4. Calm (2020)

” This album shows the growth all the guys have done in their lives. As they grow, so, do we, and the experience gets better because you understand what they might have experienced. Sometimes it might not be the song as a whole that makes it something you will like but listening and paying attention to the lyrics then just ignore the lyrics and listen to the instrument emits so much emotion.”

3. Youngblood (2018)

“Their music is hands down amazing and it’s great to see rock music making a comeback. ALL the tracks on this album are contagious and just damn good. I’m looking forward to what they have in store for us in the future.”

2. Sounds Good Feels Good (2015)

“This album is absolutely amazing. Possibly my favorite this year so far, and I listen to a lot of different bands. To other guys who are thinking about getting into this band, do it, you won’t regret it, the teasing you may get is a minor price to pay. This band is well worth it. My top five favorite tracks would have to be Permanent Vacation, Vapor, Hey Everybody!, Airplanes, and San Francisco. All of the songs are great though, I love every single one.”

1. 5 Seconds Of Summer (2014)

“On this album most tracks are original songs by the band. The solo and rhythm lines are typical pop – and you might ‘recognize’ bits and pieces similar to other songs. But it’s all original and the lyrics are great – honest, often emotional stories of teen angst. Falling In Love, Falling In Lust, Meeting up, Hooking up, Cheating, Lying, Backstabbing, Breaking up – pretty much covers it like an umbrella – but the lyrics – the story telling are right in line with the classic troubadour tradition over 1,000 years old – but in a very modern pop rock musical style.”
