TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET: Freak Out!: CD

Wow, this CD is like listening to two different bands. One rocks a humorous Hanson Brothers vibe complete with clever—bordering on hilarious—lyrics and the other leans towards a more pop than punk sound that I couldn’t get into. I imagine that there are two distinct songwriters at work here, as the songs bounce back and forth between the two styles. It is all done well though, I would just personally prefer more of the clever, funny stuff and less of the poppy love songs.
