iTunes Review

While the intimidating-looking skeleton man on the cover strongly suggests that this Tempe, Ariz., quintet has adopted the classic horror-rock stylings of The Misfits or The Cramps, the opening song here—“Take What You Can Carry”—immediately disarms such assumptions with well-crafted rootsy rock. More Wilco than Witchcraft, “Love & Drugs” dials up the Fender reverb as John O'Callaghan’s slightly weathered rasp sings sophisticated melodies over a backdrop of twangy guitar pop. Although The Maine's wistful take on power pop (as heard in the beautifully melancholic “White Walls”) sounds like something out of Jeff Tweedy's Being There sketchbook, “Birthday in Los Angeles” shows more originality and experimentation. Here O’Callaghan mournfully croons his birthday blues over a warbling pump organ right through a murky mix. It inadvertently recalls the mysterious “I Just Want to See His Face” from The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St.—replete with weepy slide guitar.

Forever The Maine

Forever Halloween is amazing!! Best album yet, its completly different from CSWS, but its a good different. Its cool how much you have grown as a band since then and for me to grow with you guys as well from high school to college. I have enjoyed listening to you guys for the past 6 years. Its crazy to think the first time I saw you guys on tour was soundtrack of your summer tour in 2008. You guys will forever be my favorite band!!! I can only hope the older I get and the older you guys get that the albulms will keep on coming. After this album you guys will have alot to live up to, but I have all the faith in the world for you guys to contiuously deliver amazing music for years. Can't wait to see you guys this summer on July 6!! :)

Forever Halloween.

This album is for anyone who appreciates real, raw, music. This is hands down the best work The Maine has put out yet, and it is the closest songwriter John O'Callaghan has ever let us into his head as well as his heart. The lyrics are painfully relatable and moving, and the musical progression by the other members far exceeds what anyone as an early fan of Can't Stop Won't Stop would have thought possible. Anyone who says "ughhh go back to your old sound" "man I'm so disappointed" "can't stop won't stop forever!" is clearly missing the point of The Maine's artistry. If you're looking for some bubbly, teen-angst filled, everyone's got the same haircuts, pop record-- go back to high school. Cause the rest of us, we grew up.


I'm trying to like it becuase I am a fan. I feel that most 5 stars are from people that would like it no matter what. In my opinion, this album takes the band in a different direction; whether good or bad, I'm not quiute sure. I loves CSWS, and B&W, and Pioneer was decent, but this album is not their best.


Formed: 2007 in Phoenix, AZ

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Despite sharing their name with a northeastern state, the Maine formed in 2007 in Tempe, AZ, a collegiate suburb of Phoenix. Most of the bandmembers -- singer John O'Callaghan, guitarists Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco, bassist Garrett Nickelsen, and drummer Pat Kirch -- were in high school at the time, and the guys wasted little time turning their '90s radio rock band influences into a familiar, infectious pop-punk sound. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and released a five-song concept EP,...
