I think it is a good review, but I also think the album itself is a bit better, than rated. Maybe mid to high 70's.
In my opinion it is a "Have a good time"-record, which won't get 85 or better, but it makes fun listening to it and the release date is a well chosen one. It will be rotating a lot more in the summer.

Didn't like it at all. Streamed it on Victorys site and just fucking hated it. Was really sad about it to. I wanted to buy it but couldn't force myself to waste the money in hopes it'd grow on me

i really like "Los Angeles" and "The Running Man" and decently like a few others. But I think this is a step up from Champion, that record blew.

Nice writing in here, too

I really liked Champion. While it didnt hook you instantly like CLC it over time really grew on me

all of their albums are great, and this is right up there.
i agree with the review for the most part, though i really don't find any "bad" song in it. and "The Way You Move" and "It's Gonna Be Hard (When I'm Gone)" are just classics for The Audition.
i don't know why, but i just feel proud of them when i listen to this album.

This album isn't bad, but it's definitely their worst yet. Maybe it'll grow on me...
This is a great review, by the way.

I'd say they've gotten slightly worse with each album. By no means, do I think any of their albums are terrible though. Out of the pop-punk out there today, The Audition are one of my favorites, but I feel like they have made little progress from album to album. I like Self-Titled Album, but it feels like Champion part 2.

That might read negatively, but check out "Los Angeles" -- that's the type of song that would have been ripe for the picking on Lights and Sounds. There are some darker tones present here that remind me of that album -- and both strive for an alt. rock-pop sound.
What no way! Lights and Sounds is one of my favorite albums ever, if anything L&S >>>> The Audition for me. I totally dig "Los Angeles", not sure I hear the darker tones though.

is that really the album art? yuck
It was done by a guy from Glamour Kills. So...yeah you'd think it'd be a little more inventive? or at least colorful?

I dunno, it reminds me of it in places -- pretty much an amalgam of that album and the others I put in the RIYL.

Great cd, different than Champion but not a complete 180 on their sound. Solid cd.
