    I guess i need the UK version. They must have cut some good songs... The only two I like are: Zombie and Whats your damage. I really loved the 1st album.

    Be Your Own Pet comes out with a second CD and in contrast to the building singles that they released between their debut album and this most recent album, Get Awkward, all Be Your Own Pet does in this album is pervert their original score of 90 on their first album. The subject matter feels more immature and the recording quality drops exponentially.

The subject matter feels more immature and the recording quality drops exponentially. While Be Your Own Pet is an amazing band with large amounts of energy, their energy has been channeled into something more like an album a 10 year old would make about "Not wanting to grow up" and zombies. It's listenable though. Expand

    There is a breadth of influence throughout, even if the energy level rarely falls below absurdly scorching and the sonic approach remains a fuzzy haze. [Apr 2008, p.150]
  2. Get Awkward is mostly more of the same but with more hooks, more wit, and a hell of a lot more emotion.

    So even though the songs have great live potential and are manufactured with poppy punk precision, the end product doesn't quite fit the equation. [Winter 2008, p.95]
