CD Review: Yellowcard

Southern Air (Hopeless)



The band that made the violin cool for pop-punk kids throughout the universe has been on a roll since returning from a four-year hiatus last year. Their eighth album features a stinging blend of chugging guitar riffs and fist-raising choruses made for bedroom moshing. Southern Air doesn't reinvent, or even tweak, the formula. But songs like "Awakening" and "Always Summer" blast out of the speakers like it's 2003 all over again. Big, glossy, and just a bit familiar.
