iTunes Editors’ Notes

Insisting on enough reverb to drown an orchestra, Forrest Kline (a.k.a. Hellogoodbye) creates a modern rock album that owes as much to Foster the People and Arcade Fire as to the classic Kinks or Zombies album previously considered his influences. The performances throughout the third Hellogoodbye album, Everything Is Debatable, are nervous and jittery, with handclaps and ensemble vocals galore to give everything the feeling that more than one man is bringing you the news. Producer Joe Chiccarelli does everything he can to further this glorious illusion. “Die Young, Die Dumb; Not Soon” sounds like a marching band signed on to the party. The title track incorporates electro-disco grooves for even more glitz and glamour, and the intriguing “Just Don’t Let Go Just Don’t” comes across like an ‘80s power ballad where Bryan Adams, Berlin, and The Outfield have gathered together for a nasty romp under Kline’s direction. Even the album’s final goodbye, “A Near Death Experience,” preens and purrs like a full-on orchestrated ‘80s ballad with an epic sense and an open heart.

Customer Reviews

Hello, Hellogoodbye!

"would It Kill You" was a huge step in the right direction for these guys. Their music grew into adulthood with them. I commend their bravery to push forward with a different sound. I'm excited to listen to what they've come up with for this album.

Solid Album

Would It Kill You?, in my opinion, is one of the finest records ever made, so I had very high expectations for this album. After listening to the album through, I have to say that it is really good, but it just doesn't quite live up to the last one. Whereas with Would It Kill You? there is not a single song that I skip over, I will probably end up skipping a few of the songs off of this new album because they just aren't that memorable or special. I like how they are still growing and changing as a band, as evidenced by their increased use of synths. Noteworthy songs: Everything is Debatable, The Magic Hour is Now, Swear You're in Love, Summer of the Lily Pond

Solid

Similar lyrical qualities of their last album and it's just as good.

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Huntington Beach, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A group of quirky, fun-loving emo rockers from California, Hellogoodbye seem to take as much influence from modern pop-punk as they do from the original Nintendo sound bleeps that held children captive in the late '80s. Formed by high-school friends in 2002, the group infused its playful brand of indie power pop with sugary sweetness, catchy dance beats, and enough energy to tire a group of five year olds. Hellogoodbye, named after a quote from Saved by the Bell's Screech Powers, was comprised of...
