Their multiple piercings, shaved heads, and abundant tattoos have them labeled a punk band, but on their fourth album, Good Charlotte--led by twin brothers Joel (lead vocals) and Benji (lead guitar) Madden--fall much more under the umbrella of 1970s arena rock and mainstream ballads. There is the occasional foray into the pop-punk mode of previous records, including the distorted-vocal rap "Keep Your Hands Off My Girl" and "Broken Hearts Parade," which sounds like Green Day with horns. It's easy to see the maturation in the Maddens' songwriting on such tracks as "The River," a surveillance of the inner workings of Los Angeles, the grass-is-greener pop song "Something Else," and "Where Would We Be," a break-up ballad about Joel Madden's split with pop princess Hilary Duff. With a piano lead and strident chorus, Madden admits, "Now I must confess that I'm a sinking ship/And I'm anchored by the weight of my heart." Browbeaten in theory, like sister songs "Misery," "Victim of Love," and "Break Her Heart," Good Morning Revival offers hints of optimism that grow with the record and reach the summit with the closing pop song, "March On." The harmonic chorus jubilantly declares, "Like soldiers we can make it through the night/We'll see the sun/March on." Whether punkers or mainstream rockers, it's apparent that Good Charlotte will continue the march. --Scott Holter

'Good Morning Revival': An intro that is less than a minute which leads straight into 'Misery'. I like this start to the album. Its calming.
'Misery': On first listen I really didn't like this song, but then I listened again at it was great! It is one of those songs that will stay in your head and you'll probably be humming it all day. A typical Good Charlotte track that could have easily been on one of their previous albums. 5/5
'The River': This features M. Shadows and Synyster Gates from Avenged Sevenfold and shows a more hard rock side to Good Charlotte. This track shows that they can expand and make different kinds of music than they have made in the past. 4/5
'Dance Floor Anthem': A real sing along song that will have you dancing around for ages. A great chorus. 5/5
'Keep Your Hands off my Girl': Great track, one of the best from the album. Great, catchy lyrics that everyone must know. Great riff and beat aswell. Obvious choice for a single. 5/5
'Victims of Love': A grower. On first few lsitens you'll probably think 'hmmm' but then the lyrics become clear and it becomes a better song. 4/5
'Where Would We Be Now': Slower track that shows a more mature Good Charlotte. 4/5
'Break Apart Her Heart': Great track that again is mature and very true. Very fast paced chorus. 5/5
'All Black': An ok track that takes a bit of time to get into. The lyrics are a bit cheesy which pushes it down the ratings a bit, but its ok. 3/5
'Beautiful Place': Another slower track that is ok but the lyrics aren't great. 3/5
'Something Else': Another mature song that is very true. Good chorus but needs something else to make it great. 4/5
'Broken Hearts Parade': Great track. One of the best on the album. This song must be sung along to. It has a brilliant chorus and is a old school Good Charlotte track. 5/5
'March On': Great end to the album with a slow, melodic song that is really emotional. Shows a much more mature side to Good Charlotte. 4/5
Die hard fans of Good Charlotte may be disapointed with this, but every band wants to try something different with each album, and this may be different, but it works. It has some usual Good Charlotte tracks, but mixes them with newer ones that are also great. A few more 5 star songs and it would have been a top notch album! Still, it is a great purchase and I think most rock fans would enjoy this.
Another reviewer said that only 14 year old girls would like this, but I'm 42 and proud that I still listen to all kinds of music, good and bad, and then decide. I suggest that you do the same because, for my money, this is good....very good. Buy it and do yourself a favour.
However, I was really surprised to hear a brilliant mix of traditional GC with some newer influences on this album. To me, they have explored new ground in every song, with a no-filler effect.
There are many stand out tracks to choose from, with their releases obviously being up there (Keep Your Hands Off My Girl, which has only grown on me since first hearing it, and The River, which is pure class). But songs such as Break Apart Her Heart, Victims Of Love and Dance Floor Anthem have captivated a much wider audience with their redesigned melodies. This is without mentioning crowd pleaser, All Black or the softer sound of March On (Benji's solo writing debut).
They've finally mastered the art of slower songs- instead of droning for 5 minutes (Mountain, anyone?) songs like March On or Where Would We Be Now have a much more appealing sound.
Furthermore, Joel has pushed his vocal capacity to his full potential on this record which enhances each and every song.
Somehow, Good Morning Revival, for all it's diversity, manages to make each song meld into the next in a complementary sort of way.
New sounds, more instrumental skill, a better vocal range and a wealth of song writing experience has made Good Morning Revival a masterpiece. Anyone listening would never guess it was by GC, but at the same time they have returned to their roots.
Good Charlotte have excelled themselves, and Good Morning Revival shows them at the pinnacle of their career so far.
This is a fantastic album with catchy tunes and is simply excellent. a must have for all music fans. :D
