I was half expecting to hear another song dedicated to there dad or a bunch of references to him throughout the record. It's good that I didn't because they've played that card enough.
I will give an individual track review.
1. Once Upon A Time:The Battle Of Life And Death- Very suprising opening. Impressive. Good Stuff.
2. The Chronicles Of Life and Death- Typical expected bouncey pop/punk melody. But I still like it.
3. Walk Away(Maybe)- The way Joel sings this song reminds me of Rise Against because his tune sounds similar to the lead singers. Good song.
4. S.O.S.- A favorite! This song is looking through a kids' eyes and going through the emotions about to committ suicide. The songs corus reminds me of The Police's song S.O.S. I'm also likeing the guitar solo it shows that the bands instrumental skills have gotten better.
5. I Just Want To Live-I love this song. It has a bouncey hip hop/ska feel to it. Benji and Joel's Beastie Boys influence shows it this song.
6. Ghost Of You- Another favorite. This song gives off a dark and earie feeling when listening to it. It's about the past tense of a break up and still haveing little reminders physically or mentally about the person.
7. Predictable-First single. Like the Violins at the beginning. About girls being predictable when it comes to dateing. Still a good song.
8. Secrets-This song is self explanitory in the lyrics.Read more ›
1. Once Upon A Time: The Battle for Life And Death(Instrumental): Didn't get it. 2/5
2. The Chronicles Of Life And Death: A catchy song but not a great one. 3/5
3. Walk Away(Maybe): Good song. Heavy sound and lumbering guitars. 3/5
4. S.O.S.: One of my faves. Sad and depressive but fast-paced. 4/5
5. I Just Wanna Live: Good song. I guess everyone's heard this one. Different style to it. Gettng old. 4/5
6. Ghost Of You: A little bit too slow and a tiny bit boring. But that's your call. 3/5
7. Predictable: Another oftenly played song. Very good. But yet somewhat getting old. 4/5
8. Secrets: A good song but not their best delivery. 3/5
9. The Truth: An O.K. song. Could have been better if the verse wasn't so repetitive. 3/5
10.The World Is Black: Rythm and sound aren't great but the lyrics are meaningful. 4/5
11.Mountain: Not amazing but has some meaning. 3/5
12. We Beleive: Powerful lyrically except for the verse. Instruments and arrangements not in top shape. 3/5
13. It Wasn't Enough: A little bit repetitive.3/5
14. In This World(Murder): Lyrically, a great song but somewhat weaker on the instruments and arrangements.4/5
15. Meet My Maker: A beatiful song about death. 4/5
Well as you can see, the album is definitely a meaningful one but Good Charlotte were a tad bit weak on the instruments. Though I still highly recommend this album if you're a Good Charlotte fan or are familiar with the new wave punk-ska scene. I hope my review helped you in your decision making.
all in all, i like this cd and highly recommend buying it!

The title for my review speaks for itself. Why people would buy this trash is beyond me. Oh and 'Ghost of You's title is a pure rip-off of My Chemical Romance's 'The Ghost Of You'... Read morePublished on June 28 2005
