Format: Audio CD
"Screaming Infidelities" (5/5): An amazing song, the first single off of his second record "The Places..."
"The Sharp Hint Of New Tears" (5/5): I can't help but sing along with this song.
"Living In Your Letters" (4/5): Really emotional lyrics about a person the songwriter cares about.
"The Swiss Army Romance" (5/5): The title track is superb. Extremely catchy.
"Turpentine Chaser" (5/5): The bridge of this song is so good it gives me the chills.
"A Plain Morning" (3/5): This is not a bad song, just not great.
"Age Six Racer" (4/5): Really touching lyrics and soft background vocals make this one great.
"Again I Go Unnoticed" (5/5): An intensly emotional tune.
"Ender Will Save Us All" (5/5): Another song that is always stuck in my head, i love it.
"Shirts And Gloves" (4/5): This soft ballad is a winner.
"Hold On" (3/5): I don't know why, but this one doesn't do anything for me.
"This Is A Forgery" (4/5): Kind of different for Dashboard, but not bad at all.
"Hidden Track" (4/5): I enjoy the raw feel of this song.
Chris Carraba's first release as Dashboard Confessional is a great album. It was re-released three years after it came out, now with some bonus tracks. The real gems here are the title track and "Again I Go Unnoticed." There are only like one or possibly two songs that i skip through when listening to this. Great effort overall.
Rating: Four stars.

Dashboard Confessional is an amazing band. I don't even know if I can fully support that fact, they are just talented and very insightful. When I listen to this CD, I am completely lost, yet I know exactly where I am. I am just somewhere else inside. I think about everything, and that's what the music does. It is thought-provoking and it is hard to compare to anything else. All of the lyrics are easy to relate to, even though they are written from a male perspective I can still relate to it all.
Okay, about the actual music. Every song has excellent lyrics, and it always seems to be the background music when I want to just sit and think about things. I love the singer's voice, something about it just makes him sound meaningful. He can hit some of the higher notes, but doesn't go out of a range that we can't all sing along to. I always sing to the music... ahhahaha i am usually not so very carefree when I sing. But there is something emotional to this music that makes you feel like you don't have to sound nice to sing it.
I love the fact that it is all pretty much acoustic. I don't know why. I am bad at explaining. . . this is a bad review sorry. :). All I can say is after hearing this CD I was so in love with it. You may be too.

I brought this album on a prayer that it would be something special and worthwile listening to. Fortunately, I was not remotely disappointed.
The lyrics running throughout the album are intelligent and heartfelt, and the music passionate and excellent.
1) Screaming Infidelities - 5/5. A brilliant track, both lyrically and musically. Sung with real soul, a very moving acoustic tune.
2) The Sharp Hint of New Tears - 5/5 Another excellent track, with again great lyrical and musical talent. Slightly shorter, and more remenicent of their older vein of music.
3) Living in your Letters - 4/5. Though another excellent song, having heard it a few times over it becomes a little old faster than many of the other tracks on the album. An excellent song nevertheless.
4) The Swiss Army Romance - 4/5. The title track doesn't let it down. A good song, though perhaps with a similar problem to track 3.
5) Turpentine Chaser 5/5. Without a doubt my favourite track on the album, great vocal range from Carrabba, best track lyrically; an overall awesome listen.
6) A Plain Morning - 5/5. Great song, a change from the vocal range and passion from Carrabba, moving to a more relaxed, sedated song.
7) Age Six Racer - 5/5. Short and sweet, the song delivers rosy lyrics with a brilliant acoustic accompanyment.
8) Again I go Unnoticed - 4/5. A distinctly more Emo song, the reason I docked a mark from this was because Carrabba had a poor vocal range on this, as he seemed to struggle to reach the top notes.
9) Ender will Save us All - 4/5. An excellent track, mellow but with passionate singing at times. Perhaps a little too long, my attention tends to wonder after the first four minutes of this plus 5 minute song.
10) Shirts and Gloves - 4/5.

I discovered Dashboard Confessional on the highly popular/controversial software program, Napster. Needless to say, after listening to a sample song or two, I went out and special ordered this CD from the local On Cue. WOW. I haven't changed CDs in my CD player yet!!! Chris Carrabba, who IS Dashboard Confessional, has one AWESOME voice and his lyrics are incredible. They are the most inspired lyrics that I've heard in a long time and I found myself relating to several of the songs. I also really like his accompaniment style with his acoustic guitar. Everything is acoustic and it all sounds really good!! If Dashboard Confessional isn't big now, they soon will be...Just listening to his music has made me feel inspired! Not enough good things can be said about this CD...I highly recommend purchasing Dashboard!
