YMMV / James Durbin

  • Covered Up: Most people who listen to Durbin's album are unaware that "Everything Burns" was originally recorded by Anastacia and Ben Moody. Even fewer are aware that it was recorded by Avril Lavigne before that.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The title track from Riot on Sunset.
  • Ear Worm: A good number of these, including "Stand Up", "Outcast", "Screaming", "All I Want", "Higher Than Heaven", and even the very somber "Everything Burns."
    • Celebrate gives us "Parachute" and "Fool For You".
  • Lyrical Dissonance: "Everything Burns" and "Love In Ruins" are both reasonably catchy songs, but the lyrics are pretty dark.
  • Tear Jerker: Good luck listening to "May" without crying.
