tigers jaw belongs to the dead

Tigers Jaw - Tigers Jaw (First Review!!!)

Hey everyone, so for my first review on here, I’ll be reviewing Tigers Jaw’s self-titled album, Tigers Jaw. Tigers Jaw is an indie rock album with some hints of emo. It is the band’s second full length album and was released on September 10, 2008. Some of the tracks are rerecorded versions of songs from the band’s debut Belongs to the Dead.

The first time I heard this album I fell in love. It’s full of catchy emo/pop punk tracks with relatable lyrics. Ben Walsh’s soft yet strong voice combined with Adam McIlwee’s raspier, almost off key, voice is just perfect. They’re like an emo Lennon-McCartney.

Although the song writing isn’t comparable to Lennon and McCartney’s, the lyrics are perfect for any angsty teenager or young adult. The songs are extremely catchy, really relatable, and fun to sing along with.

Maybe it’s just because I’m an angsty teen with a really biased opinion, or maybe (and most likely) the album is just really great, but I give this album a 5/5.
