Iím going to let you all in on a little secret. If you send a CD to Scott and it doesnít grab him on the first listen, heíll toss it to one of his reviewers. Because he doesnít want to listen to crap. He doesnít mind making the rest of us listen to crap, and heíll try to distribute it to people that he thinks will enjoy it, but sometimes you get a CD from Scott and want to punch him. Thatís why I donít write reviews often, because it makes me want to punch Scott.
I really owe this band an apology. Run Silent Run Deep, I offer you my sincerest apologies. I think I told you Iíd have your review up by January. Whoops. The problem was, I couldnít make myself listen to this CD that you call Season of Fire. I wish it was the ďSeason of FireĒ right now because I would burn this CD. At first I was flattered, because Run Silent Run Deep asked Scott to pass this CD off to me if he didnít have time to review it. You see, they read my review of those poor bastards The Carlsonics, and hoped to get a fair review out of me. Oh yeah, but first they called me a ďbitter, sarcastic reviewer.Ē Be careful what you ask for. Masochists or not, I donít think youíre ready for this.
This CD makes my ears bleed. I canít stand the singerís voice. Itís whiny and just sounds off-key. Weak sauce. This bandís little letter that they sent to ďGreat ScottĒ claimed that they had developed a strong and loyal, local and college following in D.C. Further proof that Washington D.C. is full of idiots other than Dismemberment Plan in my opinion.
Blah blah blah. This album is formulaic, at best. At worst, itís lame and stupid. Lyrically it couldíve been written by a 12-year-old. This albumís been on my iPod for months and anytime it came up on random I would scream and rush to change it. Thatís how irritating I find it. Maybe this band isnít too bad, but I canít get past the whiny vocals. Oh who am I kidding? This is horrible. I canít even distinguish between the songs because it seems as though it gets progressively worse as time goes by. Listening to this is almost 35 minutes of my life that Iíll never get back.
This is early 90ís crap rock that was too crappy to even make it to the radio, and we all know just how crappy you have to be for that. Oh wait, a fast song just came on, itís called, ďSigns,Ē and wowÖ waitÖ it sounds like any other imitation modern rock band. Singer boy is trying to sound angry now. Singing about killing off our trees? Please, just stop now. Hold on, Iím looking this band up on MySpaceÖ I want to see how many friends they have if theyíre on there. That took too long. Let me just tell you, this band is worse than Creed. Iím going to leave it at that. Judge for yourself.
