One For the Kids - the "they sounded like THIS?!" record
Ocean Avenue - the classic, vintage Yellowcard
Lights & Sounds - the dark horse album
Paper Walls - the mid 2000's pop rock record that didn't...

Easily their worst album ever, but hey, success is success.

I just can't get into their self titled. Brand New Eyes will always go down as one of my favorite records of the 2000's though. The energy was something to behold when the brothers were in the band....

Smart move. If your business model after so many years isn't profitable, change the formula. Having Spotify Premium "exclusive" albums will do just that. I highly doubt Taylor Swift will care, but...

Parachutes is a classic for sure. I just enjoyed the risks they took on Viva and how it actually felt like a cohesive, fully focused album. Mylo they took a ton of risks but there was little...

Well this didn't dethrone Viva from being my favorite album of theirs. This is Mylo 2.0 which is a huge bummer. Mylo was just the worst.

I'll credit this album as having some solid tracks on it and...

You're probably right, however I really dig this single. It's got something going for it that Mylo never had: the lyrics. I can connect with them and the song doesn't over power the message they're...

It depends on who the band or artist is as well. If you're Beyonce / Jay-Z / even Taylor Swift, you can do whatever you damn well please. Drop an album and watch it sell! Adele is doing something...

Perhaps I'm just really into the early works of Coldplay and wanted them to progress to something different, but for me there's a number of things about Mylo Zyloto that just doesn't work at all....

Wow this is turning into a MCS thread. Mylo is just the worst for me. I can't even fathom how they decided that record would be acceptable material to put out. Ghost Stories on the other hand was...

I wonder if those two have met thought to discuss if Dallon would be up for being on the creative end? It doesn't look like Brandon wants anything to do with that. To me, if Dallon wants to be a...

Their last record was cheesy and yet had a "guilty pleasure" kind of vibe. I feel like they just took that formula but forgot how to hone their craft on this one. I don't know, not my thing at all....

Same here. It's their most accessible record yet I love it and don't think they didn't take risks with it.

The whole album is loaded with singles and this one is no exception. It's not uncommon to add someone famous to propel it even further but I agree, FOB doesn't need help with their songs, they've got...

Would love to know the answer to this too. Perhaps Andrew got a better agent or label head to back this record? I always thought they could have had a great spring 2015 run with this record but a...

I still feel like Panic Stations is a very slight call back to their early work. I freaking love Back to the Beat EP and Kids for America.

"Bomb Pops" is a song that should've been on...

EIIKM is a record that was way better than I expected at the time and having revisited it over the years, I will say it's one of their all time best. It's hard to not put that in my 2nd or 3rd place...

Not that you care, but my thoughts in 2012 that haven't changed on Go:

Circuits and Wires - sounds "Feel in Love Without You" and "Worker Bee" mixed together. Nothing special because we've already...

Well to me they're pushing their sound and NO it's not just one song. The best example is the closer but "I Can Feel You" has some guitar parts that sound different than what I've heard from them. It...

"Day Will Run Away" just took the top spot for THE best closer of an MCS album for me. "Hold Me Down" had it for 10 years but hey, number 2 ain't bad.

Overall this record is MUCH better than I...
