I don't like it ...sounds like a bad mix of Pennywise and Ignite :( I was hoping they had finally found a new singer and Zoli would record another album with Ignite (it's about time!!!). Without Jim's voice Pennywise is just an average band!!!!

Cool. Havent listened to this yet, last I heard I thought Zoli had left and they had someone else in touring with them? What happened there?

Really? As I said on the skatepunkers facebook, when Jim left the band, Pennywise was dead for me as I thought that Jim was half Pennywise (he's indeed), so I wasnt expecting so much greatness with Zoli. But I liked it a lot!

That's one nice song they put out.

Sounds like they're gonna put out a second "Reason To Believe", maybe the Zoli effect will make it better ?

the thing is:
what made Pennywise stand out from other bands of the genre?
the music/the sound? ...not really, there are enough bands in the genre that practically sound the same, especially since Pennywise became somewhat famous and a lot of bands have copied their style.
the lyrics? ...i don't think so either, the lyrics are far from being outstanding and i already had the feeling they were repeating themselves too often over the years.
the voice? ...YES, Jim's vocals made Pennywise what they are today and made them stand out from all the rest. It's basically the same with Ignite and Zoli.

what i'm trying to say is that it's good melodic hardcore/skate punk but it's not like i'm begging for more after this track ...in fact it puts me in the mood to play some old Pennywise records again.
if i was those guys i would have given the band a new name...

I totally understand you. It's goot punkrock but lost the entire vocal Pennywise roots with the change of the singer (obvious).

the main problem might be that they kept the name ...i probably wouldn't criticize them that much if they had changed the name. might sound stupid or superficial but i just can't help myself *shrugs*

I can hear the power of a Pennywise song in this one! Sure there's no Jim, but the sound and Fletcher's guitar work is still spot on! Zoli does a good job and takes Jim's place pretty well, but Pennywise will still never be the same. Like I said on youtube, I like to pretend to hear Jim's voice in the song rather that Zoli's

I understand what you mean! I have the feeling they kept the name only for the recognition it is having...! So then they don't have to put a big sticker written "EX-Pennywise" on every cd :P

youtube's down :(
"Look at your life, cause I am sorry but that is it. And you think you're better off this way. But I think it's sad that you can't see. And you think it's better off this way but when the pleasure fades one day, where will you turn and where will you run? When it's all through and there's no more fun will there be time to turn it around? When you look up and ask Him will you be too late or be found?"

I really liked it!
Of course I miss Jim's voice, but I also admit Zoli is doing a good job, I think it's a matter of "moving on"
and the greatest part is that the record is coming out on my birthday! :D
