This is an incredible album that's like a rollercoster ride through different styles. It opens with a heavy guitar riff like some hard rock pop. Then follow three of the best pop songs I know, in a row. I don't know any other album that can beat these three songs. From there on it gets obscure. You further get a punk rock song, an instrumental, a square dance song ...

Don't know if anyone listens to the whole album, but "Too young", "Honeymoon" and "If I ever feel better" will just blow you away.
