Editorial Reviews

2011 sophomore album from the Las Vegas-based Alt-Rockers. Home School Valedictorian defines and hones in on the quartet's sound. The 11-track album definitely achieves the type of 'next level' sound the band strived for. Singles 'Sick', 'The Collapse' and 'I Wanna Be' are loaded with heavy guitar riffs layered under the intense unrivaled sound of DeJesus' lead vocals. Home School Valedictorian was recorded in 2010 at Malibu's Chateau Relaxo Studio, the album was produced by Dave Bassett (Shinedown, Josh Groban, Halestorm) and engineered by Tadpole (Disturbed, Finger Eleven).

Adelita's Way had quite a bit to follow up considering their debut album contained track after track of great music. It amazes me that more people have not heard of this band. For those fans of melodic rock, similar to Daughtry except with a bit more of an edge, Adelita's Way is the holy grail. Rick DeJesus and his fellow bandmates do a great job of hitting the rock tunes, like the debut single "Sick", in such a way that you quickly get hooked. Where Adelita's Way really sets themselves apart, however, is with their more emotionally charged ballads and mid-speed tunes. Home School Valedictorian delivers these songs in spades. "Alive", "Good Enough" and the power ballad "Hurt" prove that this band deserves everything good that happens to them. Great music that I would highly recommend to anyone. Cant wait to see them live when they come to our town in September.

I kind of stumbled across these guys browsing through Amazon reviews one night,and after reading all of the positive reviews,I thought,for 5.00$,what have I got to lose? It is well worth that and then some as they have a solid sound throughout,doing everything from power to ballads,and it all comes together very nicely. Even if you are a fan of the 80's/Classic scene,newer bands such as Alter Bridge/Shinedown/Breaking Benjamin,or into the more melodic side of things,there is something here for everyone. These guys are definitely worth a listen. I guarantee you it won't be your last.

Adelitas Way hasn't even released their third album yet, and it's already positive that they've avoided the jinx. This album is full of high energy hard rock, with my favorite track, The Collapse, and other great tracks such as the single Sick, and cuts Move, Somebody Wishes They Were You, and I Can Tell. Adelitas Way is definitely here to stay.

This is a super fantastic great product at a great price. I'm very happy with it and glad I made the purchase. You will be too, so don't wait until they are all gone. Trust me, if I didn't like it, I wouldn't say that I did. I like it a lot.

Adelitas Way came out with this second album and amazed me on mutiple songs on this album. The songs The Collapse and Sick got played so much on the radio truly great songs and enjoy them both over and over again. As for the rest of the album I didn't care for track 10 so ended up liking 10 out of 11 songs which is pretty good overall. But as for some personal favorites track 5 good enough, track 6 cage the beast, and track 8 somebody wishes they were you. If you love your rock music mixed with two softer songs then this is the rock album for you to enjoy as much as I did.

I saw Adelitas Way in concert at the Mayhem festival and I really liked them live, so I bought this album. Well, they really rock it out. I love them so much. I am obsessed with this album from the first track The Collapse (which was awesome live) to the last track Hurt, I love Criticize (freaking great live) which we can all see somebody we know who thinks they are so perfect that you can't criticize! Rick's vocals are some of the best, and ladies he's a hottie too! I look forward to more rocking albums from these guys in the future.

I had become a bit frustrated lately with the poor quality albums rock bands had been putting out lately. After listening to the samples songs Amazon provided it sounded like this new album by Adelitas Way was worth buying. Let me tell you that I was very pleased after listening to this album in full. I'd say I've listed to every track three times now and each and every song is just great! The first single released, "Sick", is just amazing and I love "Cage the Beast". It's so great to finally get a follow up album to a band's debut release that doesn't stink. So many bands these days come out strong initially and then they just don't put out quality music after that, or they do something different on a follow up album that made them successful on their first. Definately pick up this release by Adelitas Way, it's well worth it!

I had only heard a few songs from these guys on the radio over the last year or so. I usually listen to harder rock like Slipknot, etc. However I will listen to almost Anything else as long as it is Good!!

The band is more of a "mainstream" rock band if that makes sense? A band that you can play nearly every tune on the radio, etc. I decided to get the cd off Amazon a few months back. I was pleasantly surprised by just how many songs I actually liked on this album.

It must be mentioned that there are quit a few ballads or songs that are based around love,pain, a bad relationship, etc. But those songs are some of the best I have heard in awhile! Maybe I'm just a little biased too? As I am currently going through a bad break up. And some of the songs really hit home!!

Either way I have to highly recommend this cd, because it really IS that good!!
