I like this, but I think I would like it more sans the quasi-pedo artwork. (The cover has a painting of a twelve-year-old topless mermaid wearing sock puppets on her hands. The back cover has two tweens in shirts and underwear wearing sock puppets on their hands engaged in an apathetic high five or one-handed patty cake. At least none of it looks realistic.) TMD have good poppy melodies, a bit of a Sub Pop vs. Lookout! punk feel, and traces of early ‘90s alterna rock with co-ed vocals (though primarily female lead). The catchy sounds and sock puppets are helping me get beyond the seemingly pedo nature of the artwork.
