By far, this is the best album All Time Low has made yet. While their 2009
album, Nothing Personal was great, I feel this one is All Time Low's
true sound. The entire album is fun and upbeat, with the pop-rock tones and
There's a bit of a pattern with the album, most of the songs are about relationships. Not sappy love songs either, more like the true love songs. Take "Forget About It" for example. At one point, the lead singer, Alex Gaskarth, says, "You know, there are some days where I really feel like this could work. Like we're finally gonna get this right. Then there are days like today, when you make me want to tear my fucking hair out."
That's a true love story there, because you're not always going to be happy with someone all the time, and there will be days that you'll just want to tear your hair out because of them. You're not always going to be happy with whoever it is tou love, but yet you love them just enough that you can't forget about it and move on.
My favorite track, however, is "Time Bomb". Because it is all about wanting someone around even if you know it'll go wrong in the end. That's also real life, sometimes you just want to live in the moment. Not worry about the future, but to be happy in the present. "It was like a time bomb set in motion. We knew that we were destined to explode, and if I had to pull you out of the wreckage you know I'm never gonna let you go." I just found that lyric to be very adorable and sweet. You'll still save them, even though you know in the end everything is going to explode and shatter.
Throughout the entire album, Alex sounds very passionate about the words he's singing, like he's truely enjoying himself. Which is a big thing for me, if they're not into it, they probably don't want to be singing what they are. Most of the album is about love, but a few tracks like, "I Feel Like Dancing" are about going out and having fun with your friends.
There's only one slower song on the album. The rest of this twelve track album is very fun and danceable. "Daydream Away", when you stop to think about it, is kind of a sad song. Its about daydreaming about someone you don't have the courage to go
up to. Pining away for someone, but being too self-conscious to take the risk
and see if you stand a chance of dating them. Still a good song, regardless.
If you wish to hear All Time Low at their best,
defentily get this album. I'm sure you won't regret it. I myself give it five
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.
