I found Taking Chances after seeing Gerard in Spring Awakening. I kinda bought the CD on a whim, but I'm SOOO glad I did. It's an amazing CD and I listen to it all the time. I've even got a few friends that want the CD now, too!

Taking Chances is love
I am in love with this CD. I can't get enough of it. Gerards voice is gorgeous. The melodies and harmonies are fantastic and I love the sound that this band has. The lyrics are beautiful and fun (especially Lion) and every time I listen to these songs I love this band more and more. The sound is great and it's a lot of fun. What more could you ask for? 2 thumbs way up =)


Take a chance..
And buy this album! I listen to it constantly. Gerard's voice is strong and the the lyrics are beautifully written. These four boys are extremely talented and have a bright future ahead of them. I fall in love with them a little more each time I listen. So buy it! You won't regret it!

Taking Chances Worth the Risk
The debut CD from Taking Chances perfectly fuses driving rock rhythms and strong melodies with excellent storytelling lyrics for an outstanding music experience. It's a CD you'll wear out from overuse -- so buy more than one!
