Editorial Reviews

Rock sensations Good Charlotte are back with their highly anticipated fifth full-length album Cardiology almost exactly 10 years after their self-titled debut put them on the map as one of the most exciting bands of the decade. Originally formed as a pop-punk band in Waldorf, Maryland, in 1996, Good Charlotte—vocalist Joel Madden, guitarist Benji Madden, guitarist Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and the latest edition, drummer Dean Butterworth—have penned countless mainstream radio hits such as “The Anthem,” “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” and “Hold On.” However more importantly the band have constantly reinvented themselves and refused to limit their potential, whether that means supporting Justin Timberlake on his FutureSex/LoveShow tour or collaborating with Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows and Synyster Gates on their hit single “The River” from Good Charlotte’s 2007 full-length Good Morning Revival. That adventurous musical persona continues with Cardiology, an album that features everything from the dance floor-friendly first single “Like It’s Her Birthday” to future GC anthems such as “Silver Screen Romance,” while still effortlessly retaining the band’s signature sound in the process. While in some ways Cardiology is a return to form for these multiple Warped Tour headliners, it also manages to work in elements from throughout the band's classic catalog to create an album that simultaneously summarizes what Good Charlotte are all about and hints at where they are headed in the future. While musical trends can be fleeting, Good Charlotte have always proved themselves to be a constant in the music world by sticking to their punk roots without being afraid to expand their horizons and bring in new influences—and Cardiology is just the latest chapter in the band's already unparalleled career. We can’t wait to see what the second decade holds in store with Good Charlotte and share Cardiology with the band’s myriad fans and supporters who have been clamoring for this record.

I wanted to love this album. When both Joel and Benji had made comments about getting back to their roots, and how Cardiology would not be dance-y like Good Morning Revival was, I allowed myself to hope.

In a way, the sound is more "Good Charlotte" than GMR was. I'll probably listen to this CD more than Good Morning Revival.

But something is missing. It doesn't seem to have the heart that Good Charlotte's earlier albums did. Several songs, such as "1979," "Silver Screen Romance," and "Counting The Days" have more of the old Good Charlotte type of sound and are fun enough to listen to. However, they feel almost forced, a little desperate. They don't seem to have the "natural" feel of classic Good Charlotte stuff. As simplistic as the music style on their self-titled CD was, it seemed very raw, true, and natural. Some of the music on Cardiology feels too much like they were trying to recapture a part of their past and it's just not there anymore. It tries a little too hard.

Added to that, a few of the songs seem like they belonged on GMR. "Like It's Her Birthday" and "Last Night" in particular stand out, and not in a good way. And then "Sex On The Radio" is just so silly and ridiculous (but not in an intentional, kitchy, tounge- in-cheek way), you feel embarrassed that anyone thought it was a quality enough song to put on the CD.

And then the intro and title track. The album opens with "Introduction to Cardiology." If nothing else, this should have been left out. Good Charlotte seems to think that because they did so on Young and the Hopeless, Chronicles, and GMR, they have to open a new CD with an intro, mostly instrumental track.

I began listening to Good Charlotte during my senior year of highschool back in 2000. Absolutely loved the the first album "Self Entitled" and would still consider myself to be a fan to this day. Sure, there is a huge difference from the first album Good Charlotte gave us as opposed to their more recent stuff and of course my music taste has changed a lot in the last ten years. However, I think Good Charlotte still delivers in this album. Many of the songs still provide good hooks. The main reason I am giving this album 3 stars only as opposed to 4 is that I wasn't quite as impressed as I thought I would be. Good Charlotte made a lot of claims about heading back to their old roots on this album and built up a lot of anticipation on how long the album took and how they had scrapped what they were originally working on and started over. If they were trying to duplicate their self entitled album...they didn't achieve that goal. However, there are some good songs on here if you are looking for that original good charlotte sound such as "Counting The Days". It's not a 5 star album by any means however, it's worth the 10 bucks or so it costs.

This is the fifth major album by Good Charlotte. Overall a decent effort but not quite as good as Good Morning Revival. "Like It's Her Birthday" was the first single released off of the album and in my opinion is the best song. The Madden brothers have put out a good but in my opinion not great album. The following is my rating of each song:

1. Introduction to Cardiology--(4/5): A nice less than a minute intro track. Nothing special.

2. Let the Music Play--(3/5): Very happy song. Probably a bit too much repetition on the "let the music play" lyrics. The song itself doesn't say very much to me. Upbeat and nice but very regular.

3. Counting the Days--(3/5): Another upbeat song. "Three's company is not my style, it's just you and me." A guy pining for his girlfriend who he hasn't seen for a while. Nothing special but catchy.

4. Silver Screen Romance--(4/5): First very solid track of the album. Great harmony. Complex lyrics a bit tough to follow. "Living in a silver screen romance" and pointing to individual screen stars asking if you are Betty Davis or Carey Grant or others. "All dressed up and ready to go for a ride" is the lyric from this song which pretty much sums up this song.

5. Like It's Her Birthday-(5/5): First single released on this album. Very catchy. Definitely the single that people are talking about from this album. Great harmony around "like's it's her birthday" lyrics.

6. Last Night--(4/5): A funky, psychedelic sounding tune at the beginning rolling right into a fast, upbeat solo. " I knew when I met her I wouldn't take it slow." Very good beat throughout the song.

7. Sex on the Radio--(4/5): Another song with a very funny sounding start to it but quickly rolls into something ok but not great.

A quick disclaimer, I'm writing this as the boys are occasionally doing gigs but not as Good Charlotte and yes I have listened to the album. I'd give it 3 maybe 3 1/2. Good Charlotte has always been either awesome, terrible or somewhere in between. I didn't discover them until I heard a few of the songs off of TYATH and saw the videos on TV. My general feeling/opinion of this band are similar to Linkin Park; They are still good, just different, and some people have a problem with that. I'm not saying this album deserves 5 stars but a quick skim of the comments shows a fair amount of people thought they were getting really old school Good Charlotte. Granted I didn't hear what they said when they were making this album but going back to your roots doesn't mean repeating them. People complain that Linkin Park is too different now why aren't they like they were (musically) on Hybrid Theory? One they are at least thirty now and married/have serious girlfriends. Two, some of them are newly clean and sober. Their life experiences are different and so is their music; same thing with Good Charlotte. They aren't angry teenagers anymore and I think that's a good thing. Sure they've had some missteps but now that they are just Benji and Joel w/touring band it's just not the same. I'm one of the weirdos that likes GMR sure it took a few listen throughs to fully appreciate it, but now it's one of my favorite albums. I cannot say the same for this album. It's decent but not great, it IS closer to their roots, but I feel the instrumentals are forced and some of the songs belong on a different album. Honestly I think that's it, this feels like two discs jammed together, a punk album and a pop album not a punk-pop album (which is what I've always thought of them as.Read more ›
