Simple Plan: Self-Titled

2008

Do you remember the time Simple Plan turned into an alternative rock band?…Possibly not because I’m not sure if many people really even knew this album came out back in 2008. This was the bands third album and I have to say it did show a sign of maturity but I think it was more of a learning experience for them. By that I mean that they seem to have learned that they should probably stick to their pop-punk sound because it suits them better. A majority of this album feels forced and has this sense of forced narratives trying to cater to the bands fans. It was nice to hear the band go back to their pop-punk style on the following albums because this one was a failed attempt at something different.
