#1 Dear Diary

So #1 of my Top 5 favorite CD's is Dear Diary by FM Static! I love this CD because it is really encouraging and it sounds kuel too! Dear Diary has a Pop/punk sound and it is also a Concept Album, so the whole CD is one story about a teenager named Aero. Aero moved to a new town and decided to keep a diary of everything, so basically the CD is his diary. I will tell you a little bit about each song, but really the names of the songs describe them pretty good!

The first song  is "Boy Moves To A New Town With Optimistic Outlook" and as the name implies the song is about Aero having a positive attitude about moving.  The second song is called "The Unavoidable Battle Of Feeling On The Outside" and it is about Aero trying to fit in and not getting discouraged. This is one of my favorite songs off the Cd, because it encourages you to be yourself! The third song is "Boy Meets Girl (And Vise Versa)" this is my dads favorite song on the whole Cd because it has a sweet rock sound! This song is about Aero meeting a girl named E.T. A couple of my favorite lines on this song are "The fireworks go off whenever she comes my way" and "Until now I thought that all girls were the same". The fourth song is "Sometimes You Can Forget Who You Are", this song is about knowing who you are and not letting others tear you down. The fifth song is "Man Watcha Doin?" and this song is basically saying that money doesn't buy happiness. The sixth song is "The Voyage Of Beliefs" and Tricia from Superchick also sings in this song! The song is about making God your own and having your own relationship with him. I would have to say that this is my favorite song on the whole Cd, it has great lyrics and I love that Tricia sings on this one because it adds alot to it! The Seventh song is "Her Fathers Song" and its about Aero wanting to be there for E.T. after her dad commits suicide. This song is kinda of a slow and almost sad song because by this point in the Cd you are so wrapped up in the story. The Eighth song is "Take Me As I Am" and in this song Aero is asking God to accept him as he is. One of my favorite lines from this song is "Sometimes you just gotta look closer instead of searching so hard" The ninth song is "Dear God" and this is a slower song that is basically about Aero writing a letter to God. The tenth song or should I say the last song is "The Shindig (Off To College)" and this song is about Aero going to college and celebrating! I hope you enjoyed my first EVER CD review!
