You can imagine how fast these songs are. $parechange is just speedy nice-guy pop-punk. The guitars on this disc are amazingly good for a pop punk band. They also happen to sound a little bit like MxPx. Exit 111 is really slow and a boring sounding surf punk song that is instrumental. And the seasons may change boarders on being a Indy Rock song, but it isn’t because there are fast parts in the song. Most of the songs are very emotionally written, and many people may not hear the true meaning through all the guitar noise.
