Dashboard Confessional’s third studio album, A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar, expands the parameters of the band’s earlier acoustic-based sound, with the addition of electric guitars and more complex drumming enhancing frontman Chris Carrabba’s emo-lite songcraft. Credit producer Gil Norton’s (Pixies, Counting Crows, Foo Fighters) uncanny arranging skills. And credit Carrabba’s ear for melody for ”A Mark”’s heartfelt heft.
