Most readers on this site already know the deal with Some Girls: Ex-members of highly influential screamo/hardcore bands form "supergroup" and tear ass through minute-long songs with stellar easiness and complexity that is unrivaled by its peers. For the few who are new to Some Girls, pick up the members' former and current bands' (American Nightmare / Give Up the Ghost, the Locust, the Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower) albums and play them all at the same time. The result is total dischord, chaos, and noise...but every once in a while, every song will come together to make an intense and brutal progression. That is what Some Girls is.

Keeping along the same style and brevity as their previous albums (All My Friends Are Going Death, The DNA Will Have Its Say), Heaven's Pregnant Teens dwells on complexity for the most part ("Warm Milk," "Skull's Old Girlfriends") with coinciding moments of repetitious downstrokes ("Beautiful Rune," "You'll Be Happier..."). Anyone who enjoyed their previous releases will be pleased to know there is nothing "new" on this release, a good sign when the band's sound is so unique. The only noticeable difference on this album is Wes's screaming vocals are sometimes toned down to an almost intelligible level.

Some Girls is definitely an acquired taste for most listeners. If you grew up with great screamo and hardcore, you'll most likely dig this latest record. But it also serves as a great starting point for anyone looking to diversify their genres. Great album and a big thumbs up for the cover of PiL's "Religion II."

I can't say enough about this band. Fucking great.

TheWise (March 1, 2006)

Oh, and as for that dick below me, I don't listen to Hawthorne Heights. You want a real band, listen to Bad Religion.
Idiot.

TheWise (March 1, 2006)

Some girls are fucking shit. So awful.
Epitaph really needs to sign a good band. It pains me to say that, but they have not been exactly on the money with their recent signings.

why does this band get so much shit on here? is it cause its epitaph and its cool for 12 year olds to hate epitaph now?

Anonymous (February 5, 2006)

justin's bass is awesome. it's clear. you could see his crotch while he jammed. also.. their closing song "deathface" was probably the most awesome jam session i've heard since i saw the mars volta.

and the drummer of daughters played an additional drum set during that song as well. if you haven't seen them live, you should. and i don't believe they're ever touring again so yea.

Looks like Epitaph will sign anyone.

Epitaph sucks.

Where's my money bitch?

Honestly, what does this band have to do with the Daughters besides the fact that they both have fem names?

psychoos231 (February 4, 2006)

Not my cup of tea.

heartfailure (February 4, 2006)

they're like a bad Daughters, but still pretty good. The DNA Will Have Its Say is a great album. I haven't even heard this one though, so score is for the band.

It just goes to show, you really can't polish a TURD!

Godfather (February 4, 2006)

this score is for will's use of the word "flacid" to describe music

With American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost, his vocals and lyrics were more out of desperation. On Some Girls, his vocals and lyrics are more sarcastic and sort of "I don't give a fuck".

true story.
great observation.

no care ever.

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

I always wondered when a punk band would step up and cover one of PiL's good songs. The lyrics are so great, but music-wise, the post-Levene/Wobble period is flaccid.

Russe11 (February 3, 2006)

Great album.

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

sounds like a bazillion bands from the 90s. interesting at moments but overall pretty familiar.

and vaguely pretentious. where's weston when you need them?

i would prefer to see some hot chicks screamin but wat the heck..lets listen to this mate!

SilentStorms (February 3, 2006)

It's true, I am funny.

i tried to listen to it ..but i cant ..maybe its just cause its not my style...or then it realy suck..
im not very happy with the latests releases of epitaph...but w.e

etwiels88 (February 3, 2006)

Neat album. Live show in Philly the past week was awfullllll though.

benz (February 3, 2006)

A lot of people were complaining that Wes seems to "talk" more in Some Girls than scream. My friend came up with a good rationale, I think:

With American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost, his vocals and lyrics were more out of desperation. On Some Girls, his vocals and lyrics are more sarcastic and sort of "I don't give a fuck".

stevejonestherealbones (February 3, 2006)

as comic book guy would say.....worst album everrr!

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

maybe you should mention that rob (guitar) was in motherfucking UNBROKEN, a band vastly superior to any of the other band members' ex/present bands. all you kids should go pick up "life.love.regret" by unbroken and recieve a piece of hardcore history.

i liked the first record, but at some point i realized all their shit sounds the same and so another album of it is kind of unecessary. also i was very dissapointed by them the two times i saw them live.

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

Same old shit in a new wrapper.

sirens (February 3, 2006)

I have my friends are going death but I never listen to it. I find this stuff kinda bland. I think it's the singer.


haha, youre funny.

The title reminds me of Angel Hair's "pregnent with the senior class" which is also a great title.

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

I thought i sounded a little different from the eps they put out, sounds (dare i say it) a little more organised.

still fucking rocks the niven though.

istapledmyfoot (February 3, 2006)

Complex? Really? It alway seemed like the aforementioned bands these dudes come from are more interesting. This stuff is ok, but a little style over substance for my tastes.

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

I imagine they've probably got enough songs now to be able to play for long enough to make it worth your money. They've done, what, three albums in two years?

TheOneTrueBill (February 3, 2006)

Give me some info on how the show was, how long they played for. I plunked donw twelve bucks to see them next week so I'm hoping for at least a half an hour set.

NYHCHasNothingOnMe (February 3, 2006)

i just saw these guys tonight...shit was INTENSE...great band

TheOneTrueBill (February 3, 2006)

I can't believe you didn't mention the fact that "Deathface" goes on for nine minutes despite the fact it's only one chord! Without that, the album is 12 songs in aproximately 14 minutes

the_other_scott (February 3, 2006)

its funny. i always used the term "screamo" in place of "bad"

these guys are ok. good for a listen or two but then it gets kind of old

Anonymous (February 3, 2006)

This album is Great. I Have not stopped listening to it since i Got and their old stuff never gets old either. Truly a Great Band.
