Sound — 7
Just like their previous albums, "Mayday Parade" have come out with heartfelt songs full of raw emotion. They kept their previous pop-punk sound, it felt as though they never really changed their style of music at all. In my personal opinion, after listening to the album, the songs all sounded the same. There was no really shining song in the album. Don't get me wrong, their all great tracks, but I was hoping for a really noticeable song.
Lyrics — 9
Their lyrics are amazing as they always were. Full of raw emotion that really tugs on your heartstrings. Just as their previous albums, most, if not all of the songs are about love. Whether it be about getting over someone, or falling in love again. You can tell that they really took their time writing these songs. I absolutely love the lyrics, even though I'm not a huge Mayday Parade fan.
Overall Impression — 9
Overall, I think this album is great though slightly repetitive. But don't let that deter you from buying this album. I highly recommend it for anyone who is or has dealt with a broken heart before. The most recognizable song from the album would have to be the first song "Oh Well, Oh Well". It starts with a slow piano and Derek singing. It starts of slow and them shifts into a fast pop-punk tempo.
