Very well done Mr. Thomas! Kinda bummed that Pete wasn't the one who played piano on oysm but whoa they got CJ Vanston to play piano!? He's great I really enjoy the work he is doing with Steve Lukather these days. It wouldve been nice if they recorded Only One on piano also.

Really great review

The singles from this album were some of my favorite songs when I was little and I remember buying Lights and Sounds and constantly having it in my CD player. But it's really awesome that now like you said music means way more to me and I can relate on a personal level to almost all these songs

This hits the nail on the head.

I really enjoyed reading this. I knew about this release but had no idea when it was coming out. After reading this, I can't wait to check it out.

Edit: and just for shits because its fun discussion, my defining record that got me into music was Define The Great Line and some aspects of this review are what I always talk about when I explain why I have the Underoath logo inked on my body.

It depends. Ultimately, I would say no from a general pop rock view. However, Yellowcard had great timing with Ocean Avenue in that the pop punk scene (Drive Thru and all of that) was blossoming at the time.

This is my favorite piece of writing from Sir Nassiff so far.

Great album, and an acoustic version is just a bonus in my opinion. The original is a gift enough, so an acoustic is just boner material.

Pop-punk certainly was. That was the ultimate time for songs like "Ocean Avenue" to be on the radio.

Great read Thomas. The opening reminded me of why I still love Green Day. International Superhits was the first CD I became obsessed with, along with Take Off Your Pants and Jacket and, to a lesser extent at the time, Does This Look Infected?. When American Idiot came out it was the first time I wanted to buy a new CD. And it blew me away. I think most users will be able to appreciate that sentiment.

Yep, I never really got into Yellowcard, but I can relate to the overall sentiment of this piece. And 2003 was an important year for me musically as well. I started listening to some punk earlier (thanks to my older sister) but I didn't really truly become obsessed until I was 12/13.
