Amazing Transparent Man

The Measure Of All Things (2000)


What do you say about a band that sounds like Blink-182, but have been around since before Blink was big? Amazing Transparent Man, or ATM for short, has been together for about 3 years now [I think], and while they have a tendency to sound like the whole goofy pop-punk sound that Blink has popularized in recent times, they've been doing it for a while. This is by far the strongest outing for this Dekalb, IL three-piece. They plow through 8 songs in a little over 20 minutes, and it makes you wonder where the time went. They keep the listener attentive and energized the whole time. Being produced by Mass Giorgini doesn't hurt, as their vocals [both lead and backing] sound absolutely incredible. They also cover the Smoking Popes and Cyndi Lauper and do respectable jobs with each one. If you're looking to get into a new pop-punk band that writes great songs about girls and wears little pink shorts at most of their shows, give ATM a listen.
