Who loves love? The Starting Line does! They're young! They are in a band! Rock on!

Let me start off with the bad. The Starting Line are cheesy...ridiculously cheesy. "I've been sleeping with the lights on so if I wake in the night your picture is clearly in sight. So lets meet at the mouth for a kiss that's been so long overdue, no thanks to the two thousand miles and the touring we always do (it makes me miss you more)" Kenny sings to some lucky young lady. While he may be winning over that girl with those words, they make me want to roll my eyes into my brain. The second track, "Selective", is completely forgettable as well. Five of the six tracks are about loving some girl or a vast array of girls (in "Playing Favorites" he sings that he has only written two songs for a certain girl...well what are the other two love songs, huh Kenny?)

Far too many bands are doing the acoustic-with-power-chords thing and pretty much all of them suck at it. The Starting Line don't offer much new musically, but they pull off the acoustic schtick pretty well. The addition of Casio keyboard blips and drumbeats on "Make Yourself at Home" and "The Nightlife" give the EP a Minus The Bear kind of feel, as both tracks are the highlights of the CD. "Make Yourself At Home" is a sweet ode to mom and dad and despite the cheesiness of that topic, it is a welcome releif from pining over a girl (or two). Considering that everything currently being released on Drive-Thru that has nothing to do with the Rx Bandits wears on my patience like none other, this cd isn't that bad. In fact, as far as Drive Thru is concerned this cd is good (I bet absolutepunk ate this up).

So all in all, this CD sounds good when a Casio keyboard is involved and certainly isn't bad. "The Best of Me" is one of the most annoying pop-punk songs I've ever heard, but its better acoustic (not much better). While the Aquabats brag about being lovers of loving love, I think the Starting Line take the cake with their songs about all the girls they are in love with. Not bad.

Well, it's cheesy because it's cliched love songs, which takes away a lot of whatever the intended emotion is.

As far as not being able to come up with anything like the Starting Line, you would be correct in saying that I have never written music like the Starting Line's.

well all i have to say is...
when the hell were there riules for what music people can play...
if they play like that then its not your job to make fun of them..
they're not trying to be anyone..they're just trying to make money and have a job...
and alot of punk bands have thier pop moments...
plus you notice that alot of punk sounds like pop....
ALL OF YOU PEOPLE HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO APPRECIATE OTHER MUSIC!!!
i listen to punk, emo, screamo, heavy, metal, goth, pop, classical, rock, easy rock, hip hop, reggae, rap, etc..not that i like them all...but hey i appreciate them!!!

People who do not like pop punk really should not be reviewing albums put out by pop punk bands... I just found this site today. As I look through I find that the person who reviewed 1980 by Rufio saying something about hating everything pop punk is... Good stuff.

And cheesy? Cheesy because you could never come up with anything near as good. It seems that everything passionate or sensual envolving men is either pussy or gay. We all have to act tuff and pretend we have no feelings.

I do have feelings. I could care less if I am called a pussy but I can't help feeling bad when my girlfriend and I are fighting.

This is a great cd, I would say its better than Say it Like you mean it. Maybe I only say this because its fresh and new. You people should really take the time to listen to it before dismissing it after hearing a lyric that does not involve some kind of violent or "tuff" message.

how can somehting be too pop punk...? ur gay!

Anonymous (April 20, 2004)

The Starting Line is too pop-punk for me.
i'd recommend it to a 12 year old who is interested in the "punk culture," or whatever.
I think everyone goes through that phase before they start liking real music, with good lyrics and good sound. (boys night out, co&ca, the used)

& stop hating you faggots, who listen to HXXXXXC shit.
ps.
theres a huge difference between hardcore/screamo music and punk/emo music.
thats like someone who likes rap saying "country sucks!" or whatever.
so go punch some walls and listen to your atreyu. :)

This album def. rocks and all u fags who are ubsessed with this site def. need a life! for surre... but all those hard core bands def. need to stop doing whatever they do. All they do is scream and u cant even understand them but they think they are better then these guys who actually write songs about real shit instead of how hard core they are... ya i def. dont understand this whole im emo thing.. if yer soo emo and dont care about n e thing why the fuck do u have to make sure everyone knows it..

They have definetly done better, and their full length album is better, I don't think they suit playing all the acoustic stuff.

At least these lot are better than Mest aka Good Charlotte bum-chums, I mean come on, Mest are a band that have made a name for themselves by being wanked over by Benji from GC.

At least make a justified comment, instead of "Starting Line are shit." It's not helpful or clever, just stupidity. What I'm suprised at is that no-one has labelled this "post-hardcore" or "emo-core" yet, since that's the trend for any1 on here. That if it aint Pantera and has come out within the last two years, it's gotta be emo or post-hardcore!!!!.

....wankers.

"If you listen to that and think that they are just making noise, you are nuts. It is heavy, granted, but it is so tight and the musicianship is incredible.

Although hardcore isn't my favorite genre, bands like that listed above show more musicianship than most music I listen to.

Also, I'm not talking "punk hardcore" which is probably what you are referring to in the "yelling about killing the rich" comment."

No, the Dils were not hardcore. Hardcore was originally (and how I like it best) 100 percent passion... Musicality was not the issue.

New hardcore focuses too much on heaviness, not on speed. It sounds like some ugly mix of grind and sludge metal. Fuck that. Compare the Circle Jerks, D.O.A., and Discharge to Snapcase, Helmet, or Converge. New hardcore sounds more like "alternative metal"... That's not to say hardcore can't evolve, but this new stuff just isn't hardcore. It's metal.

