Sound — 10
The sound is just awesome, it pretty much renders me speechlesss. The intro for Mr. Brightside is so unique in sound and fingering that I had trouble playing it, of course I'm not the most skilled person in the world. All around greatness!
Lyrics — 8
Singer skills? The best I've ever heard. The only reason I bought this album was because a friend of mine had it, and I liked the cover, but the lyrics flow gracefully together like the words of a poet. Sniff beautiful. And yet there is Mr. Brightside that pretty much repeats itself over and over again untill youre tired of it. So, that punches itself in the gut.
Overall Impression — 10
The most impressive song from this album is probably Smile Like You Mean It. In comparison to other albums, this is everything that you ever need. Love? Everything! What do I haste about this? Absolutely nothing. If stolen, I would murder the person who took it, then buy two more copies!
