Good Charlotte: The Chronicles Of Life And Death

Sound — 7
Compared to their other albums, 'The Chronicles Of Life And Death' has a cleaner tone to it, with less distortion on the guitar. however, their music style is still the same and can be easily be recognized as Good Charlotte. This is their third album after The Young and The Hopeless. A possible bad point about the album is that the songs tend to get boring after a while. the only songs from the whole album that deserves some credit 'I Just Wanna Live' and 'Predictable.' For the rest of the songs, they are just like any other songs out there, although they are all quite great. This album is not recommended for those who are looking for some Kick and excitement but more for any Good Charlotte fans.

Lyrics — 7
Lyrics are pretty normal, mostly based on the album's title, ' The Chronicles Of Life And Death ', which is also the 2nd track on the album. To be frank, the singer is not that great. What makes their music nice might be that his voice is unique and different from normal singers, but not that unique. The backing vocal is also unique in it's own way, and being Joel's twin brother, he and Joel are able to harmonies together quite well. However, in al, it's still a very normal album. Nothing too special about it.

Overall Impression — 8
As compared to other artists, it is just like any of the others. It has a couple of good songs in it, like 'I Just Wanna Live', 'Predictable', and 'The Chronicles Of Life And Death'. Other then these few songs, the rest of the songs in the album are wuite normal, again to say, nothing too special about it. It is then cleaner side of the band, with less distortion in the guitar and is totally different from their previous albums. If it was lost or stolen, I would consider buying it again, because I quite like Good Charlotte.
