Ludo: You're Awful, I Love You

Sound — 10
The sound that Ludo has is quite unique even though they sound a lot like other bands. You may think this does'nt make any sense but I think they sound differents because of the moog. The album "Your Awful, I Love You" has the story telling of "Broken Bride" and the full on rock ballads of "Ludo". The album is a mixture of soft and rock songs that balance out equally, this makes all the songs sound different and does'nt leave you saying "isnt this the same song as track 5"

Lyrics — 10
"Your Awful, I Love You" has some of the best lyrics that I have heard in a long time. It uses the story telling of Broken Bride which is uniqe and brilliant compared to the usual love songs of other bands and the bouncy rock songs from "Ludo. Andrew Volpe has a wonderful voice that's puts some other singers to silence, he sounds a lot like Justin Pierre from "Motion City Soundtrack", which is a very big compliment.

Overall Impression — 10
"Your Awful, I Love You" is the best album I have ever heard. The vocals of Andrew Volpe mixed with the brilliant guitar of Tim Ferrel will leve you hanging on for the next tune from Tim Convy's moog. The best songs from the album are "Love Me Dead", "Topeka", "Such As It Ends", "Lake Ponchatrain", "Scream, Scream, Scream" and "In Space". I love everything about this album, the hidden bonus track sung by Tim Ferrel at the end of "In Space tops it off I say thank god for Ludo. If I lost this CD I would cry all the way to my computer order it again and sit on the mailbox until it arrived. One last word. Remember sleep is the most important meal of the day.

    'A Fever You Can't Sweat Out' or 'Pretty. Odd.' Panic?

    they sound nothing like panic. panic is a little more indie and ludo is slightly more rockish.

    Wow i'm in the same boat but broken bride beats anything on this album you should check it out
    I saw them with Relient K in Baltimore back in October and they put on a real quirky, goofy show but they were suprisingly entertaining. and when i met them for autographs they were extremely down to earth, friendly guys. i don't have their cd yet but i should probably go buy it cuz this is the kind of band thats worth supporting
    great cd overall, love me dead and drunken lament clearly stand out but i think overlooked is scream scream scream. Theyre all pretty good though
    just checked again and yep, still sound exactly like panic at the disco
