Dashboard Confessional ~ Swiss Army Romance
Top Customer Reviews
The song opens up with....
Screaming Infidelities 9/10 Great song. I prefer this version to the Places you have come to fear the most version. "This bottle of beast is taking me home."
The Sharp Hint of New Tears 9/10 The lyrics are amazing. I can totally relate to this song. Driving in a car, your only escape from the real world, where you have time to think and reflect and of course cry. Tonight I think I'll take the long way home.
Living in Your Letters. 8.5/10 A story of a sad long distance relationship.
The Swiss Army Romance. 9/10 I love this song. It's about a college girl who is so fake and superficial that underneath all of that is something much better. I'd like to see you undone.
Turpentine Chaser. 7/10 I still don't understand what this song is about, but the acoustic guitar is amazing in this one.
A Plain Morning. 10/10 Easily my favorite song on this album. This song is so well written and performed. The female who contributes the back-up vocals is amazing. This song is about longing, homesickness, and the desire to come home to the open arms of your loved one. A great song a soldier overseas can dedicate to his wife back home. Very sad indeed.
Age Six Racer. 8/10 An okay song. I love the last section of the song where he sings "I hate the winter in Lexington."
Again I go Unnoticed. 8.5/10 I prefer this version to the Places you have come to fear the most version. This song is about a girl who dismisses all romantic advances. That sucks!!!Read more ›
Screaming Infidelities- Although I heard the second version first, I like this one just as much because it sounds much more raw (raw-er?), which is one thing I love about Dash.
The Sharp Hint of New Tears- I love this one. I have a hunch that maybe after a while I'll get sick of it, but I really hope not because I like it a lot now. It has a good rhythm.
Living in Your Letters- Thus far I've found this to be a fairly forgettable song, but I always stick with it because I absolutely love the last line, "cause turning to you is like falling in love when you're ten." That and the 3/4 time make it worthwhile.
The Swiss Army Romance- This is one of my favorites. I absolutely love the lyrics and can relate to them. It's my "soul-song."
Turpentine Chaser- I didn't care for this one much at first, but throughout the week it's really grown on me. The 3/4 time always does it for me.
A Plain Morning- I look forward to this one everytime. Jolie Lindholm's voice is absolutely stunning; I don't think I'd like it much without her.
Age Six Racer- Another one I look forward to, also because of Jolie. And again with the 3/4. I love it.
Again I Go Unnoticed- Maybe it's because I heard it first, but I really like the second version better. While this one is still amazing, he kind of screams and sounds like a girl. It's almost as if he's making fun of his own voice. Also, I like how he whisper-sings the bridge in the second one instead of sounding the same throughout the entire song.
Ender Will Save Us All- I love how he only strums the guitar once in a while and we can hear just his voice. Very good.
Shirts and Gloves- I kind of listen to this only because I'd feel guilty if I skipped it.Read more ›
"The Sharp Hint Of New Tears" (5/5): I can't help but sing along with this song.
"Living In Your Letters" (4/5): Really emotional lyrics about a person the songwriter cares about.
"The Swiss Army Romance" (5/5): The title track is superb. Extremely catchy.
"Turpentine Chaser" (5/5): The bridge of this song is so good it gives me the chills.
"A Plain Morning" (3/5): This is not a bad song, just not great.
"Age Six Racer" (4/5): Really touching lyrics and soft background vocals make this one great.
"Again I Go Unnoticed" (5/5): An intensly emotional tune.
"Ender Will Save Us All" (5/5): Another song that is always stuck in my head, i love it.
"Shirts And Gloves" (4/5): This soft ballad is a winner.
"Hold On" (3/5): I don't know why, but this one doesn't do anything for me.
"This Is A Forgery" (4/5): Kind of different for Dashboard, but not bad at all.
"Hidden Track" (4/5): I enjoy the raw feel of this song.
Chris Carraba's first release as Dashboard Confessional is a great album. It was re-released three years after it came out, now with some bonus tracks. The real gems here are the title track and "Again I Go Unnoticed." There are only like one or possibly two songs that i skip through when listening to this. Great effort overall.
Rating: Four stars.

I'm a huge fan of modern rock, even the emo that has arisen lately. However, I can't bear to listen to DC. I don't really know why. Read morePublished on July 15 2004

Dashboard Confessional will prove in the future to be an extremely influential band in the future i think. Inaccurately thrown into the sketchy "emo" genre. Read morePublished on July 2 2004 by Tim Kirby
