After a long hiatus, Good Charlotte gain perspective but definitely don’t lose their edge. On the aptly titled Youth Authority, the reunited pop-punk icons sound every bit as dangerous and energetic as they did when they formed two decades ago—from the nostalgic charge of every anthem to the comforting bounce of their choruses. “We’re not burning out,” Joel Madden shouts on its stormy closer. “We’re just moving on.”
I love that they are back, and every song so far on this album is brilliant! They sound just as good as ever, keeping that feel good sound which makes you want to turn the volume to the max! Well worth the wait :)
This is awesome
love this album bought a few songs to begin with to see if they were any good now i want the hole album. Love it.
1. Life Changes (9/10)
The energy is immediately present from the first cry of 'Let's go, it's open season!'. Fantastic sing along chorus, the first of many on this album. Excellent upbeat melody and very good vocals
2: Makeshift Love (7/10)
Decent choice as lead single. Another powerful melody, and another excellent chorus. Lyrics aren't the best but the vocals are on point as is almost always the case with the Madden brothers.
3: 40 oz Dream (9/10)
Lyrics are a little bit wishy washy an cheesy, particularly in the verses but definitely catchy. Another ear worm chorus too, full of nostalgia and with a good beat. Vocals are good once again.
4: Life Can't Get Much Better (9/10)
Excellent 'ballad' of sorts - heart felt verse lyrics, before another memorable chorus. Great melody particular the drums from Dean. Really good vocals particularly the bridge.
5: Keep Swingin' (4/10)
One of the dud tracks on the album. A collaboration with an excellent singer in Kellin Quinn, but it flops unfortunately.
6: Reason To Stay (9.5/10)
Complete contrast to the previous song - an excellent collab with Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil.
Very good opening verse by Simon, heart felt with excellent lyrics before an explosive group chorus. The group chanting is a plus point too, before a strong second verse by one of the brothers.
Lyrics are strong as is the melody - best song on the album for me.
7: Stray Dogs (8/10)
No let up in quality - yet another excellent track. Lyrics solid, and yet another strong, catchy chorus. Vocals are superb once again - a major plus point on this album.
8: Stick to Your Guns (5/10)
Bit hard to rate an interlude but always find these sorts of 'songs' pointless.
9: The Outfield (4/10)
A rare dud on this album, but it is always hard to get a 10/10 perfect album. Chorus is upbeat again but overall the song just lacks that something
10: Cars Full of People (8/10)
A solid album track - following a familiar formula on this album of excellent verses followed by a upbeat catchy chorus.
Vocals excellent again - absolutely faultless, and the lyrics are pretty solid too.
Melody very strong too - drums are a stand out across the album.
11: War (7/10)
Probably the most upbeat song on the album - not just the chorus this time.
A pounding melody combined with precise, considered vocals.
12: Moving On (8/10)
Solid closer to a fantastic album. Lyrics aren't the best but again there's no faulting the vocals.
Yet another memorable chorus - at least 6/7 on this album alone!
