Plenty of teenagers have started bands. Some have never made it past a basement practice, let alone a first gig. Still others have left behind some valuable pieces of music that have stood the test of time. Think about how young the members of Minor Threat or Operation Ivy were, and yet we still play those albums today. Let's not kid ourselves though; bands that strike a chord that is that big and resonates for this long at such a young age are few and far between. So while Orange may be the envy of all their peers for gaining access to Tim Armstrong's fold, they have not produced a rare underage gem.

On Welcome to the World Of‚?¶, Orange have taken a paint-by-numbers approach to their pop-punk sound. They are simply content to use the colors asked for, stay within the lines, and hang up the finished product in a shiny new frame. The production is slick, the songwriting is formulaic, and unfortunately, those are the album's good points. Otherwise Orange have a lot work to do.

The band's sound is typical pop-punk that utilizes rehashed chord progressions, typical verse/chorus structures, and a soft to loud dynamic that is all too predictable. Orange do have a bag of tricks, but it isn't very deep, and they end up using the same ones over and over. For example, just check out how on the final chorus of most songs, a guitar lead suddenly kicks in, or how nearly every riff on the album sounds like someone merely sliding up and down on one string. The two hidden tracks seem to be the only place the band changes up their tone, and those tracks (one has diabolic laughter and crunchy metal chords, while the other is merely an acoustic version of a song from the album) seem to fare just as poorly.

Because the songs are power pop-punk in the vein of the Matches and polished by the production 'till they're blind, the vocals need to serve as the driving force here, and unfortunately, they don't. Instead, singer Joe Denman's voice is frail and unconvincing. His "snarl" sounds like it is coming from the confines of a comfortable studio, not the heart, and his lyrics do nothing to aid his weak delivery. Whether it is a Kelly Osbourne-like rant of "The sky is blue / the grass is green / blah blah blah / you know what I mean," the downright embarrassing "From the E to the O to the stereo / pimpin' on the mic like a 12 dollar hoe / we're dressed, ready to rock at the sound of a clock," or the struggling-to-be punk cry of, "Get lost / I don't want to see you again / cus you were never my friend / fuck off and die / you motherfucking piece of shit," Denman comes up short.

Yeah, they are young and still have plenty of time to develop, but often a band's most fiery output comes early in their career. Instead, Orange seem all too willing to embrace a smooth and safe sound that is surprisingly angst free.

im beginning to think the anon comments are the band themselves.
anyone who compares osker to orange should die.

damn. is this Matt Whelihan cat jealous much? i mean most of his points are completely fabricated. the thing about orange is they are an actual band. when you go to see em play live its not just a concert, its a show. they arent looking like your dad wearing dickies shorts and a DI t-shirt.

I saw this band at fiendfest. nice dudes good energy and a love for what they do.
this reviwe was shit.

In agreement with the comment posted 2006-01-27, it's not what you know it's who you know. Shame on you Hellcat, bring us some real talent not a spoilt L.A brat who's Ma or Pa you just might happen to know.

Mr_X (January 27, 2006)

I want to say that they are alright. There are many bands id rather listen to, but about 3 songs are alright. i saw this for 58 cents on amazon so i got it. i kinda expected more....i dont know, early british punk sound based on the cover. But now that ive heard it, agree, it seems overproduced. But to the dipshits who talk about how ugly they are, jesus tapdancing christ your stupid. look at the Ramones. Especially joey. I mean, those guys are awsome, but Joey was one ugly mother fucker. also, who ever said "mo fo" shut up and go away. Dont censor yourself on a punk chat. And about how they dress, if you remember, the pistols dressed shitty. dress was never really important to making good punk rock. imean, this isnt necisarily good punk rock, its just passable. mostly i agree with the reveiw, but anyway, its worth getting for the 3 songs if you find it really cheap used. it shouldnt be difficult

Anonymous (January 25, 2006)

How did they get signed?????? I especially find it funny that they seem to go through great lengths to leave out the fact that Joe has a semi-famous father, Paul Denman. Did you know that Joe also played on a Sweetback album only because his dad hooked him up (Sweetback is Sade w/o the singer Sade). But he wouldn't dare brag on that to his punk rock fans. He wants us to be dumb in thinking that this whole "Orange" idea was some DIY project in his garage. I'll go even further and add that because Joe is a high school drop out it seems more dire that his parents have him involved in something because truly his future is quite limited. I mean honestly, if it doesn't work then what day job would he be able to secure????????? Maybe is dad will buy his way into college by making a big contrubution. Oh, yeah, I'm the one who wrote the previous e-mail solving the "mystery" of Orange being signed. I wasn't quite finished, it seems, squashing the remnants of their self-esteem!

