LOVE SONGS, THE: Oh, the Places You’ll Go Wrong: CD

The Love Songs mix a few genres here: pop punk, flamenco, a touch of bluegrass, a touch of prog rock, and twenty seconds of A Perfect Circle to kick off track seven (“D”). I think this is why I have incredibly mixed reactions when faced with this record. I have felt different each time: I liked it the first time, I loathed it the second time, I accepted it the third time. Just about every other song has a Descendents flair; the rest are different and interesting for their own reasons. –Nicole X (1986’d)
