Dusk and Summer


Emo poster boy Chris Carrabba continues to get all touchy-feely, leading with his emotions on the fourth studio album from his brainchild Dashboard Confessional. He tugs at all the right heartstrings on shimmery tracks like "So Long, So Long," featuring guest vocals by Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, and the Cure-lite "Stolen." But all that sharing and caring can get to be too much like wimpy whining.
