Have you ever seen a picture of these guys? I want to punch them all in the face. All of them. Check them out over at their website and get ready to go and buy some boxing gloves.

That aside, when it comes to synth-driven emo pop, these guys are near the top of the pile. It's too bad that said pile is largely a steaming pile of shit and only being near the top leaves you with a mouth full of turd. Their press sheet says that the band effectively captures everything about the last two decades of pop music -- and I believe they do. Unfortunately, not every pop album released in the last 20 years was Thriller. Remember Mitsou? I didn't think so.

At its better moments, the band's self-titled debut is a lot of fun to dance around to in your underwear. At its worst moments it is a shitty, shitty version of Weezer...at their worst.

Worst review ever? I say yes.

I want them to bleed to death. I want them to bleed over grass, so when their blood infects the soil I can step on that grass as well until it dies out.

theres a lot that I hate about this band, but "keep it comin" is so catchy and not THAT bad for what it is.anything else ive heard from them is terrible though.

Funny review, i enjoyed it. But come on. I have no clue what they sound like after reading this. A shitty version of Weezer? That is the only insight you have into their music? I expect more from a "staff" writer.

welcome to the love arcade...do you want to fiddle with my joystick

and by "fiddle with" i mean suck...and by "joystick" i mean "penis"
just, y'know, clarifying my point for the retarded kids

That seductive "you wanna fuck me?" look that the guy in the green hoody (on the website) is giving is horribly hilarious.

Holy shit, that first paragraph made me laugh out loud because I felt the same way when I saw Thunderbirds Are Now.

the cover of the record is a guy making sure his faux-hawk is intact hahaha

not just any guy but a teen angel!

yeah if that cover doesn't proclaim "hey we are douche bags that lack any substance" I don't know what does.

Best review ever. I agree with Archangel, who is now my arch-nemesis.

It is rock pop music. It sounds like bad weezer. How much more description do you kids need???

shot_in_the_dark (December 15, 2006)

wow i botched that spelling of weezer. oh well.

shot_in_the_dark (December 15, 2006)

you can't elaborate just a bit as to what they sound like? or is it really just not worth describing? i personally hate weaser, so if its a shitty version of weaser then its probably not worth the time.

Score is for the review and fuck all the haters who want to give you shit because of it.
