  • Clb from A Place, VaI love P!ATD and I think the new album shows real talent on their part. they are able to conform to anything. <3
  • Sarah from Philadelphia, PaThis song is actually about Ryan and his girlfriend Keltie. It's basically about how they met and how they've helped each other through difficult times and whatnot and how they've stuck together.
  • Latasha from Austin, TxYeah I also love northen downpour
    It's so beautiful! It gives me chills lol. At first when I heard some of their new CD i was like, woah!! Ew I don't like it. But now I'm listeing to it more, and I love it! The cd's are so diffrent but I love each and every song by them!!
  • Yareli from Amsterdam, NyTHANK you amanda. Finally someone who understands that a little versitility isn't such a bad THING!
  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmI Love it! Its like a little story! these boys are amazing!
  • Amanda from Evergreen, CoThis is absolutely my favorite song on the new album! It's just so beautiful. I have to say the CD Pretty. Odd. is SO different from the last one! When I listen to the old one and then the new one, it's like two different bands! But that is what I LOVE about PATD because it wouldn't be any good if they sounded exactly the same as the last one, am I right? So this is my favorite song and so is Northern Downpour. Good job PATD and keep it back! I'm glad they are back!
