Overview

Dashboard Confessional's Christopher Carrabba became pretty famous thanks to pop kids latching onto his band's second album, The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most. Released in 2001, this album carried Dashboard Confessional from the emo underground to the mainstream charts during an 18-month period; Carrabba made the cover of Spin two years later and late-night music stints on the shows of David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, and Craig Kilborn once again scoped Dashboard Confessional's star power. After a successful worldwide tour, Vagrant decided to reissue Dashboard Confessional's first album, Swiss Army Romance, three years after its initial release. Chances are that major fans would have purchased the album already; however, to capitalize on the band's fame, Vagrant added two new tracks. Once you sift through the jilted love of "Screaming Infidelities" and nurse the nagging pain of lost relationships in "Living in Your Letters" for the millionth time, Dashboard's shiniest pop moments can be found on the bonus cuts "This Is a Forgery" and "Hold On." They don't totally move away from Carrabba's classic melancholic desires, but they offer an experimental pop trip different from Dashboard's indie acoustics. For those who've adored everything that came before, they'll surely make room for two more hidden treasures.

This all acoustic set, done by one man with some help on back-up vocals, is the best cd I have heard in a long time. This cd is an obvious emotional outlet that is easy for listeners to relate to. I recommend this album to fans of any genre of music. If you can appreciate good music you can appreciate this.

Clean, simple music that works when you play it solo or with others. Generally low-key acoustics with great lyrics and strong vocals. I've been looking for this album since I heard ''Living in your Letters.''

This is ultimately one of the best emo records out there, and for some one to do it all by themselves is amazing. I reccomend this to anyone who has any emotional bone in their body.

I don't even have this CD yet, but I've heard some of the songs, and I have to buy it. ''Tupentine Chaser'' and ''Again I Go Unnoticed'' are so amazing, I can't wait to hear the rest. I can't even describe how amazing this music is.

This CD can fit in any situation. It can make you happy or sad. It can make you crazy or calm you down. Best of all, it can wake you up or rock you to sleep.

It's as if Chris opens his mouth and his heart assalts you. He puts into words the elating flutters and gut-wrenching sobs that you've tried to understand since you became aware of the opposite sex. The acoustic guitar is the perfect medium for such profound yet simple thoughts.

Dashboard Confessionals is my favorite band. The lead singer is a great song writer . his songs have so much meaning to them. he is who inspired me to learn how to play the acoustic gatuar. every song is awesome but living in your letters and the sharp hint of new tears are my faves. this band rocks!!!!!!if you like this cd, you'll love his new one ' places you have come to fear the most '. i never get sick of listening to dashboards music. i've already seen them in concert twice , and i can't wait to see them agian!!!!!!!!!
