Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-10-03 
Kick-ass melding of punk, hardcore, psyche and rock. Nicely recorded w/ overdrive and general noisiness that makes it believable and raw. Noise leads, guitar/bass/drums recipe w/ good male vocs that don’t fall into any clichés associated w/ the above listed genres. Great rockin stuff, heavy in all the right places. For fans of Minutemen, Nebula, Die Kreuzen, Dream Syndicate, Neptune.

1) upbeat driving near-gallop balls-out rocker, overdriven, bass heavy
2) 2/4 fast hardcore punk feel
3) upbeat punk, great noise lead
4) folky acoustic guitar in intro to this different one, a retro psyche rock flare, early 80’s LA scene, cool
5) quieter production, upbeat D. Boone’ish
6) ripping – like a bomb going off driving rock
7) fun rockin, upbeat shifts 2/4 punk gallop
8) upbeat old school rockin punk
9) jangly upbeat
10) upbeat, cleaner guitar
11) pounding near tribal drums, stiff swingy feel
12) synth tone and dark near goth spooky tone separates this one from the rest
13) 2/4 hardcore punk feel, but not too distorted
14) big guitar intro to “standard” punk feel, great though
15) upbeat w/ great guit lead
16) cleaner production, rockin
17) dirgey start, then upbeat, irreverent feel
18) cleaner guitar, strange
19) driving upbeat punk
