5-0 out of 5 stars Great Cd
1. Little Things - very rap-ish but still catchy, the verses are better than the chorus - 5/5
2. Waldorfworldwide - this takes time to grow on you, very fast vocals and a catchy chorus - 4/5
3. Motivation Proclamation - sheer brilliance, nice melody in the verses and a rocking chorus, overplayed but i still love it - 5/5
4. East Coast Anthem - amazingly catchy, another favorite - 5/5
5. Festival Song - very good punk song, great instruments and vocals - 5/5
6. Complicated - sort of rap-like, still ok but not a favorite - 3/5
7. Seasons - a ballad, nothing special, the lyrics may seem corny - 3/5
8. I Don't Wanna Stop - great song, i love the vocals - 5/5
9. I Heard You - ok, a basic punk song, the verses end funny with that line "i get the point" it just sounds strange, still its ok - 3/5
10. Click - very catchy, great lyrics - 5/5
11. Walk By - average, punky - 3/5
12. Let Me Go - same as walk by but still decent - 3/5
13. Screamer - a ballad but its moving, and always fun to hear - 4/5
14. Change - another poppy ballad but the vocals are done well - 5/5
15. Thank You Mom - a hidden track about a minute after Change, it is a great acoustic piece and shows that they are nice guys under the "im so punky" attitude. 5/5

5-0 out of 5 stars Deep, Meaningful.....and Amazing....
First of all, I just started liking this type of music. I never listened to a punk/rock group no more than 2 months ago. At First I heard Good Charlotte's new cd (The Young and the Hopeless), and it really didn't click with me. But then my brother kept playing it and I fell in love with "Lifestyles of the rich and the famous". So i went out and bought that cd. And after that I heard they had a self-titled cd. I listened to my brothers copy, and the next day, I was out buying a copy for my own collection. The songs are extraordinarily written. Especially "Little Things", "Seasons", and "Thank You Mom". Good Charlotte really knows how to write powerful and touching lyrics. They could write an amazing sad and meaningful song, and then go and do a fun, upbeat happy song. Good Charlotte is excellent, and even though I just started listen to punk/rock, they are by far the best group I've heard. Go out and buy this cd, don't burn it, that's cheap. Give them a chance, you will love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars if i could give it a zero, i would.
okay, i know you either hate this cd, or love it, but im going to judge it with all the bands faults aside (like them not being punk, and being sellouts). first, someone said this is emo, which it is deffintly not. just because you sing about girls or relationships, does not make you emo. think of what you are saying. bands like atreyu, who are great hardcore, sing about being cry babies, and girls too (A Song For The Optimist).
Now, to the music. There is some creative parts in this cd, but they are totally shaded out by the typical, MTV-trash-non-creativeness pop punk. it is quickly repetive, with similar riffs and drumming. dont even get me started on the lyrics...geez my 13 year old cousin can write more intelligent lyrics than this. one reviewer said "the songs are about benji and joels lives"....wow...like nobodys EVER sung about lifes problems, joys, ups, downs, or life in general, before. Basicly, and in short, this is yet another display of the music scenes mediocrecy today. okay, guess i couldnt review this cd without bashing on this band and thier suckiness. bands that actually have talent shoould be dominating the airwaves, not your so called "metal"-linkin park, trapt....those bands suck. listen to killswitch, as i lay dying, children of bodom, older in flames,....yea, bands with talent. bottom line - if you like pop punk, or punk in general (which this cd is not), listen to MXPX, millencolin, goldfinger, NOFX, bad religion, all those r ten times better than GC will ever be. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic band...let's hope they stay that way
When my sister saw New Found Glory in San Diego last year, she told me about their awesome opening act, Something Corporate. So I downloaded a few of their songs and was blown away. After that, I knew I had to have the CD. So now I own it and I love it so much. Their songs overflow with emotion and a true love for music. One of the best tracks on the Cd is the single, "I Woke Up in a Car." Also good are "Punk Rock Princess," "Hurricane," and "Fall." This is emo at its finest, with meaningful lyrics and quality music. Andrew's piano playing, incorporated with the guitars of a traditional punk band make Something Corportate a unique brand, a nice change from the carbon copy releases we as consumers have been inundated with in the past couple of years.

