  1. Be Your Own Pet attacks with enthusiasm, and everything here rocks sufficently, although some remedial songwriting classes may be required before they make the move to sports arenas.

    For the most part, the band's jagged guitars and bludgeoning backbeats play by the punk rulebook. [Jul 2006, p.186]

    Their music lacks any trace of sophistication or nuance. [Apr 2006, p.112]
  4. The concept is fun, and sometimes they strike pop gold... But the underlying premise, which is that this racket is some badge of teenage authenticity, is self-limiting.
