Kind of surprised that this is on a CD-R. It sounds like the band either spent some money on recording or they have a real good home recording system. But the drum sounds lead me to believe that they went into a real studio, so spending the grand to get five hundred CDs wouldn't be a stretch. It's average, mid-tempo punk rock with what sounds like average lyrics that most high school kids or new bands write about. Nothing too thought provoking. The recording and production values are what sets this apart. If this was a crappy four-track, I would have thrown this thing away in a heartbeat and saved the case.
