We Are the In Crowd - Guaranteed To Disagree
 
We Are The In CrowdGuaranteed To Disagree
Record Label: Hopeless Records
Release Date: June 8, 2010

Who?

One of the newest signings of Hopeless Records, We Are The In Crowd, are set to take the music world by storm with their female lead vocals and pop sound.

How is it?

The EP starts off with “Carry Me Home” and Tay’s voice comes out full-force and is excellent. Then the male vocals come in and they seem a bit off and out of sync with Tay’s vocals. This seems to just be the case for that song as the next song “Never Be What You Want” has both vocals being great and in sync. The instrumentation is on par with what you would expect from a pop/pop-rock band. Nothing groundbreaking or pulling your attention away from the vocals. The best part of this is the drums on the album being a sleeper hit. We Are The In Crowd are and will be compared to Paramore. Luckily for We Are The In Crowd, they have gained my attention and me as a fan. Paramore has failed at that aspect. Regardless, this is a good start for We Are The In Crowd and they should continue along this path.

Score does not match up with review.
Actually, I really can't tell what you are saying in the review.
Looking forward to seeing mine come up, even though there are already four other reviews...

Too short. Barely any discussion of the songs. No reason for such a low score.

Not a good review. But I love this EP

Nothing new + debut EP = does not warrant a high score with me

And review is not too short for an EP review.

Once-overs can be simply described as mini-reviews. They are brief and usually reserved for EPs, especially from unsigned bands. Once-overs have a specific format and are broken up into two sections: "Who?" and "How is it?" Who? provides a bit of background information on the artist in a few sentences, and How is it gives an overview of the music.

Oh and on my site the rating was a 3/5 which looks better than 60%
