The first thing you think is, "Hey, this is tight, spry and fun. Sure, they mope a bit, but the hooks are so lip-smackin' yummy that they won't make me blue." Then you learn a little bit about the band, so you think, "My God, they're young!!" And then it all starts making sense. Alternating between mid-tempo post-grunge (e.g., their 1998 mega-hit "Inside Out") and punk-pop that rushes at you like a pack of mad dogs, this is so-catchy-it-hurts music for the kid in all of us that won't embarrass you or your loved ones.
