Editorial Reviews

The pop punk/alternative rock band reigning
from Jacksonville, Florida returns to the
spotlight with its eighth studio album,
Southern Air, out this summer.
With over two million albums sold and eight
singles that have received significant Top 40
and alternative radio airplay including the
smash "Ocean Avenue", Yellowcard's most
recent studio album, When You're Through
Thinking, Say Yes debuted at #19 on
Billboard's Top 200 albums and top ten charts
when released last spring.
Yellowcard have been hard at work in the
studio with longtime producer Neal Avron
working on Southern Air which features guest
vocals from Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low,
Cassadee Pope of Hey Monday and Tay
Jardine of We Are The In Crowd.

Format: MP3 Music
Since 2011, every Yellowcard concert has included a new and very personal tribute. Lead singer Ryan Key steps into a solitary spotlight with his slate black guitar. He engages the audience with the story about how he started as a musician in thanks to one person in particular. He dedicates the next song, "Sing for Me," to his Aunt Stephanie. The crowd respectfully cheers, and it's plain to see he's not the same boy who left home before he could legally drink alcohol.

At nineteen, Key dropped out of Florida State University. He knew there was nothing else for him to do with his life but play music. When he told his parents he was heading to the west coast, they were unsupportive. But his Aunt Stephanie believed in him. She rode with him three thousand miles out to California. Before she said goodbye, she told him to live his life, and always follow his heart.

Nearly a decade later, Stephanie was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In 2011, she was given less than twelve months to live. Aggressive, experimental treatments followed with no guarantees. At the time, Yellowcard was just resurfacing out of their two-year hiatus. During the recording sessions for "When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes," Key wrote "Sing for Me" in for his Aunt Stephanie. She died shortly after the release of the album, and since then, he's sung her eulogy at every concert.

In 2012's "Southern Air," Aunt Stephanie gets one more song.

For the most part, this latest album is a tribute to summer music, and in particular, their roots in Jacksonville.

"The Surface of The Sun" kicks the door down with a huge rock sound, one of the more aggressive songs in the Yellowcard catalog. The drums and guitars are big here, and the song shares similarities with a sister track, "Rivertown Blues," later in the sequencing. The latter of these two is more impressive, and is also the uncontested album highlight for me, with a punk-first beat from Parsons and a wailing guitar solo from Ryan Mendez. Parsons goes wild on the drums during the prechorus as Key sings, "You wanna know what I'm thinking? / I think about back then / Back when we built something new / The world was ours to conquer / And we were not afraid to lose ourselves."

As always, Yellowcard throws in a few slower songs to mix up the pacing during the album's 10 tracks, and they each serve a different purpose. "Telescope" is a brooding, building number, reminiscent most of the Paper Walls era, while "Ten" is the emotional highpoint of the album. Key delivers an intensely heartfelt story about a child lost before birth, with so many personal references that an overcoming image is drawn up for the listener. The song is so intimate and so strongly impacted by Mackin's emotive violin underbelly that by the time it's over, you come up for air, gasping for breath - it's Key's strongest effort on an album full of strong efforts. The other midtempo song, the Patrick Stump-co-written "Here I Am Alive," again allows Key's lyrics come to the forefront, this time as he offers insight into the highs and lows of his band's career and hiatus.

"Sleep In the Snow" ignites the middle section of the album, with "A Vicious Kind" providing the back end of an impressive one-two punch.

I have been an avid fan of YellowCard since I heard them on SSX. They have great music but since their Ocean Avenue album, I have been feeling mixed feelings on their music. This album is for those alternative rock fans that liked their earlier work as it is more light-hearted and I feel the presence of the violin more in each song.

Saw that one of my fav bands from the late 90s early 2000s had a new albulm out. I played some samples and liked what I heard so I decided to pick it up. In the last month or so I have picked up some new music. Southern Air from Yellowcard is one of if not my fav. Tracks like Always Summer are in constant rotation. When I am down just put in Here I am alive to get me going from work to work out or personal life. YellowCard just good music thanks!!

Let's keep this brief. If you like Yellowcard, I think you'll like this album. Their sound is not the same as it was in their first albums, but who keeps the same sound always? I've been very pleased with my purchase and I'm really glad I bought it. If you offered me my money back in exchange for the album, I would definitely say no thank you, I'll keep the album!

I really like this album. It's more mellow, engaging, and addictive. Their past songs are great too, but this album is more than great.

I would recommend this album to anyone who's a fan of this band, but also to those who are not. You will not be upset.

To put it simply, this album is Yellowcard to it's very core. With tones of Ocean Ave coming through and the usual mix of rock anthems with deeper emotional songs, this album certainly does not disappoint. To all the Yellowcard fans out there (who are probably the ones reading this)this album reminds you of the first time you ever heard one of their songs. It takes you back to a better place. In fact, the last words of the album sum it up best: "Seems the only truth I know, this will ALWAYS BE HOME." And listening to that CD... I'm home.
