"There's no such thing as a miracle"

For their new album, Boys Like Girls have borrowed heavily from rock bands of the 80's. Think Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. They've also upped the electronic influence, becoming a band very different than the one heard on the first album. There are still some regressions back to whiny emo-ness, as I expected there would be, but the new sound suits them very well and there are a handful of tracks that are actually pretty awesome. The Shot Heard Round The World sounds like a long lost Bon Jovi single--an adrenaline fueled shout-along with a chorus that sounds like it's produced by Mutt Lange, circa 1986. Any song that begins with heavy breathing has gotta be good. Here's hoping album number three carries this sound even further.