In closing, I would just like to say that I hope beyond hope that they don't pull a New Found Glory/Blink 182/Green Day and stray away from their roots. The three I just mentioned found success, then were forced to put out cookie-cutter releases to please Teeny Bopper America. Something Corporate is one of the first real things to come out in a while and I hope that it stays that way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than I anticipated
Maybe my musical tastes have changed since Something Corporate releases the "Audioboxer EP" At that time I was listening to more hardcore punk along the lines of Quicksand and Far, however this cd, "Leaving Through the Window", just sounds so good. Something Corporate never had false illusions of being a punk band and they play staright up pop. However, the mix of piano, power guitar chords. and stylistic variety sets them apart. The album boasts incredibly catchy melodies, I wanted to learn the lyrics immeadiately so I could sing along. Although each song is different, each contains a memorable soaring refrain and excellent harmony. On the "audioboxer EP", the lead singer's voice at times sounded strained. However, the vocal quality and overall musical quality has improved since then. Even though "Leaving Through the Window" only boasts 8 new tracks, the remixed versions of old songs have added to and changed for the better. Standout tracks on a standout album include: I want to save you, I woke up in a car, Fall, Drunk girl, You're gone, and the old favorites Punk rock princess and hurricane. Something Corporate creates wholly original and fun music out of tired, annoying genre. Looking for a new alternative? Buy this!

1-0 out of 5 stars Purely Derivative
Something Corporate, an outfit who's namesake is much more descriptive than ironic, is one of a host of pop-punk bands achieving popular notoriety from angst-ridden teens and pre-teens searching for alternatives to the post-rock and hip-hop dominating radio airplay today. It's all rather homogenous and ridiculous, but Leaving Through The Window is particularly bad, however, for the simple fact that it is formulaic in its approach and lacks any sort of musical vision. It is as if Something Corporate merely incorporated all of the poppier elements of every other pop-punk release in the past five years, crafted songs around the typical material (you know, the kind of stuff that thirteen year old girls write about in their diaries), and called it an album.

There are so many of these bands floating around out there in the wasteland we call the pop culture landscape, it's maddening. It is little more than image BASED, corporatized, formulaic trash, a pop-culture afterthought, of the worst kind. The fact that the genre is so saturated means should mean that it's ripe for progression and experementation, not so with this crowd. For all of the angst and whining in Leaving Through The Window, there isn't even a HINT of post-punk (or profundity for that matter) progressivism. Leaving Through The Window is purely derivative, if you've heard any of the slew of (emo-leaning) guitar pop bands out there, then you've heard it (probably a thousand times over).

There was a time time when punk rock minimalism, heavily influenced by country/rockabilly and pre-British invasion rock, was progressive musically and lyrically. It was challenging and edgy, written about and for the working-class; it was a statement against the arrogance and pretentiousness of prog. rock. I miss those days, but alas, the anger, social awareness, and progressivism of the punk rock genre are no longer present, and what is left after the smoke clears is image. Leaving Through The Window, like all other albums in the genre is a collection of hook-laden guitar pop songs accessible to the armies of dissatisfied suburban kids who don't like their parents. AGAIN, Something Corporate is PURELY DERIVATIVE, and that's not too good in a substance-less genre. My advice: if you're interested in this whole punk-thing, give the Ramones, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Patti Smith, the Buzzcocks, and Television a listen; if, however, you are content to leave punk well alone and listen to modern guitar pop, stick with artists like Weezer, Green Day, and the like they are truely pioneers in the genre (not that that means much anyway). ...

