Albums you may have missed, day 5

By on January 6, 2013

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.

Dave MelilloDave Melillo: Talk Is Cheap

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.

The FoldThe Fold: This Too Shall Pass

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. 

Hit The LightsHit The Lights: This Is a Stickup…Don’t Make It a Murder 

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.

Until next time,

Alisha Kirby – HHM
