Capital Lights This Is An Outrage!
Capital Lights does a pretty decent job at compiling a album that will sell. Though they are more classified under the pop/punk genre this may be one album you'll listen to again. On top of that they are a Christian genre. And though that may make some people shy away from them, you can't really tell its a Christian band to begin with. The cd starts with the song "Outrage." It doesn't disappoint in the least bit. From the moment it starts you find yourself into it. With a softer track like "Mile Away" you may just want to click back to listen to it again. They have a flawless mixture and add a piano to top it off. When you hear it, it just seems the vocalist belongs right away. He does a good job not to stray away from his range like some new pop/punk vocalists like to do. Then towards the end you hear a track titled "The Night of Your Life Is When You'll Die" you realize just how good the lyrics are. They aren't pointless words written down. And they seem to be sung with meaning, unlike Simple Plan. Over all, if your into the pop/punk genre this is a band you should defiantly give a listen to, It's that whole blend of everything that just makes it good. Maybe not great, but good.

You, Me, And Everyone We Know Party For The Grown and Sexy
What can be said about this group? I fear that there are more bads then there are goods. From the very start of the album it starts out with a beat that kinda makes you want to tap to it, but then they add a count to it and it just takes away from the track. The vocalists voice then starts and it sounds good but then they switch vocalists and you can tell this guy just doesn't belong singing. From the very moment he opens his mouth he sounds like he's forcing every word out of his mouth. Though the chorus redeems them a bit, it just isn't enough. In general they do a good job at making you want to move along in some way or another, but every track just seems to remind you of the last. The duel vocals is nice, but the secondary vocalist needs work. The end track seems to fit them better. With a slower, more acoustic pace, it makes you think that they should have gone into the acoustic genre. Sadly that gets ruined around the 2:00 minute mark where they add the secondary vocalist and pick up pace. Over all, I would say this is one album I would not run out and buy. Maybe get it off of itunes at .99, but would not pay any more than that.
Zolof the Rock and Roll Destroyer Schematics
Though I personally haven't listened to any previous album up to this one, I can say this is one girl band I don't mind listening to. Its like Avril Lavigne's skater boy, except well, you can re-listen to the album for quite some time. For a female vocalist band, they defiantly prove their belonging in the pop/punk scene. The album opens up with the track "The Way It Goes" and from the start its got the kick in the mouth spunk. Especially when they drop the f-bomb. But don't worry, its a good type of spunk/punk. She keeps her voice well inside her range, and the whole band keeps up a good backing. "I'm A Rock And Roll Mess" combines her talented voice with your standard instruments but with synth. This isn't the only track, a few of them have hints of it here and there. Though its not a bad thing, it does take away from the rest of the music. Though they may be good at writing, one thing this band needs to fix is the understanding of their lyrics. Almost all of the songs on this album have areas where you may hear what they are saying but no idea what it means. Also dropping words like idiosyncrasies in songs can throw you for a loop. The only track you can really classify as "soft" on this album is "This Briskness (Java)." Sadly though its just sounds way to whiny. So over all this can be classified as a decent album. Wouldn't suggest falling in love with it, but do take a listen,
