Album Review

Released two years after the departure of founding member Jason Lancaster, Anywhere But Here is Mayday Parade's first album for a major label. Lancaster wrote the bulk of the band's debut — the very album that helped secure Mayday Parade's contract with Atlantic — but his former bandmates prove to be capable songwriters in their own right, as Anywhere But Here wields a radio-ready mix of emo anthems and sensitive ballads. David Bendeth, a hyper-prolific producer who rarely works with bands outside of the emo/punk realm, lends his signature polish to the effort, resulting in an album that's both familiar and marketable.

Customer Reviews

Stop complaining!

I'm really sick and tired of reading reviews about how much people hate the new sound of mayday parade, and how they are going pop. What people have to realize is that new albums are not going to be exactly the same as previous ones! If they were, people would get bored. I know that Jason has left the band, but he wasn't the only reason people liked the band. I don't know about everyone else, but I have listened to Jason's new band, Go Radio, and I wouldn't buy a single one of their songs. I still love Mayday Parade, and I think that overall their sound is the same.


I am a fan. I love Mayday Parade, and saw them live over the summer. It's dissappointing many people are giving poor reviews because the new album is missing duel vocals. People should understand Jason is no longer in the band therefore there is no more duel vocals. Also, Jason contributed a lot to the writing process, and although he is gone, the band pulled through, and wrote and produced a beautiful album. This is an amazing album and I recommend it to anyone.


...does anybody else think this is a little weak for the incredible mayday parade?.....
