Following up 2000’s “From The Screen To Your Stereo”, New Found Glory is back with another batch of covers of move themes. This time it’s a full-length rather than an EP and the fans got to vote on which songs should appear on the album but other than that things have stayed the same… you take a song that’s become known through a movie and give it the New Found Glory poppunk treatment.
With a little help from the band’s friends (Dashboard Confessional, Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday to name a few), these guys churn out versions of songs from a plethora of movies. From “Walk The Line” over “Amélie” to “Donnie Darko” and “Pretty Woman”… it’s all here. And while not all of the songs are great (why cover Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” and not change a thing?), it’s a fun album by a fun band for their undoubtedly fun fans.
Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
