The elementary school talent show. While it may have been an excuse to get out of doing long division or studying state capitals for a few hours, it was always essentially just as boring as the work you were doing anyhow. But did you care? Hell no, you were out of class! Of course, none of these act.
The elementary school talent show. While it may have been an excuse to get out of doing long division or studying state capitals for a few hours, it was always essentially just as boring as the work you were doing anyhow. But did you care? Hell no, you were out of class! Of course, none of these acts would be any good; you'd have some juggling, maybe a song or two, or the same kid every year who tried to ride a unicycle but fell down anyhow. Nothing to remember ever comes out of these things, but wait, there are the Van Ermans. This band comprised of 3 kids who can't even legally buy a 12-pack yet actually got their start, you guessed it, at an elementary school talent show.
Sometimes I feel restless, I feel overdone / I'm so sick, so tired of my everyday time complications / Hard to be -- just to breathe, you're a habit I don't need / All this seemed, repetition to me/ So much time, so little of it set aside for me to live my life.Ouch guys, that's going to dock you some points.
Youthful exuberance will only take a band so far, and the Van Ermans have found the end of that road on this album. Admittedly, they're far past the majority of bands their age in maturity and songwriting, but a few more years and a better understanding of how important flow to an album is will do great things for this trio. A commendable effort from a young band with all the potential pop-punk could possibly offer.
