Editorial Reviews

Rock sensations Good Charlotte are back with their highly anticipated fifth full-length album Cardiology almost exactly 10 years after their self-titled debut put them on the map as one of the most exciting bands of the decade. Originally formed as a pop-punk band in Waldorf, Maryland, in 1996, Good Charlotte—vocalist Joel Madden, guitarist Benji Madden, guitarist Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and the latest edition, drummer Dean Butterworth—have penned countless mainstream radio hits such as “The Anthem,” “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” and “Hold On.” However more importantly the band have constantly reinvented themselves and refused to limit their potential, whether that means supporting Justin Timberlake on his FutureSex/LoveShow tour or collaborating with Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows and Synyster Gates on their hit single “The River” from Good Charlotte’s 2007 full-length Good Morning Revival. That adventurous musical persona continues with Cardiology, an album that features everything from the dance floor-friendly first single “Like It’s Her Birthday” to future GC anthems such as “Silver Screen Romance,” while still effortlessly retaining the band’s signature sound in the process. While in some ways Cardiology is a return to form for these multiple Warped Tour headliners, it also manages to work in elements from throughout the band's classic catalog to create an album that simultaneously summarizes what Good Charlotte are all about and hints at where they are headed in the future. While musical trends can be fleeting, Good Charlotte have always proved themselves to be a constant in the music world by sticking to their punk roots without being afraid to expand their horizons and bring in new influences—and Cardiology is just the latest chapter in the band's already unparalleled career. We can’t wait to see what the second decade holds in store with Good Charlotte and share Cardiology with the band’s myriad fans and supporters who have been clamoring for this record.

Customer Reviews

I am a huge fan of Good Charlotte & I love this album.
The more I listen to this album, the more it grows on me and I love it definitely grew on me at lot from the first time.
There has been a lot of hype about the band returning to their roots, and almost as much disappointment that they didn't.

I wanted to love this album. When both Joel and Benji had made comments about getting back to their roots, and how Cardiology would not be dance-y like Good Morning Revival was, I allowed myself to hope.

In a way, the sound is more "Good Charlotte" than GMR was. I'll probably listen to this CD more than Good Morning Revival.

But something is missing. It doesn't seem to have the heart that Good Charlotte's earlier albums did. Several songs, such as "1979," "Silver Screen Romance," and "Counting The Days" have more of the old Good Charlotte type of sound and are fun enough to listen to. However, they feel almost forced, a little desperate. They don't seem to have the "natural" feel of classic Good Charlotte stuff. As simplistic as the music style on their self-titled CD was, it seemed very raw, true, and natural. Some of the music on Cardiology feels too much like they were trying to recapture a part of their past and it's just not there anymore. It tries a little too hard.

Added to that, a few of the songs seem like they belonged on GMR. "Like It's Her Birthday" and "Last Night" in particular stand out, and not in a good way. And then "Sex On The Radio" is just so silly and ridiculous (but not in an intentional, kitchy, tounge- in-cheek way), you feel embarrassed that anyone thought it was a quality enough song to put on the CD.

And then the intro and title track. The album opens with "Introduction to Cardiology." If nothing else, this should have been left out. Good Charlotte seems to think that because they did so on Young and the Hopeless, Chronicles, and GMR, they have to open a new CD with an intro, mostly instrumental track.

Well, I guess the question is, what place (if any) does Good Charlotte have in the music world in 2010? They have taken quite a serious turn since they first burst onto the scene as a Blink 182 pop/punk offspring with "The Young and the Hopeless". The Madden brothers have pretty much turned into the folks they were ridiculing in "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" (or at the very least married and dated them, respectively). Although they've kept a similar look over the years, they're music has hardly resembled the pop/punk image they sold themselves on. Sometimes it's been quite successful (Dance Floor Anthem, The River), but mostly their music has left non devoted fans saying "remember when Good Charlotte was good?" It's been nearly ten years since Good Charlotte blew up, and I have to say that if you would've asked me if these guys would still be making music ten years later, I would've put a solid bet down that they would not have been. Well, they still are, and all in all Cardiology is not such a bad little album. They still can't figure out who they are ("Right Where I Belong" bares striking similarities to Angels and Airwaves, and the cheesy party cliche "Like It's her Birthday" would've been better off on the cutting floor, let alone as the lead in single. But still, there is some good stuff on here. "Counting the Days" is classic Good Charlotte, and "1979" shows Good Charlotte doing their best Third Eye Blind... and it actually works. "Let The Music Play" is another pretty catchy tune (again, with a Third Eye Blind/Sugar Ray type of sound), so maybe this is the style they are going for these days. The rest is a mixed bag, but ultimately it's more than I'd expect from this band at this point.

I began listening to Good Charlotte during my senior year of highschool back in 2000. Absolutely loved the the first album "Self Entitled" and would still consider myself to be a fan to this day. Sure, there is a huge difference from the first album Good Charlotte gave us as opposed to their more recent stuff and of course my music taste has changed a lot in the last ten years. However, I think Good Charlotte still delivers in this album. Many of the songs still provide good hooks. The main reason I am giving this album 3 stars only as opposed to 4 is that I wasn't quite as impressed as I thought I would be. Good Charlotte made a lot of claims about heading back to their old roots on this album and built up a lot of anticipation on how long the album took and how they had scrapped what they were originally working on and started over. If they were trying to duplicate their self entitled album...they didn't achieve that goal. However, there are some good songs on here if you are looking for that original good charlotte sound such as "Counting The Days". It's not a 5 star album by any means however, it's worth the 10 bucks or so it costs.

This is the fifth major album by Good Charlotte. Overall a decent effort but not quite as good as Good Morning Revival. "Like It's Her Birthday" was the first single released off of the album and in my opinion is the best song. The Madden brothers have put out a good but in my opinion not great album. The following is my rating of each song:

1. Introduction to Cardiology--(4/5): A nice less than a minute intro track. Nothing special.

2. Let the Music Play--(3/5): Very happy song. Probably a bit too much repetition on the "let the music play" lyrics. The song itself doesn't say very much to me. Upbeat and nice but very regular.

3. Counting the Days--(3/5): Another upbeat song. "Three's company is not my style, it's just you and me." A guy pining for his girlfriend who he hasn't seen for a while. Nothing special but catchy.

4. Silver Screen Romance--(4/5): First very solid track of the album. Great harmony. Complex lyrics a bit tough to follow. "Living in a silver screen romance" and pointing to individual screen stars asking if you are Betty Davis or Carey Grant or others. "All dressed up and ready to go for a ride" is the lyric from this song which pretty much sums up this song.

5. Like It's Her Birthday-(5/5): First single released on this album. Very catchy. Definitely the single that people are talking about from this album. Great harmony around "like's it's her birthday" lyrics.

6. Last Night--(4/5): A funky, psychedelic sounding tune at the beginning rolling right into a fast, upbeat solo. " I knew when I met her I wouldn't take it slow." Very good beat throughout the song.

7. Sex on the Radio--(4/5): Another song with a very funny sounding start to it but quickly rolls into something ok but not great.
