BASEMENT APARTMENTS, THE: Self-titled: CD

Jul 03, 2009

I like the artwork on the CD sleeve of a screen-printed half-eaten hotdog and sandwich. Who wouldn’t? The songs aren’t catchy and don’t have much of a hook. Riffs are repetitive. It seems like they took the easy way out with finding a sweet riff and sticking to it through the entire song. I can’t really take listening to this. It’s actually kind of stressing me out. But wait, there’s the song “Teen Planet” that actually does have a hook and some back up vocals that seem like it has some good construction to the song. This one is okay on my ears, but I don’t think I’ll be adding it onto my playlist anytime soon.
