Sound: Although not necessarily innovative, this bands blend of power pop and cheery acoustic folk/punk is constantly entertaining. The blend of the two voices and the attractiveness of their melodies have kept me occupied for days. The quirky shortness of the "album" makes it all the more unique. // 8

Lyrics: Full of humorous observations and sarcastic wit. Both vocalists sit great together and "sell" their lyrics with such a high level of compassion and understanding of what they are saying. The band are fun and optimistic, never failing to make you smile with their simplistic genius. // 9

Overall Impression: Whilst simultaneously appealing to the "new kids" of pop punk and catering for a more mainstream market with their acoustic smarts, this band just might hit the big time. Their combination of raw, frantic punk power and pop hooks gives this album entertaining experience. // 8
