The Boys are Back!

I was so disapointed when the broke up, just after I had gotten into their music. With "The Dangerous Summer," the band has shown that they not only still have it: they've grown even better. It felt wrong to end off with Golden Record—an album that, by no means, is bad, but lacked that full-oomph that RFTS and War Paint had. Color kicks it off with an immensly satisfying explosion of emotion, followed by the ever-catchy This Is Life. Fire boasts one of their most addictive choruses yet, while Ghosts contains a pulsating guitar that can't be matched. Luna is a heartwearming track dedicated to AJ's daughter of the same name, where the frontman professes his love and hope for his growing girl. Songs like Wild Again and Valium show of AJ's raw, emotional wocal range, followed up by the carefree, pumping anthem When I Get Home. Closing off the record comes Live Forever and Infinite, both showing the boys coming to terms with growing older and finding comfort in friendship and family.

All in all, a fantastic return to the rock scene, without falling into the worn-out clichés that often plague the genre. Glad to see them back, can't wait for what's next!

Welcome back

This album blew me away. I kept waiting for the “ok I can skip this track” and never found it. Vocals have matured in such a strong way I can’t use enough superlatives. Great album, front to back.

Fully solid album

Every song is great on this album. Not just 3-4 songs. Every song is powerful. Musically. Great vocals, passion. Drums amazing. Worth listening to this great band.
