DIESELBOY/DIVIT: Double Letter Score: split CD

Mar 19, 2002

Good Christ! A cover of “Livin’La Vida Loca?” Is the apocalypse near? Should I even listen to this? What were they thinking? After I took a couple deep breaths and a few beers, I popped this in (being the dedicated and objective reviewer I am [aka: drunken fool]). Typical pop rock here. Nothing too interesting. The music just kinda maintains the same rhythm and never tries to change it up. This makes for a boring listen. The lyrics are fairly dull too. Diesel Boy was okay when they first started out. They had a little wit to them and had some catchy songs, but now they sound like they are just going through the motions. Not to mention starving for material. Ricky Martin?! Divit sounds pretty much like Diesel Boy. Pop this in and you won’t notice the band change. I haven’t heard Divit before this but if you like your punk very poppy, check out Diesel Boy’s Cock Rock CD. It’s a bit more palatable.
