Ocean Avenue

Caroline 39844

Released on July 22, 2003


Southern California punk heroes Yellowcard are a young quintet which has created an enormous national grass-roots fan base from tireless touring and hundreds and hundreds of passionate live shows. Ocean Avenue was produced by Neal Avron and mixed by Lorde-Alge. The 13 song album offers a passionate brand of anthemic and melodic punk, but with a twist - complementing the standard band set up with the furious violin playing of Sean Mackin.

This CD will Grow on you. Not Yellowcards Best by far but, a good CD to listen too. If you are a Teeny Bopper, you would probably like the band Broken Memories Better.

what should i say? how about that this album kicks ass! yellowcard are one of those bands that gets progressively better with each release. these guys have some heartfelt lyrics but are able to keep it upbeat with some of the catchiest songs i've ever heard ... and the violin is always a nice addition! buy this album now and catch them live cuz these guys are already starting to get "big"!

Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue" is a well above average album.. there are only two songs on the CD that I don't like that much - 'Life Of A Salesman' and 'Twenty-Three'. They sound poppier than the rest of the album, especially in the lyrics.. very Good Charlotte-esque rhyming going on, it's like they sacrificed good lyrics just to make the song flow, and it just dropped the quality of the song a little.

But the other eleven songs on the album are great. The album is pretty uh, ya know.. it's bordering on poppy punk more than emo, I'd say get this if you want something that's catchy and easy to listen to, and is of a decent standard. Don't get it if you're wanting to hear musical works of art - the vocalist isn't great, the drummer sucks to the degree where you wonder why his friends didn't ditch him for a one-armed midget, and there's nothing outstanding from the others in the band.. oh, the violin is a nice touch though. But despite having said that, the overall package is good, so as I said before, this is a good album if you want some nice music that's easy to listen to and will fit almost any situation.

this album starts out really really good and you start thinking that this Cd is going to be GREAT, but it kinda melos out towards the end. Not bad though if you like poppier rock, but only 1 really good fast song, so it is alright. Good CD to listen to when your girlfriend dumps you

decent over produced pop punk. best song is "only one" but when you write a ballad-type song with that common chord progression, its bound to be catchy. This band COULD be the next good charlotte, but they need to stay away from mtv(unlike simple plan/reset). But overall good cd. For fans of catchy fast pop punk music (i.e. blink)

Good stuff - poppy punk with hard edged bits in - really like tracks 5, 8 and 11 amongst others. Its good stuff - can't really fault it much - gets bland in the odd place but still worth buying I'd say.
