"Moving Targets were such an underated band it almost hurts. They had great chunky melodic basslines that chugged along allowing the guitar to swoon over the top and then take control at the right moment for full on power pop with great hooks and choruses. All there stuff is good, 'Burning in Water' has the best songs, but 'Fall' is their most consistent album in that it works well from the instrumental start to the finish and i can imagine it would be fun as hell to skate to. If you like this sort of music it might also be worth seeking out bands like Mega City Four and Drive both from England who continued this lost tradition of powerful pop songs without turning into wackey pop punkers with c-razy facial expressions."
