Motion City Soundtrack: I Am The Movie

Sound — 9
This CD has a mellow but alivening sound to it. I like the keyboard in all of their songs. It's cool to watch the keyboard player live. But overall, really good sound- unique, iff you will. Maybe they could have a few more guitar solos, although they sort of have them, but the singer is singing (what else would he be doing) when it's happening.

Lyrics — 8
I like their singer's voice, especially when he goes falsetto for a note or two or when he sings fast for a second or two. The lyrics aren't not anything out of the ordinary though. I think "My Favorite Accident" would be a good song to play/sing to your ex though.

Overall Impression — 9
This is a great album. It sort of gives me a vibe to go ride bmx, although I only skateboard. Motion city soundtrack is kind of a weird name, bu that has nothing to do with why I would like or dislike this album. I've been waiting to get it and iit met my expectations. Definatly a good dabeut album. I'd also like to get commit to memory, and I'm looking forward to what they put out in years to come.
