Anywhere But Here

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Released two years after the departure of founding member Jason Lancaster, Anywhere But Here is Mayday Parade's first album for a major label. Lancaster wrote the bulk of the band's debut -- the very album that helped secure Mayday Parade's contract with Atlantic -- but his former bandmates prove to be capable songwriters in their own right, as Anywhere But Here wields a radio-ready mix of emo anthems and sensitive ballads. David Bendeth, a hyper-prolific producer who rarely works with bands outside of the emo/punk realm, lends his signature polish to the effort, resulting in an album that's both familiar and marketable.

    "I'm Hopeless, but Hoping".....This album is my go-to

    "I'm Hopeless, but Hoping".....This album is my go-to whenever I'm not feeling quite myself. Mayday Parade has a way of tugging at your heartstrings to you let out all of the emotions you keep bottled up. Everything about this album is pure perfection. I would definitely suggest it to anyone.

    Different..

    The CD is definitely different from their last. Which, is to be expected with their lack of Jason (pooey.) Their old CD had a raw feel to it, but now it's a bit more pop than before. Though it's not a bad CD, it's very different from the last.

    What a shame.

    Alright, so I bought this album thinking, "Ooh, another Mayday Parade album." You have to agree with me that their first album was amazing. Even for pop/punk.

    I was listening through this CD and I realized; something was different. Really different. Their voices sounded more synthensized, too smooth. And the lyrics had lost their classic flare.

    Determined to find out what'd gone wrong, I googled it. Turns out, Jason Lancaster had left the band a while ago. Without his witty lyrics and amazing voice, Mayday Parade just wasn't the same. Which explained everything.

    Basically, this album is a bummer. They've lost their flare. Now, they are nothing but another generic pop/punk/powerpop band. There are few songs on their new album that impress me.

    If you like powerpop, you'll like this. If you're like me and miss the old Mayday Parade, I suggest buying A Lesson in Romantics if you don't already have it. If you do, Jason Lancaster started another band called Go Radio. I'm likin' it. Check it out.

    Just Saying.

    Amazing band

    Great music! They have songs that are relateable and fun to sing to. If you enjoy rock-alternative and all of that, then go ahead and buy this CD :) They won't disappoint!
    They are amazing live also! :)
