Format: Audio CD
When I first heard that GC had a new album coming out I didn't have high hopes for it. I assumed this from a few song titles I heard where going to appear on the album. But than Predictable came out and caught my ear. Eventually after seeing the video 4 or 5 times I became sick of the song I always do when it comes to mainstream commercial hits with favorite bands.
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.

When I went out to buy this album, I only knew two of its songs: I Just Wanna Live and Predictable. I found out that here was much more to this album than I thought. Good Charlotte really nailed it with this one. Here's my review of each track:
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.
Sincerely,
b

I have to say that even though I was a fan of Good Charlotte before... I wasn't as devoted and crazy as their hard core fans. After buying "The Chronicles Of Life And Death", I can now say that I am a hard core fan. I had their other two albums and thought they were really good... but this one takes the cake for sure. I think they have shown true growth lyrically and musically. It is a little different than some of their older material, but different in a good way. I think that every song on this album is easy for anybody out there to relate to. They are dealing a little more with world issues on this album as well, like the song "In This World (Murder)", which is one of my favourites. I think its kind of cool as their fans to hear what they think of all they mayhem that is happening in the world lately. My other favourites on the album are "S.O.S." as well as "Walk Away(Maybe)", "Secrets", "The Truth" and "I Just Wanna Live". I also recommend The Death Version of the album. I like the bonus track ("Meet My Maker") on The Death Version a lot better than the bonus track ("Falling Away") on The Life Version, but thats just my personal opinion. Bottom line... I bought the album the day after it was released and it hasn't left my C.D. player yet. If you like Good Charlotte, go out and get it, it's well worth the money.

this cd rocks! its just as good or even better than "the young and the hopeless". i dont personally like "once upon a time: the battle of life and death". "the chronicals of life and death" (the song) is good (in a punky pop kind of way). i also like "walk away (maybe)". the geetar is wicked! "SOS" is a good song, but i like the more up-beat songs. i like "i just wanna live". you can tell the twins like the beastie boys in the song. i love the beginning in "ghost of you". "predictable" is an ok song. "secrets" is a great song! i like "the truth" but its not one of my faves. one of my favourite songs is "the world is black". it sounds alot like the cure! "mountain" has an b-e-a-utiful beginning. its a great song. "we believe" is a sad song but its ok. i like "it wasnt enough" because it changes alot (from slow to fast to medium). "in this world (murder)" is good. not one of my faves. "meet my maker" has a good beginning. i like it!
all in all, i like this cd and highly recommend buying it!
