FTSK is Here ... To Stay?

Now, I love this album TO FREAKING DEATH. But, there are a few things I'd like to talk about. Good and bad. FTSK... These are my boys. I love them, but do they have longevity? I'm not so certain. Yeah, Jonathan's a very talented singer and Caleb's ability to write amazing harmonies is undeniable, but just how long will they be able to stick around? There are many "Powerpop" bands around (And getting popular due to Myspace and YouTube), but there's something fresh and different about these kids from Dallas. Could it be, oh I don't know ... Talent? I've done my research and I know talent from trash. These boys certainly aren't trash. In fact, they don't even come close. Let's measure up, shall we? Whoa Oh! (Me Vs. Everyone), 9/10 - The single, the hit, what made FTSK popular with the MTV audience. This song is quite well written if one is looking to make a hit. It's catchy, it's easy to sing along to, and anyone can rock out to it. Better than most. Hey Brittany, 7/10 - This is the song that MADE these guys. "Hey Brittany" has an amazing chorus and is in general a fun song. I'm just not sold on the lyrics and the way it pans out. Good song, none the less. My Worst Nightmare, 10/10 - Possibly the best song on the album? It's just good. I can't put it any other way. Believe Me, I'm Lying, 5/10 - I'm not a huge fan of this song. Although I realize that it's got it's hooks and is a decent piece of work. The Way She Moves, 10/10 - Maybe it's just the Third Eye Blind fanatic in me, but I love this song to death. It totally reminds me of good late '90s radio-rock. She's a Lady, 9/10 - The second single. I personally like the EP version better. It's more raw and the guitar sounds clearer. All-in-all this song is beyond belief. Check it out. Great track. Uh Huh, 6/10 - This certainly isn't my favourite. I got tired of it very quickly. But it's undeniable that these boys are something special. Phone Call, 5/10 - Not the best track. It's decent. Breakdown, 7/10 - Ooh la la. This song is exquisite. I like the EP version better, though. That for Me, 4/10 - My least favourite on the album, It's a good song, just not my thing I guess. Coffee Break, 10/10 - This song is so triumphant. What I like about it is that it isn't about a girl. It's about growing up and taking responsibility. I like this version better than the EP's because of the new bridge. It's beautiful. Catastrophe, 8/10 - Viral. It makes it's way into your brain and won't come out. I got tired of it quickly, but it's obvious that it's an amazing song. Indiana, 6/10 - Not up to their potential on this track, but it's a great song, of course. Better lyrics than most of the songs on the album, though. Becky Starz (Remix), 9/10 - I'm not a fan of remixes. If you can, I suggest you download the original from FTSK's EP Television Off, Party On. Well, there you have it. I couldn't find an un-entertaining piece on this album. Although, to an untrained listener some of the songs can sound the same. The lyrics might not be genius or have much depth, but they have time to grow and blossom into something great. I expect much more and am eager to witness the next step. I strongly urge you to buy this if you are a fan of The Maine, Hit the Lights or All Time Low. But, I must let you know that FTSK blows all powerpop bands out of the water. Oh, and one more thing. Where's 'I Don't Know About You, But I Came To Dance? That's my favourite song and they didn't even slip it into the album. What a shame. Underdog Alma Mater, a succesful debut.

WOW - these guys are Amazing!

If you have yet to get this album, you will be 'forever the happiest person' when you do. It's so refreshing to find GRADE A material. 'Whoa Oh' is HUGE. You've likely already heard it everywhere. The good news is there is a lot more beef to this album than just a few hit tracks. I expect several MAJOR mainstream hits from this album.... beyond just Whoa Oh and Hey Brittany. Catastrophe is SOLID... and Uh Huh... it's all good!

ftw ftw ftw,

Absolutely worth every penny, these guys are amazing. Pretty much every track on this album is something you want to hear. Ahh I love it. =))


Formed: 2006 in Dallas, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Forever the Sickest Kids received their first break mere days after forming, when lead singer Jonathan Cook inadvertently spent several hundred dollars for front-page song placement on With no songs to their name, the Dallas-based musicians were forced to hurriedly pound out a track so as not to waste their money. Formed from the ashes of Ben Bradley and the Flipside, two local bands that had called it quits in late 2006, the group quickly got to work creating its first emo-pop song....
