Best Song: Speaking of youth, a trip to A Second Goodbye's (A2G for the hip kids) Myspace shows that the band is pretty young looking. I'm not going to take any guesses on just how young, but they can't be that much older than 20. Youth aside, "Faith" has to be the best song here. Its jangly guitar intro gives way to pretty standard pop punk fare, but that's okay. These guys know their pop punk, listing Sum 41, Blink 182, .38 Special and +44 as musical influences. They do what they know and they do it quite well. It's hard to differentiate between good and bad pop punk since it all sounds so much alike, but A Second Goodbye have a good foundation going.
