The more immediate tracks imo are "Fly Again" or "Don't Play" or "Holiday." I would start with those 3 and not with "Mystery" which I did not enjoy at first but 4-5 weeks later I grew to absolutely love.

311 is a closer reference than 3EB.

I also really loved "TLC" right away and it's probably more closely aligned with their earlier stuff.

This was my gateway track

Having given it a listen, I don't like it much. It does remind me of some of the later 90s bands mentioned here I never liked.

So after reading this thread i might need to call it a "guilty pleasure" so i wouldn't feel ashamed lol . Seriously though, in the end, it's just an enjoyable, melodic pop punk record with some twists

Nothing to be ashamed of at all!

Probably my favorite album of the year so far. Zero guilt.

"Underwater Boi" sounds like a (bad) Weezer side project.
