It only makes sense to talk about Boys Like Girl’s 2006 self-titled album given the fact they recently announce a small tour where they will be playing the album in its entirety. With this being their first album, they had a lot to prove to the fans and they achieved that goal. I instantly fell in love with this band during their beginning stages, all the way to adulthood now. Let’s face it, I squealed a little when they announced the tour.
Some of the more notable tacks on the album, Hero/Heroine, Dance Hall Drug, and Five Minutes to Midnight show the bands able to write about completely different subjects while still being able to make it an upbeat song. This is what many other kids my age, and myself, fell in love with about them. While they had the upbeat songs, they also had some tracks that took a darker more punk turn, a good example being “Broken Man”. It seems they wanted to throw a mix in there so that it wasn’t all one sound
Only time will tell if they are back for a while or just this tour, so don’t miss out if you have a chance to catch it!
