Sound — 8
This album is a completely new sound to the Good Charlotte we all know. It is a little more on the pop side of music but still has some very catchy songs on it. 'Broken Hearts Parade' and 'The River' are in my opinion the two best songs on the album. The intro to 'Broken Hearts Parade' is really catchy and you never get sick of it. 'The River' is one of the best songs I have heard in years and combined with vocals from Avenged Sevenfold this makes it well worth listening to.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics in this album are quite good but not as good as their other albums. 'The Broken Parade' is the best song lyrically in my opinion. 'Victims of love' also is a very good song while songs like 'Keep your hands off my girl' are'nt quite as memorable for their lyrics. Overall the lyrics are pretty average on this album compare to what we all know they are capable of producing and this is the main part of the album that disappointed me.
Overall Impression — 8
I loved some off the riffs in it such as in 'Broken Hearts Parade' but some songs like 'Keep your hands off my girl' where the band tried to mix punk and rap were very disappointing. I think their other albums are much better for sound and for lyrics but I would still say that this albums is well worth buying if you have the chance.
