Yellowcard - Lights And Sounds

When the thrash metal style riff opened this single, I was ready to give Yellowcard a chance, until that all-too-familiar Yank voice started singing. “Hello you” is the first line, as though friends. He's right; we do seem to see rather too much of each other for my liking. Is there one punk singer that provides for vocals for umpteen US teeny-bopper bands, because I'd really like to meet him. And tell him to shut up. At once Rufio, Alkaline Trio, FallOut Boy et al, Yellowcard no doubt have their legions of 12-16 year old fans throughout the country, and this is for them. Everyone else, don't bother.
