ERGS, THE: The Ben Kweller EP: CD

This is the cutest record I’ve heard in long time, and I like it. It’s so sweet, but it’s done so well. It’s poppy and they sing about not getting the girl, about having to kill the girl’s boyfriend, about having a pool party to look at the girl they like. The only negative thing I have to say is about the last track. There’s thirty seconds of feedback, the one minute song, a hidden track of a Randy Newman parody, then a NKOTB parody (the “girl, you’re wicked awesome” song.) It’s just too much for me. Cut all that crap out and I love the album.
