Editorial Reviews


Besides the great name for a power pop album, this lot have an amusing history. They literally formed at medical school, then dropped out to pursue a musical career. This column is well used to bands using that formula, except it tends to be Berklee or Julliard Schools of music that produce it. Guess JD are trying to see if they can pull a real life Rick Springfield. (Springfield played Dr Noah Drack on General Hospital before and several times in between his pop rock career). This is power pop bouncing stuff that aimed clearly at the young female market. But like Cheap Trick back in the day, it's a band that guys won t vomit while listening to. A Florida band that is getting quite a bit of airplay, they are trying to break out and become national. Catchy choruses, inoffensive lyrics and car radio-friendly rock are what they specialize in. I know I would rather listen to these guys all day than anything resembling hip-hop or R&B. A perfect birthday present for your favourite niece.

Even though I grew up on bands like Sugarcult and Good Charlotte, pop-punk and I have had a love/hate relationship these past few years. The music hasn t changed much, but the scene has become so diluted with bands using identical names, song titles, haircuts and stage moves, that it s become impossible to tell many of them apart. They ve undoubtedly seen the incredible success of bands like All Time Low and Mayday Parade, and hope to ride the same wave to the top. Unfortunately, many of them simply end up fading into the abyss of forgettable pop groups. Based in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Junior Doctor are a four-piece act that are well on their way to being one of the few to break through the clutter. While it s not uncommon to hear of bands forming at a school like Berklee, the founding members of JD actually met each other in med school, then dropped out to pursue music full time. So far, it doesn t seem like it s a decision they ll be regretting. With catchy melodies, quotable lyrics and undeniable musicianship, the group brings us their first full-length record, Clumsy Words and Bad Pickup Lines. The songwriting isn t the only strength on the album though, as the production is equally impressive. Of course, I wouldn t expect anything less for producers who have worked with the two aforementioned pop punk heavyweights, plus Cartel, Underoath, The Click Five, Anberlin and Go Radio. Clumsy Words opens with the back-to-back Impressive and Pretty Girl, pounding, energetic anthems that start the album off on a great note. The third track (and first single), Uh Oh, changes things up by starting off with a bouncy pop beat. It s these subtle, yet dynamic changes that allow this record to flow nicely, as well as stay intriguing for the full 40 minutes. Uh Oh s sing-song chorus recounts a boy s frustration with being invisible to the girl of his dreams, and will surely have fans singing at the top of their lungs. Junior Doctor slow things down towards the middle of the record with Keep On and Beautiful and Blind, proving that they can effortlessly pull off the ballads too. The downtime doesn t last long, though, and the record picks back up with the aggressive, Spill Canvas-like Alright and What I Do, which were the two standouts on the record. The album closes with the acoustic Leaving, which allows vocalist/rhythm guitarist Mark Hartman s voice to shine without all the bells and whistles of the rest of the tracks. It s a striking change, and it s pulled off beautifully. Though Junior Doctor will certainly be adored by a younger crowd, it s a band that the more mature music fan will be able to enjoy as well. With skyrocketing views and plays on YouTube and MySpace, along with radio airplay, you ll definitely be hearing their name in the future. Don t be late to the party. --Under The Gun (

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album, even better live! December 14, 2012
By Wookiee
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Junior Doctor live when they opened for The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, they opened with the song Perfect Girl and I was instantly hooked. Their set was very energetic and I could clearly see that the band was passionate about their music. By the time their set was over, I was determined to buy their album. The band was at the merch table and even signed the setlist that I got off of the stage. The album is full of toe-tapping songs and its an overall really enjoyable album that I could listen to over and over again. I can't recommend Clumsy Words and Bad Pickup lines enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and wonderful November 16, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a great album that has some diverse songs. Their popular Uh Oh is catchy and cutsy while Not Now is more serious. There are hidden gems in each song that makes you realize how great the lyrics are. There are some very clever and witty lines that you can't halo but laugh at. I think this is a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has it all April 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The tracks are catchy and addicting and you can't help but tap your foot (at the very least) while you're listening. They go from poppy "Uh-Oh" to edgy "What I do" and finally the poignant "Leaving." This album leaves you wanting for nothing.
