On the title track and opening song of their fourth album, Hawk Nelson urges its listeners to Live Life Loud. That sentiment, founding member Daniel Biro notes, is "as Hawk Nelson as Hawk Nelson can be." Live Life Loud. It's not just a matter of volume, mind you; it's a philosophy. Part of living at the extreme that title suggests is embracing all of life, accepting and even celebrating a little pain and darkness and finding a way to let it enrich life.

The album kicks off with Hawk Nelson's signature rock/punk sound with the title track, complete with cheerleaders. "Live Life Loud" reminds me of previous rock anthems "Friend Like That", "Bring `Em Out" and "California", but there is a maturity and musical diversity that really makes Live Life Loud the best overall album by Hawk Nelson from beginning to end in my opinion. "Never Enough" and "Eggshells" keep the rock going, and the guitar work has never sounded better. The band lists Jimmy Eat World as a musical influence and if you like that rock/punk sound combined with spiritual lyrics, this album is for you.

Catchy first single "Meaning of Life" continues the search for significance, harmoniously determining to "start today for a new beginning...find a way to make a change in all of us who need to find the meaning of life". The song reminds me of some of my favorite more pop-style songs recorded by Hawk Nelson, including "From Underneath", "Everything You Ever Wanted" and "One Little Miracle". The message of "Meaning of Life" is that we need to stand-out and not blend in with the crowd. We should be bold with our faith, Christians need to make a difference in our world. Next song "Alive" is about losing one's self and serving others.

Hawk Nelson no doubt has talent, but since their debut they kind of stuck to the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. Fortunately, this time around they change things up a little. For example there is a guest vocal appearance of TobyMac on Eggshells, an interesting string arrangement to the contemplative rocker Meaning Of Life, a remake of an old hymn, and a funny song about Hawk Nelson's favorite hockey team winning the Stanley Cup. Throughout the entire album there is a near perfect balance of seriousness and fun. Although not a candidate for best album of the year, it is still a fun listen. 3.5/5.

After a first listen I can definitely say I liked this album. There's a lot of variety across it, with slower songs and the bands more traditional pop/rock/punk sound. Not all of the songs are great, but they're all good. Some of them, like Ode to Lord Stanley are definitely intended to be funny and make sense for a band from Ontario. 'Tis So Sweet is a great praise song that shows they have stuck to their Christian ideals. Live Life Loud starts by making you unsure of what you're going to get and then really gets into the groove. Never Enough is a great song that is easy to listen to again.

If you haven't heard this band before their first two albums, Letters to the President and Smile, It's the End of the World are probably a better spot to start with, but this one is better than their third album, Hawk Nelson Is My Friend.

This is a little different than most of Hawk Nelsons stuff but let me tell you i am very impressed with this. Great guitars, great vocals, everything about this album is great. This is probably their most mature album not that much Comical songs on this one. My favorite songs are Live Life Loud, Eggshells, The Job, Shaken, and Lest We Forget. Great album.

This was a gift for my daughter. It's just what she was expecting, and she's still enjoying the CD now after having it for a while.

This is probably my least favorite album buy Hawk Nelson. Rather disappointing...it doesn't really sound like Hawk Nelson, not as punkish. But the songs I do recommend on it are-Alive, Live Life Loud, The Job, Shaken, The Meaning of Life,Never Enough, and Eggshells. The rest I could do without.

It had been awhile since i had bought a hawk nelson cd since i only have the Smile its the end of the world Cd. This cd is very similar to that one which is very good, and it is a bit more mature. Some songs on the cd sound a bit untraditional, but in a good way. The cd is a bit hard to like at first as some songs do not seem to flow, or even sound good. But once you know the lyrics (which does not take long, they are catchy) you will be singing right along and loving them. Only one song is a but strange and out of plac eon the record, but its relatively short, and therefore does not take away from the album. If you are considering getting this, especially since the price is getting lower, go for it you will enjoy it!!!!
