Catalyst (2004)

Details Release Date: May 18, 2004; Lead Performance: New Found Glory

Having scored two gold albums before most of their members had reached the age of 25, New Found Glory are nothing if not precocious. On ''All Downhill From Here,'' ''Catalyst'''s first single, the pop-punkers melt hearts with typically swooning melodies and crashing guitars. Elsewhere, they ace everything from string-laden balladry (''I Don't Wanna Know'') to surging hardcore (''At Least I'm Known for Something''). They may have eyes for the Top 40, but these skater boys still know how to rock.
