Review

I really enjoyed Good Charlottes album” The Chronicles of Life and Death” produced by Eric Valentine from 2004. It was a step forward musically from their Blink 182 influenced kind of punk/pop that felt more or less like a copy of what had been done many times before. And even it was a commercial failure compared to “The Young and the Hopeless” with more 3 million sold album is it to me their most creative and unique work up to date with some cool ideas and different melodies.
Unfortunately can’t I say the same thing with this new effort called “Good Morning Revival”. To be honest do I have to say that this is their far most uninspiring and boring record with some trendy 80’s influences ala The Killers. And that’s the problem. Can imagine any in the band said; “Hey guys, I just love this band called The Killers with their classy 80’s keyboards, let’s do a Good Charlotte thing of it”. But doesn’t work at all; this just give an ever more confusing picture of what Good Charlotte tries to deliver. They had there moments a few years ago, but this is close to crap. “Good Morning Revival” will be an even bigger failure from the band and I’m not sure that they will be on Epic when 2007 is closing in.

Good Charlotte is the best band of the world!! I love very much their new style and I can see the evolution they made in every album.If you don´t like it, just listen to another band. Maybe the genre is in the 80´s but I don´t care ´cause anyways, it stays Good Charlotte. So, if someone doesn´t like Good Charlotte, don´t make critics on them ´cause it´s not going to change something in your life or in their genre. In conclusion, I am proud of Good Charlotte and if they don´t success for this album, at least they have success for many people and in my heart.

Hey Bertrand; That might have be a reason, but maybe not. It´s always good with different opinions to give the readers different ideas and thoughts about albums that we writes about. So thank you and keep posting comments!

I actually disagree. I have discovered Good Charlotte with this album, it is great, amazing arrangements for all songs. I have listened to the previous albums, they are too similar to other modern rock artists. Maybe the chronological way to discover a band makes a difference... A+ Bertrand

I totally agree with you Wippson, GC had some glorious moments on "chronicles" and "young and the hopeless" but this record does not please me at all. Only a couple of songs caught my interest for more than a minute. Very dissapointing I must say.
