Tyrannosaurus is a short and sub-par release and so, I present you with a short and sub-par review.

GetAmped are some sort of rock three-piece from the U.K., and Tyrannosaurus is a two-song single. The first track, "Tyrannosaurus," is a typical, "I heard punk was selling so I'll throw in some of those elements" track that recalls bands like Bowling For Soup or Riddlin' Kids. There is some pop-punk palm muting and even a shout of "Go!" to open the song, but the over-produced and horrible take on Fat Mike's nasally tone and the song's overall "made in the studio" feel leaves it pretty, but lifeless, like a corpse that was prepared by the best funeral home in town. The second track "Plug Me In" sounds like an exercise to create a nĂ¼-metal song that results in a painful aping of Papa Roach that disappoints on every level.

Yeah, the production is crystal clear, but other than that, there isn't much worth hearing here.

It's funny how this short review says more than most of 500 word reviews on this site.
