MarkL.Mar 27, 2008This is a crappy, Broken Boy Soldier is thousands better.
MichaelS.Mar 28, 2008I found BBS cheesy but enjoyable. I find this one just cheesy. Really hokey blend of boring rock styles that get old before the riffs even end. Innovative songwriting almost completely thrown out the window in favor of a tossed salad of Americana rock I guess they are hoping will sound like something new. It doesn't.

The result is neither refined nor especially modern, but it still evokes the thrill of playing hooky on a Friday afternoon.
A notable progression from the foursome, and plenty of huge riffs to enjoy at the summer festivals.
while one can easily imagine smoke machines spurting during many of the album's 13 other tracks, there is no irony in the mix. Just fun.
