This is the only album in my collection that doesn't have 1 bad song on it. HONESTLY!!! This is the most amazing pop/punk album yet. NEW FOUND GLORY'S album 'Sticks & Stones' is damn good to but comparing it to 'SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT' you see The Starting Line's album is far better. The first song 'Up & Go' grabs your attention straight away with it's rad intro. But listening to there new version of leaving amazed me. IT'S SO MUCH MORE PUNKY.Best of me is the first song I heard... and thats the song that made me buy it.Ken Vasoli's vocals have really improved since the EP. The song 'Goodnights sleep' really does prove it. The drumming is amazing,actually everything is.The Starting Line's talent has not been commercialised which I'm well happy about.Once they become famous there's no joy in listening to what everyone else listens to!!!! Their remake of Saddest girl story is far better because of the sound quality. At first it sounds a bit weird but listen to it properly and you can tell it's better.
THIS ALBUM RULES,BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i saw these guys at a concert at newcastle uni, i haddnt heard of them, but how great were they!! ive seen them on p-rock since then and their new song is the bestest. i went straight out and bought their album from a popular record store and it has been stuck in my stereo ever since. songs "like saddest girl story" and "almost there, going nowhere" will appeal to everyone and they provide a range of styles which work really well. the lead singer guy is totally hot so you got something pretty to look at too. i recon you all need to get this album cos its a must for any punk/rock/ska fan.

I brought this album, mainly because I've become a fan of many of the drive thru bands so I thought I'd check these guys out. As soon as I put this CD on, I fell in love with it. From start to finish this album does not disappoint. It is now one of my absolute favorite CD's, I've been listening to it non stop since I got it and I'm still not bored. The best tracks in my opinion are Given the chance, best of me, cheek to cheek, hello houston, the drama summer and this ride, although to be honest there is not one track that has me reaching for the 'skip' button. Although this album is somewhat overproduced, the songs are all performed so well, with so much energy, that its hard not to love it.
If you're looking for some furious, edgy punk then I'd suggest you leave this one on the shelf. On the other hand, if you want an album filled with upbeat melodies and infectious hooks that will have you jumping around your room, then give starting line a go. Once you've listened, you'll see that the starting line are much more than 'just another pop punk band'.

While I was ordering 'Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits' by 'The Ataris', I noticed a link to this album in the 'Customers who bought this also bought...' section of the page. I had another £9 left to spend on my gift voucher, so I took a gamble on this. I'm glad I did.
I have to say, it's nowhere near ground breaking stuff.....at all. More mature than Blink 182, more up-beat than The Ataris, but still pretty much the same stuff. In fact, at one point I didn't even notice when my playlist transitioned between TSL and The Ataris.
That's the only bad thing I can say about the album.....it's just......generic. In fact I've listened to this album at least 8 times over, compared to the...oh....TWICE that I listened to the Ataris album I bought at the same time, and that's a very good album. That's got to stand for something.
If you're looking to expand your musical horizons, don't bother.
If you're looking for more of the same, and a safe purchase, this album is for you.

If you like any of the 'drive-thru records' bands, especially New Found Glory, then you will 100% love the Starting line.
Produced by Mark Trombino (who also produced Blink 182's classic Dude Ranch album) it is pack full of catchy 'pop punk' songs but with bit more feeling than some of their counterparts i.e Sum 41. My personal best track off the album is 'This Ride' which features Nate Barcalow of Finch, another Drive-thru band.
It only gets 4 out of 5 stars because I feel they sound too much like NFG and the sound is also slightly overproduced, but if none of that bothers you, than sit back, listen and enjoy.

Why this obsession with categorising bands - punk, pop-punk, emo, emo-core, blah, blah...who cares what label you stick on it - just listen to the song samples. If you like excellent songs, well produced, well played, loud guitars and great vocals then just buy this. Of course you've heard this sort of stuff before. Every good tune was written in the sixties and has been reformulated since then in every shape and size - this is just a very good reformulation and it sounds great in the car....very loud. The Starting Line (along with the magnificent Ataris) are simply better at this kind of thing than anyone else.

I heard of this band last summer and i've been waiting and waiting to get their album ever since. Ok, so they're may be hundreds upon hundreds of bands out there who are in the same emo caterogy as these guys, but this band is different from them..i dont know how, they just are. My only fear now is that they get noticed by all the dam teeny boppers and end up on Kerrang or something *cringe* These guys have a bright future ahead of them if they're producing music like this so early in their careers.
