WHAT REMAINS: Destroys All Monsters: CD

I wanted to like this band as soon as I read the track list, because their song, “The Truth Is Never Flattery, Dr. Adams,” is a reference to This Island Earth, the classic ‘50s sci-fi flick skewered in the MST3K movie. From that note, I was expecting something more goofy, but What Remains still did not disappoint. Their brand of emo-inflected indie-flavored punk may not be the most creative, but, consarnit, sometimes you just want to hear something that’s good and enjoyable without trying to start a damned revolution.
