Editorial Reviews

Co-produced by Zack Odom & Kenneth Mount, Mayday Parade's 2011 self-titled album marks a return to the band's songwriting roots. The entire album was self-written in a collaborative effort. This 12-song collection transpired through careful introspection and it echoes the musicians' maturation over the two years since their second album, Anywhere But Here. Mayday Parade burst onto the scene with their 2007 debut A Lesson in Romantics which received immense praise from critics and fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding a Balance October 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Many Mayday Parade fans jumped ship with the previous album "Anywhere But Here," and rightfully so. In my honest opinion, trust me, I know I'm in the minority here, I actually preferred "Anywhere But Here" to their original CD "A Lesson in Romantics." Before everybody scolds me and tells me I'm insane for not liking their first release more, let me just say this, I didn't like Jason. IMO, the man can't sing at all and he was the weaker link vocally. I will admit, he did provide much better lyrics which is why "Anywhere But Here" was very poorly received by older fans of Mayday.

Now, here's their latest effort. A few songs contain piano, which is amazing whenever they do, and a few songs have the vibe of their past 2 CDs. This is a hybrid of both their CDs to provide the ultimate catchy kick-ass album. Right away, we kick off with "Oh Well, Oh Well," which is the first single; rightfully so. This song starts out with a slow piano and then kicks it up and notch and goes into pop-punk mode. The chorus will have you humming it all day and the lyrics always are switching it up. This is great because it's not the same repetitive chorus slammed down our throats each time. Each track has an amazingly catchy chorus and the instruments finally kick it up a notch. One of my biggest problems with "Anywhere But Here" was how the drums mostly were tamed down. A 7 year old could learn the drums on that CD, and while the drums on this one aren't very special, they at least get unleashed a little bit more. This CD also contains some violin and orchestra too. Adding these effects really adds to the intensity of each song and makes it seem that much more "epic." Epic being used in the correct way here too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Comeback Album June 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a Mayday Parade fan since their first LP "A Lesson in Romantics" and bought their 2nd studio album without hesitation. Obviously when Jason left there was something missing, but the 2nd album was just flat-out bad in my opinion. I did not like the lyrics to any of the songs and found it tough to listen through the whole album. In fact, after about five listens I gave up. When this self titled album was released I approached it with much more caution because of "Anywhere but Here" being a let down... after previewing it several times I decided to give it a chance.

I was greatly rewarded, this album is put together MUCH better than their previous one and I even liked it more than the first one. It still does not have many of the qualities of "A Lesson in Romantics" but Derek and the rest of the band did a much better job with both lyrics and the music on this one. I recommend you preview some of the songs on youtube or somewhere else since it is very different than the first two albums but I absolutely give it five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars One song is worth it May 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
So I made the rookie mistake of buying this album after listening to just "Oh Well, Oh Well," which is conveniently the first track. I have shamelessly had that song on repeat for the last 3 days, it's so catchy, and actually a well written song, in my opinion. However, the rest of the album isn't good. It's not crap, it sounds ok, there are no moments that I think to myself, "This just SUCKS," but there aren't any moments that would ever have me singing along or repeating a song. Maybe I'm stuck in my high school glory days, but the emo/pop punk genre has declined from what it once was (Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World, etc.).

There are too many cheesy break-up lines, not enough catchy melodies and hooks. Grow a pair of balls, play some good music. I hate to disagree with so many who have loved this album, but the only thing that keeps me from giving it 1 star and deleting it from my phone is the first track. Download it and save yourself 8 bucks.

2.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this CD more than I did. January 25, 2013
By caveman
Format:MP3 Music
I was the biggest Mayday Parade fan since Tales told by dead friends. They were really original, they had good lyrics and we're doing something different in music. I loved a lesson in romantics just as much. I wanted to give this CD a chance because they're great musicians. I didn't like the cd because I felt like it lacked a lot of creativity. It's a little repeatetive... I did like a lot of ideas they had, but I just feel like they didn't do a very good job at it. I liked the old mayday parade because of the lyrics, creativity, and emotion the music gave me. Hey, If you like simple catchy alternative stuff on the radio then this is the CD for you. I'm just saying for me, I liked the deeper stuff and this CD is really cliche with lyrics that sound like they wrote them all in one week. A couple of good songs, but overall not for me. Every song I was expecting it to build up to something more than it did. It left me hanging. I think they set a bar they wont ever hit again.
