MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK: I Am the Movie: CD

I’m completely buffaloed. Lots of minuses to overcome. 1.) Unrestricted Moog used in a non-new wave type way. 2.) Anthropomorphism as a lyrical crutch. Emo does this a lot, for some reason – gives inanimate objects human feeling. “Sand is said to be sad.” Please, make some sort of sense. Sand gets wet. It gets dry. It doesn’t fucking cry. 3.) Unrestricted sicky sweet backup vocals. 4.) The lead vocalist sounds like he could be in, say, a “new, extreme” Partridge Family. 5.) Name dropping the television show Will and Grace is a good idea, how? Hello, eject button, my trusted friend.
