Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-07-15 
“Horror punk”: punk’ish tone, guitars and urgent rhythms juxtaposed with carnival organ and desperate decipherable vocals. Good lyrics, if dark (what would you expect?). Play with Phantom Limbs, Subtonix or even go way back to Christian Death and 45 Grave, Beelzebub Youth. Male vocs, dominant organ. Pounding drums. Searing guitars. Lyrics about bad dreams of relationships gone wrong. What more do you want? Great shit.

1) driving punky with carnival organ, desperate screamed vocs
2) more heavy, pounding, with desperate sad love/life lyrics
3) bouncy beat, upbeat punky with organ that borders on new wave but still horror punk overall
4) swingy beat
5) FCC (quick “shit”) driving and upbeat
6) big triplet back and forth swing, and deep and dark and mean
7) heaviness, upbeat and epic
8) big doomy epic intro to upbeat driving song, great love gone wrong lyrics
9-10) driving, straight up stuff, spooky creepy horror film lyrics
11) slow dance, ¾ doomy arpeggio, epic with lyrics about sleeping next to your urn and gripping your ashes…. Listen while falling asleep in your coffin/bed
12) quiet fade-in with simple spooky organ line, then crashes into epic loudness “its midnight under the midnight sun”, good stuff with long ritardando
13) upbeat slight swing/gallop to this mostly driving one with backup vocs
