New Yellowcard Album

Monday, January 23rd, 2006 at 8:10 pm

I just got the new Yellowcard album, Lights and Sounds, and have done a preliminary listen. I’m not sure where it falls yet. It’s different from their previous albums and has a lot less obvious violin, which is what really set them apart from all the other pop-punk bands. No songs caught me right off as genius, which doesn’t really surprise me as that’s pretty rare, but I think I will end up liking a lot of them.

    I realize this is somewhat “out of the blue,” but I was roving the internet trying to find whether Mike Wiley was a Dr. or not and I found your etboo website.

    Last post was almost five years ago, so when I was looking around it felt like I was exploring a ghost town, or some place that had been evacuated because of a natural disaster. It’s weird that even on the internet something can feel “dead” like that. you can almost hear the wind whistling down the streets, it’s eerie.

    Anyway for being that old the site looks great, good job on that one. The rest of the story, (I don’t know if you’re interested but it will make it less weird) is that I’m at ETBU now, I think things have changed a lot and Mr. Wiley (see my problem?) has been retired for a few years. I got his name from the head of the english department (Whaley) and didn’t know how to address him in the email.

    So that’s the long and short of it. Oh, and a pop-punk band w/ a violin? That’s uber weird but it sounds interesting. Thanks for the tip.
