Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-04-23
Dutch band that excels at basic power boogie rock with a punk flavor a la the Groovie Ghoulies, Muffs, Social Distortion. Moments border on pop-punk but thank god they never fully tilt all the way. Better songs demonstrate their wit, poking fun at themselves, their nationality, or life in general.

1) basic rockin power pop-punk, w/ boogie guits, surfy drums
2) silly ode to Netherlands/holland/nederlands/etc… title track w/ horns, etc
3) upbeat galloping punk, ode to backstage/dressing room
4) slower, more sensitive, avoid
5) FCC
6) swaggering rock
7) upbeat, sounds more Alabama than dutch
8) swaggering gear head feel and theme (I thought the dutch rode bikes?)
9) upbeat punky
10) shounds liksh dutsh, swaggering silly about stink
11) slick sensitive indie pop rock, avoid (FCC?)
12) FCC in intro, upbeat punk follows
13) qualifies as 2/4 punk, sung in dutch
