The Strange Case Of... By Halestorm
Before the album came out, they released the Hello, It's Mz. Hyde EP featuring 4 songs from The Strange Case Of... album: "Love Bites (So Do I)," "Rock Show," "Daughters of Darkness," and "Here's To Us."
The songs on the album are:
Love Bites (So DoI)
I Miss the Misery
Freak Like Me
Beautiful With You
In Your Room
Daughters of Darkness
You Call Me A Bitch Like It's A Bad Thing
Here's To Us
ALL OF THEM!!!!!!! How can someone choose the best song off this album? All of them are sooooo good!
"I Miss the Misery" is a song that I find particularly funny because, being a teenager, I see kids who put themselves through miserable relationships for no good reasons and it really does seem like they only stay in the relationship because they enjoy the misery.
The lyrics to "American Boys" are laughable and amusing. Lzzy must not have thought about the fact that she is the only girl in the band and so the song seems a little odd. Nevertheless, an amazing song.
The song "Rock Show" is all about going to the rock show of your favourite performer, or seeing your very first rock show. This takes me way back to my first rock show, which was Jethro Tull, and he was performing Aqualung. Ever since I've seen so many different concerts I'll forget, but that one I'll remember forever.
The songs "Mz. Hyde" and "Daughters of Darkness" are so catchy and fun and danceable. Then there are the unforgettable slow songs... "Beautiful With You," "In Your Room," "Break In," and "Here's To Us," which, when you hear, you find irresistible to sing along to. "Break In" was performed as a solo, just Lzzy singing and playing the piano, and it was beautiful. In fact, it was beyond beautiful. Her voice is so fabulous and clear and it was such a treat to hear that.
I suggest you go check it out!
