SIXER: Beautiful Trash: CD

May 27, 2009

I heard this band on the last TKO Punch Drunk comp, so I vaguely knew what to expect. They have ex-Ann Beretta guys in their lineup and what we have here is not too far off. Sixer plays mid-tempo punk with emphasis on rock. Unfortunately, I can’t say that I liked this CD. The songs have a lack of hooks, making them unmemorable. They also seem to bypass catchiness for an almost underlying rock sound. There are a few of the songs that hit the mark, most notably “Get Well Card,” but overall it leaves me uninterested. This CD kind of reminds me of a second rate version of The Dragons. Nothing terrible, but nothing spectacular either. I’ll pass. –Mike Dunn
