Sound — 10
Every song sounds great on the album. I love Sugarcult. They didn't change that much. Some songs sound similar to the songs on "Start Static" But it's not noticable. I just listened to the cd too many times. But it's a great cd. The sound is wonderful.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are awesome! Also they go with the actual sound of the song. For example "Back To California" and "Sign Off" are real mellow songs so the sound is mellow. And "Champagne" is am upbeat song with upbeat lyrics. The only problem is they reuse lyrics in their songs. They Say "I'm falling Down" in at least two songs. But it's not noticable so it's alright.
Overall Impression — 10
My Overall impression is "Start Static" is a very good album and "Palm Trees And Power Lines" is a very good following album. So I suggest you buy it. You will not be disappointed. I was not. Sugarcult is a very good band.
