"The Wonder Years are often described as the new "flag bearers" of the pop-punk world. Cut from the same cloth as their power-chording predecessors, the sextet rely on the same, typical song progression that you might hear in a New Found Glory or Bayside tune. Immediately noticeable is the band's comfort level with a softer sound. The Wonder Years rarely took the car out of fifth gear on prior albums, relying on an insistent up-tempo sound and an almost constant yell from front man Dan "Soupy" Campbell. In contrast, The Greatest Generation opens with Campbell barely singing above a whisper in "There, There" before the snare hits in and the group is back to their old form. They lean on this easygoing melody multiple times throughout the album, and even have the bravado to utilize it in first single "Dismantling Summer," which is a great indication of the band's evolved style. The Wonder Years are at their best when the beat is fast and choruses are big. Such are "A Rain Dance in Traffic" and "Teenage Parents," the latter being an honest examination of growing up a lower-class household. The two are comparable in tempo and sound as they start fast with hefty power chords eventually giving way to the throaty vocals of Campbell. Heavy on the pop, both are standout tracks on the album. The musicianship may be strongest in "Chaser" and "Cul-De-Sac," songs that will leave you marveling at the band's growth from their past work. The transfer between tempos in each is effortless, while Campbell harmonizes perfectly with wonderfully harsh vocals of Matt Brasch in "Cul-De-Sec" before giving way to the high-pitched pipes of Josh Martin in "Chaser," whose ending yell is one of the album's highlights."