Anonymous (January 25, 2006)

I have the answer to the million $ question. How did these guys get signed??? Well, it seems that the lead singer, Joe, is son to one Mr. Paul Spencer Denman. Who is he???? He's the bassist for Sade, of course. So what young Joe and his "mates" couldn't achieve by sheer talent, they achieved by Daddy's connections to the industry. It also helps too if your mom runs a sheeshy boutique in L.A. called Godess that serves talentless tramps like Pamela Anderson. Joe's entire family flirts with the industry so, no doubt, they would have their friends hook them up. You've heard it before, it's all in who you know and apparently they knew who to speak to at Hellcat

ok, first of all, its a pretty good album. hills of hollywood and a few other tracks provide some potential for this band. everyone who i have showed this cd to loves it. and for those of you who wont buy the cd or listen to it because you looked at the back of the cover and saw there picture need to shut the fuck up. you obviously dont know a damn thing about music if you are that quick to judge a band by the picture.

I was kind of anticipating this record, because the that song of theirs off of Give 'Em the Boot 4 was actually quite good. But the rest of the record is a bit boring. If you want Orange at their best, just listen to "No Rest For the Weekend".

That's one point for the record, and seven for that one song.

this band is beyond terrible, theyre painfully generic and Its mind bogling that they got picked up by a label...
but hey tim armstrong is the genius not me, Iam sure it will turn out to be a wise investment and they'll be selling millions

It's weird... I don't really get what all the negativism is about here. But maybe when I say I pretty much liked the F-Ups as well, most of you here will understand that I thought this music was pretty OK. As with the F-Ups review I notice that you kids still care a lot about how people look and what they wear. Well... I remember some 20 years ago when I was 16 I wore the stupidest things as well. These guys are teenagers, and I'm sure if they look at the backside of their album 10 years furtheron they also will think they look ridiculous. For now, if they like to wear these clothes I'd say "let them". This music might not be the best I've heard, but it sure as hell beats a lot of the whining emo and sophisticated song arrangements that I keep getting in my mailbox. To me, this simple gritty pop-punk sometimes comes as a welcome relieve. Maybe it's because I'm the same age as Tim Armstrong, or maybe I'm just not made for reviewing music for the real punks, but I listened all through this album which I can't say for a lot of albums lately. I just have the feeling that I'm losing track with a lot of the visitors of this site. I'll probably lose all my credits when I tell you I'm not too much into the new Propagandhi album either.

Haha, oh my this review is funny. I love reviews because NO ONE CARES what reviews like that douche has to say cus its his lame ass opion! cant get enough of em. IF anything u need a review urself. So here it is...

You cant do your job right, the singer is british, They are the future. When this band sells a million who will be laughing then?

IM NOT ONE TO make fun of other people. But honesly that was just such a petty review.

Orange are amazing. Young and a total inspiration to the world. Joe is an amazing song writter and it can only get better. What were you doing at 17 that was so speacial? ... exactly. Well Orange are working their ass's off and living the dream. i say good on em and good luck. They deserve it and they will ride the snake to success. Orange and hellcat 4 life. Tim is a smart man.

Anonymous (October 3, 2005)

funny how although this band is apparently "the worst on hellcat", they hold everyones attention in the palms of thier young hands.

funny how the pistols were despised by almost all of Britian and yet had a number one single.

quite ironic.

and whoever wrote this review obviously has a personal agenda towards orange because most of the stuff said here is 100 percent bullshit.

fuck reviews, go listen to the songs for yourself.

I love this album!. It dosnt deserve such a crappy review. It has a positive message for anyone who wants to hear it.

"When life gives you shit make a garden out of it"

"Credit cards, expensive cars, beggars in the street.
Glitter painted with some pain from your plastic surgery"

I love those lines. They are kind of serious and sad but he makes it seem funny. The singer has a kind of strange take on life, I agree with the guy/girl who said the reviewer didnt get it. Its a great album

Anonymous (September 29, 2005)

"Those lyrics are supposed to be irreverent and poke fun at people who take themselves too seriosly"

isn't this always the argument when a band has no talent and can't come up with a lyrically sound attempt at good music. when someone says "the lyrics suck" some A-hole comes out with the above comment making it look like the band tried to suck on purpose and that everyone is simply missing the joke.

punkrocker4life (September 29, 2005)

Yeah it was kinda strange, but I do like this band. Great songs

inanechild (September 29, 2005)

Anyone else find it funny that all those positive comments came in within 10-15 (in one case only 2) minutes of each other?

