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.

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.

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.

I hadn't heard of Mayday Parade until a little over a week ago. Their song "Oh Well, Oh Well" came on satellite radio and it got me dancing. So I decided to find out more about the band. I was ignorant of the fact that they were one of the more popular pop-punk bands. I'll admit that I haven't listened to much pop-punk music for the past few years.

Mayday Parade is a band I could imagine performing at the Warped Tour and blaring out of the speakers inside Hot Topic, but also have hits on the radio (as did Blink 182, Simple Plan, and Fall Out Boy before them). Unfortunately, only the first two things are true (so far). Euro-dance influenced songs have ruled the pop charts for the past few years, so perhaps there is little room left for pop-punk. Although pop-punk is just as catchy and upbeat as dance-pop music, no pop-punk bands have made a huge impact on top 40 recently, other than Paramore. But it could make a comeback.

Mayday Parade's self-titled, third album is just as much of a pop album as it is a punk album. It has sweet melodies and well-crafted, clean production, but loud guitars and drums. The lyrics mostly deal with love, but they are not sugary, they are always reflective and mature. Some songs are upbeat, others are `emo'.

My favorite tracks on the album are "Oh Well, Oh Well", "No Heroes Allowed", "When You See My Friends", "Priceless", "Stay", and "Everything's An Illusion". "Oh Well, Oh Well" is the catchiest song on the album, and it features an orchestra. "Stay" is an emo ballad that stands out among the slower songs.

If you are (or were) a fan of any pop-punk bands, check this band and album out if you haven't already.

Mayday Parade is a great band and this is another great album. It still isn't as good as their first two albums, but it is at least ten times then the anywere but here album.

Mayday Parade does it again with their downright catchy, emotional, and melodic self-titled album. Starting off with their hit single "Oh Well, Oh Well," the album releases the energy Mayday Parade is known for with no time to spare. As they say in the single, "sit still and listen to the soundtrack." I highly recommend it! It only gets better! "When You See My Friends" is surely one of those songs that those that loved classic Mayday will be all over. With Derek's amazing vocals and the great musicality of the band as a whole, there's no doubt about this being one of their best songs yet. Now, right in the middle of the album is a track called "Stay." It is one of those incredibly moving tunes that you just can't turn off. It packs a bit more punch than "Miserable At Best" (a true favorite), but it's just as meaningful. The beautiful string section in the background amplifies the severity of the tone as it starts with no flaws or filler whatsoever! Although many may have been put off by Mayday's second album (I certainly wasn't, however), this should convince you that Mayday is better than ever! I'd rate this 5/5! It's as good as it gets!
