"I initially bought "these are not fall colors" because some guy at a record store was playing it and it sounded wonderful to my ears. This being Lync's only other release on K records, I had to buy it. "Pennies to Save" is a perfect pop song and probably, the least loud song. So, if you fear easily of loud music, go to this song first, relax as it plays and then, start the CD over. I give this cd my highest endorsement. Musically, this cd is much poppier than their other. The vocals are half screamed, half sung but done, very well. There also seems to be some sonic resonance in the vocals. Very nice touch. The style of the music is basic spare garage pop punk. There are a few moments of pure pop but the production and the influence is clearly punk. I have always enjoyed bands like Superchunk, Jawbreaker, and Built to Spill AND Lync fits into this category very nicely. There's certainly an urgency to their delivery. "Pegeons" is an epic song of the soft/loud-fast variety. The song writer for this band has strong pop leanings but the delivery clobbers any of the typical sacharine sounding possibilities."
