Lost Control is based in classic American punk. The band flip between the electric buzzsaw of Ramones and the sharper riffage of classic LA punk a la the Germs and the Weirdoes. Their mentor, Kepi Ghoulie, has his influence heard on tracks like "How are You Doing?" in which the girls blast out a minute-long bopper that is a loving tribute to '50s rock and the bubble gum side of Joey R.

I've found a lot of disjoint and musical disconnection with quite a few pop-punk records lately, but just like Hostage Calm and The Story So Far, Stickup Kid maintain a pace that adds flavor, and at times, flashiness to their sound.
