CANDY: Self-Titled: CDEP

Jul 25, 2007

There was something missing here. This is one of those strange moments when a band has everything in place, and all of the appropriate elements are there, and sounds like nothing more than that. The best records are those in which five plus five adds up to twenty, the sum turning out much larger than what the various parts should add up to. On this record, five plus five equals ten. Reminds me of Anti-Flag, but not as good.
