SHOOT ‘EM DOWN: Self-Titled: 7″

Aaaahh! The song “No Complaints” is awesome! I haven’t heard this sound since the first Goo Goo Dolls record. This is a very high compliment from me, even though people who don’t have any knowledge of early Goo Goo Dolls are now thinking I am a complete moron. You really have to trust me and give it a listen sometime. It’s called Jed. It rocks. I promise. As does the first song on the B-Side of this record. The sad part is that they totally ruin it by following up / finishing the record with some horrible attempt at hip hop. Ouch. This is not a cool thing to do. The first side of the record is more straight forward southern bar rock with a punk beat at times. Catchy, but entirely too overplayed here in the Northwest for my tastes. I do like the vocals a lot though. There was no insert for this 7”, so this is all I can tell you.
