Swiss Army Romance [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
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...

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.

    A Must Own For Any Dashboard Confessional Fan

    This album is a perfect example of why Chris Carrabba is an absolute genius. Carrabba has the ability to allow the listener to feel as if the song was written just for him/her as a soundtrack to their life's story. This CD was worth buying the first time and I plan on purchasing another just to have the bonus tracks.

    Awesomeeeeeeeee

    This is one of the best CDs that i own...songs like "the sharp hint of new tears" and "living in your letters" bring out the CDs best. If you want to buy a CD that you can listen to over and over and over and never get sick of, this is the CD for you! There are awesome lyrics to some of these songs and they take my breath away.
