these guys are seriously looking to blow up this year. I was just in Europe less than a week ago and the press over there is crazy for them. There were on the cover of Kerrang magazine and every music magazine I saw had a major spread of them. I hope it comes to the states cause these guys really deserve it.

And didn't Sink or Swim come out in 2007?

You said 2006 in your review.

XOXO released it in 06 and i think sideonedummy picked them up and re-released it in 07

well their reference to Elvis is actually an allusion to the counting crows song "Round Here" that goes:

"Maria came to Nashville with a suitcase in her hands. Said she'd like to meet a boy who looked like Elvis."

Clever boy that Fallon. There's also some springsteen and Seger lyrics in there.

Great review Chris. Though, I disagree with some aspects of it. I have A LOT to say about this album but no time. I'd give it probably a little over an 80. (Sink or Swim would be about a 95 and I gave their EP a little over 85 I think)

Now I just need to wait for the vinyl....

The EP came out last year, but I think the debut was re-released since it was on XOXO, a smaller label.

Good album, but the vocal reverb is ridiculous and really hurts the appeal of the album for me. Seriously, try harder to be Springsteen. But it's still a really good record. That's just my main complaint.
I totally understand how that could bug someone, as it took some getting used to after a few listens for myself. I believe it becomes valuable to the sound of the record though in terms of everything it is accomplishing - it's an All-American record with classic hints of blues and country weaved throughout the mellow punk rock sound it presents. I feel like it becomes an effective piece to the live sound it gives off.
