Performer Notes
  • Sum 41: Sirbiznatch, Cope, Stevo Dirty Poo, The Honorable Sir Captain Brownsound Of The First Airborne, Regiment, Heavyweight Champion PHD.
  • Recorded at Avatar Studios, New York, New York.
  • Audio Mixers: Ed Krautner; Andy Wallace; Tom Lord-Alge.
  • Recording information: Avatar Studios, New York, NY.
  • Photographer: Jonathan Mannion.
  • Often lumped unfairly into the same pop-punk bag as Green Day, and sometimes even dismissed as nothing more than A Blink-182 rip-off, Sum 41 definitively separates itself from the pack with DOES THIS LOOK INFECTED?. Sporting a level of sheer musicianship that dwarfs that of the aforementioned groups, the band powers through all 12 tracks with a machine-like efficiency and a thrash metalesque knack for rhythmic precision and complexity. In fact, there are instrumental passages here that could easily pass for MASTER OF PUPPETS-era Metallica or even vintage Anthrax.
  • To be sure, there are the usual heaping helpings of catchy melodies and Descendents-approved high harmonies throughout, but DOES THIS LOOK INFECTED? reveals an increased emphasis on the punk half of the punk-pop equation. Echoes of pioneering hardcore/metal hybrid bands like Killing Time, Leeway, and Bad Brains abound, and the record consequently has a tougher, more substantial feel than any of Sum 41's previous efforts.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/12/02, p.93) - "...there's an increased emphasis on metal....these songs aren't as slap-happy as they first seem..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/29/02, pp.101-2) - "...Sum 41 more than hold their own against the current competition....There's an underlying metallic vibe here with lots of meaty riffs and galloping tempos, touches of hardcore, an even a bit of rapping..." - Rating: B-

Q (01/03, p.113) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Sleek, pummelling anthems of teenage joy and confusion..."
