Acceptance - Black Lines to Battlefields EP

Despite having a cover that looks like it was designed for the naked apes from Jersey Shore, Black Lines to Battlefields is an excellent EP.  Acceptance stands well above their pop punk peers because they don't sound like another New Found Glory ripoff (which describes half the bands on Drive-Thru Records). They actually have a bit of a Jimmy Eat World circa Chase This Light, which is a nice touch. "Permanent" is the best song on this EP, but everything else is also fantastic. If you ever want to know what good pop punk sounds like, this is it.
