Grown Ups – “More Songs”

Album Reviews | Mar 9th, 2011

Record Label: Big Scary Monsters
Genre: Emo
Band Link: www.myspace.com/ihategrownups
Buy on Amazon.com

Emo indie that mixes a sparse, downtempo, strummy sound with punky vocals. The vocals aren’t too bad, but they remind me of Ian MacKaye gargling marbles. It doesn’t seem to fit well atop the barely-there, arpeggio-flecked music.

I found this to be excruciatingly dull, and even with my bias of actively disliking emo music, I can’t imagine who would enjoy listening to this. I recommend skip.

Bottom Line: The lack of imagination in an album title like “More Songs” is reflected in the music.
