THIS IS ABOUT THE UNPLUGGED CD!!!!!!
All Time Low is an American Pop Punk group, formed in 2003 in Baltimore, Maryland. The band consists of vocalist and rhythm guitarist Alexander Gaskarth, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Jack Barakat, bassist Zachary Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson. They formed their name from a song lyrics from the band New Found Glory, (Head On Collision). All Time Low was formed in high school and started to cover Pop Punk bands like Greenday.
I love their acoustic CD. All Time Low is like the perfect band for me. I love Pop Punk and Acousitc music. They have great voices, powerful lyrics and amazing music. So if you have my music taste, you will LOVE All Time Low!
On their Unplugged cd, they have the audiene in the background, this can be a good thing because it makes you want to sing along and it makes everything happy, but it can also be a bad thing because you might want to listen to just the band and their music, so you can look at it either way.
Also, for every song the band plays, it gets introduced and thats quite nice. And for one song, they have a guest singer, I think her name is Kate. She has a very good voice and she sings some of the song called Remembering Sunday.
Another bonus feature with this CD is that you get a DVD along with it! That means twice as much All Time Low! On the DVD you can see the band sing their songs with the audience, the out takes, you can select a song to listen too and there is even an interview. It's rated at a 15 because of strong language though so it limits who can buy this CD/DVD but I would recomend buying it if you are over the age of 15.
The songs which are on the CD are:
Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don't)
Coffee Shop Soundtrack
Dear Maria, Count Me In
Each of these songs are all availible in their normal Pop Punk sounds, instead of acoustic, but not on this CD. They are just covers of their own songs.
Damned If I Do Ya (Damned If I Don't); This song is about giving up everything for a girl and that he didn't know that she was over him. The boy really wants to leave her but he just feels that he can't. The song makes you think it's like a little teenage crush thing because the music pitch is quite him and happy.
Coffee Shop Soundtrack; This song is about a boy waiting for a girl to notice him I think. I do not know this song very well but that is what I think. It also sounds like a very happy song and makes you wants to dance and clap along.
Remembering Sunday; A bit of a sad song. It's about a boy losing the love of his life on a "sunday". She left him and he is trying to find her so he can marry him. The only thing is that the girl doesn;t want anything to do with him anymore. So after all the boy has done to find her and how much he loves her, she just told him to go so he says "I guess I'll go home now". I have to say, this has to be one of my favourite songs on the CD. It might take a while to get into it, but once you listen to the lyrics you find out what it's about and then you start liking it more. This is the song with the girl, Kate Voegele, singing. She has a very good voice and makes his song even better. I like songs with boys and girls singing from different view points, and this is just what this song does. Just an amazing song.
Jasey Rae; This is the song that got me into All Time Low. It was one of their first songs I had ever heard from them and I loved it! It was also the acoustic version. It has to be one of their most famous songs. The song is about a girl using a boy to try and make herself better and her life better, but the boys knows what she is doing. The girl is also horrible to the boy and he does not want her to waste her time on him. I love the third verse because the lyrics are just so clever and amazing. I think most people love this song, for obvious reasons.
Weightless; Another famous song with amazing lyrics. The song is about how not everything is how it seems and things will get better even if things aren't going your way right now. At the beginning of the song, they made a mistake about when to come in to singing but they re do it. Also, this song will make you want to sing and dance, it's a very upbeat song.
Dear Maria, Count Me In; A very good, jumpy song. It's a happy why to end the CD. The song is about how amazing this girl, Maria, is and how he will do anything for the girl, like making her a star. He also sings about how good their lives could be together. I love it when CDs end on a high, with a happy song. When you hear this song, don't be afraid to sing and clap along!
The CD case opens into three sections, one section is for the CD, the second is for the information booklet. This booklet is slightly different to others because on each page of the booklet it has the "best" lyrics of each song, well, I think they are the best, you might not. The third section is for the DVD.
Overall, this is a great CD and I would definatly recomend you buying it. It would also make the perfect gift for someone!
Summary: Great CD overall
