I purchased this EP because Zombies will not be released until August 8th. This was a happy accident since I had not bothered to listen to any of the songs before this purchase. I bought this cd solely on the strength of a cut I heard from Zombies called Here (in your arms). This EP is thoroughly listenable. The singer's voice is sweet. The lyrics are clean and simplistic. In fact, sophormorically simplistic. I bought their DVD which by the way includes a fantastic set they did at the House of Blues. Both versions of Bonnie Taylor Shakedown are worth having though the 2K4 version is a more danceable version and very peppy. Dear Jamie is saccharin-ly sweet. In fact, most of the lyrics are pretty saccharin. I thought this was a joke, a put-on, a wink to the audience. But after watching the DVD and seeing these boys, this is a not a joke. They seem like sweet kids, kind of innocent, good friends, and they just want to have some fun and make some fun music to go along with it. That being said, I am more of an emo, screamo, alternative rock kind of person but I am also a product of the 80's too. This is more of an retro throwback sound. If you like that sort of thing, then I highly recommend it. If you don't and you prefer the emo thing, stay away. This will not be your cup of tea. Then may I suggest Thursday, Hawthorne Heights, or AFI.

Honestly, this is my 'happy band'. When I'm sad, I listen to some hellogoodbye. The songs are upbeat and catchy, and wakes me up in the morning. Hellogoodbye, well i saw them live and they are fer sher the optimists. They're so 'down-to-earth' and well, amazing. I love the cd, even though its an EP. I love it.

This c.d. is well worth buying! The tracks are all so good I can't even choose a favorite. Hellogoodbye is like a mix between the all american rejects and the click 5. Not to mention, that the song called Jessie Buy Nothing...Go to Prom Anyways is hilarious!

this cd rocks get it!!!!!!!

1.shimmy shimmy quarter turn: 10/10 awesome, its sounds like the first song they made cuz theyre voices are a little higher but it still rocks!!!!!!!!

2.call n return: 10/10 i really like this song as well...so this is a really good song...

3.jessie buy nothing, go to prom anyways!: 9/10, ok this song is a litte wierd but it is oddly addicting. all they do is scream and yell in this song and it sounds like hes gonna kill his girlfriend if she doesnt go to prom with him, but hes not it just sounds that way...the ending is odd but overall if u listen to it a few times youll like it

4.bonnie taylor shakedown2k1: this song is awesome and theres a techno version to it where the voice is like different

5.dear jamie, sincerely me: this song is my fave on the album it is really great

Alot of the reviews on this album are based areound compairing Hellogoodbye to Reggie and the Full Effect. Being a fan of Reggie and the Get Up Kids, for years, i can see how someone would compair this to reggie but only for one reason: the fact that its like Comedy Synth Pop. Both bands make joke songs using synthesizers and keyboards and such, but he fact that Reggie has been around longer, people want to lable hellogoodbye as followers, even though the music its self is not that similar. if people want call this a copy of RATFE, then you might as well go and call every Victory Records Band, and every other band that has screamng in it, a copy of whom ever it was that the defined the sound first. In some cases yes, bands do sound the same and one seems to be coping the other, but in this case, i dont think thats the issue. with that asside, i think this is a great and fun album and im excited to hear whats next from these guys!

I Don't know where I heard about these guys. Maybe it was here on Amazon. I can't remember. Well, that's not the point. The bottom line is: This CD is one of the best powerpop/techno/indie/emo EPs I have ever heard. Yeah, that's a mouth full but that's how I would categorize this. It's that varied. Every song on here is catchy as hell. Given there's only 6 songs, but every one is golden in it's on way. I seriously don't know why this band isn't all over airwaves. Perhaps it's due to all the different styles they incorporate. However, I think that when it comes down to it, they are pop. I showed this CD to some of my friends at school who usually stick to mainstream stuff. (fallout boy, green day) At first they were very skeptical, because most of my music falls under the "screamo/hardcore" radar. However, after hearing "Dear Jamie" They fell in love with it and demanded copies. After a couple weeks half the school had fell in love with this band. BTW that was back when they were ENTIRELY indie status. Now they are a bit more popular. I don't know why I like this CD so much. It might be the sound effects, the lyrics, the guy's voice, or the guitarwork. It's all just so well done. I can see anybody liking this. The addictiveness is amazing.

The songs seem so similiar, but yet they are very different. I simply can't express the diversity Hellogoodbye offers. There aren't many bands that can claim a sound like this. Sure, there are similiar acts, such as Plain White T's, or Zolof, but even those bands don't sound like this.

Lyrically I was greatly impressed. Usually in this field of music you won't find stuff this deep. It's almost Emoish. The subject material pretty much sticks with girls. (go figure) Still though, there's a lot of poetic prowess. Good job Hellogoodbye.

SO overall, you need this if you enjot music. It shall satisfy.
