Steal Yer Heart

BYO 107

Released on October 18, 2005



Hailing from the caffeinated hub, Seattle, The Briefs' exquisite '77 style of pogo inducing punk rock can get any crowd moving. The classic song "Poor and Weird", from their freshman release Hit After Hit, helped put the band on the musical radar. The story after that is history (and involves a quick, as the Briefs say, "In and Out" with a major label) and back to their current home BYO Records.

Steal Yer Heart marks the bands fourth full length release and offers up 12 of the most enjoyable 2 minute shocks of punk rock that your heart can ever desire. On this outing, the band has moved into the bizarre world of their romantic selves with songs like "Razorblade Heart", "Stuck On You", and the almost offensive, "40 & Above", Never fear, you can expect to find another peak into the absurd world of the Briefs who are quickly becoming part of every music lovers essential collection and there's no sign of slowing down.

Standard Briefs. Catchy, scrappy, 4 piece pop-punk with little distortion on guitars and drums aren't very tight at times. But really catchy and really pretty good live. Real nice dudes too. Saw them in July 2006 with Rancid. They have been busy with other stuff like Steve E. Nix and the Cute Lepers. But I hope a new record is in the works. They definately played some of the tracks off this record when I saw them such as "Forty and Above". Most songs pretty fast although some are more mid-tempo like "Razorblade Heart" which is often Queers-esque at times. Good work. Dig it. Does not come with lyrics, but that is what the internet is for. Production is good though.

I think this is my favourite Briefs album, but the others are also amazing. The no.1 punkband, you got to check them out! For fans of Rawmania or Beltones.

I used to be very mixed up on how I thought about this album. It's a really good album but upon my first listen I couldn't help but overwhelmingly think "Sex Objects was so much of a better album." But after that initial response I eventually warmed up on this. I never write reviews for albums I get immediately after I've purchased them because sometimes it takes quite a many months for me to reflect and really sit back and judge on what I really think about an album and how to compare it to a bands work overall.

I think the problem more-so though is with the Briefs in that with every new album they release their sound just becomes a bit more predictable. Their witty and cathcy lyrics are what helps keep their sound so strong, so whenever you get a song that isn't as catchy or lyrically interesting from a new album from them that you haven't given time to really seep into your mind then this affects your judgment.

I'm kind of rambling on but overall this album contains some really great songs like Lint Fabrik, Genital General, Getting Hit On At The Bank, Criminal Youth, and Normal Jerks. So in the end, I wouldn't say this is an excellent album but Briefs fans will still enjoy it a lot.

After numerous listens, I've decided that this one doesn't quite live up to SEX OBJECTS. That's not to say that it's sonically different, sound-wise. I mean, the Briefs have never strived for total originality, and a lot of their choruses are structured almost the exact same way (which is not to say that they ever become boring). The overall "feel" and nuances of the album just isn't as good as SEX OBJECTS's, and the wacky themes about being killed by insects and shoplifting Macy's have been swapped for tamer, more romantic/generic ones. I do give props to the band for being a bit experimental on "Getting Hit on at the Bank" and "Razorblade Heart", both of which sound as though they could be on a Teenage Kicks album. If you're looking for a place to start with the Briefs, try SEX OBJECTS, then this one. (Their first two albums aren't really that great in my opinion.)

Perhaps it is just the comparison of Steal Yer Heart's cover to Sex Objects' cover, but I can't say I get as pumped when I listen to this release as I do for sex objects. None the less, it is still a great album, just not compared to the Breifs last release. Plenty of catchy but hard pop songs and cheeky none-sensical lyrics,as well as some lrics with a message or a point. I would say the top three songs on here are better then the best three from SEx objects, but once again, as a whole SO is better. I hope i've helped

A solid record, but more forgetable than 'Sex Objects,' their true masterpiece of '77-styled snot punk. The highlights of 'Steal Yer Heart' are "Criminal Youth," "I Can't Work," "Razorblade Heart," and "Normal Jerks."

I got this cd for my friend for Christmas and had to listen to it. The Briefs are a great band and this album supplies their classic sound. I also suggest Hit After Hit if you liked this one.

Its the fuckin' Briefs! what do you expect?! I love this record. It, i don't think, dissappoints at all. But, on the other hand, it is just like all there other releases. And, in most cases i'd say thats a bad thing. Not that its horrible not to change, but then its really not worth owning every album of a band that doesn't change, such as the Briefs. But they are just that fun and great that you have to own every release, even if they change only minutely. So yeah, pick this up.
