Good Charlotte look to be punk legends,
This review is from: The Young And The Hopeless (Audio CD)
i bought this album after hearing the great "lifestyles of the rich and famous" on TV, i was so astounded by the quality...i knew i had a new favourite band.
Heres a review of every track:
1. a new beginning 7/10
It is the worst track, but its only an introduction with strange instruments and movie credits feel , represents them as something quite interesting and special.
2. the Anthem 9/10
An amazing addition to the album, with fast paced guitars and energetic singing.
3. Lifestyles of the rich and famous 10/10
The debut UK single, with a brilliant drumming introduction and distorted singing voice. the song makes you want to jump like mad.
4. Wondering 9/10
A more softer track than previous gleaming with musical talent. Tremendous and just brilliant.
5. The story of my old man 8/10
One of the weakest tracks, but still comes through as an enjoyable rocky track.
6. girls and boys 8/10
a different style of music portraying relationships, which is original, distinct and fun.
7. my bloody valentine 9/10
a humourously lyrical song which shows good charlottes best punk.
8. hold on 10/10
a mellow, lifting song, that just makes you turn cold with amazement. One of the best.
9. riot girl 9/10
Catchy and upbeat rhythm makes this a rocking great tune.
10. say anything 10/10
A brilliant emotionally crafted song, touching and very well sung.
11. the day that i die 10/10
sarcastic lyrics and contrapuntal by the lyrics and style of music, its so fun and fabulous.
12. the young and the hopeless 8/10
title track is a good addition, one of the rockiest and loudest of the album proclaiming the bands energy.
13. Emotionless 10+/10
The best song on the album. A different sound to the others with its emotional content about billy and joels father. The track stands out above all others because its plain beautiful.
14. Movin' on. 8/10
Put together with catchy riffs and shouty vocalists, its a great way to show the bands energy and end an album
All together this is the best of punk rock music and is so tantilising that the band are young and will improve upon this masterpiece. Good Charlotte deserve credit, and hope they will be greatly successful. All i can say is if you love Blink 182, the Offspring and Goldfinger, you'll live for Good Charlotte.
