    As with their last album, the prominence of the violin continues to diminish, but what the strings lack in ubiquity they make up for in impact, making an impression when they appear rather than just fading into the background. This kind of refinement of their sound paints a picture of an older and wiser Yellowcard whose members are confident enough in their abilities that they can step away from the gimmick that initially set them apart from the pack and let their songwriting do the talking.

    On this record, Yellowcard cover all the same territory as those latter bands, with vague stories of broken friendships, frustrated romances and perfect summers that they'll never get back. Because… you know… growing up, like… sucks. The lack of detail is the problem here.

    Yellowcard is back. Period. The new album "When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes" is a solid one. My top 3 songs are "For You And Your Denial"Yellowcard is back. Period. The new album "When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes" is a solid one. My top 3 songs are "For You And Your Denial" "Hang You Up" and "With You Around" are the highlights of the album. The album opens with "The Sound of You and Me" which in a way, reminds me of how Ocean Ave opened with "Way Away." Key's vocals are the same as fans will remember them. The lyrics could be stronger in certain songs, but the fact that this is the first new material in 3 years, fans will still love every minute. Welcome back Yellowcard Full Review »

    Yeah, the old Yellowcard is back. The band have returned to their original sound we last heard in their major record debut album Ocean Avenue.Yeah, the old Yellowcard is back. The band have returned to their original sound we last heard in their major record debut album Ocean Avenue. My favorite song in this album is "Be The Young". Listening to that song while driving on a road by the beach with the sunsetting is the best time and place to listen to that song. Well done guys Full Review »

    We can see how much the guys from Yellowcard got better since "Paper Walls", but they didn't get into the best they could do. After all,We can see how much the guys from Yellowcard got better since "Paper Walls", but they didn't get into the best they could do. After all, pearls like "Dear Bobbie" (tracking in their sophomore CD) don't get expanded in this one. Actually, being "Dear Bobbie" their greatest music, they could not get through the medium ones this time. They might got on the track to a perfect album, but they are just trying it too hard right now. Something to watch on. Full Review »
