Release Date: 1995 | Tracklist


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 and Jawbreaker 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.

Shitty review, not only that, Jawbreaker ISN'T the most popular band alongside Black Flag from California. Black Flag was the 80's and never reached the huge mainstream success of Bad Religion.

You really don't say a single thing about the album. At all.

Well that goes without saying but what if the reader doesn't know anything about Jawbreaker?

That is if you're not measuring success based on popularity, which is how most people qualify bands like Bad Religion and Black Flag.

This is really really really bad, and quite short. Try again.

Uhh....what?

An intro, a body, and a conclusion paragraph does not make a review. Sorry, kid.
