"This album is completely derivative and--worse--it's extremely boring. This band has some awesome influences, but the music they make (at least on this album) is neither their own, nor is it anywhere near being as good as the sounds that they are emulating. All of these songs sound the same, and the lyrics are completely uninspired. I got this album for free from a friend who hated it, and after a few painful listens, I passed it on to another friend. If you want to hear something that sounds like the Everly Brothers or the Jesus & Mary Chain, listen to those bands. If you want to hear something new that sounds retro, you're better off checking out any of the hundreds of other retro-sounding bands that are actually putting out interesting music."
