2006 is the year the human race failed. We should all be ashamed of ourselves. Why? Because the High School Musical soundtrack was the number one selling album in America that year. At least the UK went with Snow Patrol as number one.
Melillo’s vocals alone are enough of a reason to check out this EP. While you’re listening, you’ll quickly realize this guy has a way about writing lyrics, verses and choruses alike, that immediately get stuck in your head. The type you’ll be singing along to seven years later.
This is the album that introduced me to the band, and this is the album, despite their other quality releases, that pushed me to donate to the band’s Kickstarter campaign. Some of the album *hint: near the middle* can slow things down at times, but tracks one through four hook you in, and the closing “I Believe In You” makes it all worth it.
So much of my life has seen this album as a backdrop. It’s a textbook example of pop-punk perfection from start to finish. It also stands far above the band’s other releases when stacked side-by-side. This is another record that’ll have you singing along with every word.
