EDITORS’ NOTES

On their sixth album, Floridian pop-punk mainstays Mayday Parade strike a deft balance between heartbreak and humor. The upbeat “Never Sure” and singalong chant “Piece of Your Heart” offer the former, while emo anthems “It’s Hard to Be Religious When Certain People Are Never Incinerated by Bolts of Lightning” and “Looks Red, Tastes Blue” cover the latter—or at least their titles do. Meanwhile, the ballad “Stay the Same” and emotional acoustic title track underscore a wistful feeling that runs throughout the album.
