Love Drunk by Boys Like Girls
Released: Sep 2009
Label: Columbia
Its super-emo title aside, the Boys' second album finds them stretching their wings beyond their genre. Nowhere is that more apparent than on the duet with Taylor Swift, of all people. Both "Two Is Better Than One" and "Someone Like You" (which is a waltz, for the love of Tennessee!) are emotional, dramatic and richly sung. So ... kinda like emo. Whether it's about new connections or varying degrees of experimentation ("Contagious," for instance, tries on a super-cute, mall-punk angle), the unexpected is perfectly balanced with plenty of the rock angst we like the Boys for.
