3.0 out of 5 stars Mayday Parade, Only Different October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Anywhere But Here is second full-length album from alternative rock band Mayday Parade. The Tallahassee-based group has always been set apart from others in its genre for its heartfelt vocals, well-written lyrics, and general originality. After the success of their first album, A Lesson in Romantics--the cleverly-versed follow up to the EP, Tales Told by Dead Friends--Mayday Parade was highly praised by even those who like to complain about the sameness of most alternative bands. Mayday Parade was a different thing altogether, and in a very good way. In this second album, Mayday keeps its heartbreaking vocals, but loses something in the process of rearranging itself to a broader audience.

As most fans will know, this album marks the first time Mayday Parade has had to function without the lyrical support of Jason Lancaster, and the results are somewhat mixed. As expected, the lyrics are considerably less witty and poetic and sound somewhat less sincere as a result. However, frontman Derek Sanders' voice is so earnest (and, in this album, has matured to a smooth but still unique tone)that you still "feel" the songs. The instrumentals flow very nicely, and the composition is as good as ever, but the fact remains that without Lancaster, Mayday Parade is simply a different band. I still love them, and the band still ranks as one of my absolute favorites, but I must admit that I prefer their style from A Lesson in Romantics and the Tales Told By Dead Friends EP. Their sound was fresh and individual, whereas in Anywhere But Here the band seems to be following a preset pattern laid out for most typical alternative bands. The Silence and Get Up are both tracks that sound unremarkable and forgettable.

Other than absolutely loving the music, the first thing that made an impression on me concerning Mayday Parade's "A Lesson In Romantics" album was the length of some of their song titles...14, 15, even 22 words long. Most of the songs didn't have a set-in-stone structure to them, yet the soaring melodies flowed so effortlessly, the music was so powerful, the vocals were performed so passionately and the lyrics were such that they made you think real hard (and the thinking was well worth it)... that after all was said and done, I have to rate that album as my favorite alternative/punk/emo record ever.

Immediately after discovering it, I wanted more! I wanted it to go on and on forever...it was (and still is) that good. So finally, Mayday puts out "Anywhere But Here", partnering with a major label for the first time, and my excitement upon hearing the news was over the top. Now, I have to admit, I never took much time digging into the specifics of who the band members were, and I don't have the means to see them in concert. All I had were these songs I had downloaded and were playing the heck out of.

Eventually I found out that shortly after the recording of it, one of the lead singers, Jason Lancaster, had left the band. That scared me for the future of this band, because another highlight of that album was the flawless intertwining of the two lead vocalists. Since I had no physical copy, I had no idea that Jason's was the voice I had fallen in love with...so distinctive, so passionate, so incredible! That's not to put down Derek Sanders (the other lead vocalist), because he's awesome too...just not quite the emotive singer Jason is.

I've listened to this new one several times now, and while it's still good, it doesn't approach the quality of "A Lesson...".

5.0 out of 5 stars Anywhere But Here is anything but ordinary October 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The new Mayday Parade album, Anywhere But Here, absolutely rocks! It has everything from happy, upbeat, tunes to ballads fulls of beautifully written lyrics. These guys are amazing. I don't think I've ever heard a single song by them that wasn't instantly soothing to my ears! Anyone who buys this album will NOT be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... Absolutely amazing. <3 October 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The new Mayday Parade cd is so amazing. I haven't even had it for a full day and I love it. The vocals are beautiful. Everyone is complaining about Jason leaving... But I think the band is still awesome. The lyrics are still meaningful and they are still very emotional. I recommend picking this cd up. My favorite song is I Swear This Time I Mean It.

I'm a huge Mayday Parade fan. <3

5.0 out of 5 stars New Mayday is terrific October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy this CD a lot. Like others I wasn't sure what to expect after the departure of an important member of the band, but was really pleasantly surprised. To be sure it is different than the last Mayday CD, but in a good way I think. It is true that the lyrics aren't as deep and brooding as Lesson in Romantics, but I don't find I need that. What we get instead ranges from incredibly catchy and infectious pop songs (Kids in Love, Bruised and Scarred, Get Up), to dark (The Silence), to slow wonderful ballads (I Swear This Time I Mean It).

The music and instrumentation are terrific. The CD is tight and well performed and the songs are melodic. The vocals are spot on. The vocals are different because we no longer have the dual vocals that were so prominent on the previous CD. For me, though, I had grown tired of the fakey, twangy accent laced vocals of the departing singer. Some folks equate all that with emotion, I didn't. I find the vocals here to be more honest and less pretentious.

Anyway, one of the other reviews talked about these songs as flat and stale. I couldn't disagree more.
Terrific CD by a terrific band. I know you'll enjoy it.
