I have to write more so I will say that I heard one song on the radio and had to have the album.

I hate them. They look like rejects from one of those artsy-fartsy, black-and-white Levi's commercials. They sound like Joan Jett and The Pixies got lost in a closet with a big pile of coke, and they're stuff is so full of la-las and ooh-oohs that I can barely stand it. But the thing that really, truly pisses me off is that this is, most likely, the album of the year.

The Bowling Green, Kentucky-based, Sleeper Agent, is having the collective time of it's life on the debut record, Celabrasion. The record is so effortlessly brilliant that it's mere existence turns me envious shades of green that range from avacado to chartreuse. They pull every dirty trick in the rock catch-phrase book, churning out riff after riff, filling out their vocal lines with group shouts and sing-alongs that make Weezer's Pinkerton seem like 'just another record.'

Alright, I may be going overboard here, but this record is tighter than tight. Alex Kandel's vocals are youthful yet raw, as she leads her group of rock misfits through a merciless, infectious set. Starting from the get go, "Get It Daddy" the post-punk meter is topped-out with half-time break-downs, syncopated verses and a catchy-as-hell chorus. "Force a Smile" and "Get Burned" are brilliant, melodic, furious pop-tunes with all the appeal of an indie act like Tuscadero or The Dambuilders. Things get a bit more raw on the relatively mid-tempo "Suga Cane," "Some White Blinds" and "Proper Taste" sounding like Joan Jett or even Boss Hog, while "Love Blood" smacks of late-era Weezer, remaining catchy with a bit more novelty. But "Bottomed Out" begins as a Replacements-style bar rock tune but softens into a more dulcet chorus.

WOW...I cannot believe it's been a few days since it's release and NOBODY has left a review as of yet.

I did notice this cd was released on a smaller label...and my local Best Buy only ordered 2...so maybe that's it...it SURELY CANNOT be the content...these guys are really good.

I first heard these guys on one of my local radio stations, they played "Get it Daddy" and could not wait to get the entire album. The Chorus for Get it Daddy really reminded me of old vintage Misfits, which I am a sucker for...so I had to try them.

I have to say the entire album is VERY solid. If you like the single...you will like the entire album.

What I really like is that Track 9 "Some White Blinds" really shows that these guys can show their teeth when they want to...it's got a little bite to it. I really hope when they release a follow-up they will put a few more harder ones like this one on the disc.

If you have been longing for some original music that does not reek of mainstream garbage...give this a try. The band is not afraid to try some different things here and there, and you don't see that a lot.

Every once in a blue moon I will buy an album of which I will enjoy every single song on it. This is one such album.
If you like high energy indie rock with angst and aggressive male and female vocalists I would assuredly recommend this album for you.
If you like The Fratellis,Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Naked And Famous, The Strokes or the Killers, then this band is probably for you.

Sleeper Agent. A band I discovered through Cage the Elephant, with whom they share the home town of Bowling Green, Kentucky. As Cage are one of my favorite bands at the moment, I was thankful that their musical recommendation didn't disappoint.
The album comprises of 12 fairly simple tracks, bursting with melody, hooks and brightness. The band's vocal responsibility lies with Alex Kandal and Tony Smith (also guitar); a boy-girl team up which perfectly compliments the poppy, high-energy music, courtesy of Justin Wilson (drums), Lee Williams (bass), Josh Martin (Guitar) and Scott Gardner (keys). If you like indie style outfits with a pop edge, you will more than likely be on the right street with Sleeper Agent, I can't say enough as to just how likeable they are. The only reason I knocked a star off is because Sleeper Agent are part of a scene which has become frankly monotonous and in general this album isn't anything groundbreaking, but they are still a shining light. Personal highlights for me are the ridiculously catchy "Force a smile" and the most edgy song on the album "These white blinds". Definitely would recommend these guys and when the chance arrives, I will go watch them live.

What an awesome album.... truly great... if you like layered rock with a slightly new alternative sound mixed with a slightly old school sound, then I think this might be one to check out... you can get a hint of why this album is so amazing just by taking a quick browse of all the reviews on Amazon... every reviewer is picking a different favorite song...and you know what? I can't argue with any of them - because this album really is that crazy good with that many different fun songs - any of which might be your favorite... whether it's the first big single "Get It Daddy", "Shuga Cane," "Love Blood," "That's My Baby,", or "Be My Monster"... or I haven't even mentioned my favorite "All Waves and No Goodbyes" which is a softer track stuck all the way near the end, and contains one of my all-time favorite song lyrics (or at least a favorite of recent years). The lyric: "I'm gonna make you believe in me/Gonna make you believe in me/(But you can't make me make up your damn mind)"... And I'll bet some reviewer will come along after me and mention their own favorite which might be any one of the other 6 tracks on the album - because there's not a loser in the bunch (seriously - I missed "Get Burned?" Great f'ing song)... anyhow I love every track on the album and they move seemlessly from one to the other... I don't get that much these days... My ipod lets me pick and choose songs and most bands are lucky if I keep 3-4 tracks off their album on my regular rotations... but with these guys I'm listening to the whole thing over and over... I saw this band at the end of November 2011 in concert and picked up the CD -and I'm sure I've listened to it 30 times or more since (~45 days later)... It's simply addictive... enjoyable stuff... why are you even reading review... you're online- sample the music - you'll know if this for you... for my tastes, favorite album of last year....
