4.0 out of 5 stars A long-awaited gem 25 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A long-awaited gem is what I'd refer to it, at least for kids interested in the heavy pop sound. There's a reason this band was opening for Thrice a couple years ago, and you can see why they were chosen by Island for a debut.
"The Bridge" is a poppy, catchy record, but it sounds much more rock influenced than most of the pop crap coming out these days. The vocals catchy and harmonies aplenty, there are also plenty of cool guitar arpeggios that are quite metal. Although "Hold My Heart" (both parts) sounds more like filler than sentiment, songs like "Never Be Alone" showcase the band's ability to develop resonant choruses.
The band might sound very simple and straight to the point, which they are, but their ability to combo pop, punk, and metal is stellar. The CD is sure hard not to sing along. For fans of Story Of The Year, Thursday, Thrice, and of course Taking Back Sunday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and emotional melodic hardcore at its best 31 Aug 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I picked up Letter Kills - The Bridge after seeing them at the warped tour. I have to say, it's one of the best $10 I've ever spent. If you like bands such as Thursday, Dead Poetic, and Taking Back Sunday, you'll love Letter Kills. LK sounds like the above bands but they also have their own unique sound. One thing I love are the '80s guitar solos - a big complaint I have about today's hardcore bands are the lack of guitar solos.

Overall the best CD of the year so far, and I definitely recommend picking it up if you're into the emo/hardcore genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Letterkills: A Breath Of Fresh Air 12 Dec 2004
By A. Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
On this, their debut album, "The Bridge," Letterkills do well to establish a signature sound. Even though they could be classified into the "screamo" genre, they inject a subtle, dirty, southern rock vibe into their music and make it mash together very well. All the songs are larger than life, and this record was meant to be performed live. Vocalist Matt Shelton wails almost as loud as the guitars on here, but is capable of handling some tasteful melodic moments, as displayed on the softer side with the two-part ballad "Hold My Heart." The album begins with the soaring anthem "Lights Out" and never gets boring from there. "Brand New Man" is a chugging, catchy number, while "Clock Is Down" and "Whatever It Takes" explore more conventional musicianship. This album takes me back to when I heard the first The Used record. Unlike anything out there. Both albums take a tired formula and refresh and revitalize it. Letterkills are one of the few bands that is keeping the "Warped Tour" generation of music from being too predictable and boring. I was lucky enough to see them live a few weeks ago (opening for Three Days Grace and labelmates Hoobastank) and they definitely put on a great show and pumped up a lot of people who hardly knew them. They had a great attitude and it shows in the music. Who knows what future releases will bring for them, but chances are, if you even remotely dig the style of music that they vaguely fit in with (Everything from The Used, to Thursday, to Story Of The Year), you will love this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars you have to love that laugh thing the lead singer does 12 April 2005
By sugarcult fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
ok, the music store must have been playing a joke on me. i listened to "THE BRIDGE" at my local music store, and every song the lead singer did his weird laugh, the put that part on the sample.i thought that was kinda annoying. but i bought the album anyway and discovered he only did it about 5 times. but now, its cool. any way, when i first heard this cd, i thought it was kinda bland. then i listened to it a few more times, and i realized this was a cool, emo band that had cool guitar solos. you dont hear that everyday do you?

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok. 23 Dec 2004
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Other than the first 2 tracks, "Lights Out" and "Dont Believe," i really couldnt get into this cd. The guitarist is amazing, one of the best ive come across in new music, but the lyrics and the songs just start sounding the same in the middle of the cd. Its ok but slightly monotone. However I still do reccomend buying it just to hear the guitarist, wow.

5.0 out of 5 stars These guys are standout. 28 July 2004
By punkrockaddict56 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Your missing out on something if u don't give this album a try. I already knew 5 of the 12 songs when I bought the album from listening to them repetitively and obsessively on their website. This albums a breth of fresh air. They put a good balance of emotion(emocoreISH, not so deep but different... and more original) and thought into their music while still being creative, and catchy. Basicly the energy to their music is awesome. All the songs on the album have a really good melody to them. The singer has an awesome voice, mainly because his yell's cool, and the guitar riffs are also awesome. The only truely soft songs on the album are Hold my heart pt.1 and 2, and they aren't whiney either, just more mellow. They all kick ass. You'll understand everything I'm ranting about more when you buy the album. If you want a sample go check out 3 of the songs from the album on their website([...] Island rock rules.
