TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET: Warning Device: CD

It’s been a good while since I have heard a Ramones-like band that actually sounded good to these ears. This band ripped right out with a catchy song and kept me at attention as song after song played. I guess I’ve been listening to way too much grind/crust/thrash/metal lately. The songs have hooks and the melody melts me like butter on hot popcorn. I catch myself humming instantly. Two singers who sound unique from one another but compliment each other well. Nice and bright guitar tones which brings up the fun factor. Punchy bass and drums bring on a bouncy energy that completes the music. I’m truly surprised that I like this. But those surprises are the best when you discover something that you like.
