Screaming Bloody Murder: Review


Everybody's got a secret
Can you tell me what is mine?
Can you tell me what you'd find?
I'll tell you if you keep it
I promise not to lie

Well, I have the fears,
The pain and the tears I just can't hide
It all disappears
'Cause everything passes with the time
All you need
Is reason to believe

These lines truly touched my heart and made me review this album. This is the 5th studio album from Sum 41 named "Screaming Bloody Murder" on its title track. Its a 14 track album. This album is a typical sum 41 album with songs which go in a sky high note and then comes to the ground level and soothes your heart. Actually what I like about Sum 41 is that they have great vocals which does the job for them. 
            I still remember the day when I first heard "pieces" and it was like "The best song in the world". I had the same feeling for "Reason to Believe" which is the opening track of the album. It has great lyrics and the way he sings  it makes it better. Second track is the title track which is also good but not as good as the first one. Still its a song I think everyone of you would like.


            Third track is "Skumfuk". When you start listening to this song you think its going in some direction and after listening it for a min. u'll think its not the same song. Its a song in which you can't say its good or bad its just a song which you like.
         Fourth track is "Time for you to go" which you can totally say that its a party song. A song which can be included in next "American Pie" movie. Its totally a headbangin' track and all the party maniacs will like this song.
        "Jessica Kill" is the fifth track of the album. I really like the way this track starts and it gets better as it goes. It has some influences from previous albums and It reminds me of old times. The time when i first heard Sum 41.
         "What I am to Say" is a slow track w.r.t the other tracks in the album. It shows the softer side of the album which is present all the albums released after " Does it look infected?".
         "Holy Images of Lies" also starts slow and it looks like but don't u forget that you are listening to Sum 41. It has beautiful lyrics. Its just like a fusion of harsh and soft side of a person shown simultaneously. Its surely weird but its weird in a good way.  
         "Sick of Everyone" is the 8th track of the album and it just looks like a continuation of the last track. Its just a song for the rebel  a person who had enough of this world. It also has great lyrics and it will fill you wit energy.
         "Happiness Machine" starts with drums and guitars and slowly it goes to softer part. Its just like the last two tracks but it has something different which I can't describe in words. You just have to listen the song and u'll have the same feeling.
         "Crash" is the 10th song of the album. Its a soft track and its a song you play in prom night. It starts with piano and that what makes it a perfect dance song for the couples. Piano continues in the backgrounds with some guitars without any drums. Its one of the songs which the girls would really like.
          " Blood in my Eyes" again seems like another song like "crash" but I'm again saying that its sum 41 and this is what they do. The give you the " Best of both worlds" (ashamed of using these line here but these line perfectly describe them). In between the third and 4th minute there is some intensive guitars and drums and after that the songs goes to part from where it started.
          "Baby you don't wanna know" is one of the songs which will get most radio plays and u'll see people singing this song here and there. It a song that u'll sing without even knowing it you are singing it. It also lightens the mood after all these heavy shit.
          "Back Where I Belong" is the 13th track of the album. It starts slowly and in few seconds you listen the guitars and drums. In between the song it again takes a break but all in all this song is guitars and drums only.
          "Exit Song" is the last song of the album and its a slow one with guitars in the background. It " Short and sweet".
   
    I'll rate this album 4 stars. Its good piece of work and its what a alternative fan likes. Most of the songs from this album will end up in your playlist. So I think its all for today.
Do listen to this album and enjoy!
