Every year, people look forward to Fearless Records releasing their next installment of Punk Goes Pop, but this was a bit of a dissapointment.
If I'm perfectly honest, the only songs I reallyl iked on this album were, "Grenade" by Memphis May Fire, "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Mayday Parade featurings Vic Fuentes of Pierce The Veil, and "Call Me Maybe" by Upon This Dawning.
"Call Me Maybe" is a God awful song, but Upon This Dawning made it enjoyable. "Somebody That I Used To Know" is tolerable, but Mayday Parade did a good job. Adding Vic into the mix was an interesting, unexpected combination that took me a while to adjust to. "Grenade" is a beautiful song as it is, but when you have an incredible band like Memphis May Fire cover it, the song just gets ten times as amazing.
Because I only really like three songs, however, I have to give this album three stars. Punk Goes Pop 4, or really any of the ones previous to this are much better.
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.
