Celebrating the tenth anniversary of Ocean Avenue, the platinum-selling major-label debut of Florida pop-punk band Yellowcard, Ocean Avenue Acoustic finds the band reimagining its commercial breakthrough as an unplugged album. While the acoustic renditions of the songs certainly have a more pastoral and contemplative feeling about them, Yellowcard still manage to keep the energy that made the album so vital when it was released in 2003. The main feeling that comes through on Ocean Avenue Acoustic is one of reflection, which will gives fans the opportunity to toss this one on the stereo and take a trip down memory lane to experience all of the heartache and hopefulness in a whole new way.
