Product Description


Of all the downtrodden intellectuals turning skate-punk into emo, Dashboard Confessional's Christopher Carrabbas is by far the most bruised. With just an acoustic guitar and some choice words, the Ben Folds sound-alike turns the concept of the love song on its head with The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most's torrent of poetic abuse aimed at girls who've taken advantage of his good nature. From "Saints and Sailors" ("This apartment is starving for an argument/ Anything at all to break the silence") to "The Good Fight" ("I claimed you as my only hope and watched the floor as you retreated") to "Screaming Infidelities" ("So kiss me hard because this will be the last time I let you"), Carrabbas is unapologetically bitter. Yet while his love life may be a tragic mess, the pure cathartic joy he derives from putting the ladies in question back in their place--evident from his venomous acoustic attacks--is unmistakable, infectious, and fantastically liberating. Wallowing in self-pity has seldom been so much fun. --Dan Gennoe

1.0 out of 5 stars hmm Jan. 8 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
typical music for this day and age.
all sounds the same, same style of guitar riffs, same style of vocals (winey, crying, screaming, girly)
if you want something actually unique, check out a band that has a totally different sound! a band that plays what the dumbass youth and media doesn't want to hear and glorify...

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the bad-girlfriend slamming begin July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I can't even begin to describe how liberating it is to listen to a CD like this. Lead singer Chris Carabba is a lyrical genius whose talents probably derived from a lot of heartbreak. Sometimes, emotionally damaging situations bring out the best in us. Armed with his acoustic guitar, he tells tales of girls who break hearts and the guys who endure the pain. During the emotional choruses of many of his songs, he strokes the guitar with so much anger and pain that you can feel it. The best song on the cd is EASILY The Best Deceptions. Listening to the lyrics is like following a story. The song is about an ex-girlfriend he broke up with, but who he still hears about. When the chorus comes up and he screams "So Kiss me hard, cause this will be the last time that I'll let you", you can't help but feel the emotion.
Other noteworthy tracks are....
The Brilliant Dance
Screaming Infidelities---a very depressing song yet liberating.
This Ruined Puzzle--- The chorus where he sings "Does he ever get the girl", is well written.
The Good Fight.
A must buy for emo fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just to break the silence July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Browbeaten and fantastic, Chris Carrabba faces up the acoustic guitar with a punch. The first time I heard the screams of a heart broken man was on the stilled yet painful Screaming infidelities, Dashboard Confessional made an impressive entrance. It's hard to walk away from this CD, from the lonely Brilliant Dance to the treasured Good Fight, the confessions of a first kiss seems ever so lovely with the bitter cut of a wound. Underrated at first Dashboard is screaming their lungs to the top, the sadness that lays in between the words is simply worth the listen, simply worth the play, simply worth the buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars You MUST buy this CD July 7 2004
By Lauren
Format:Audio CD
I didn't really know a lot about Dashboard, but then I heard Screaming Infidelities on the radio and I couldn't get it out of my head. The CD is amazing, I don't think there is one song that I don't like. It is the perfect CD to put on when you are in a bad mood. He uses so much emotion when he sings it feels like you have been through what he has been through. You have to buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Signiture Dashboard. July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is what made Dashboard unique. Acoustic, heart felt music, with emotionally driven lyrics. A 30 minute emotional roller coaster, and i dont think Dashboard could come up with something as good as this. From the amazing 'Brilliant Dance', to the up beat of 'Saint And Sailor', to the magestic 'Places You Have Come To Fear The Most'. This is defiently one of the best records, and its defiently one for anyone whos a sucker for anything acoustic.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best bands EVER July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is amazing, I love every song and can relate to all of them. The lyrics are so deep and true. Its not often that you come across great song writing, especaily now. Although I got this CD from a person that I now love to hate, I still cherish it and will NEVER stop loving it. DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL ROCKS!

1.0 out of 5 stars How much music can you write about one breakup? June 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
Enough to fill an entire CD full of crap, as Dashboard Confessional shows. Chris' incessant whining and blubbering about breakups is enough to make even the seasoned veteran of music cringe in sheer horror... Instrumentation in most cases is nice. I will give this CD that. If they had released the CD without Chris whining, it would have been an okay album. Not Emo, Not Rock, Not Good. Plain and simple, you're better off just asking some Girl/Guy one the street to explain the worst breakup they ever had and try to sing it like a 5th grade remedial english class. That should give you some idea of how much Chris really sucks. If you insist on listening to his voice, pick up some Further Seems Forever and experience some music that's actually worth listening to, for all it's worth...
