Album Review

Oh, Boys Like Girls. With their eponymous debut for Red Ink, the Boston quartet marks its entry into the effervescent world of sugary, emo-blasted pop/rock. They've got the gleaming guitars, urgent vocals, and driving rhythms propelling three-minute ditties about their hearts, their girls, and those girls who just like to toy with their poor hearts. But unlike similarly styled bands, Boys Like Girls are largely lacking much of anything that could either separate them from the pack or, at the very least, give them more substance to appeal to more than just the teenaged girls who will be singing along enthusiastically at shows while secretly pining for the shaggy-haired, boyish clan. Boys Like Girls are simply without the overwhelming catchiness of the All-American Rejects or the unbridled enthusiasm of the City Drive. Instead, listeners are left with an offering that is almost catchy and enthusiastic. Even the few standouts — like the summer drive of "The Great Escape" and "Heels Over Head" — will be pretty hard to recall by the lukewarm album's end. Regardless, those looking for a quick fix will surely eat up the likes of Boys Like Girls.

The Next Big Thing

I found this band on myspace and loved what I heard. Took a chance and ordered the cd, loved it. They are beyond incredible. Lyrics? so touching and easy to relate to. Singer's vocals? extremely soothing and amazing. Music? Great to get ready to go out to or just relax to.. In two or three years everyone will know these guys. I highly recommend you check them out now!!

Simply Amazing.

I am so happy that iTunes has this album, and as the title of this review states, it is simply amazing! Not only does it offer well-thought out and original lyrics, but it also provides the listener with a sense that they can relate with any of the songs, no matter how it is interpretated. Be it a happy feeling, or a sad, Boys like Girls pins them both in a stylish and enjoyable way. 5 stars.

Boys Like Girls is there to stay! Their first album, this one, is so powerful!! All the lyrics have deep meanings. Martin Johnson = Great great great voice. He's better than so many singers. After hearing ''Dance Hall Drug'' - I decided just to be know be a kid. No drugs, no Martin said. Up Against The Wall - gets an excellent chorus & melody. <3 Thunder - whoa. everyone loves this song. so cute! (your voice was the soundtrack of my summer) Brief, they're better than AAR (some people compare BLG to them). =) Buy this album||
