5.0 out of 5 stars Strangly, Depressingly uplifting, 15 Nov 2002
This review is from: The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most (Audio CD)
I feel genuinly sorry for Dashboard Confessional, AKA: Christopher Carabba. The lyrics throughout "the places you have come to fear the most" describe the emotional turmoil and hurt he has experienced. The strange thing is he pulls it off without making you feel depressed by the end of the album. It is hard to define the brilliance of the album in under 1000 words. The album has a largely acoustic flavour to it but it is by no means simple in the way that many acoustic songs are. It is catchy AND incredibly deep at the same time. "The places you have come to fear the most" has some of the best lyrics ever written which help make it like this. It is an album that I believe, anyone in the world can relate to, you only need to take a look at the discussion board on the DC website to realise this. The lyrics are however, so real, so relatable, and so beautiful that once you know them you suddenly realise how depressing they are. However the way in which DC puts them accross is fantastic and no means upsetting. Those of you reading this listening to your punk CD's shouldnt be put off though! I am a fan of stuff as heavy as "From Autumn to Ashes" and a massive fan of this as well. As soon as I hear some DC I smile inside, :) It really helps get you through everyday life because its just so damn relatable. If your feeling sorry for yourself - buy this album, it will make you feel better, if your not, buy this album, it will make you feel happier! Its like musical drug. - Wallowing in your own self pity has never sounded so good.
