  1. Beyond the Neighbourhood is the sonic equivalent of a beautiful coffin.
  2. Mired in the generic neo-new-wave and self-consciously emotive yawn of contemporary fashion indie rock, Athlete's unimaginative music matches up nicely with the shallow lyrics.

    I love this band. I put the album "I Love You" and the EP "I'm Sorry" on repeat, the day I downloaded the tracks. It made for a very chillaxI love this band. I put the album "I Love You" and the EP "I'm Sorry" on repeat, the day I downloaded the tracks. It made for a very chillax afternoon. I love the fusion of musical styles. They remind me of California. I'm feelin' every track like I did when I first heard Sublime, not to compare the bands, only the feeling I get when I listen to them. I like it, I like it a lot. I way the guitar sings is so sexy and moody, and the lead singers voice is sexy and moody as well. All I can tell you is play their music, have a drink, soak up some sun and kick back with some friends. This band feels good to me even though their kind of dark. But then again so am I.