"The Shape of Punk to Come" didn't impress me to much... I still like it a lot, but the "originality" you guys found in it had already been done by Crass... Listen to "Stations of the Crass"... It has everything on the Refused... Radio samples, techno dance, dubby bass lines, but really super fast, not to mention instruments anyone who bought "Feeding of the 5000" would least expect to pop up on a Crass record... And political rants, minus the oblique and contradicting lyrics.

i will agree w/ whoever posted that yellowcard could do this better. every acoustic song i've heard by them is really good. firewater is one of their best songs. kenny's voice in this band is waaay to gay, only that guy in simple plan has a cornier voice

Anonymous (January 16, 2004)

now i love pop punk, i do, but i heard these guys acoustic song on the punk goes acoustic comp and it was really, really fucking bad. its the reason people shit all over this genre. pop punk would be good if this shit and simple plan, etc. would go away. i mean really, greenday, old blink, limp, old saves the day, midtown, mest, there are some great bands in the genre but it gets to diluted when nfg gone soft sounding bands like this come out

Dude below. Your a fucking moron. Neither Thrice or Glassjaw are hardcore. most of the bands he listed are not hardcore. The locust is not hardcore.

You seem to be confusing old school hardcore as being any band with a old sounding name you never heard of.

You also seem to be confusing new school hardcore with all this genre mixing bullshit.

And lastly, you seem to be confusing idiocy with intelligence.

Go squeeze into your diesels.

what hardcore bands are you referring to that yell about killing the rich? Just so I know where you're coming from.

If you want to listen to some good hardcore check out Misery Signals or As I Lay Dying...

If you listen to that and think that they are just making noise, you are nuts. It is heavy, granted, but it is so tight and the musicianship is incredible.

Although hardcore isn't my favorite genre, bands like that listed above show more musicianship than most music I listen to.

PetroBPettson (January 16, 2004)

Fucking Thriceday and Glassjaw? Come the fuck on! Most of those bands I listed aren't even hardcore bands. And it's not like The Locust are even near my favorite in that list. And the Starting Line still and always will suck syphlitic sack.

"i think it's sad that you have such a huge list of bad music. hardcore music is the worst music on the planet, unless done exceptionally well (i.e. Glassjaw, Thrice)."

Hhahaha... Yeah, when I wanna hear hardcore done right, I put on Thrice and Glassjaw... FYI, most all those bands were not hardcore, either... But you might think so... Most ignorant pop punkers like yourself are scared shitless hearing guys without sculpted haircuts shouting about killing the rich...

FINAL THOUGHTS: You are a dumbass.

i think it's sad that you have such a huge list of bad music. hardcore music is the worst music on the planet, unless done exceptionally well (i.e. Glassjaw, Thrice). otherwise, none of you can tell me that it's anything more than kids who had there mommy's buy them guitars so they could make a bunch of noise that sounded scary enough to make them feel a lil less girly (i.e. The terrible terrible Locust).

oh...and the starting line is mildy annoying, but Kenny definately needs to be thrown off a bridge. his voice is crap.

I thought the reviewer hated this, but it turns out he doesn't come the last paragraph. Honestly, music like this has no place in the world, not even for little kids. It makes them think this bullshit has some standard of quality and forever sets the bar so low they'll buy anything. I wonder how 2 people who are probably atleast 25 would honestly put this out and actually think it's good. I can bet less than 1% of other people who like this band are over 25, so how could the people who own Drive Thru?? I mean, even if you liked the music, the lyrics are so horrible it not only makes me sad to claim I listen to punk, it actually makes me want to kill myself.

this cd is actually pretty good, especially when compared to their full length. they recorded it themselves and the casio is a very nice touch. for a 19 year old kid, you cant ask for much more. besides, he gets more ass than everyone here combined...and who doesnt think thats cool?

Anonymous (January 9, 2004)

normally i would agree with the below statement. minus the bear is really really good. however, track 4 honestly has a minus the bear feel with some twangy guitar parts and the casio keyboard.

plus you are making that statement based on past knowlege of the band. this EP is their best material, and you haven't listened to this cd. hey blink 182 released a good cd, why can't these guys release a non-bad one?

hey, i wrote this, and after listening to it a couple more times i want to change my review to a 5.

Here's my explaination. I'm not a fan of starting line, i dont like their generic pop punk that much at all. drive-thru kinda brings it on themselves when they sign bands that all sound the same (sans Rx Bandits). since i want to keep my punk points to cash in later for some sweet studded jewelry, i only bought this album because i had 7 bucks left on a walmart gift card and i heard the first track already (the best track).

all in all this cd is not bad. which, i suppose, is an accomplishment.

anyway, if any moderator dudes could change it to a 5 star review, even though you don't have proof that this is actually benz (i forget my password), that would be cool

eh.. have to say although i have grown out of the whole pop punk scene.. i still do like this band ((but i do realize the gayness of that as well)). and for putting out an acoustic cd its good. basically, if you have any interest what so ever in this band pick it up.. and if not, then dont, cause its just not your style..

of course thats why emo/pop bands like this sing about breakups! jesus! they want ass, what 18-25 yr old guy doesnt want to hook up w/ some girl? it doesnt make them hipocrits or assholes. write breakup songs and love songs cuz thats the shit girls like to hear. "oh i'm so sensitive, i cry." it doesnt mean that their elaborate schemers trying to use girls. they just are writing songs that girls like, and songs all about girls, because thats what they like. girls that listen to this band want to fuck them and they want ass. all parties are happy.
