Dashboard Confessional - The Shade of Poison Trees

Chris Carrabba and friends go old school, bringing back the acoustic guitars, but retain the drums, bass, and larger band sound. Still, it kicks the shit out of the stuff that's been flowing since what I consider the brilliance of The Swiss Army Romance, although some of the riffs are eerily reminiscent of that album. It's catchy, awesome, and somewhat more "mature." I don't know what that really means, but lots of reviewers use the term, so I'm using it too. Rating: 8/10
