This past weekend, Hopeless Records released a compilation album called “Songs That Saved My Life,” benefitting mental health and suicide prevention organizations. The album features 12 bands that are signed to Hopeless Records, performing a cover of a song that saved their life. The album has some very strong components, opening with a Neck Deep cover of Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn,” and featuring other staples of the genre such as The Maine, Taking Back Sunday, Against Me!, and more. While there are weak points, the album as a whole gets the job done. Most of the bands chose to take their styles down a notch in terms of aggressiveness, and it lends to a calming tone- much of what you would expect from something like this, and it is appreciated. Some song choices seem odd in regards to the theme of the album, but overall the project was successful in my eyes.

Rating: 9/10
