It's difficult to find new things to say about bands like New Found Glory. Blink , Sum 41, Bowling for Soup, and other purveyors of punk-lite occupy the same musical territory and just one quick listen to Sticks and Stones reveals that it's all been done, and heard, before. Yet complaining that this Florida quartet is one-dimensional is like whining about a soap opera or a Hollywood blockbuster not being realistic. The fact is, bands like New Found Glory serve a purpose to an audience of shopping mall teens who wish to appear anarchic by trading in the Backstreet Boys and Britney for guitar bands playing melodic, chugging riff-rock that weighs in on such meaty subjects as school, relationship angst, and summertime. Expecting bands like New Found Glory to come up with anything different is akin to going into Burger King and expecting to be served haute cuisine after ordering a Whopper. Yes, it's not exactly innovative, new or exciting but even the most stony-faced music critic with the hardest of hearts would have to admit there's a certain charm about Sticks and Stones.

We caught up with guitarist and chief songwriter Chad Gilbert, and set him the challenge of ranking their eight studio albums — from worst to best. So for me personally, Catalyst is all over the place. Like I said, I think some of our best songs are on that record, but the record as a whole is number seven for me.