Editorial Review

Iceland's answer toLimp Bizkit,Korn, andLinkin Park,Quarashi's rock-rap-industrial hybrid usually makes for bad rap and even worserock, but the mix works on Jinx for reasons unknown. The group's FredDurst rap-metal shtick ("Stick 'Em Up," "Weirdo") is a bit tired, but itsBeastieBoys-style eclecticism ("Mr. Jinx," "Baseline") flips a catchy cornucopia ofhorn, guitar, and xylophone samples. Certainly, when Quarashi pull out all oftheir experimental stops on "Tarfur," a percussion-heavy funk track that'srecorded in Icelandic, or "Dive In," a techno ballad crooned by the band'sjack-of-all-trades Hössi Olafsson, the results are fun. Move overBjörk andSigur Rós,there's a new innovator in town. --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars NOT LIMP BIZKIT, RAGE
ok, i just heard of Quarashi the other day on MTV2. The first thing i thought was Beastie Boys. The second thing i thought was mixed with "Rage against the Machine". yes, that's right, this band sounds nothing like Limp Bizkit, it's painfully obvious to me that they sound like Rage and Beasties. With that, this band f---ing rocks. I swore to god that if i heard another rap-rock song i was going to riot. the thing abotu this band is they're not a nu-metal band. most of the rock-rap bands are nu-metal, which means they're depressing, dull, and boring. this band is anything but that. they've got the melodic/funk side of the beastie boys, and the hard rock side of rancid and rage. i'm not saying this is anything too original, cuz it's not, but this band can really pull off a Beastie Boys version 2.0 extremely well. I can't wait to get the actual CD, tho i hear the albums released in Iceland are more raw sounding, and not as produced. i wish i could get an import. oh well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well, I don't think it's "rap rock"
I listen to many different things, because it makes me look sophisticated. So when I picked this CD up and took it home, I played it and after "Stick 'Em Up" I kind of squinted. "Stick 'Em Up" is followed by this strange sounding jazz-sample type song. A song which had nothing "rock" about it. There are semi-metallic songs on this record, but is it really fair to call this band "rap-rock", they do rap, and even rock sometimes, but songs like numbers 2, 4, 12, 7, 5 and others don't really reflect a desire to push the whole rap-rock enevelope. Now, songs like Baseline, F*** You Puto and stuff have hard rock guitars in them, but I notice little things, like the band hardly ever uses (or SOUNDS like it uses) real drums. There are spots, but not really, even though one of the guys is listed as playing "drums". Basically, this is a mostly rap record, and you can trust me when I say that the fact these guys are white, it hardly detracts from their ability to make your head bob. In fact, one of the rappers (I'm not sure which one), SORT OF sounds like Zack de la Rocha, but this is clearly no Rage record. I really liked most of the songs on this CD, even being not that much into rap. Quarashi takes rap and makes it good. I have read some comparisons to the Beastie Boys and what not, but this band doesn't sound like the Beastie Boys any more than Celine Dion, other than of course the fact that they rap. I'm not exactly sure where people get stuff like "rap-rock" and Beastie Boys, because while some rock is involved, it's not really something you could mosh to, you know what I mean? It's not rap-rock, and definitely not Rage, it's . . . . . . . Quarashi, they just be them and it works.

5-0 out of 5 stars Icelandic Creature
this record was able to meet to the standards of the tactics where listeners would get a chance to hear what these people are .
the whole cd was incredible , when i had first bought this cd i thought that these people would fail in music but after listening to it i have regreted what i had said . Quarashi uis hevay , includes some elements of jazz and quiet a bot of nu metal but this cd is good overall ... Read more

Editorial Review

Sticks and Stones, the third record from Florida emo-punkers New Found Glory, might wear its broken heart on its sleeve, but that doesn't mean it has to pretend to be mature. No, Blink-182's first choice of opening band have a firm grasp of the puerile: Sticks and Stones churns out dumb punk thrills at such a breakneck pace, you'd swear they were going out of fashion. The chugging "It's Been a Summer" does Blink as well as Travis, Mark, and Tom do themselves, while "Head-On Collision" displays the group's tender emo side, frontman Jordan Pundik smarting at a vicious relationship spat. "It feels like I'm bruised and broken / From our head-on collision," he sobs, as guitars crunch and blunder madly in the background. Thing is, although some of the tunes are spot on--particularly, the lovestruck "My Friend's Over You" and the moshpit-friendly "Something I Call Personality"--there's little to radically distinguish New Found Glory from their peers. If you're a diehard pop-punk fan, you've probably got records like this--and better--in your collection already. --Louis Pattison ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD
Sticks and stones is definately one of new found glory's best. The lyrics are amazing, and are much more mature than NFG's past CDs. Jordan Pundik (lead singer) expands his writing to a subjects heavier then girls, such as a death in the family, finding strength in yourself, and coming out of a tougb experience for the better. Many of the songs however are still about relationships. Guitar work done by Steve Klein and Chad Gilbert is still awesome, as usual. NFG's bassist, Ian Grushka gets a little help from Blink 182's Mark Hoppus on "Something I Call Personality". Drummer Cyrus Bolooki really shows off his talent on this album. Altough Sticks and Stones isn't as catchy as their self-titled CD, Sticks and Stones will draw you in, and you won't be able to stop listening. Song highlights on the album are "Understatement", "It's been a Summer", and "Singled Out". My personal favorites are "Forget My Name", "The Great Houdini", and "The Story so Far". If you don't own Sticks and Stones, then you need to get your butt over to your favorite CD store and pick it up!!

