I got the iTunes deluxe verison of this album, which features two acoustics from their debut, self titled album. Those are amazing, but so is the rest of the album. They certainly didn't dissapoint.
This album has the same sound as the first one, but much more meaning. Between tracks like, "Save Yourself", "Again", and "Gone", you can tell they really went through a lot while writing for this album. Of course though, it would not be a My Darkest Days album without a couple of sex songs. They supplied those with, "Casual Sex", "Love Crime", "Stutter", and "Nature Of The Beast."
Honestly, I have a hard time choosing a favorite. Its a toss up between, "Casual Sex", "Love Crime", and "Perfect." "Perfect" is really sad, but sweet. "I shouldn't have fallen in love with her. She's been nothing but trouble all along. I never should have fallen in love at all."
They've done it again, and made another fi
I actually wasn't overly impressed the first time I heard the lead single, "Reality In Routine", but first impressions aren't always correct. The more I listened, the more I liked it. I quickly realized that they had a sound that's a bit of a mixture of McFly, and Hit The Lights. That is something I enjoyed greatly.
This EP may have been short, but it was enough to show they have plenty of talent. Give it a year or so, I bet they'll be fairly well known. I enjoyed every song but my favorite was probably, "Idle Hands, Empty Pockets" or "Why Don't We Build Catherdral", for no reason really.
I feel I must give this five stars, as they're highly talented boys. If you like bands like Hit The Lights, McFly and the old All Time Low music, check them out. You'll be pleased.

The Used have been making incredible music since 2001, and while this album is much anticipated, I feel as if its all been done before. By them.
Before I even heard the songs, I felt that way. Some of the titles are highly similar even. "Kiss It Goodbye" reminded me of "Kissing You Goodbye", and many of the songs sounded overly familar. I feel like the lyrics were the only thing that changed.
You can tell they worked hard on this album,a nd I have a feeling Bert had gone through hell with someone close to him. Its obvious with songsl ike, "Moving On", "Getting Over You', and "Hurt No More."
I ddin't actually have a favorite, as no track really stood out to me. You can tell they had a lot of inspirtation, but I just didn't care for their final outcome. I give this album, three stars. For effort, mostly.
From "Falling In Hate", you're hooked! Or at least that was the case with me. I love the line in "Falling In Hate" that says, "Is it right, is it wrong? You and I don't belong."
What actually drew me to the album was their cover of "Bad Company". They did a fabulous job on the cover, and I loved that they added, "Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, blood for blood, we've all gotta die." It just sounds so amazing its easy to over look the somewhat depressing lyrics.
The biggest appeal for me to 5FDP is Ivan Moody's voice. He has one of the sexiest voices I've ever heard. To add to that, he brings a lot of passion to every song.
I'd have to say my favorites are "Falling In Hate", and "Bad Company", even though the entire album is amazing. I'm not sure what's not to like about this album. Their singer has a Godly voice, the lyrics are deep and powerful, and their instrumentals are strong and just as powerful as the lyrics.
If you like hardcore metal, don't pass up this album! It is the definition of hardcore metak. There's no other rating for this album than five stars.
Everyone knows the classic, "Thnks fr th Mmrs" and many other FOB songs. I think everyone knows the Fall Out Boy name, and I feel like this album (and From Under The Cork Tree) play a big factor in that.
If you ask me, songs like "Thnks fr the Mmrs", are not only beyond relatable, but a class of this generation. "Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great." Its so simple, but who hasn't felt like saying that to someone at some point. We've all been treated badly by someone, even if it didn't hurt us. That's one of my favorites, but so is "I'm Like A Lawyer By The Way I'm trying To get You Off." I always thought the title was irrelevant to the song, that was until I got a little bit older. Then I realized what they were really talking about. I suppose I should have realized sooner, seeing as they clearly say, "Me and you, sitting in a honeymoon. If I woke up next to you..." Its pretty obvious that sex was implied.
This was at the height of Fall Out Boy's career soI have to say this is a five star album. They did a marvelous job.
This album may be older, but its arguablly one of the best "alternative" albums of all time.
I feel anyone who says, "Sugar, We're Going Down", "Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying", "XO", and "Sophmore Slump Or Come Back Of The Year" are not some of the best "punk" songs out there, they are off their nuts.
Despite their long, somewhat irrelevant titles, this entire album is genius. If I was to pick a favorite, I'd probably have to go with "Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying". If you ask me, its true, things get said to much. To the point that they lose all meaning. On top of that, I love Pete's speech at the end, and the line, "It must be said again, that all us boys are just screaming into microphones for attention because we're just so bored."
As for Pete's speech he says, "From day one I talked about getting out, but not forgetting about how all my worst fears are letting out. He said why put a new address on the same old loneliness? When breathing just passes the time, until we just get old and die. Now talking's just a waste of breath, and living's just a waste of death and why put a new address on the same old loneliness? And this is you and me, and me and you, until we've got nothing left."
Its basically a drawn out way of saying don't waste your life because then you're going to die after barely living.
On that note, I give this album five stars, as I feel it is timeless.
Pretty much everyone knows the hit singe, "Over You" and the songs, "Home" and "Its Not Over." It was "Over You" that drew me to the album, and I am personally glad I listened to it.
Every song has a lot of meaning to them. Whether its getting over someone, getting to go home, fixing something that was messed up, or toher things, the meanings are there.
At the risk of being somewhat cliche', my favorite is "Over You". Its got personal meaning to me, and its beyond catchy. Not to mention, its the first song I ever heard by Daughtry.
Its all around a great album, go check it out. I give this album five stars.
First off, let me say that Ed Sloan's voice is amazing! Second off, the whole album is very deep and emotional. I feell ike Crossfade deserves more fame than they have.
I reallyl ike the message behind the majority of the songs. "Washing The World Away" is all about forgetting the world. That's something we all do from time to time.
Every song is amazing, but my personal favorite is "Breathing Slowly". Its just a beautiful song, that's really my only reason. "And I breathe slowly, like you said to do when I had lost control. My head spins, from God's wind, that carries you away from me." It sounds somewhat sad, but its pretty.
This album is very heartfelt and deep
While I am generally hard on all female rock singers, Alexa does well. Plus, I like their screamer's voice a lot. That's highly important, seeing as the majority of their songs have a lot of screaming in them.
The tracks that stood out the most to me were, "Darling" and "Give You My All." "Darling" has always stood out to me because of the opening, which is, "Don't lie to me now!" being screamed. As for "Give You My All.", its just very sweet. "I want to give you everything, I'll give you my all. Because you gave me, you gave me your lips, a gentle kiss. The medicine to cure my pain." Its very sweet and I love it.
