Parade of Lights
The Take Off and Landing of Everything
This is a fitting tactic from New Found Glory. The first cover album they did “From the Screen to Your Stereo” broke their career in a big way. “Hit or Miss” got everyone to notice the band, but people discovering “From the Screen to Your Stereo” after listening through “Hit or Miss” and the rest of that self-titled album really got into New Found Glory. The bottom line is, “From the Screen to Your Stereo” was a big part of New Found Glory’s success and the plan is for “From the Screen to Your Stereo Part II” to be a big part of even more success for the band. There are two sides to this album, they’ve already done an album like this so they miss out on a bunch of key movie songs to do covers with, but on the other side of that because they’ve done one of these albums before and have been a big part of music for awhile now they’ve gained some notoriety. Because of that notoriety they’ve got all kinds of guest vocalists on this album. A few to mention, Will Pugh of Cartel, Pat Stump of Fall Out Boy, Chris Carraba of Dashboard Confessional and Lisa Loeb helping out with a song she wrote- “Stay (I Missed You).” The guest vocals don’t make the album, but they help out on their respective songs. While the songs aren’t better than the first STYS album, the guest vocals add to the mojo of this album and the fact that NFG has been recording and performing together for so long make the overall feel of this album better than the first. New Found Glory is looking for a label, but they still can do make some great music.
