INTERNATIONAL BUSINESSMEN: The Formula: CD

Mar 06, 2007

The problem with this is that it is trying to go too many directions at once. It starts out with post-grunge, pre-emo angst. Not my cup o’ tea, but well played. Fine. The next thing I know, they’re on a beeline to Weezerville. Blah. Here comes another angst attack, but this time it is screeching! Whew, that was close. Good thing they’re aping Alkaline Trio on the next song. I think it’s great to have different influences, but to skip through them at such a rapid rate on one record is foolish and makes for a bad listening experience.
