Good review. Wasn't expecting to see a rating that high for this band.
Kenneth Nixon can sing. If he couldn't, this would be way lower. Plus, for what it's worth, I'm one of the more generous reviewers out there.

For the four songs I starred, yep. For the rest, not so much.

I'm definitely way out of the loop when it comes to bands like this now. I had to smile at seeing Pound in the RIYL. "Upside Down" was catchy as shit back in the day, run-of-the-mill post-grunge or not. I didn't think anyone else even remembered them.
Hell yeah. I used to love them. Being that they were from Poughkeepsie, I bet they used to play Albany and RPI a ton. Glad someone else knows who they are. Whoooo!

Their first album was actually decent. This one just completely comes off as a band trying too hard to stay on the radio. Why do rock bands insist upon writing cheesy pop punk songs? As a semi-legitimate question why did this even get a 6 for creativity?
As is widely documented on this site, I am one of the more generous reviewers out there. Certainly this could have gotten a four for creativity, but I just don't have it in me to rip it apart that badly. This isn't unlistenable. It's just a bit trite.