5-0 out of 5 stars NFG'S best work to date...
Wow. Even those who may have shunned off the self-titled CD may want to have a listen to "Sticks and Stones." NFG has scored again, with 12 incredibly well-written tracks, with the standard infectious melodies and lyrical content.

Jordan still loves to write about girls, but these songs show a maturity that lacked on the self titled, "Nothing Gold Can Stay" and "It's All About The Girls." The guitar tones on this album are greatly improved, as is the guitar work of Chad and Steve in general. Ian's bass work is also quite impressive this time around. Jordan's voice is at it's prime, and even edgy in spots.

Guest appearances from Mark Hoppus, and members of Alkaline Trio among others are a cool addition to an already great cd. While the same "fun" element from their previous cd's is here...the songwriting on "Sticks and Stones" is NFG's best...no question about it.

My favorite tracks so far are "Head on Collision", "The Story So Far", and the single, "My Friends Over You." However, there is not a weak track to be found here.

NFG fans will not be dissapointed, and those who haven't ever picked up a NFG release...this is a great place to start.

Good work, guys!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Band Ever, Has the Best CD Ever!
Wow, New Found Glory is my favorite band ever, and I have owned this cd for about 5 months now and I still am finding terrific songs on it. Once you think you've found a favorite another great song pops up. The lyrics in the songs are very good and proboly the best i've ever heard (besides Rufio). Every song on the CD is good, and the quality of the sound is good as well. New Found Glorys done some good stuff, and it's hard to pick a favorite but this cd is their best. I would recomend buying the special 2 disc edition of this masterpice, because you'll get 2 new previously unrealeased songs that are very good, and get other music by "Finch", "the Starting Line", and this new band called "H20". But what ever version you get you'll surely be satasfied because its the NFG one that counts. If you like New Found Glory you'll proboly also like "Rufio" and "Coheed and Cambria". I can't wait for another CD from this great band. ... Read more

Editorial Review

This Santa Barbara band may look like The Jam, but they sound like surf punks with English degrees. Named after seven lesbians who lived across the hall from singer-guitarist Tim Pagnotta and dubbed themselves "sugarcult," this band fill the airwaves with their own brand of clever wretchedness, constantly veering between hardcore and pop punk, attempting to be all things to all listeners. And they come pretty close with their aerobic, bombastic drumming, nimble guitar work, and Pagnotta's sneering vocals. Luckily, they listened to enough Green Day and Elvis Costello to put a witty face on their spewing invective about dislocation, alienation, and tales of love gone bad that lands just this side of insincere.--Jaan Uhelszki ...

11.I Changed My Name 4/5 good song.

12hidden track (Note:it is called underwear)1/5 not a really good way to end the cd.

5-0 out of 5 stars pretty darn good
mmhm. now i see that comparos to the ever endless line of post punk power pop not so good bands (blink, sum 41, new found glory) are very populer. i see them and i dont. yeah...they have that mentality. but they inject a couple gallons of talent into the deal. 70's originality, insightful lyrics, good instrumentation, rock radio sounds. very listenable, overall. there isn't a looser in this crowd...but as with most albums there are standouts. now...my favorite is pretty girl. the guitars, cracking vocals, powerful lyric work, and so forth mix to create an addictive song. i changed my name is also balladish but stands out for its oomph. stuck in america, bouncing off the walls, you're the one, lost in you are also super. if not A+, the rest of the songs are all really good, as well. so all that ... said, buy this cd. i dont think it would even disappoint the most staunch of power pop haters...as long as they have an open mind going into it. otherwise they dont deserve to know about this 40 minute package o goodness. buy it you won't regret it. i promise.

