Album Review

Reviewed 2008-06-24
Poppy punk trio from San Jose. Pretty good stuff. More often than not, this has enough “oomph” to carry over. Comparable to Screeching Weasel, Dillinger Four, The Muffs and even Superchunk (especially in the vocals).

((((1))) Super negative but poppy punk with nasly but kinda infectious vocals.
(((2)))) Catchy and eh, "hooky" but the vocals are a too redundant to be fully enjoyable.
((((3)))) Polished, poppy punk. Suitable for all ages. (Well, maybe not the totally doomed lyrics).
(((4))) Nice uppity guitar sound & tight verses but the chorus is just so-so.
(((((5))))) Sharp & focused balanced almost evenly on loud power-pop & punk. File under "should be a hit in some alternative universe".
(((6))) Cynical and what they used to call "snotty" punk but a little too repetitive.
((((7)))) Basic rockin' riff, nice build up in each verse up to the chorus with good backing vox. Similar to early Superchunk.
(((8))) Bare bones poppy punk with a "piss off" attitude. Not bad but a little TOO simple.
((((9)))) Killer guitar sound and more power-pop/punk collisions.
(((10))) Too reliant on flat verses but a generally good guitar sound.
((11)) *Meh* too much pop and not enough punk here.
(((12))) Really good guitar/bass sound that carries over the just OK vocals.
