Songs for the Brokenhearted

Songs for the Brokenhearted is one of a million small compilation CDs put out by tiny record labels. But this one is good. With contributing artists such as Metroshifter, Action League, Roadside Monument, Boy Sets Fire, The Juliana Theory, and Jimmy Eat World, how could it not be? All of the above contribute good tracks, as well as bonuses from Onelinedrawing (Jonah from Far), One Hundred Words for Snow (there’s an emo band for you), Mastodon, and J Church. These are all songs about heartbreak and broken relationships. How’s that for emo? A good, solid compilation album, with the only low point being that it tends toward the mellow side.
