When I first heard their cover of "Rolling In The Deep", I decided I had to hear more. I would say I'm impreesed, though I feel Jason's voice gets drowned out by most of the music in the title track, "Lucky Street".
Jason stuck to the familar pop rock sound like Mayday Parade has, which is something I liked. There's not a single track I dislike, but my absolute favorite is "Any Other Heart."
"Any Other Heart" is honestly sort of a sad song, I can't quite explain what its about, but its vrey catchy both lyrically and musically.
Its all around good, so I say give it a shot. I give this album five stars.
From the first track, "Love Like Woe", you're captivated by Jordan's infectious pop rock sound. There's just something about the way he sings that just makes the soul smile. As strange as that may sound, that's how I describe The Ready Set. Music that can make the soul smile.
I'm not sure that I have a favorite song, but what I really like about The Ready Set is he doesn't stick to one genre. He plays pop, R & B-esque, rock, just a little bit of everything. It makes him stand out.
Every track is amazing, you can tell he puts a lot into his music, and he is really having fun with it. That's an important factor in music, even though the artist's amusement isn't always obvious.
I also don't totally see the comparrison to NeverShoutNever. Jordan has more of a pop soound, while Chris is more acoustic or at least lighter sounding. Only song I even see a similarity in is "Melody's Song."
Its a great album! If you're looking for something fun to listen to, turn to this album. You won't be disappointed. Some of the tracks that stood out to me were, "Upsets And Downfalls", "Limits", "More Than Alive", and of course, "Love Like Woe."
Defentily do not pass up this album, its
When I first heard Sleeping With Sirens, I didn’t like them. His voice just rubbed me the wrong way. That changed after I heard their cover of “Fuck You” from Punk Goes Pop 4, so I decided to give their music a chance. First impressions aren’t always right, and in the case of this album, it was definitely wrong.
While I feel the first track, “Do It Now, Remember It Later” was a bit repetitive lyric wise. “If you can’t hang” picked up a lot, though. Its all about meeting people that aren’t right for you, or can’t stay around. The way its all put together tells the tale of people entering your life and leaving again several times through out your life.
My favorite track though, would have to be “All My Heart”. To me, it sounds almost like a love letter to someone. Simply saying, “You still have all of my heart.”, it is incredibly sweet!
Give this album a chance, once you adjust to his voice, I’m sure you’ll love it. The lyrics are great, Kellin sounds really passionate and the most is great too. I give this album five stars.
Normally, I do not like female singers unless they are a solo artist who sings pop music. Not in this case though, Taylor sounds so much like Hayley Williams of Paramore, and has so much passion that there is nothing to dislike.
Every track is great, and upbeat. One of my favorite tracks would be “Kiss Me Again.” or “The Worst Thing About Me.” I love one line in “The Worst Thing About Me” that says, “…and if you want me now, I’ll make your life a living hell.” There’s something about how its sung, all happy and what not, that makes me smile.
Then there’s “Kiss Me Again.” That song is all around adorable! Its really all about a good relationship, and things you want to do with someone just because they’re there. “Would you hold me and kiss me again? Underneath the moon light, you’re more than a friend. I knew it from the first night. Hold me, feel my heartbeat, put your arms around me, and kiss me again.” Its just so cute!
Even if you feel like me when it comes to female singers, give this album, and their debut EP, Guaranteed To Disagree a chance. I give this album five stars.
New Medicine’s debut album, Race You To The Bottom has shown that they have some seriously talent and potential to go far.
That being said, I feel that they could have done better with this album. I am not saying that this is a bad album, just that it could use improvement. There’s only a few tracks that really stood out to me, “Rich Kids”, “Little Sister” and “Race You To The Bottom.”
I like “Rich Kids” because its got a different feel to it, almost like 3Oh!3 with a rock sound to it. Plus it says, “I’m not a rich kid, maybe that’s a good thing. Ain’t got shit but I got this far.” I don’t want to sound offensive to anyone who is well off, but poor kids actually have to earn their stuff. They learn the value of a dollar easier.
As for “Little Sister” , its almost haunting. I keep wondering who died! “Do your wings fit good? Can you fly?” He also goes on to say its like someone’s watching over him. If his little sister did die, that’s really sad! I honestly can’t make up my mind if I like this song or not.
This is a decent album, so I give it three stars. Its all catchy, but I feel like it could have been done better. I just can’t seem to say why exactly.
Nickelback’s seventh studio album was much anticipated, or at least by me it was. With this album, Nickelback changed their sound ever so slightly, making it a bit heavier.
This album stood out from the rest of their albums, but it wouldn’t be a Nickelback album without a sex song. In the past, they have brought us hits like, “Animals”, “S.E.X.”, “Next Go Round”, “Figured You Out” and others. For this one, they brought us, “Midnight Queen” and “Gonna Get Me Some.”
I have trouble choosing a favorite though, several tracks come to mind. “Bottoms Up”, for its very catchy beat, “Midnight Queen”, for how straight forward it is. “She’s gonna lick my pistol clean.” It surprised me at how obvious it was, but its put together well.
There is also, “Lullaby”, its such an inspirational song. Chad is singing about someone who has been worn down to the point of cutting and thoughts of suicide. He simply is saying don’t do anything because you’re not done yet, but everyone’s felt that empty at some point. I found it to be a very needed song in this society. I feel it could save lives if people heard it in time.
I also adore “Trying Not To Love You”, its all the things I know I’ve said before, and so have a lot of people. “I’m trying not to love you, only goes so far. Trying not to need you, it tears me apart.”
I can’t really say anything bad about this album, the only one I don’t really care for is “When We Stand Together”, just because of the music put behind it. The lyrics are great, what’s not to love about a song singing about how we could help the world? I just don’t care for the music.
I don’t see what’s to dislike about this album, go get it! I give this album five stars.
From the first track, “Do I”, which is all about questioning what to do next, to the very sweet final track, “Don’t Forget About Me”, Damage is one hell of an album.
They rock it out on every track, and every single one has very well written lyrics. I love every single track, there’s nothing bad about it at all. The track that stood out the most to me though, was “Don’t Forget About Me”. Its one of those songs that make your mind go straight to someone in your past, if there was somebody.
Patrick is beautifully pleading for someone to never forget about him, because he’ll never forget about them. “Don’t forget about me, no matter what you do. Don’t forget about me, I’m always here for you. Don’t forget about what we had, our time here might be through. Don’t forget about me, and I’ll always remember you.” This is one of those songs you’d send to someone hoping they’d get the message.
Other outstanding tracks on the album are, “Original Sin”, “Bounce”, “Beg”, “Pride”, and “Get Paid”. If you’ve never heard this band, you’re missing out. Emphatic will be going very far in the future. I give this album five stars and highly recommend it. I can’t say enough good about it.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
