iTunes Review

Mayday Parade steps up its game with an eponymous third studio album that surpasses its critically acclaimed debut LP, A Lesson in Romantics. Where the band’s sophomore album featured outside songwriters, this time it insisted on crafting its own tunes and keeping the overall sound organic and live. “Oh Well, Oh Well” opens as lonely piano notes and strings play under Derek Sanders’ heartbroken inflections; then a hi-hat countoff detonates the song into a snarling, rocking emo epic. “No Heroes Allowed” follows, boasting one of the album’s best guitar solos and dynamically doubled vocals. Although guitarist/backing vocalist Jason Lancaster left the band for personal reasons following its first album, vestiges of his guitar and singing style haunt the standout power ballad “When You See My Friends.” The heartfelt “Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven't Ended Yet” closes with old-school emo balladry. Intimate acoustic versions of “When You See My Friends” and “Oh Well, Oh Well” are bonus tracks.

Mayday Parade (Deluxe Edition) Album Review

First off, let me just say I have and will always be a Mayday Parade fan. I love what they've done with the new album, fantastic. No, they will never be the same without Jason. But we have to accept that and look past it. If you love Jason, listen to Go Radio. Now: I'm not going to say every track is perfect, because it's not. But some come pretty close.

Oh Well, Oh Well: 9/10. A great introduction to the album, great contrast between piano, guitar, amazing ending. Fantastic.
No Heroes Allowed: 7/10. Not as impressive as the opening track, but the lyrics are good.
When You See My Friends: 8.5/10. Awesome, song, great outro. Bridge lyrics are deep and meaningful.
You're Dead Wrong: 9/10. An underrated song on the album, another with amazing lyrics. Kind of reminds me of I'd Hate To Be You When People Find Out What This Song Is About from A Lesson In Romantics.
Priceless: 7.5/10. This one sounds like it should have been put on Anywhere but Here. If you liked If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet? from Anywhere But Here, you'll like this. Catchy, and a nice bridge though.
Stay: 10/10. Definitely a must have for the album. Amazing in every sense. Lyrically, musically, well rounded in all categories.
Call Me Hopeless, Not Romantic: 6.5/10. In my opinion, the least impressive song on the album. Nothing too special about it.
A Shot Across The Bow: 9/10. A good pump up song, really good lyrically. Also very catchy, and nice bridge. Very dark.
Everything's An Illusion: 9.5/10. Another gem on the album. Lyrically one of the best, musically one of the best, and an all around good mix of heavy and soft.
I'd Rather Make Mistakes Than Nothing At All: 8/10. Good intro, lyrics are okay, nothing too special, but kind of catchy.
Without The Bitter, The Sweet Isn't As Sweet: 10/10. Perfection. That's all there is to say. The lyrics are the best since Miserable at Best, and the music is entrancing and amazing. If you like songs like Your Guardian Angel, where there is a soft intro and an instrumental buildup, you will love this song.
Happy Endings Are Stories That Haven't Ended Yet: 8/10. A perfect outro to the album, and the lyrics are good. Guitar work is fantastic.
Oh Well, Oh Well (Acoustic): 8/10 Not as good as the original, but the whole step down move was clever. Good for an acoustic cover
When You See My Friends (Acoustic): 8/10 Also not as good as the original, but great harmonization in the chorus.

Overall Review: This is definitely a comeback from their sophomore attempt, Anywhere But Here. Yes, Jason is gone, but without him this is as good as it gets. I won't be surprised if they leave me speechless again. Congratulations Mayday Parade, on an amazing 3rd album.
