CD Review: Boys Like Girls Re-Enters This "Crazy World"

From Massachusetts comes the pop-rock band, Boys Like Girls with their third studio album, “Crazy World.” The band hit it big with their self-titled debut album and the Top 10 follow-up, “Love Drunk.” After a short hiatus, plus the departure of original bassist Bryan Donahue, The “Boys” are back to reclaim some of their former glory.

The new album starts off with the dance/pop beats of “The First Time.” Since their debut over six years ago, the band’s songwriting has grown and matured as noticed in the lyrics of “Be Your Everything” and “Stuck In The Middle.” They still know how to have fun like in “Life Of The Party” and add a bit of country flavor in the title-song “Crazy World” and “Shoot.” The band’s passion still glows in “Leaving California,” but they can’t help but bring the fun out on “Red Cup Hands Up Long Brown Hair.” The album closes with the big production number, “Hey You.”

The album was released on December 11 where it debuted at #134 as it continues to rise up the charts. To stay in touch with what’s going on with Boys Like Girls, be sure to visit their website at
