LOVE JCS. I got so excited when they released a new album, because all the songs on their other ones are so powerful that you just can't stop listening to them. In listening to the first track, I decided it was okay, but the rest of the album sucks. What happened? The songs are so b-l-a-h. They sound so mainstream with so much more of the regurgitated riffs and themes of some of the more mainstream bands out there today, such as Creed, which not surprisingly they make an appearance (so glad they broke up!).
I am thoroughly disappointed."

"It's good, but not as good as their previous two albums. A few tracks really stand out (Strange, Dead Sleep, Unshaken and Paper Dolls). The album seems to be more pop than "Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope", but doesn't have the catchy reggae/ska hooks that "Bring your Own Stereo" had. Where I found every song to be great on their first two albums, "re.present" disappoints with more "filler" songs (Quitter, Beautiful, Unshaken). And even these songs aren't too bad.My favorite song is "Paper Dolls", I love to sing along on the "blah blah blah blah"'s. The one song I really hate is "Ghettoverit": a slow song about how the "Thug Life" is so '97. The song is just not funny, and it's boring. This is a first for me, a JCS song I don't like."
We like it a lot

"Me and 7 of my friends all bought this the day it came out and one of my friends came here to buy one for his cousin and saw these 2 star reviews so we decided to write a group review cuz it's way better than that. We'll go song by song.Falling out - 3 of us love it, 3 of us like it, 1 of us hates it. The one that hates it hates staind. Two of the ones that like it also hates staind. So even if you hate staind you might like this song but you might not. Still, it's only one song and we all agree all the other ones on the cd are better.Quitter - 6 of us really like it. 2 of us aren't that crazy about it yet.Happiness - 2 of us love it. 1 of us could take it or leave it. 5 of us like it.Ghettoverit - all 8 of us like it. It's a fun song that you can't take seriously. It's a good tune.Living with Ghosts - all 8 of us think this is a great, great song. If you've ever lost someone you love, you will be able to relate to this song. Strange - another one all 8 of us like. Maybe because we're strange too.Dead Sleep - maybe the best song on the cd after living with ghosts. Shoulda been the single instead of Falling Out. All 8 of us love this one.Beautiful - Another really good one. We all agree again, we like it.Leech - If you've ever known someone who takes everything you've got to give and more without giving anything in return you will have this song on repeat all day. One of us just broke up with our girlfriend and this song has been on nonstop. Says it's really the first song to ever describe that spent feeling you get when someone drains the life out of you. All of us like this song but he relates to it the most right now.Unshaken - Yup, another one all of us are really into. Great song to get you feeling strong during the tough times.Paper Dolls - Also could be a single. Really a fun song. As good as anything currently on the radio. All of us dig it and 3 of us walk around singing the chorus all day.So, that's it. Just the opinion of 8 guys in LA. Mostly we hope everyone reading this will buy it so JCS can get out here on a tour but we can't see how anyone couldn't like most of ths cd."
