The mp3s are better than they were live' date=' they're pretty good.[/quote']

Can I ask, what do you like about those two tracks?

Hmmm, to me they just sound like some bog standard american punky/angst teenage type band!?!?

Just my opinion like, no need for any nasty returns. ;)

Dont wanna sound like a dick but if you like punk then its kinda self explanatory why you would like them. Not my kinda thing but they are good at what they do so good for them.

i think there are some interesting rhythms, I like how it sounds like the singer could literally explode at any second and how his vocals manage to keep a repeated chord progression being played on the guitars and bass interesting. How the first and second half of the songs sound like different songs yet are blended together seamlessly.

It is very Fugazi, especially that bit at about 2:20 in the first song with the palm muting and although in a way I like the vocals, I don't like how the accent is obviously fake. It is very much a popular style just now and it's not really one I'm in to, but I can appreciate this.

It's actually the singing that puts me off the tracks, I like some of the instrument playing, but like you say, "the accent is obviously fake".

Why do you always type above the quotes? That really annoys me...

It's the vocals that annoy me aswell. The singing style kind of reminds me of bands like Pavement, Les Savy Fav, The Van Pelt, American bands that can get quite annoying sometimes. The music's alright, a few hooks, but nothing I especially like..

Potential..

Kris Watson was in the band if that's what you were thinking Dave. I'm guessing now he's not and instead they have drafted in a complete los... I mean, uh... Maxi :D
