iTunes Review

Sometimes emo’s impassioned yelps do more to distract than connect. Maybe that’s why Mayday Parade back off them a bit on Black Lines. Breakup song “Letting Go” is a softly hewn acoustic rock ballad—pretty much the most emo thing a pop-punk combo could dream of doing.

Sure, there are still fiery rockers here, but given some new understated context, the band's frailty seems even more genuine.
