Good, Not Great| Posted February 03, 2014
After two albums of solo work using the Number One Gun name, Jeff Schneewis gets the old band back together. However in doing so, he also brought back the band's old pop punk sound which makes this album end up sounding just like any other pop punk album out there right now. It's a shame that this is how the album turned out as it did have a chance to be really good, but it ended up being just good. There are a couple of great songs, including the final track which is the closest to sounding like the solo efforts that were more experimental.
This Is All We Know only manages to be good, not great. Jeff Schneewis' vocals are very strong, the fact that the original band members are back, and the final track being the highlight of the album are the things that make the album good. The pop punk sound does get old after a while and the lyrics aren't all that inspirational or memoriable. It's a good effort but just not good enough.
