BREAK, THE/LET IT BURN: Split: CD

The Break: Decent enough poppy punk rock, although the emo flourishes of the second track made my flesh crawl. Let It Burn: I really liked the music here, rife with just the right balance of pop hooks and hardcore attack, but that slight whine in the singer’s voice and his monotone delivery just grated like nails on a blackboard. A little more vocal melodicism and I would’ve been all over myself praising these muthafuckas.
