USELESS ID: The Lost Broken Bones: CD

Mid-’90s style pop punk in the vein of No Use For A Name. Their claim to fame is that they’re the biggest punk band to break in Israel, which, admittedly, is an interesting detail. Lyrics are introspective and there’s a gloomy tone . My problem with the record is that it straddles the line between decent melodic punk and that bland corporate emo sound that I really can’t stand. I think they’re good at what they do, but maybe I’m just a little too old for this style of punk.
