Untitled track 5/5: This song really gets the mood going. It sounds as if it was supposed to be on The Places You Have come to Fear the Most, but it is alot more upbeat and the drums and piano and guitar is really driving.
Vindicated 4/5: This was never really my favorite song. Probably because it was played so much on the radio in the past couple years. But nevertheless it is a good song.
Don't Wait 4/5: This is a far stretch from traditional DC, as this whole album mostly is. Chris really belts out the lyrics in this song. The first single off the album.
Reason To Believe 5/5: The first dark sound dashboard song i have ever heard. (By the way i have never listen to the album prior to this, so i dont know if im right) The guitars are driving and Chris is belting once again.
Secret's in the Telling 5/5: No doubt this is the next single. This song to me is somewhat reminiscent to Vindicated.
Stolen 5/5: One of my favorite songs on the CD.Read more ›
This album is perfect for the time of year in which it was released because the feelings that it evokes are the same as the feelings of the upcoming end of summer. When I listen to the songs on this CD, they make me think of reminiscence and longing. There seems to be less direct sadness than in Chris's earlier songs; instead, there's an increased sense of nostalgia and beauty. It's the same feeling that you get when you're at the end of a fantastic summer: you're aware that that period of your life has past, never to be tasted again, and you find yourself looking back on it with fondness and a slight sense of loss. That's the feeling that I get when I slip this album into my CD player. They couldn't have found a title for this collection of songs that was more fitting!
While I must admit that the first few times I listened to this CD I longed for the days of the 'So Long EP' and the 'Swiss Army Romance,' but with every listen I found myself growing more and more attached to this album. From start to finish, this CD captures its listeners with some of Chris' best lyrics and best vocals yet. You'll find every songs repeating in your mind for days as you find yourself singing along each time, and the wonderful thing is, you won't mind the added soundtrack to your life. Furthermore, this album is a major step up from the slightly limp 'A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar' and though it only features one acoustic track, 'Dusk and Summer' in its entirety is a winner for Dashboard Confessional fans, Chris Carrabba fans, and new listeners alike.
Buy the CD and give it a few listens before you make your judgement. You won't be disappointed.
