Love rooftops | Reviewer: Sarah Mack | 5/4/07
I don't particularly like emo stuff, but rooftops describes a feeling that is beautiful, life affirming. Everybody has their moments of intensity. Teenagers are intense because everything is so new. But it doesn't end there. Emos seem to think it does which limits them severely. Life is a journey of intensities, hills and vales, lights and darks, indescribable joy, even moments of terror.
good song | Reviewer: John | 4/13/07
its not the best song ever but its pretty good. i don't really know a lot about the band as people mentioned above. but listen to the song and don't get too wrapped up in the band. you should like music for what it is not for who made it.
the music video is awesome and kool, it relates to the lyrics alot!!!also ian is really kool!!!

Rooftops? | Reviewer: Mrs. Ian Watkins :) | 3/17/07
Lostprophets are awesome.
Lyrics were never Ian's strong point. Some have great meanings, some sounds awesome, but some are lame.
This has bad points.
Mainly the commercialisity (New word?) of it. They have changed to fit with the times.
However, if they change then produce kool stuff like this..
Not their best song, not the best song off of Liberation Transmission.
But classy stuff.
Keep rocking, Lostprophets :)
''emo'' shit | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/31/06
I hate this song. And musically it's terrible, lyrically worse. For ages everyone I knew hated lostphrophets and I thought, Jesus give them the benefit of the doubt you only heard one song. But then they released song after song, and played around with so many images and different sounds, not because they were experimenting but hated and being commercial and trying to be liked. Finally they came along at the right moment and threw themselves into them emo scene, with the most emo bunch of crap I've heard yet (except for hawthorn heights they're even worse) they aren't even teenagers, I hate when bands do that. What I hate most about this song besides the false image, over-repetition, and cliche silly random stupid unemotional lyrics and terrible sound, is this apathy (because emo is) and this whole idea that only certain type of people are ''tormented'' shall we say. If you're into that crap then I'd advice it. Moany commercialism about unimportant crap in the world, that about people who don't dress ''punk/emo'' and get raped by their parents? This song is just a bunch of immature talent-less desperate people moaning. It didn’t' convey anything meaningful or deep. I'd give it a -10/10
