One of their song titles is "Just Pull The Trigger." I couldn't agree more. This CD is so derivative of every emo band out there right now. Is there any reason for a band like this to exist? I mean, it's not even remotely original. Every song seems to fall into the mid-tempo emo-rock vein, and each song just plods along. The lyrics are nothing if not stereotypically "emo", and the song titles? Gimme a break. "Fashion Before Function." "Milemarker 92." "At Wit's End." This CD just screams sweaters and horn-rimmed glasses. Buddy Holly, anyone? I wish there was something nice I could say about this band, since they seem like nice people, but I just can't get anything to come out. Heck, they're even pretty boring live [all except for their drummer, who was fun to watch -- I've never seen anyone throw that much energy into pounding the skins -- kudos]. Kids, please pass on this. Go to the source of the water, not the spot where all the streams slam into each other and create a mess.

I must say that this band , and more or less this album, is by far the most god awful, unorignal down right sad waste of perfectly good cd's.

yuck.

yeah, that review is pretty shady. i'm not quite sure the reviewer really listened to the cd at all. it's by far one of my favorite cds.

WOW I cant believe this review. There live show is awesome. They put a lot of energy into there shows and there fun to watch. I think this CD is very catchy and is a great effort for there first full length. If you get a chance to see them live GO and judge for yourself!

i couldnt disagree with this review more..i first heard/saw Badillac Blindside on an opening slot for the impossibles and thier live show and sound blew me away..the c.d. is great and theres not a single track i dislike..Cadillac Blindside blindside just plain rock....honest lyrics,good music and awesome double vocals..if you want trite generic emo garbage try the lateset offering from one of the million Saves The Day/NFG/ clones..if you want music that will rock youlike a hurricane, give this a listen

Well I gotta say that this review isn't what I expected...

This album is refreshing. The vocals are intense and quite honest...

This isn't a perfect record but their sound is great... anyway you gotta try this once...
