PRETTY WHORES: Teens of USA: CD

Admittedly, upon looking at this and seeing the name, I assumed I’d hate it (judging from the name and packaging, figuring it was some Warped Tour “I hate my girlfriend, ergo all girls” emo/punk pop). But after listening to it, it kind of sounds like a pop punk band trying to sound like The Hives. It’s not bad, though if they tried to sound like Henry Fiat’s Open Sore, then they’d really be on to something.