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD is one of the best I've ever listened to.
The songs are awesome, and, unlike some other CDs, there is variation between the songs, they don't all sound the same.

If you like music AT ALL, buy this CD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Your MEST up if you don't like these guys!
After I heard one song off the album, Cadillac, I was hooked. Than I listened to Drawing Board, and that became one of my instant all time favorite songs. I picked up my guitar right away and tried to learn these two songs. The album is great, every song on it is put together real well, and the band has a real postive sound, very enjoyable to listen too. I've listen to the whole record so many times since I bought it, it's great record. If you get the chance see them in concert, they are awsome!!! I saw them with Unwritten Law and Sugarcult in Ventura and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. The band members are really cool too, I got a chance to say hello to couple of them and they were real tight guys. So do yourself a favor and do Mest a favor and by the CD it is definetly worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars An album worth your $$!
In case you've never heard Mest before, you'd like them if you like Good Charlotte, Goldfinger, New Found Glory, Blink-182, MxPx, Sugarcult, Student Rick... bands of that kin. Onto the album... to be perfectly honest, I was disappointed the first time I popped Destination Unknown into my CD player. On first listen it was not nearly as catchy as a whole as Mest's second album, Wasting Time. The songs that immediately caught my ear were (the obvious) the first single Cadillac, Without You, It's Over, Misunderstood and Drawing Board (an insatiably catchy and awesome song, also a re-release originally off of Wasting Time). I was unimpressed and sort of threw the CD aside for a few weeks until a Mest concert rolled around. About a week before the show, I decided to give the album a second chance. I'm so glad I did. This album is well worth any pop punk listener's money. Mest is one of my top 3 favorite bands. They put on an amazing show, have catchy tunes, and have lyrics with substance. Hard to come across these days- fun music with real lyrics. Anyone can relate to songs like the CD's opener, Opinions. I also like the diversity, with the reggae inspired Reason and the borderline love song Chelsea (which I absolutely love!). I honestly love every song on the album except Another Day, and even that's not that bad. I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes pop punk. If you liked Wasting Time and Mo Money Mo 40oz, you'll like Destination Unknown. Mest found a great sound and thank goodness they're sticking to it. All these bands come out feeling the pressure of a follow up album, and they go changing their whole sound... Not Mest though!! You might need to listen to it twice to really get hooked, but it's definitely worthy investment.

5-0 out of 5 stars they rock
Mest is an awesome band. I think they live up to what real punk is. Go buy their albums its way worth the money! ... Read more

This is an awesome band and awesome cd! You will love it! I can't wait till their next full cd comes out! Here's a song by song review...

1. Up & Go- This is a great song. An excellent way to start off the cd. It's a nice song to tap your foot to. (9/10)

2. Given the Chance- Another good song. The lyrics and vocals are very good. (8/10)

3. Leaving- This song grew on me. I like it a lot now. Very good drumming and vocals in this song. (9/10)

4. The Best of Me- You have probably heard this song. This is definitely the best song on the cd, and I can't get tired of it. Great instruments and vocals. An all around great song! (10/10)

5. A Goodnight's sleep- Personally not one of my favorites. This song depends on what mood you are in. But still not a bad song.(7/10)

6. Almost there, Going Nowhere- Wow. Another great song! This was the first song I heard by TSL. Great instruments, great vocals, great everything. (10/10)

7. Cheek to Cheek- Not a horrible song. The middle part is good to rock out to. But personally not one of my favorites. (7/10)

8. Hello Houston- Wow. I love this song! Great guitaring and drumming! If you like #4, and #6, you'll love this one. (10/10)

9. Decisions, Decisions- This one grew on me. I like it a lot now. Very good drumming, lyrics, and vocals. But not one of my favorites. (9/10)

10. Saddest Girl Story- This one also grew on me. It's one of my favorites now. Very good vocals and lyrics. (10/10)

11. Left Coast Envy- Once again, this one grew on me. This song tells a story in a sense. Very thought out lyrics, and good drumming and guitaring. Great song. (9/10)

