I was so excited for this album to come out! And when I first listened to it I was so disappointed! "What is it exactly? County? Pop? I don't know! I don't even think they know!" Those were my first thoughts when I listened to this. The title song, Crazy World: "Whistling? Really? Who is this, the Brady Bunch? Maybe the Partridge Family?" Oh, how they've changed. I was expecting some of that high-energy music that makes me want to drive fast (Contagious). They're not the same guy-liner, emo-rock band that we all loved. That being said... once I kicked my expectations to the curb, I freed my mind to enjoy this new style. If you are initially having those same thoughts, give it a chance. Like all of us, these guys have grown and changed (quite handsomely, I might add) and so has their music! While I am saddened to think we will never have any more of their "old" style, the new album is awesome. After I had a couple months to play it through, I was singing right along with all the songs that I thought I wouldn't like. I even attempt to whistle with Crazy World (though, for me, that is usually just a bunch of air and spit flying from my mouth).

Here are my thoughts on each song (though take them with a grain of salt, as we really love the songs that relate to where we are in are lives, don't we?):

The First Time (9/10): a song about reminiscing. I kind of liked this one right off the bat, though it still sounded a little pop-country to me. Now I love it! The lyrics are pretty amazing, as is Martin's voice (if he ever gives up BLG, he could probably have a career as a country singer).

Life of the Party (7/10): I initially hated this one - too much pop for me - but now it's definitely a head-bopper that I love.

This cd might be my new favorite Boys Like Girls cd. Though it isn't their normal punk vibe type music, but it's more of a pop/punk which is totally fine with me! I ordered from ZiaRecords and the cd came earlier than expected and the cd came just as they described it.

I would definitely recommend this cd to a friend!

I bought the new album by Boys Like Girls, "Crazy World", on Tuesday and have been listening to it off an on since then.

While I don't hate it, I'm stuck in the like stage, not love. With this 3rd album Boys Like Girls decided to go in a more boy band/poppy direction. I do love some boy bands (Backstreet forever!) but I had really hoped at Boys Like Girls would have more of the punk/alt. rock themed songs from their first album. None of the songs on the new album even come close to comparing to "Thunder", "The First One" or "The Great Escape" for me.

That said, my favorite song from the new album is "Stuck in the Middle". The lyrics:

I guess this time I'll wait it out
Someday things will be perfect
It will be worth it all this time
Stuck in the middle
I know things will get better
Hold it together
Take your time
Stuck in the middle

You push and then you shove
You hate and then you love
You try to switch it up
But you're stuck in the middle
No matter what you do
No matter how you choose
Well, either way you're gonna lose
When you're stuck in the middle.
I guess this time I'll wait it out

...these lyrics are just perfect for the It Gets Better Project. It's a beautiful, uplifting, hopeful song.

I'm still a fan but I'll stick with the older music more than this new album.

Amazon was the only place that carried this cd except for the Boys Like Girls website. This is a great band that writes their own songs and really GOOD songs. If you haven't listened to them you should!

The band has matured in this album but some songs are questionable. "I Lied," an unreleased track should have been on the album. Overall, it's a solid album with solid songwriting from Martin and the band mates.

Wow, I don't remember Boys Like Girls sounding so Country!!!
I downloaded this while I was getting dressed in the morning and was able to get it on to my iPod for my commute to work. I got through maybe 4 songs and decided that if I was going to listen to country type music I was going to switch back to Taylor Swift's Red. It was funny to hear a song where they specifically sing "Boys Like Girls is back" and thinking... I'm not really sure this is the same band. They sound the same, but they don't. Plus, the only band that I want to hear singing about being back is the Backstreet Boys.
Good try Boys Like Girls. I might try to get through the album... but so far the 7.99 I paid for the mp3 album seems pretty steep.
