What I love about the Copyrights, though, is that they're essentially the Bad Religion of pop punk. All of their releases sound essentially the same, yet there's something about each one that still makes it completely distinguishable from the rest.
So what can be said about the new Copyrights album, North Sentinel Island, that isn't just something along the lines of "it sounds like Learn the Hard Way meets Make Sound"?

about getting away from home or something...
It's hard to explain why an album is awesome when you've already said it sounds like the last one. Fans of the previous material will know what this means, but newcomers may be lost. So, if you're a fan of catchy, energetic music, I'll say this: just listen to it already.
The Copyrights aren't really breaking new ground here. But broken ground can be difficult to walk on, so why would you want to break it in the first place?
