So this band spells their name with a star and then the number seven. I think I could have ended the review at that, but hey, I'm a nice guy. I'll try to flesh it out a bit more. You know those bands who try to play punk music without having any knowledge of punk? You know, they are in an alt-roc.

So this band spells their name with a star and then the number seven.

I think I could have ended the review at that, but hey, I'm a nice guy. I'll try to flesh it out a bit more. You know those bands who try to play punk music without having any knowledge of punk? You know, they are in an alt-rock band that all of a sudden takes a turn towards Blink 182. They have names like Lit and SR-71. Guess what? They also have names like Starseven. And they all suck.

Oh. I just figured it out. They're Italian*. Of course they have no idea what they're doing. They also have Atticus, Macbeth, and Fernandes logos plastered all over their website and record. But no record label. Just corporate sponsors. Ugghh, this is the type of music you'd find in an extreme motocross video. Oh wait! They just had a song on some motocross video! I don't know what else I have to say about it. It's terrible.

*With this comment I mean no disrespect to the people of Italy. It's just that you didn't grow up listening to the Stooges or MC5. Sure you got the Ramones and all the shit that we send over there now as part of our pop-culture, but that doesn't count. You don't know what punk rock was (or was supposed to be since I don't believe that true "punk" ever existed except for in the ideals of many older bands [which many of you are going to try to crucify me over]). But yeah. Four chords doesn't make you punk. Eh, this review sucks.

What's going up here? Do you all speak about music here on this page?
I don't have listend to any song of Starseven, but it doesn't care! The guys worked for something they believed into, like every band! So if you review a cd, thing about that. The sound can be bullshit, ok write this, but with respect!

And Jessy, if you make this job only cause you get payed for that...ts ts. I thing you know nothing about music and culture.
You will tell people in Europe they don't grew up with punk??? Hello??? You really don't learn nothing at school there. First read about history....hint: sex pistols etc.

And to the guy who things pizza is the olny thing italians brought to the USA.... this are sure guys, who have Prada shoes, ore a Beneton underweare, ou ou yes a Diesel jeans ore perhaps something of Valentino?Or the go out and drink a cappucino or a Martini... eat pasta,....... who cares!

Jesse (January 31, 2005)

Stooges and the MC5. 1969. Now try to tell me where punk came from again?

that's one of the dumbest reviews i've read in my entire life. as if music knew boundaries... and as if punk were a product of the united states.

Italy brought us the world's greatest computer game plumber, so it's not all bad.

oh, who fucking cares. All of you are a punch of whining fucking pricks. Boohoo, poor Italy, Jessie said they dont get Punk Rock. It was really stupid to say, and even stupider to try and back up, but he didnt fucking eat a baby. Calm down.

You're right. I think it's actually supposed to read:

"but hey, I'm an asshole"

Good catch, I didn't even see it at first.

Heheh... Jesse vs. Italy

Scores for the last comment.

Dude, don't be a pussy and put in some sort of apology for Italy. What the fuck have they done for us in the past 1000 years? Pizza's cool and all, but it doesn't excuse hairy chicks. Fuck Italy.

Silly Italians, mustauches are for men.

Jesse (January 28, 2005)

Dude, I can't give a CD like this more than 20 minutes of reviewing time, and I got it to review. Sorry, other reviews are better.

Costanza (January 28, 2005)

Wow, shitty, shitty review, for an even shittier band. Now, as much as I've agreed with you before, lately you've been slipping. Lay off the drugs, or Bowie, or whatever's causing you to write these pieces of shit.

Jesse (January 28, 2005)

Oops. Slave labor; you get what you pay for. Hey, I had to review it. It was my job.

Medley (January 28, 2005)

I understand the comment of these guys perhaps not being well-versed in the roots of punk, but I very much doubt most of us here grew up "listening to the Stooges or MC5."

Anonymous (January 28, 2005)

To the guy below me: Haha, great fucking eye.

And yes, Jesse, this review sucked. All of your reviews for the past few months have sucked. Stop it.

I'd also like to register my vote that the Italy comment was weak.

Just... stop.

Seven is a number.

Terrible review, terrible album.

Why is this even on the site? Let's start spending our time on shit worth reviewing, kay? Either be important, or good or both.

Anonymous (January 28, 2005)

the commetns abour italy were unnecessary.
but whatever men..

Anonymous (January 28, 2005)

the review was going good until you ignorantly wrote off everybody who lives in italy for having no idea of punk music. i'm thinking that you are the ignorant idiot.