I can only assume one of these kids is a relative of one of Warner's employees. There's no other explanation. Even if Tim was hellbent on cash, why would he sign a bunch of ugly kids playing mediocre pop-punk? The money's in pretty boys playing emo!

And if he signed them based on "talent"...well, maybe he's been drinking again...

What where you doin when you were 17 ?........dreaming of being in a band signed to a cool label with a killer album out? Well Orange arnt dreaming about it they are out there doing it.

they only did half. a major half to be sure, but there is no "killer" album in sight

Now I'm going to put off trashing this band because honestly I've never heard a single song they ever made. I will note, however, that there ad banner makes them look like Cartman in the NAMBLA episode,
In addition at the local Rasputin Records, if you cruise through the used punk section and check under "O", they already have roughly a dozen CD's from these guys.
Not like it matters in 10 years they'll have gotten more women than everyone on this board combined, myself included (and you know it's true).

Dear Orange,

I don't want to tell you how to do things, but you should get a case that's strong enough to hold itself together without using safety pins.

Oh wait, I get it. Punk.

Remember when we were 14 and I had just gotten my ear pierced and then I asked you to help me take out the silver stud and replace it with a safety pin? Then you took out the stud and tried to put the pin in my ear, but it wouldn't go in, and it started to bleed a little bit when you tried to force it.

Never force it.

That's a lesson I'll never forget, and I've got a pretty bad memory. But elephantgs have a pretty good memory. I knew a girl once whose t-shirt said "Remember, when I grow up I want to go to the London School of Economics." Then there was a picture of an elephant on the shirt.

No, London, France. Silly.

Anyhow, I've since gotten my ear pierced again. Are you free this weekend?

Later,
Superdude

I clicked on the banner promoting Orange on this site last week because I had never heard of them. I couldn't believe how ridiculous they looked, especially the Dee Snider wannabe. I ended up on their website and it seems quite apparent this band is a marketing tool of some kind. Hell, their bio is in multiple chapters, pretty much chronicling them from the time they met, complete with pictures. It was a train wreck, I couldn't stop reading that shit.

play spot the hellcat records patches in the liner note photos. Did the whole band get issued them?
And why wear them in photos for the record put out by hellcat, overkill?

The best part of this record is the one press photo in the CD case or booklet where if you look carefully at the center band member who is sitting down, his hands look like they both have extended middle fingers, but his hands are so low to his knees, and inbetween being relaxed and rigid, that it looks like he was trying to tell you to fuck off, and just got really lazy about it.

Which really is a metaphor for the whole record, and this whole band.

If you happen to pass by this CD in a store of some sort (because I'm hoping/assuming anyone reading this doesn't actually have it in their personal possession), take a look at the back of the case. These kids look soo ridiculous.

i honestly cannot even fathom how this was released. i know everyone else is saying that it's a bad signing and all, but i mean it when i say I CANNOT UNDERSTAND FOR THE LIFE OF ME HOW THE FUCK ANYONE WOULD PUT THIS RECORD OUT.

i mean it when i say i will never buy another hellcat release ever. i don't care who they might sign, or how good the album is. a mesage needs to be sent. we're sick of your shit, hellcat. this is unforgivable.

The song on Give Em the Boot was good, I guess, but I didn't know it was a bunch of make-up wearing 15-year olds. This is just stupid.

What, the F-Ups weren't bad enough?

What do you expect? Hellcat hasn't had an great original release since F-Minus's "Wake Up Screaming"...now that it looks like they've jumped from this burning ship, Hellcat is truely doomed. Maybe Tim should just give in to what he's been hinting at for years and start signing mainstream acts....it's not like he has any integrity left.

‚??From the E to the O to the stereo / pimpin‚?? on the mic like a 12 dollar hoe / we‚??re dressed, ready to rock at the sound of a clock,‚?Ě

Wow.

Hahahahah, this band sucks. Would've made sense if Tim signed them in 1997 when we knew he was still drinking, but this leads you to believe...
