FULL MINUTE OF MERCURY: Alive Again: CD

Egads, was this bad. Bubble gum pop, Maiden-influenced metal (hence the cheesy, has-to-be-a-joke cover art), and socially conscious pop punk Osterized for public consumption, although I would be hard pressed to figure who, outside of the hordes of who think Ashlee and Avril are the embodiment of all things punk, would bother to listen to, let alone buy something like this. Then again, one man’s crap is another’s “breakout hit,” I guess.
