Album Review

Where We Stand reappears in 2004 via Takeover as a reissue of Yellowcard's 1999 sophomore effort, in the wake of the Florida combo's major-label debut, Ocean Avenue. The sound here is a respectable sketch of what would come; while vocalist Ryan Key had yet to join up, original frontman Ben Dobson doesn't really sound that much different, and his harmonies with Todd Clary are pretty impressive. There's a heavy Offspring influence here, along with some Green Day and 311; the latter group's influence can be heard most on tracks like "Lesson Learned" and "Time Will Tell," where Sean Wellman's violin adds a dynamic instrumental layer to the usual pop-punk power chords and rapid rhythmic pace. "Kids" is another highlight, with its cross of hardcore aggression and cool heavy metal changes, while "Sorry Try Again" keeps thrash in the picture. Fidelity is a bit of an issue here, especially if fans are comparing it to Ocean Avenue, which was mixed top-shelf style by Tom Lord-Alge. But Where We Stand is still an interesting look at Yellowcard's formative past for listeners made curious by the Capitol release.

Customer Reviews

What can I say? Classic Yellowcard.

Well, it's no Lights and Sounds, or Ocean Aenue, but hey, this is classic Yellowcard. And although their... "vision" was a little impaired, you can't deny that these kids from Jacksonville were extremely talented musicians. Well... musicians... not vocalists.

great album but itunes needs their first album midget tossing

newsflash

just about every band that is making millions now started with a completely different style such as nickelback, green day, or good charlotte. Yellowcard is no exception. In my opinion, this is the most interesting example of it becausde this is almost a hardcore punk album, and not a bad one at that. To all you guys who are slashing this album because its different, keep in mind this was a different band. Both in the sense that they had some different members, and they were iun a different mindset in terks of their influences. All in all, this is some good stuff.
