Yellowcard say farewell with their final album.
Whether they hit or missed across their 10 studio albums, Yellowcard always tried to progress, and their worst nightmare seemed to be making the same album twice.
Never has that been clearer than on their self-titled swansong, which is full of the most expansive, ambitious music they’ll ever make.
Here, they hit once more on the soaring radio-rock stomp of ‘Got Yours’ and ‘Rest In Peace’, and miss one final time when the slow build of ‘The Hurt Is Gone’ fails to develop into anything special.
This album is a perfect representation of what this band has and always will be – brave, real, and resolutely striving for something different.
