What do you say about a band that sounds like Blink-182, but have been around since before Blink was big? Amazing Transparent Man, or ATM for short, has been together for about 3 years now [I think], and while they have a tendency to sound like the whole goofy pop-punk sound that Blink has popularized in recent times, they've been doing it for a while. This is by far the strongest outing for this Dekalb, IL three-piece. They plow through 8 songs in a little over 20 minutes, and it makes you wonder where the time went. They keep the listener attentive and energized the whole time. Being produced by Mass Giorgini doesn't hurt, as their vocals [both lead and backing] sound absolutely incredible. They also cover the Smoking Popes and Cyndi Lauper and do respectable jobs with each one. If you're looking to get into a new pop-punk band that writes great songs about girls and wears little pink shorts at most of their shows, give ATM a listen.

i herd "edit-undo" and it sounds just like blink 182. Buts it not that bad. Its sounds like there older stuff not like blinks new shit that no one likes(except for 10 year old girls who think there hot)

i think its probably worth the 10 bucks.

They don't really resemble blink... they sound much more raw and extremely less polished compared to blink, sum41, etc. Anyway, I don't really like 'em based on those two mp3s above. It's not absolute crap, but it's not my type of music either.

Um, Blink has been "big" for more than three years now. And any band who even resembles them automatically sucks ass.
