EDITORS’ NOTES

Alter the Ending finds emo sweethearts Dashboard Confessional consolidating their strengths, putting everything they’ve learned about making albums into one concise package. "Until Morning" and "Belle of the Boulevard" show the band’s affinity for pairing nostalgic portraits of lost innocence with gauzy guitar swells, while "Everybody Learns from Disaster" sees frontman Chris Carrabba giving an anthemic, life-affirming pep talk, as if he’s finally embraced his natural role as a camp counselor for the discouraged.
