Overall, I would just say that this album is a bit on the boring side. It is pretty typical rock and roll in the vein of Jimmy Eat World or maybe even something a little less edgy. The melodies are fine and the musicianship is ok, but there is just nothing that makes you want to listen over and over again.

“Send Me an Angel” is one of the nicer songs, but then again I find the lyrics to be, umm, well, I don’t know. The song starts, “Do you believe in heaven above, do you believe in love, don’t tell a lie, don’t be false or untrue, it all comes back to you.” And the chorus is the same as the title.

Overall there is nothing here that will offend your ears, but I can’t imagine you would want this in heavy rotation in your CD player either. If you want to skip this album altogether, you should try releases by Jimmy Eat World, or even the latest from Hey Mercedes. That at least rocks a bit harder, while sticking to the basic rock conventions that are in place here.

    That song, Send me an Angel, is a cover song. I remember it from the 80’s BMX movie, RAD.

    Really? Which BMX movie from the 80’s? There were many of them. :-)

    I mean we have Peter Billingsley in “The Dirt Bike Kid.”
