5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: This is so brilliant it angers me. September 14, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rarity September 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
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.

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....

5.0 out of 5 stars A really nice surprise January 3, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When Amazon does their 5-dollar music mp3 deals I'm prone to just click on a band that looks promising.

In this case it was the band name, it sounded cool - just a random little click.....

Oh boy is it *good*.
Even better they have a range of sound and rhythm, they aren't just happy-esque pop - but the songs
are all catchy in their own way. The contrast of the female and male vocals is just right and
damn it if they don't sound like they are having fun.

Even better they have a sense of humor - on the band's site they offer a t-shirt that says you knew
this band before you heard their music in a car commercial.

Seriously - buy this album before they get discovered and they charge double for it.

Frankly I'd still buy it even then.

Sleeper Agent is one of my favorite bands at the moment. I saw them live in KC, MO a few years back. They opened for Cage the Elephant and they put on one hell of a good show.
