Released: Jul 2007
Label: Capitol Records
Pop-punk all-stars Yellowcard deliver yet another solid release with their fifth studio album, a familiar dose of jagged guitar hooks, candid lyrics and aggressively layered violin. Songs like "Five Becomes Four" and "Date Line (I Am Gone)" relive the 2004 breakthrough single "Ocean Avenue" with crunchy licks and catchy melodrama. "Dear Bobbie" is the ultimate tear-jerker, an acoustic ballad featuring recordings of lead singer Ryan Key's 87-year-old grandfather reading a love letter to his wife.
