This review is from: The Young and the Hopeless (Audio CD)
Wow! Like everyone else I heard "Boys & Girls" on MTV and kinda liked their sound. I was flicking through the music channels when I heard "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and knew instantly that they were my type of band. I rushed out and bought "The Young and the Hopeless" and wasn't disappointed.
There's a strong sense of family running through the album. The fact that their father left them when they were 16 helped them produce some classic songs such as the rather upbeat "The Story of My Old Man" and the simply stunning "Emotionless". This album has everything, humour, comedy, punk anthems and songs for the social outcasts. Go and buy it now, you will not be disappointed!
