Were it not for the deft guitar work and the heat inversion in the sardonic lyrics, this would just be another collection of bright-minded pop coming from out of the Cleveland/Akron area. The band is loud and melodic, self-assured and composed. A minor tour de force. Listening to this CD kept me happy one morning while looking up addresses online for a temp job. Deryck did all the vocals and guitar work on the album; the other members are in the live band.
