5.0 out of 5 stars ***Epic Stuff***, 28 Jan 2006
From first hearing of Yellowcard, you immediately associate their strong punk rock roots and their near perfect lyrics with the likes of Blink 182.

The untimely death of drummer Jon Lee has obvously influenced and changed the way the band approach their particular style of music. It is apparant that Grant Nicholas (lead singer) and Take Hirose (Bass player) have produced an album filled with emotion and a sense of sadness. As a result, Nicholas' vocals have soothed and relaxed, and he has matured the band from its rock 'n' roll roots. Tracks like "Come Back Around" and the ever affectionate "Love Pollution" have established Feeder as one of the most innovative and… Read more
