Yellowcard-  – When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes

NAME: Yellowcard-
ALBUM: When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes
DATE: 28March2011

LABEL: Hopeless Records


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Yellowcard complete a remarkable renaissance.

LOCATION: Florida, US.

LINE UP: Ryan Key – lead vocals, rhythm guitar; Sean Mackin – violin, vocals; Ryan Mendez – lead guitar; Sean O’Donnell – bass, vocals; Longineu W. Parsons III – drums, percussion


WHAT’S THE STORY?: Back in 2003, Yellowcard were on the cusp of mainstream acceptance. ‘Ocean Avenue’ blew up faster than the time it takes Nintendo’s Kirby to inflate a balloon and the band managed to gloriously dispel suggestions that violins were unwelcome in pop-punk.

Regrettably, ‘Lights and Sounds’ failed to deliver the immediate catchiness that made its predecessor so successful, while ‘Paper Walls’ was later promoted with the apathy that is normally associated with unavoidable dentist appointments.

All of these facts are quickly rendered obsolete within seconds of ‘When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes’, as ‘ The Sound of You And Me’ and its irresistible hooks mean that it should be renamed as ‘The Sound of Yellowcard Finding Their Mojo Again’.

The band’s invigorating return to form continues with ‘For You, And Your Denial’ as well as ‘With You Around’. Both tracks exhibit the band’s strengths consummately, with choruses that are tailor-made for the world’s festivals.

‘Hang You Up’ is an affecting ballad that would not look out of place on a Jimmy Eat World record and ‘Sing For Me’ boasts a comparable sound, acting as an exquisite break between the album’s punchy pop-punk offerings.

After hearing ‘When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes’, It’s safe to say that Yellowcard are back.

SOUNDS LIKE: Amber Pacific, New Found Glory, Jimmy Eat World.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You want a soundtrack for a summer full of beach balls, Calippos and sandcastles.
