Interesting and nothing held back
At first listening, some of the songs made me a bit apprehensive, especially after seeing Yellowcard in concert (which seemed to be an hour+ rant about politics), but after spending some quality driving time with Lights & Sounds in the stereo, I came to really appreciate the musicality and talents of the group. They are certainly not afraid to voice their opinions about current events, as seen in songs such as "Two Weeks From Twenty". I would recommend the CD to teens who understand the events and issues the band is commenting on--otherwise, the lyrics don't really make a lot of sense. I've spent quite a while trying to explain the messages behind the lyrics to my 15-year-old sister. Overall, very musically entertaining and gets their message across. Their best yet.
