Synopsis

Amazon.com
The High Speed Scene has connections. Signed to the Neptunes' Star Trak label, regular headliners at trendy Silver Lake club Spaceland, and proud owners of a MySpace friends page that boasts countless endorsements from models and strippers, the shaggy-haired Los Angeles trio seems custom made for the hedonistic lifestyle that ripples through songs from its self-titled debut like "For The Kids" and "In The Know." This is power-pop, plain and simple, running the gamut of the snarling punk of Material Issue to the melodic twists of Jellyfish. And while it never sounds particularly original or inspired, it is a lot of fun. Besides, imagine what it will sound like on the catwalk at the next Tommy Hilfiger show. -- Aidin Vaziri

Perfection In The Cortex Of Pop-Rock
The.AL | 03/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a huge fan of this band for 2 years, ever since "F**k n' Spend". I loved all the previously released material from the EP, I heard the clips of the new material on iTunes, the day of the album's release, and I originally was disappointed, but I finally got around to getting the CD yesterday, and the new material is fantastic, just as good as the old stuff, "Last Chance" [a new song], is the best track on the album, and simply pop-rock at its finest. The rest of the album a fantastic, a must-buy for anyone who loves pop, rock, or anything in between."
Still listening in.

"Well worth price to check these boys out. They serve up some delicious tunes on this album, by far one of my favourites out this year."
Surprisingly Excellent

"     I first heard the High Speed Scene on G4's "Attack of the Show", and I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were compared to other groups previously featured on the program. Their song, "In the Know" hooked me from the beginning, and I bought their debut CD simply on the merit on that one tune. After taking one listen-through of the entire album, however, I was blown away by the quality of the songs. The melodies are quite catchy and the vocals are great (especially on my instant favorites "Hello Hello" and "Crazy star"). In fact, "In the Know" soon got over-shadowed by all of the new songs I was discovering.
     Now, don't get me wrong. This album is intensely juvenile. A fifteen-year old boy in math class at the local high school could have written these lyrics. They have no depth and no true meaning. However, if you can listen to lyrics like, "He's making fun because I play in marching band," without gagging, then this CD would be a very good buy. Almost all (the only exceptions being the absolutely atrocious "Last Chance" and "All Swans") the songs are easy to listen to. The only thing you'll have to worry about would be burnout. You might get tired of listening to these songs over and over again, but trust me, it's worth the risk. Want my advice? Buy it used for less than 25 cents. It's a good deal.

Final Verdict:
If you're an open-minded, melody-driven, or soft-core music fan, then get this CD. You might just like tHSS.

If you're a musical elitist who flames on any song that has ever been mentioned in the same sentence as the word "pop" and believes that music with no lyrical meaning could never possibly be worth listening to, then avoid this album like the plague."
