Following their breakthrough releases for the Lookout and Dim Mak labels, the Seattle quintet Pretty Girls Make Graves emerge with their hotly anticipated Matador debut, and a late contender for best album of 2003. That The New Romance is as anthemic and explosive as Good Health is no surprise; but the band's compositional skills have grown by leaps and bounds, along with their flair for the dramatic. Produced by Phil Ek (Built To Spill).

They may have toured with the Blood Brothers, but Pretty Girls Make Graves are not extremists. They concoct haunting melodies with no consideration whatsoever about the marketability of their music. Mad props for that. Also for getting their business done in under 40 minutes, even though the album doesn't sound overly short. Maybe a bit pricey, but worth it. PGMG will not waste your time.

i saw them with alk3 a while back and was greatly surprised. i really liked their sound. so months later i decided to buy the cd. six months later than that ive decided to review the cd. its really good. andrea has some amazing vocals. ill admit it, i like this band, and im a guy. its ok. i dont feel like less of a man because i like this band. and believe me, i get a lot of shit for liking them, but its worth it. all my friends can stick with mest and fall out boy (which fall out boy can suck my ass) and ill stick to some brilliantly written songs that actually have some meaning behind them.
