It’s weird to think of Sum 41 as a veteran band but hell, it’s almost exactly a decade since ‘All Killer, No Filler’ and Whibley’s warriors are still doing their thing. And while the Canadian four-piece may want to be seen as a grown-up rock ‘n’ roll band – as evidenced by the retro-styled, slightly underwhelming likes of ‘Baby You Don’t Want To Know’ and ‘Reason To Believe’ – they’re still at their best when unleashing some metallic pop-punk fury, as on the title track and ‘Skumfuk’. They’re no longer a phenomenon; instead, Sum 41 have continued to mature into a rather good band.
