Well, after about 2 years of looking, I finally had my local overpriced music store order this album.

First of all, why is it that the good, talented bands with substance break up, and the mediocre, borderline moronic bands sign giant mega-deals and get their songs played on video games? Does anyone know?

Pivit completely rocks. Very fast southern cali punk with a hint of pop thrown in the mix. All their songs are catchy, but maintain an edge. The only downside to this album is that the drums, especially the hi-hats, seem to overpower even the guitars. I found that if you turn the bass down on your stereo it helps a little. The songs are good enough that it's hard to really notice.

I know the So-Cal sound can grow tiresome at times, but trust me, Pivit is a standout. Too bad they've all but dissappeared from the punk scene. They probably could have been a pretty popular band right about now.