12. The Drama Summer- I don't like acoustic songs very much. So I didn't like this one. But this is the song for you if you like acoustic songs. (7/10

13. This Ride- A great way to finish the cd! I like this song a lot. Good drumming and guitaring, and also good lyrics. Not one of my favorites, but still very good. (8.5/10)

All in all, an excellent cd that you should buy! If you don't like some of the songs at first, listen to them over and over and you should start to like them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pop Punk - But definitely still punk
This band is a punk band....but a pop punk band not that there's anything wrong with pop punk some great bands are pop punk. To clasify Good Charlotte and Simple Plan as pop punk means you are a dumbass they are simply pop. If you say good charlotte and simple plan (they don't deserve to be capitalized) are any type of punk then you are a failure in life and you deserve to be shot (I'll do it myself).So here's an analysis of they're cd
1."Up and Go" 5/10 fun song but get's boring after a while
2."Given The Chance" 2/10 In my opinion the worst song on the CD...it just lacks what it really needs
3."Leaving" 8/10 Great song...need I say more? haha it's more...neat then the WHOSO(old cd) version
4."The Best Of Me" 7/10 Good Song But I don't think it's the single best song on the cd
5."A Goodnight's Sleep" 9/10 In my top 3 on the CD a great song the chorus sticks in my head all day after I listen to it
6."Almost There,Going Nowhere" 7/10 Pretty cool song

7."Cheek to Cheek" 7/10 Awesome song also sticks in your head
8."Hello Houston" 9/10...a fun one! haha no this one's awesome

5-0 out of 5 stars Midtown is nasty
This is easily the best punk cd of the year.Here's what I think of the tracks:
1.BECOME WHAT YOU HATE : 8/10 Great Opener..Shows their teamwork
2.STILL TRYING : 9/10 Awesome fast paced song.
3.GET IT TOGETHER : 10/10 One of the three best on the album.
4.LIKE A MOVIE : 10/10 Good song..could be on mainstream radio someday.Top 3 on cd.
5.THERE'S NO GOING BACK : 8/10 Really good song.
6.PERFECT : 9/10 Good love song
7.YOU SHOULD KNOW : 5/10 Worst song on cd
8.ONE LAST TIME : 11/10 Great emotional song, maybe the best on the cd. Sounds like an old NFG song.
9.A FAULTY FOUNDATION : 10/10 fast awesome song.
10.IN THE SONGS : 9/10 Well-written song... Tells story of the band trying to make it.
11.FIND COMFORT IN YOURSELF : 11/10 My other choice for best on the cd. Backing vocals by the singer of The Movielife.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Punk Band Ever! part 2!!!
If you haven't heard Midtown yet, you don't know what you're missing! This is another 5 stars CD froma 5 star band. Midtown is easily the best punk, pop/punk, emo/punk group around! They put Blink 182, Sum 41, Simple Plan, Eve 6, and American Hi-Fi to shame. This is the cd to buy. This is easily the best mainstream band. I love this CD, every track is a winner.
1. Become What You Hate 5/5
2. Still Trying 5/5
3. Get It Together 5/5
4. Like a Movie 5/5
5. There's No Going Back 5/5
6. Perfect 5/5
7. You Should Know 5/5
8. One Last Time 5/5
9. Faulty Foundation 5/5
10. In the Songs 5/5
11. Find Comfort in Yourself 5/5
Agian a perfect CD from the perfect band. All hail Midtown, they rule !

2-0 out of 5 stars A step backwards
I like Midtown. Have since Save the World came out. I have to say this is a small step backward. Not a huge one, but noticable. The lyrics aren't as good, and most of the songs aren't as catchy. The best songs are A faulty foundation, become what you hate, find comfort and yourself and still trying. the rest of the album is terribly mediocre. id give it a 2.5 but i cant so its a 2.

if you want to check out midtown grab save the world lose the girl.

