They continued their path with music about celebrity and longing.
Now...with this CD...they face their pain. Their father left them, and they use that to their advantage. Joel's vocals are deeper. He whines less, which is nice. The music is more mature and I definitely enjoy the lyrics more.
One of the standout tracks is "The World is Black". I was shocked by this song, because the music is so adorably cute but the lyrics are so dark and hopeless. It's a contrast that leaves me melancholy yet excited at the same time.
The best thing about this album is the use of the orchestral sounds. I've always found that two intruments in popular music strike a "chord" (pun intended) inside me, twanging my emotions. Piano, and strings. They definitely use the strings. On a couple of tracks, "Predictable" in particular, it grabs you right away. Well, it grabs me, anyway. Im a sucker for a good beginning. This CD delivers.
It lacks a fifth star because I am giving them room to grow. This isn't them fulfilling their potential, but they are definitely getting there.
Check it out!!!

By Good Charlotte
WOW! What an amazing CD! So creative, totally differs from their usual sound, yet combines both of their earlier CD's with such growth that the sound is totally their own. With a mix of punk, rock, and alternative, they really stir it up.
Track 1 features a Chinese choir's rendition of life and death with a breathtaking musical score. You don't need to know Chinese to understand what they're saying. It was still written by Joel and Benji, but translated into Chinese later. Track 2, "The Chronicles of Life and Death", is so amazing that it will blow you out of the water. It combines philosophy with a melodious, yet dark beat. Track 3, "Walk Away (maybe)", starts with a great guittar riff, but a slightly less hard-rock song. (just slightly) Very reminescent of their first CD, but has an alternative mix. Track 4, "SOS"., is so strong it gives you goosebumps. When you feel like you need help, this song is great. With such a strong message, it is very similar to "Hold On". Track 5, "I Just Wanna Live", is fantastic! It's kindof alternative rock with a little 80's influence. It's lyrics are unbreakably powerful. One of my all-time favorites of theirs. Track 6, "Ghost of You", is good and worth listenning to, but not one of the strongest on the album. Track 7,"Predictable", YES! This is the Good Charlotte we saw in their last album's track, "The Young and the Hopeless", once again reffering to their dad's problems. They leave him behind in an angry spirit that you don't often find in Joel or Benji. Track 8, "Secrets", is not a stand-out, but it's very good. You have to listen a few times before you truly get it. Track 9, "The Truth", is pretty mellow, but not bad. Worth your time, but there are better on the album.Read more ›
