Goat Bell: This band must be awesome live. I can’t think of any other explanation for why somebody would release this. I mean, there are a lot of bands that I say suck. Usually, this boils down to it being my opinion. But when I say that Goat Bell sucks, I am stating this as an objective fact. Pool Party: They sound so familiar that I thought I might be able to yell the lyrics out while I was listening to ‘em to the first time around. Can’t put my finger on it. Definite ‘90s influence. It’s all right, but the raspy vocals seem really forced. It sounds like something that coulda been on Go Kart vs. the Corporate Giant or some similar comp or sampler.
