5.0 out of 5 stars Dammit! this is album is amazing!!!!!!, 24 Nov 2004
This review is from: Dude Ranch (Audio CD)
Blink 182 are my favourite band in the world, and to pick a favourite album by them is real hard because they're all fantastic. However, Dude Ranch takes it. This album IS the pop punk genre, this is the benchmark. it has a raw quality that the later over produced albums lack, and the vocal harmonies between Tom and Mark are the best i've heard from them. Also on this album, the lyrics are much better and more thoughtful than on previous, or even later records. This album opens with the best three song opening ever. First 'pathetic' fast upbeat opener, then 'voyeur', a clever song about spying on a woman from a tree. Then the best song on the album and the best blink song ever, 'dammit' The lyrics in this song are the best i've heard from blink, and Mark proves once again why he is the best singer/songwriter in the band, singing with heartfelt conviction and passion. The album also contains great pop punk songs such as 'josie'. 'waggy', 'apple shampoo' 'untitled'... wait, i could be here all day! they're all great. Trust me,if you want to here blink doing their best harmonies,singing their best lyrics and playing their best songs then this IS the album to buy. It may not be as poppy and commercial as Enema and TOYPAJ but it strikes a better balance between poppy and punk. Awesome!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Byce Is a legend, 17 Mar 2004
This review is from: Calender Days (Audio CD)
wow! when i first heard the artist formerly known as Bryce Avery
at an Ataris gig lately, i was very impressed by his live performance, especially in light of the harsh response from some parts of the crowd. So much so that i bought the alobum from him personally. When i listened to the album i was blown away. Here is a guy who writes, records and plays everything on his own. This album is uplifting enough to make you forget your worries, emotional enough to reduce you to tears and inspiring enough to make you pick up your acoustic and start writing yourself.
'Cross my Heart' is a great, bouncy, uplifting track which really sets the tone for the whole album. 'This is me' has an amazingly catchy piano part and a great plodding chorus. 'Saturday' really shows off Bryce's vocal talents, and the song is really jumpy and puts you in the mood to party.
'that's so you' is a tender acoustic song with heartfelt lyrics and great vocals. The album ends with the confessional 'Tv Family' it shows off Bryce's lyrical talents and tender vocals, it's a great end to a brilliant musical journey.
overall, what can i say? if you like emo music with great melodies then you won't buy a better album this year. Utterly outstanding!
