Editors’ Notes

This emo-pop-punk band's third album is where it turns up the volume and expands its horizons. Taking Back Sunday producer Mike Sapone gives the group an epic scale that takes these guys out of the garage and into the stadiums. Several tracks were previewed on the Invicta EP ("Gravity," "Earthquake," "All the Weight"), and they're a good sampling of what goes on here. The atmosphere is charged for the power chords driving "Gravity," while Nick Thompson's vocals bring out the pop charm of "Get to You." "So Guilty" casts its hook back to the '80s, where the tune would've fit right in with the likes of mainstream pop acts like Mr. Mister and The Outfield. There's an extra electronic flash to the effect-heavy "Float Through Me." As with much emo, the power's in the execution of the formula: the tight harmonies that support the sing-along choruses, the combustive drums, and the distorted guitars that chime into the night air. This bonus track version includes the video for the pure emo-pop single "Earthquake."

Customer Reviews

Amazing.

This cd is everything that Hit the Lights was meant to be. Extremely catchy and fun filled. There is so much depth in this album, they have progressed immensely. Never thought it come get any better, but HTL proved me wrong. SO GLAD THEY DID!!! Buy this cd!

Suprising

The songs aren't what I was expecting them to be since I have been a fan for several years now. They are more acoustic songs, but its still a great album! I wish more of the songs were upbeat and catchy like their older stuff is.

Epic!

I got the preorder bundle and I've had this cd a few days and it hasn't left my cd player yet. The maturity these guys show in this cd is phenomenal. Every song is genuine and extremely well thought out. As long as they keep putting out music I'll stand in line as long as I have to in order to get it. Keep up the amazing work guys!!!
