MONSTER IN THE CLOSET
17 October, 2013
With album opener Ghosts easing in with vocals that meet somewhere between Fun. and Queen, the expectation is Mayday Parade’s fourth record will mix things up a little. Unfortunately, and this isn’t actually a bad thing if you love their sound, the rest of Monsters In The Closet, with its huge choruses and uplifting, hard-hitting vibes, sounds too similar to 2011’s self-titled record.
The problem is Monsters In The Closet doesn’t really present anything new, and with the market for high school-esque pop punk slowly fading, most of these songs will fall on deaf ears.
