Customer Reviews

I would buy this CD for this song alone.
Ralph Brown
Hellogoodbye is just doing what they want and making fun music that is very enjoyable, and that is what makes me like them.
Greg
It just sounds as if they are taking the hip sound and forgetting what made that sound was hip was quality song writing.

Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! is the perfect party album. The music is fun, upbeat, and whimsical. It begs you to dance along.

At first I was a bit apprehensive that Hellogoodbye's full-length would be too cheesy with overwhelming annoying synth and poorly crafted lyrics. I thought this whole album would mirror my initial reactions of "Call and Return" off their ep. I was pleased that none of the songs on Z!A!V!D! included one syllable words repeated to fit the desired syllable count and that keys were more sporatic. I also find the vocal effects aren't overdone, but simply make the music more enjoyable.

My favorite tracks are numbers 2 and 11 (Here in Your Arms and Two Weeks In Hawaii). Although Two Weeks in Hawaii was previously a demo downloadable online, I feel they way they revamped the song made it worth buying the album.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this album for anyone interested in having a good time or in need of something to dance to. The perfect pick me up CD.

I love this CD. I bought it because I had heard "Here in your arms" and "Oh, it is love", but was really surprised when I heard songs on the CD that I loved even more. If you listen to it all the way through it kinds of reads like a love story.

I've always liked synths in music, regardless of the genre. I wasn't too impressed with their older EP, but I knew they were doing what they wanted, and not hopping onto some trend.

Anyway, to the full length. Forrest has a great singing voice and is backed-up by great pop/synth beats, bass, and drums (in some songs). I heard the first single from the new cd "Here (In Your Arms)" and I listened to it countless times the day I first heard it. It's a really catchy song with nice lyrics and a great beat. I was hooked on it. On their website, they had samples of each song, and after hearing the samples I was convinced to go buy it.

I got this cd at Best Buy for $7.99, and if you buy it there it also comes with a bonus dvd as well. Every song on this cd is great. The song with the ukulele, "Oh, It Is Love" is great too. Some songs have actual drums in them, some don't. Hellogoodbye is just doing what they want and making fun music that is very enjoyable, and that is what makes me like them. I would suggest this to anyone who likes synth beats, sometimes real instruments with amazing vocals layed over them. This is a great cd, start to finish. Go buy it. You will love it.

I picked up this CD because I liked its Top 10 track "Here (In Your Arms)." While the rest of the songs aren't quite as good as that one, the album holds together pretty well with a collection of cheerful, upbeat songs that fall somewhere between rock and techno dance-pop.

Although most of the songs are guitar-type numbers, there is a surprisingly little amount of heavy guitar activity in the album. Even the songs that have a lot of guitar in them ("All Time Lows," "Homewrecker") don't feel overdone, like the electric guitar is in the spotlight. The guitars don't dominate, they support. Predominant in many of the tracks is a heavy dose of synthesizers, which, combined with the heavy beats and the cool digital effects sometimes applied to the vocals ("Here In Your Arms," "Touchdown Turnaround"), add a techno feel which is pretty cool.

"Stuck To You" and "Homewrecker" show that Hellogoodbye does a surprisingly good job with upbeat songs in a minor key. One of the middle tracks, "Baby, It's Fact," is musically a little different from the rest of the album, with a strong melody and a sycopated, classic feel which sounds so good that Hellogoodbye would do well to make more songs like it.

The lyrics are mostly lightweight pop love choruses, with a strong twenty-first century emphasis, such as in "I Saw It On Your Keyboard." With the focus on young love and the frequent modern references, Hellogoodbye is a decidedly Gen-Y band. The album doesn't end well, with a confusing "Two Weeks In Hawaii" that departs from the feel of the rest of the album without much success. Another thing that should be a kiss of death is that the album title has nothing whatsoever to do with any of the lyrics.

Bottom line: There's better music out there.

If your looking for an amazing mix of techno and popular rock forget about Panic!'s repetitive boring take and try out hellogoodbye. Their songs actually sound like thay have a point instead of just repeating the same 4 lines over and over again like Panic! The synthed up vocals in 10 really add to the effect of a dance song. Its my favorite just because of the catchy beat and great flow. As stated this is a great pick-me-up record of love from an innocent point of view. Could be used as a small valentines gift if nothing else, it will surly make her/him smile every time they listen to it

So.

I've been waiting for this CD for so freaking long and it's finally here.

Most of the songs have been for [illegal] download for a while, just because forrest's laptop got stolen [read in AP] but I would have to say.

every new version is wayyyyy better.

as well as all the other songs.

This CD is defiantly awesome.

It makes me happy, every song is a happy love song.

Go buy it
