The Screenshots' new album no longer sounds like a mindless success mindset. This has to do with the fact that the band had to learn with their last album "2 Million Turnover with a Simple Idea" that turnover alone is not profit. And so the latent permanent irony of the early years makes way for a different form of truthfulness.
