Charly Bliss channels early Weezer and seems to have found its home in quick riffs and tasty distortion. There is a chance that Eva Hendrick’s vocals will push some away as they can get nasally as she beautifully squeals out lyrics and high pitched yelps of excitement, but I dig it. The overall energy makes me want to pop-punk jump all over the place. I’m loving it more and more with every listen. Tracks that stand out are “Percolator”, “Black Hole”, and “DQ”.… Expand

The ultra-high-pitched vocals, weird lyrics, and screaming rock music sounded annoying and very off-putting at first. Now, it's grown on me a little, but I still don't really like it. The lyrics are problematic for their randomness and sheer ridiculousness on a few songs. "Black Hole" - "toe in the corn-hole, bleeding out in a snow cone" - and "DQ" - "I peed the trampoline" - turn me off with their strange, random, off-putting lyrics.
I don't love the lead singer's surprising, original voice, but I can't deny that it gives Guppy a bit of charm.
As for the music; it works. It's head-banging, get-hyped rock music that sounds pretty good. The problem with the production on this album is that every song sounds nearly identical; it needs some musical diversity and variety.
Guppy is a very overrated power-pop album. When all is said and done, it does sound good, but the offbeat, wacky lyrics and repetitive music deep me from calling it great or even all that good. It's serviceable; it works. It's not a masterpiece.
