Good Charlotte blasted onto the scene with a song about High School and life.

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!!!

I think the new albums of GC are great. I'm glad they did change with their music, but we all know that they have their old music inside them still. It would be pretty boring if they had the same music from their last albums. I'm glad they made a change.

Wow, it seems as if there's no one here who is unbiased about this album. It's either, "Oh my God, Good Charlotte is like totally the most awesome band ever. They can even do a rap song. I mean how many punk bands can pull that off?" or it's "Good Charlotte should all be shot. They're just a bunch of poser MTV losers. They're not f'ing punk. They're whiny annoying little brats. I should know, I have every Black Flag album and like 90 tattoos. I'm f'in hardcore." Here's my honest, un-biased opinion. This isn't a great album. Nor is it terrible. They're not even trying to be pop-punk on this album. In a lot of ways they've changed much like Blink 182 did on their unlistenable self-titled album. Yes, there is a rap-influenced song on here. And even with a chorus that sounds influenced by early 90's Red Hot Chili Peppers, it really does suck. But a few of the songs aren't bad. "Ghost of You" is a catchy little ditty with some interesting instrumentation. Several of the songs employ folk techniques, and others do have a little bit of a pop-punk power chord structure. But overall the melodies are good, and the lyrics could be a lot worse. This isn't an amazingly artistic album, it won't turn heads or win over the pretentious crowd. But as a guilty pleasure it ain't half bad.

The Chronicles of Life and Death

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.
