Set Your Goals is one of the bands that popped up a couple of years ago combining pop-punk with hardcore breakdowns like New Found Glory used to. Unlike say, A Day To Remember though, Set Your Goals actually managed to pull it off in a convincing way.

“Burning At Both Ends” is already album number three and on it they continue down the same road with bouncy rhythms, ridiculously catchy melodies and that dual vocal attack they truly excel at. Kicking things off in high gear with “Cure For Apathy”, they never look back after that as they work their way through eleven more songs. Sure, things start to blend together after a while, but the songs work and show a confident band who seem to be all about having a good time.
