I already loved Walk Away, and the rest of the album mostly hangs in good company with it. Everything about the overall sound - loud drums, aggressive but largely undistorted guitars, Alex's voice - works to the songs' advantage in my opinion. They put this sound to work in working across a diverse range of song styles, and greatly to their credit, absolutely all of the ones they tackle are done well - dance-rock (The Fallen, Do You Want To, What You Meant, Outsiders), upper-tempo alternative rock (This Boy, You're the Reason I'm Leaving, You Could Have It So Much Better), tempo-shifting combinations of the two (Well That Was Easy, I'm Your Villain), a balls-out sonic blast (Evil and a Heathen), and especially softer songs (aforementioned Walk Away, Eleanor Put Your Boots On, Fade Together).

Note that I've just referenced all twelve tracks by name; suffice to say, I think You Could Have It So Much Better is great.
