We Can't Stand Sitting Down, Stellar Kart's sophomore album, is sure to be an amazing follow-up after the band received Dove Award nominations for 2006's New Artist Of The Year and Rock Album Of The Year for their first release.
"This is a good album with a couple of very good songs.
Stellar Kart has a sound that appeals to teenagers. They have a positive message. They are a Christian band and their lyrics reflect it. They are not afraid to use the name 'Jesus' in their music as so many others are. Their sound is pretty light, but very pleasant. The song 'Me And Jesus' is a standout here.
If you want a good album to get a teenager and you don't want to have to worry about awful lyrics, this would be a good choice."

"First of all, nobody can argue that Stellar kart is defining boundaries in music. But that's not what they set out to do. This guys are pop punk, and with this album, much more on the side of pop. The effect on his voice (it's definitely not raw) gets old fast, and adds to the lack of distinguishable traits that would make their songs unique. Most of the second half blends into a one big piece of pop for me. But I do like Stellar Kart, I really enjoyed their first album, it was much less produced and much better, in my opinion. So from a fan that enjoys MxPx, Relient k, Hawk Nelson debut etc, I would not recommend this album. The first is much better, and it is money worth spending. And I definitely do not agree with the below reviews statement that it beats MxPx And Relient K's latest album. And the blink 182 reference doesn't make sense with me.
Unfortunately, Stellar Kart has released a over produced, semi-sappy, lackluster sophomore album that didn't get me as nearly pumped up as the energy blasting out of their first album.
I highly recommend their first album, but can not vouch for this one. Listen to the sample, honestly, because the album is no different then what you will hear there, so if you like it, go for it, you're in for a treat, if it's nothing special to you, check out their debut.
Exactly what I was looking for

"I loved punk growing up and now have become more active in Church and was looking for a band that played music that was my style, but that also reflected my beliefs and what I wouldn't mind my kids hearing. This is it! They also did a concert at my Church last week. They are great! God bless."
I love it!

"Stellar Kart is a great band. Their style is awesome. The band members themselves are funny and personable. Their music is great, and I love how they wear their faith. I'm so disappointed with many bands such as Relient K and Hawk Nelson, although they're very similar, they do not praise our creator! I even heard somewhere that one of them said that using God's name is tacky! I'm always proud to support a band that boldly expresses their faith. Unfortunately, Hawk Nelson is one of those bands that you have to sift through all the other stuff to find God, and Relient K is a "crossover" band. Stellar Kart keeps their music directed towards God, in their own funky and fun style.
My favorites on this CD are Activate, Me and Jesus, I'm Pretty Good, and Procrastinating. I love this CD, and I know you will too."

"I was VERY surprised when I first heard this album. When I bought it, at first I had thought I had wasted my money on something that wasn't any good. Usually I don't buy a CD until I've heard more than two songs off the CD ("Me And Jesus" and "Hold On", both of which I first heard on the radio), but I bought it, anyway. And today, I HAVE NO REGRETS AT ALL! Every song is catchy, especially the songs mentioned above. This has turned out to be one of the best groups I have, along with Avalon. LOVED IT, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!:)"
