  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Jack’s Mannequin-“Everything In Transit”

The vocalist/songwriter for the band Something Corporate, Andrew McMahon, ventured away from the band and brought us his side project, Jack’s Mannequin.

‘Everything In Transit,’ doesn’t stray away from the Something Corporate sound, as it sounds much like other songs from their catalogue.

Lyrics are reminiscent of all the high school drama, and the music is typical emo-pop a type of music that doesn’t really explore the depths of imagination.

‘Everything In Transit’ sounds like it could compete for the soundtrack of the popular show, ‘The O.C.,’ so if you’re a fan of the music from that show, or just a fan of Something Corporate, then this album may be well-suited for your tastes.

But as far as artistic statement, this doesn’t have much to offer.

Tracks that stand out from the rest are ‘The Mixed Tape,’ the first single off the album. With lyrics like, ‘I can’t get to you,’ it paints a picture for the song about yearning for another soul.

‘Bruised,’ is the track that follows and serves as the strongest point in the album, yet another song about the alienation from being away from home and from the girl that captures McMahon love interest.

It is the story of the journey of a popular band along with the alienation from his home town..

This is not an album from Something Corporate, even though it sounds like it should.
