BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME: Start from Skratch: CD

I’m going to cut to the chase. I don’t even know if I can disgrace any cereal by comparing it to this band. The very act of cereal comparison implies a connection between the best food of all time and the band in question. I mean, even a disgusting cereal is still cereal! But this? I can’t handle it! There shall be no comparison! The press release informs us that, “Better Luck Next Time has made their mark in the DIY scene, shooting them onto the Top 10 pop punk charts on MySpace.com daily.” And check this out from their website: “Hot Topic is now carrying Third Time’s a Charm at select Southern California stores for an unbelievably low price of $4.99! The more albums we can push out of those locations means the more other stores will pick it up!” Oh yeah, this sounds like, I dunno, Blink-182 or whatever sound brain cells make when they begin to die.
