Parade of Lights
The Take Off and Landing of Everything
New Found Gloryís self-titled, major label debut is easily one of my top ten albums of all time. Itís probably top five. The bandís sound was new to the scene. It was pop punk like Blink-182 but it sounded like Blink on crack. The music was fast and furious and a lot of fun to listen to. The music was great but this album is what gained NFG itís base of fans. Thereís not a weak track on the entire disc. That was something that was really rare ten years ago. Itís great that Universal gave this a 10th anniversary edition release and maybe even a little surprising. Yes itís a great album but lots of NFG fans didnít come to the party until the next two albums. Iím not going to knock them for recognizing a great album though. This edition has lots of bonus content too; including seven bonus tracks and a DVD with loads of content. New Found Gloryís self-titled album is a classic album. This album made this band into what it is today and helped shape music across the next decade. The band has a place in rock and roll history and this release cements that.
