I don't know where to begin with this album. It is all I've listened to for a while now. It's a NYC band who has some really good So-Cal, melodic punk sounds to them. I can't stop turning it to eleven and blowing out my ears to their shit. "Missing the Innocence" is my favorite song by Cooter, .

I don't know where to begin with this album. It is all I've listened to for a while now. It's a NYC band who has some really good So-Cal, melodic punk sounds to them. I can't stop turning it to eleven and blowing out my ears to their shit.

"Missing the Innocence" is my favorite song by Cooter, just because of the words, but all of their songs are music candy. It's fast, is heart-felt, and it's loud. They have a definite major label sound (as hard as that is to admit, and even though they aren't there yet) but there is something about Cooter that keeps them on-edge and addictive.

To be honest, I love this band. I see big things for their future. They will be playing with The Movie Life, Thursday and Glassjaw on their April shows, and will be playing with H20 and Midtown during May! I highly recommend Cooter, live and on cd. It isn't often when lyrics, pounding beats, and talented music come together like Looking Up does. they are a great band, who will impress anyone who gives them the initial listen.

This is really good cd, I'm lucky enough to have the original cd (when their name was cooter, when hardly anyone fucking listened to them). Fast, aggressive, and not too poppy. It would be perfect if it laid back on some of the bouncy guitars but the speed of most of the songs overwrite that. The singer's voice is amazing too and the lyrics are also good as well. Rad cd.

It's an alright cd, some good catchy songs, but all the songs sound alike.

This cd definetly rocks. It combines pop-punk, with a bit of hardcore to get a great sound. Not one bad song on the album, and all of them have good fast punk beats with great guitar riffs. My favorite songs are "Looking Up" "Full House" "Friday Mourning" and "Something for Everyone". Oh yeah they also changed their name to Autopilotoff, their next cd will probably come out under that name, and so will new prints of this one. So get the Cooter cd while it's still around it will be a collectors piece in the future.
