Within the first five seconds of the start of this album, I literally hung my head and cradled it in my hands. This is horribly bland rock music that seems to have tricked alternative music to join up with it. That being said, I wish there was a way we could just come up with a category at Razorcake that when the people read that an album was in that category they would know it was just really, really horrible. The problem is that some things I like Donofthedead may hate and Ben Snakepit may only halfway enjoy. So it’s all still too subjective. However, I think it’s safe to say that everyone on the staff would hate this. The opening line in their bio states, “‘Rock music that you want to hear. That is how the band Martians See Red describes itself and that is really all that needs to be said.” Press companies, for the love of Father Christmas, look at your client and then look at the type of music that’s covered in the zine you’re sending the album to. Save yourself some fucking money.