other bands to check out are saves the day, the movielife, fastbreak, lifetime, and shattered realm ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD rocks!!
I first heard their radio song, "Makin' Money," a while ago on a local station...I thought it was pretty cool and when I heard they were opening for Zebrahead, I was thinkin' that's even cooler. They sounded freakin' good live and they even did an AC/DC cover, which rocked. My friend and I were like, "These guys rock." So I recently bought this album and I am thoroughly impressed with their tight, melodic, yet rockin' sound. And they play guitar solos with a little character. Bands need to do this more!! You could call the music punk, and they definitely are punk, but I think this album sounds like Green Day meets AC/DC or something. Check it out!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD! Go buy it!
They're just one of those "unheard" bands that are really good. Their sound of pop-punk really tells them how good they are. Good songs, too. Can't say anything bad about all their songs - they're all equally good. Hard to say that on a debut CD, but on this band, you can say that.

Next album is worth a wait.

5-0 out of 5 stars pop punk at its finest!
I first heard about Handsome Devil through Lit's mailing list. They mentioned how they were the first band signed to their Dirty Martini label, and if they're good enough for the guys in my all-time fave band Lit, then they must be good enough for me. I bought Love and Kisses from the Underground the day it came out and was instantly satisfied, especially with the bonus disc, featuring a new Lit song from their upcoming album. Now, almost 2 years later, I still love listening to the Handsome Devil cd, especially since they were awesome live, opening for Lit last year, and they have 2 new songs from their new album on their website - its making me itch for the cd asap!! look for it out sometime as early as september of this year! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Why Orange County Rocks
From Razzle, to A Place in the Sun and now Atomic. Lit has come a long way and are getting better and better with every album. Unlike most bands that make it big, Lit has kept their sound the same the whole way through. Reaching down into their deep Rock roots, Atomic is filled with matchable radio friendly songs "Lipstick & Bruises" as well as "Addicted." For those who love the song "Miserable", Lit and Atomic deliver "Happy in the Meantime." An acoustic classic that is up and beyond one of the best songs on the CD. Also on the CD is the hit song from the Titan A.E soundtrack "Over My Head." A must have CD for true Rock and Lit fans alike.

5-0 out of 5 stars THERE IS ONLY ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS ALBUM- ATOMIC!
Lit is an awesome band, and they have improved upon their previous release "A place in the sun", which was also excellent. Just when you thought Lit would'nt be able to outdo themselves, "atomic" arrives on the scene. This album is full of high quality songs, and is a joy to listen to from beginning to end. Each song has a unique quality and feel to it, making the songs catchy and memorable. Jeremy Popoff creates awesome guitar riffs, and he always knows how to slip in the perfect original guitar solo, which is not long-winded, but cuts straight to the point. A.Jay on the other hand, has the ultimate rough rock voice, that suits the style of music perfectly. He can alternate between both "heavy", and soft and melodic. What is awesome about Lit, is that they seamlessly blend heavy guitar riffs, with happy and light-hearted lyrics. Thats not to say that all songs fit into this category, because "atomic" has such a great diversity in its songs (just like "A place in the sun"). All i can say is, this album f...ing rocks, and is slightly better than the previous album (although they are both excellent), and when i say it is slightly better, i mean that in a good way. The previous album was so good, that the fact that it was improved upon at all was amazing! Anyways, go and buy this cd, because if you like rock, you wont be disappointed. If you've never heard Lit before, "A place in the sun" is a good place to start, however you'll enjoy either cd you choose to start with.

5-0 out of 5 stars *Atomic*
Atomic....Wow.....I didn't even know that Lit had this CD out untill the summer of 03! It is great. Over all it is better than A Place In The Sun..... Best songs are tracks 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 13... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A definitive album of hardcore...
"Full Collapse" is the follow-up album to Thursday's debut "Waiting," and delivers a sound like no other I've heard before. From New Brunswick, NJ, Thursday has set themselves apart from other recent arrivals in the screamo genre. Geoff's vocals sound like a young, pissed-off Robert Smith of The Cure, and the compliment of screaming background vocals provide an emotional experience from the second you press play to the time the album is over. With songs like "Understanding in a Car Crash," "Paris in Flames," and "Standing on the Edge of Summer," this album gives the listener an intense musical and lyrical jolt.

