CRY, THE: Self-titled: CD

Punky power pop with occasional appearances of the obligatory (and too often neglected) twelve-string twanger, and no shortage of tunes about love, love lost, love rebuked, and so on. Tunes are sugary without being too saccharine, and are criminally catchy. Fans of the Exploding Hearts would do well to pick this up.
