Album Review
Reviewed 2003-05-04 
Terrific CD from Sacramento-based punk rock/pop band. Male vocals, guitar, bass, drums. Most tracks med-fast, and some have a spooky, creepy, spy feel. Simple lyrics, and fun, energetic straightforward music with few gimmicks. FCC on tracks 5,6,7. Recommend 1,8,9,12,13.
1 – uptempo, drum flurry at end
2 – big beat, garagey
3 – simple beat, repeating gritty guitar
4 – simple
5 – FCC 4x “fucking”
6 – FCC 3x “fucking”
7 – FCC “shit” at 2:00 rem., “fucking” at 0:20 rem.
8 – creepy spy feel in instrumental parts, jumpy and choppy guitar and vocals
9 – more spy feel, jumpy guitar and solo
10 – frenetic hopping guitar after slightly bluesy intro
11 – catchy chorus, squealy guitar solo
12 – med, creepy intro, more steady and paced, relatively quiet interlude near end
13 – big guitar and drum intro, good beat, cool choppy guitar solo
