Is Cardiology the best CD of the year? No. Does it suck? No. Well what is it like? I’ll tell you. Good Charlotte delivered a full album. This 5th studio effort in no way beats their previous album. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad album. It’s just not bursting with amazing songs from beginning to end. Actually I was completely shocked by the value of Cardiology. Good Charlotte told fans they made an entire album but scrapped it for this one, saying “The other album was one any band could make.” Yeah well this one is an album any band could make, to be honest. I am totally indifferent about this one.
Go out and get it though, support one of the last GOOD punk rock bands!
