On November 17, 2014, Fearless Records released their sixth installment of Punk Goes Pop.
Every year, Punk Goes Pop is a big release, that is greatly anticipated. Sometimes it lives up to its hype, sometimes it doesn't. This year, it didn't.
Over all, the album is just alright. Its nothing really incredible, for various reasons. Some songs, like "Turn Down For What" are not bad from the beginning so nobody is going to save it and make it better.
The only song that was honestly really good on this album was We Came As Roman's cover of "I Knew You Were Trouble" originally by Taylor Swift. They did a great job on this song, and it will most definitely be actually listened to, rather than skipped over in people's music libraries.
Other songs, such as "Royals", covered by Youth In Revolt", "Problem" covered by Set It Off and "Stay The Night" covered by State Champs are alright. On occasion they could get played, but over all, they're probably going to be skippeed over.
Its hard to say why Punk Goes Pop 6 just didn't live up to the hype. Maybe it was the songs that were chosen, or it was the exicution of the covers. Whatever it was, hopefully Punk Goes Pop 7 will be better. This album has recieved a two star rating. Its not awful, but its really not that great either.
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.
