Mayday Parade

I really like this one. Started off on the first listen and though it was okay - good opening track but the 2nd song was already dodgy (despite great lyrics, which are all over this album). Third one picked up again and then 'Jersey' and 'If You Wanted a Song Written About You, All You Had to Do Was Ask' hit and I was pretty much in heaven.

 

Not every song is great, but there's only one I don't like and there are about 6-7 outright gems. Worth checking out if you like modern rock with a killer rhythm section-heavy sound, awesome lyrics and some massive choruses. Yeah, good disc.

Did any of the usual suspect check this one out? Love the sultry and passionate lyrics and (especially from track 4 onwards) some of the sweetest melodic hard rock choruses I've been blessed with this year. The vocals are not the best, but the drenched-in-passion delivery is getting them across the line for me.

Simply because I hate it when no-one replies to a thread of mine, Im just gonna say that I'll check this one out and give my verdict............soon(ish).

 

& whilst on the subject, you never reported back on Joan Red :whistle:

Haha. Thanks mate. As for Joan Red, I went to the link to download it and couldn't find the link. Is it still there? I'd love to hear that one.

Mayday Parade wasn't bad, but it kinda fell into that 'heard it a hundred times before' and done better rut for me.

For half the album I'd have to agree with you but there is definitely stuff on here which far exceeds the average... imo. :)

Well, after the huge response to this thread, if anyone cares these guys have just released their second full-length CD following the departure of their main vocalist and songwriter. As a result, the best songs on the new CD are nowhere near as good as the best of the debut. BUT, on the positive side they are still very good and to be honest the new CD is more consistent (no fillers this time). They're not doing anything new and I believe I will prefer the debut for the gems on it, but this is great commercial modern rock.

 

New disc is called 'Anywhere but here':

Their new disc is better than the first imo.....however the first comes a close second. :)

Definitely more consistent and in time I might agree... but seriously, how good were some of those songs off the debut!!! :)

If you did like the debut and are interested to hear what happened to the lead vocalist, here's his new band Go Radio:

I was listening to their EP 'Welcome to life' and whilst it's not as good as the new Mayday Parade CD, it actually sounds more like 'A lesson in romantics' than Mayday Parade do now. There's no doubt he was the main contributor to the band. It's good stuff, but not as good as the Mayday Parade debut.

Pretty fine new album called 'Sunnyland' released this year. Back to their old more catchy style after a couple of pretty average albums over the past few years. 

This is one of the better tunes on the disc;
