Harsh review, although I wouldn't have given it much more.
Wanted to like this, but it was/is a mediocre record.

Ouch. This isn't that great, but a 45. Whew. Awesome opening, btw.

dan's original "american express" demos were awesome.

Cynical and sarcastic dick
This is pleasant but the guy's voice just sounds awkward trying to sing pop/dance songs.

It's not the greatest album to jam, but these new songs are pretty fun live. The cd makes a little more sense live.

Well put, Jeremy. I can't remember a single Young Love song off the top of my head, tbh, not even the one on that short-lived MTV dance show.
I do remember there was one I really liked, but alas, I still can't remember how it goes.

album isn't as good as Too Young To Fight It, but a 45% is a bit harsh
I lost these. do you still have them?

Since I'm in Austin I can definitely say that Recover did recover...and is still recovered...but they've mostly just played local shows in Austin. They're still great and great live. Dan Keyes just needs to stick with that IMO. The awkward vocals are due mainly to Dan's background in a post-Hardcore band, it's an odd jump from that to the stuff you hear in Young Love. Rory Phillips is an awesome producer but he can't work miracles.

I'm a little late on this one, but the first album was freaking great from start to finish. One of the best in the dance-rock genre.
But this new one is a massive disappointment, with "Black Boots" being the only one that rises to the quality of the previous album.
