The front cover is a playful transition to this most surprising diamond in the rough. Sifting through the lyrics, hellogoodbye writes about relationships, which is what impressed me about Snow Patrol's release this year, something we can all understand without using a dictionary for meaning.
The longing for another, the experience of building a relationship, it's interesting because we all go through the ups and downs, but to be poetically positive enough about the joy of meaningful relationships throughout the album, it feels fresh and inspired and captures the feeling we all want to hold onto. hellogoodbye captures the fragrance of happiness. Tracks like "All of your love" urges your heart to dance to the beat, and "Here (in your arms) is an absolute gem from the album, the vocal effects, sweet melody, and driving beat is really the attraction to any of their songs. Aside from a familiar energy to each track, each song is completely unique in delivery, the subtle variety is endearing, such as when you compare "Oh, it is love" to "Stuck to you". Completely unique, positive, and fun beats that is a welcome refresher to any music collection, a contender for the best album of the year.
