For those of you familiar to Jawbreaker
, this band needs is excellent. Contrary to popular belief, they happen to be one of the most successful punk bands of California alongside with like Bad Religion
, Black Flag
, you name it. If you don't know or recognize Jawbreaker
, you'd be missing out, it was singer Blake Schwarzenbach
's band before he joined Jets to Brazil
Anyway, for the album, I'd say it sounds excellent. It's been about over 10 years since Dear You
hasn't recorded any new studio albums since, because they broke up sometime back in 1996. The album itself is remarkable as presenting a relatively young band with a quite defined sound and very deft interplay between the players. Around 2004, after school, my friend took me to his house and I looked at a couple of his CDs and records to listen to and he had Dear You
. I was about six years old when this album came out in 1995, but didn't know who they were until my friend had it. Sometime after I started listening to it, I borrowed the album and made a copy of it on a blank disc. "Fireman" is one of my favorite songs on the album.
I recommend this CD, as it is good. Like any album by a punk band, this album does take a few listens to get into, however, once you get the pace of the album, you'd just consider it very good, and highly enjoyable. I think Jawbreaker
should get back together some time, but too bad it's unlikely going to happen anytime in any future.