Thursday's songwriting is unbelievable, with lyrics that you can feel and guitars that amplify your emotions. While comments have been made towards the screaming being overused or "gets old fast," it is a perfect compliment to Geoff's seemingly soothing but at times emotionally harsh voice. Thursday should be Victory Records signature band, but with the recent emergence of Taking Back Sunday, they may be stalled in success (which to most indie fans, may be a good thing). If you are a hardcore/emo fan of any respects, "Full Collapse" may be your best purchase yet. If you like this album, "Five Stories Falling," Thursday latest live release, is also a great album to check out.

5-0 out of 5 stars it just kept getting better
I bought this CD based on the two tracks I had heard from radio/MTV- "Cross out the Eyes" and "understanding (in a car crash)" but quickly discovered that this album is rock solid top to bottom.

Musically, Thursday seems to combine some relatively cliche elemets in a very refreshing manner- the product is a more grown up take on emo-core. The emo lyrics remain but are punctuated by screams that will, if played at proper volume, actually rip apart your speaker and slap you in the face. I dont pay much attention to lyrical content in particular...I think that as long as the singer seems to believe in what he's saying, its good enough for me. The vocals carry so much intensity that its quite clear that each word comes from the heart.

Thursday incorporates the common emo-core garage band technique of mixing pretty melody with abrasive and chaotic agression. There is a reason that this has been a musical staple since Beethoven...It works. Thursday's musicians are capable and talented songwriters- each song avoids falling into a rut. At the end of the cd, the listener is not weary of angst but compelled to hit play again and get another fix from the album's numerous hooks.

5-0 out of 5 stars This cd is awesome
If you dont like this cd, then you are absolutley crazy. Because let me tell ya.. this cd is so incredible, the lyrics are so awesome. Thursday is my favorite band, and I think you should definetly buy this record because the lyrics are so incredible and amazing.. its just awesome..So basically buy this cd its great. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best EP of the Year!
The Movielife rock. I really liked "This Time Next Year" and I was eagerly awaiting this EP from Drive Thru Records. It's out now, and it's great. All 5 songs are awesome (Walking On Glass, Hand Grenade, Up To Me, If Only Duct Tape Could Fix Everything, Operate). My favorite is "Hand Grenade", that song has a killer guitar solo in the middle. Can't wait for the next full legnth. These guys are awesome. Get this EP and "This Time Next Year", you won't be disapointed!

3-0 out of 5 stars Pull out the pin and throw it back....
"This Time Next Year" is perhaps my favorite emotinal-punk album of all time. It was a flawless album, in that every song was anything but: gritty yet heartfelt vocals, surging emotions, and crunchy, buzzing guitars. Unfortunately for the Movielife, "...Has a Gambling Problem" is both the follow up to "This Time Next Year" and their Drive Thru debut; both criteria for excellence in my mind. So with such high standards, did the Movielife choke?? Yes, and no...

All 5 songs are very catchy and crispy produced. Even the artwork is well above average. All the tracks with the exception "Up to Me" are at an easier pace than older material, but enjoyable none the less. One obvious departure though is emotion...Vinny sounds as if he could care less about the words he's singing. Many of the guitar parts have the same feel from song to song, with little variation. Although the lyrics retain their "broken-heart" motif, the aggression and thematic variation are both absent.

I would have to say that, despite disappointing expectations, "Has a Gambling Problem" is a little above average. The best song would probably have to be either "Walking on Glass" or "If Only Duct Tape Could Fix Everything." The worst song is "Hand Grenade," Drive Thru certainly hyped that one enough. Less "Hand Grenade," more "Single-White Female" (see "This Time Next Year").

4-0 out of 5 stars Get this last
This is a problematic E.P. even the Vinnie (the singer) has admited that this was a bit too half baked. It is as pop punk as the Movielife will ever get and as simplistically sturctured as the Movielife would dare even get. I read (I'm so musically astute) that this was done sort as a spur of the moment E.P. before they went touring and you can tell, it's very rushed and seems as if there wasn't a whole lot of writing that went into this. But Drive Thru has to have an E.P. from EVERY band it signs before they release a full length which is something that I find to be very annoying. If you bought this and think that the Movielife sucks than you need to buy This Time Next Year becuase this is perhaps the worst album they ever put out. ... Read more
