BODIES, THE: Addicted to You: LP

Jul 25, 2002

I was excited about getting this, because I know that some of my Razorcake cohorts love this band. I hate to say this, but I was really disappointed. For some reason, I expected these guys to sound tougher. While I wouldn’t call this pop punk, it’s definitely too poppy for my tastes. The singer’s voice doesn’t have a hint of rasp in it, which is usually the element that can save a band like this for me. The music never strives for more than the basic three-chords-and-an-attitude vibe, except there’s no attitude. This isn’t horrible, but it just lacks power and spark. To make matters worse, there is no lyric sheet and no information about the band or label.
