NO. I went to their myspace based on their ridiculous RIYL and listened to 30-45 seconds of the song "Diet Coke" and resolved that I will never need to listen to this band ever again. Dear god. they're nothing like any of their listed counterparts (except for Pearl Jam... because they suck).

Also, OutReach (based on the little I decided I could listen to) is your run-of-the-mill radio rock... A-la your 3 Days Grace or 3 Doors Down or any of your 3 something bands. Barf.

http://www.mediafire.com/?vntvg1xbcjq

RIYL: kleenex, 5 gum, CDRWs, Skor candy bars, my keys, my wallet, and everything else sitting next to me on the desk. i'm terrible with RIYL for my own music; it's just pop, that's pretty much it

Earlier, I described it to my friend by saying it sounds a little bit like valencia and the guitar-y parts of powerspace, with the amps cranked up a little higher

Love the album, Nathan. Did you ever post a pic of those shirts you were ordering? Or am I thinking of someone else?
