Album Review

Imagine the anthemic power of Iron Maiden, the ambitious pop of Joshua Tree-era U2, and the energetic tension of Sunny Day Real Estate all thrown together in a blender and you can begin to understand where Juliana Theory is coming from. Taking their melodic emo rock to a place far beyond anything they've attempted before, Love is a melting pot of rock & roll elements that is hard to pin down into any category.

Their songs display dynamics, skill, and attention to melodious detail that defies their youthful, upbeat, and often lyrical optimistic personas. The Juliana Theory formed in western Pennsylvania in 1997 around vocalist Brett Detar, bassist...
