Boys Night Out - Boys Night Out
While many others disagree with me, I think this is a step in the right direction for Boys Night Out. Their self titled album, Boys Night Out, may not be as great as Trainwreck, but that does not mean that the album is completely terrible. It's hard to go from a groundbreaking concept album to a entirely new album, while trying to make it better than the last. They still have the very modern sound that they used to have, but something that makes this album very different then the past ones, is that there is no screaming. But for what the band lacks in screaming, they make up in guitar riffs. The downside about this album is that some of the songs may become a little boring after listening to them for a little too long. Swift And Unforgiving is certainly a catchy song which could pull almost anyone into being a fan of Boys Night Out. The vocal ranges of Mr. Connor Lovat-Fraser are tested in this song, and he shows just how low and high his voice can reach.
Up With Me is the first hit song from this album and is a great one which literally sets a scenario in your head. It's based on the topic of letting your secrets and sins, or skeletons, follow you around. Sooner or later, they learn to cope with their skeletons and make them work out for their benefit. Thats another amazing trait which is perfectly portrayed in this album. You may see most albums out right now which do not have a set theme or a central conflict surrounding them, but most of the tracks on Boys Night Out have a central theme or conflict. Older fans of Boys Night Out may not like this album because of the softer feel that the album has, but if you're new to hearing this band then I suggest you pick up this album.
