Forever Broken Album, Reviewed by Jason Stoner, Poptartzine.com
Dexter Danger? What a name, I love it. Well Dexter Danger is a band that plays California poppunk. The one thing that sets them apart from the rest of those bands is lead singer Aymen Trouble's nasaly yet extremely catchy voice. He has one of those voices that sticks in your head and you can't help but sing along. On "Forever Broken" they give us 12 fast paced songs about what else, girls. Like I said these are incredibly poppy songs that stick in your head like gum on the bottom of your shoe. The best songs on the release are "The Second I Asked For" which has a kick-ass drum beat at one part and "View Her Discretion" which starts off with some distorted vocals and then blends into a catchy chorus and some vocal harmonies that this band pulls of very well. This is by far way better than any pop punk that you are going to buy from a label like Drive-Thru. I give this band a lot of credit for putting together such a solid recording without the backing of a label. Certainly that won't be the case for long with their loyal local following and a sound that has been sweeping the pop charts lately these guys are sure to have some offers to be deciding over shortly.

I got the new album early; I was very excited and rightfully so. While some may be critical about the re-release of some of their older songs, they carry new life with the new guitarist Miguel Ceja. With his addition, the set is complete. Each song gains new fullness and power. The re-releases are well worth hearing.
I'd like to shine the spotlight on the 2 previously unheard songs The Angel That Got Away and Crimson Pools. The Angel That Got Away is a deep heartfelt cry to a loved one who has left and no one can do this better than Dexter Danger. This acoustic ballad strikes the heart with an uprising melody to contradict the sad lyrics, a feat few can do while still keeping the thought intact. Aymen Trouble's haunting voice does just the trick to make a true beauty of a song. Crimson Pools is a confusion of feelings that comes with a torrid breakup. With a hook that grabs your attention and doesn't let go, this is one song that truly shows Dexter Danger's growth as musicians.
Dexter Danger is one of the few bands that have escaped the pitfall of an album, redundancy. With many bands/albums the songs seem to fall together, blurring. This is not the case with Forever Broken. Each song stands alone in its own epic. Each song has its own personality and is unlike any other. This is an album everyone needs to hear. If you're already a fan, it will make you love Dexter Danger all the more, if not, you will be. So go buy it!!! This is Aiden Dire saying goodbye, much love and PUNK ROCK FOREVER!

Forever Broken Album, reviewed by Skratch Magazine
"Formed in South San Francisco in 2000, the members of Dexter Danger are young -- so young that they can't walk into a liquor store for a 40 of Mickey's. They name their influences as Saves The Day, Green Day, and Dashboard Confessional. They are playing dates on this year's Vans Warped Tour. All of this becomes evident while listening to their self-released album, "Forever Broken". Every song on the album is pure pop/punk -- fast, catchy and, well, punk in a non-threatening, Hot Topic fashion. Dexter Danger goes about their business well and, if you are a pop/punk sort of person, you will enjoy this disc."
