While Good Charlotte went away for a little bit, mercifully they returned in July of this year to grace us all with Youth Authority. In many ways, Youth Authority is like a comfortable hug from the Good Charlotte that we all know and love. Yet, lyrically, the album seems decidedly wise and more than a little reminiscent of days past. One song that highlights this wistful take on adulthood is “The Outfield,” a delightful track that tells the story of the trials and tribulations endured to find, “...a love that’s true.”
If you haven’t already treated your ears to the awesomeness that is Youth Authority I would recommend you do so immediately. Trust me, it’s more than worth it (album available here).
