First Impressions: Boys Like Girls - "Crazy World"
First Impressions: Boys Like Girls - "Crazy World"
07/16/12 at 01:15 PM by Jason Tate
After about three listens ... I finally can put some thoughts down on the new Boys Like Girls album. It's poppy. Very. Very. Poppy. But, where I made the turn on the album is when someone mentioned something about it kind of reminding them of Butch Walker in some thread. So, after initially not really liking what I was hearing -- I went back to it with a different mindset. While it's not really my kind of thing right now, for what it is - a slower hook filled pop album - it is pretty good at that. Martin sounds great, the hooks are there, the lyrics are eeeeeeehhhhh-at-best but you can't help singing along to most of it. I guess there is a little Butch Walker-esque pop sensibility here, and coming at it with that angle ... made me appreciate the album more than my first time...[read more]

The first time I ever heard of these guys was when I saw them open for Butch back in 2006, so he always comes to mind whenever they put out something new. Wish they would actually work with him on a record, because I think he could take the sound they have to a new level (this kind of thing is right up his alley), but I'm at least kind of looking forward to this album regardless. When does it come out again?

It's crazy how "pop-rock" in the mainstream has changed over the years. 5 years back, a band wouldn't get much anywhere putting out slower poppy material, but nowadays the quick paced styles like FOB, etc are nowhere to be found. Anyways, I think this album should help them stay where they have been success-wise.

Poppier than "Love Drunk?" I heard a couple new songs live at Bamboozle and they didn't seem as poppy as LD.

Sounds like it might be decent so will definitely check it when its out. I thought First Time was a good catchy song on the EP they released as well just the lyrics are a little on the cheesy side but I guess the bands always been like that. Only thing that throws me off is that most of the album will be slower songs? I'm hoping for some more fast paced songs in vein of some of the martial off of the first album.

Il Capo dello Stato ribadisce ancora una volta che la scelta della moneta unica è irreversibile: "Dall'euro non si torna indietro, gucci outlet uindi non resta che andare avanti con i provvedimenti necessari, gucci borse ompresi gli ulteriori trasferimenti di sovranità per consolidare l'unione economica e monetaria", outlet gucci borse a spiegato rivolgendosi anche a quelle forze politiche e a personalità come l'ex premier Silvio Berlusconi che hanno recentemente criticato questa scelta: "Abbiamo messo a tacere le voci che irresponsabilmente profetizzavano la fatale implosione dell'euro". E ancora Napolitano ha ammonito: "non si può discettare a cuor leggero sulle disastrose ricadute a catena di una disintegrazione dell'euro, sull'intero sistema economico e mondiale. Perchè, non facciamoci illusioni: non ci sarebbero nè vinti nè vincitori, solo economie prostrate, tensioni commerciali acute, fenomeni di impoverimento e fortissimi disagi sociali, una recessione mondiale il cui spettro non può non suscitare timori a Londra, New York e Shanghai".
