Low Budgets -Go For Broke CD

Low Budgets
Go For Broke CD

The Low Budgets are a very promising garage/punk/new wave/indie band. The instruments layer over each other extremely well, and the freaky keyboard sound just rocks. On the minus side, the vocals on some of the tracks suck hard. However, since the songs are mostly instrumental anyway, this isn't a major complaint, and Chris manages to pull things together pretty well on side 2.

Naked Raygun
Jettison CD

This CD kicks ass. "Soldier's Requiem" is, in my opinion, one of the hundred best songs ever written. The three live bonus tracks suck, but it's completely solid up until there, and there are quite a few awesome songs on the album.

Screeching Weasel
My Brain Hurts CD

A perfect introduction to Screeching Weasel. Most of the tracks are just great, and the worst song ("Making You Cry") is still decent. The best song on MBH, and just about the best argument for SW's awesomeness, is "The Science of Myth," which is a punk song about religion that isn't negative. Imagine that.

Screeching Weasel
How to Make Enemies... CD

I didn't take to this album very quickly. The mix is awful; you can only hear the vocals, guitar, and snare drum, and a couple of the songs just blow. But there are also some really good songs, like "99," "Surf Goddess," and "I Wrote Holden Caulfield." Don't make this your first SW album, but it's worth getting.

Screeching Weasel
Television City Dream CD

Don't get this. The production and mixing suck--you can't hear the bass at all--, as do most of the songs. I have 11 CDs of Ben Weasel's bands, and this is by far the worst. Get any other SW album before this one.

Eyeliners -Sealed With A Kiss CD

Eyeliners
Sealed With A Kiss CD

12 tracks of pop-punk goodness. The lyrics, while dependent on cliched rhymes, work pretty well, and the riffs are the catchiest thing this side of the Dead Milkmen. While not all the tracks are outstanding, none of them are bad, and quite a few, like "Everything's Alright," "It Could Have Been You," and the title tracks, just blow me away. Track 3 is a duet with Ben Weasel that works a lot better than I would have expected.

Eyeliners
Confidential CD

This is a pretty good debut album. The lyrics are unintelligible a lot of the time, and way too poppy for the music. The riffs are nice and angry and rockin' and tend to get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The Eyeliners demostrate a lot of potential, but there's only one really great song, "Secret Spy." Don't make this your first Eyeliners CD, but definitely get it if you like them.

Mr. T Experience
Love Is Dead CD

On the plus side: The lyrics are great, with a lot of convoluted wordplay, and Dr. Frank's delivery more than makes up for his bad singing voice.

On the minus side: The riffs suck something awful. MTX could be great if they just picked up a better tunesmith.

Even In Blackouts
Myths & Imaginary Magicians CD

EiB have a really original sound, a sort of eccentric pop-punk with acoustic guitars and mandolin. The songs (except for the covers) are by Jughead of Screeching Weasel, whose riffs caried a lot of early SW songs.The lyrics are odd, and I still have no idea what "27 Seconds of Flame" is about, but they work really well. The lead singer has sort of an odd voice, but you get used to it. The album also features Dan Lumley doing his usual excellent job on drums. In short: get this album right now.

Queers -Move Back Home CD

Queers
Move Back Home CD

This is a decent album, but it's nowhere near the guitar-pop goodness that is Don't Back Down or Pleasant Screams. There are too many angry rock tunes, few of which are any good, and most of the love songs that do appear don't hold up compared to those on the aforementioned albums. However, there are a few really great songs, like "I Can't Get Invited to the Prom" and "High School Psychopath," so it's not a complete waste.
