This is my least favorite kind of review to write. A band sends in their CD, which I’m sure cost a few hundred dollars to make, and even with every correct choice in terms of aesthetic and sound, the actual content is just not up to quality. Musically, this CD reminds me a lot of Hüsker Dü. It has a great vibe and energy, but the songwriting is rather unremarkable. I really want this band to be good and I think that after another record or two they might get there, but it’s too early in their career. I am genuinely interested to see how they grow. Grade: C+.
