Editorial Reviews

If one was to make a musical time capsule of 2007 a collection of sounds and lyrics reflecting the energy of our moment it might be a good idea to drop in a copy of METRO STATION's eponymous debut record. Sure, the band is young (OK, still in fake ID territory), but Metro Station's brazenly catchy dance hooks and yearning lyrics perfectly capture what it feels like to be a teenager in today's culture. This is a band that was weaned on and made by the Internet, whose dedicated legion of online fans made them MySpace stars in a matter of weeks. This is a band that caught the early attention of ALTERNATIVE PRESS (earning a spot as one of the magazine's 22 Best Underground Bands), along with URB and TEEN VOGUE magazines, months before they signed to a label. Metro Station is a band that, despite their youth, have made their way from greasy mall jobs to recording with Motion City Soundtrack in the same year. They are truly a product of their times and their generation, and they are ready to take advantage of it.

Among so many of today's bands that lack dynamics, determination and over all fun, the debut from L.A's Metro Station succeeds in every way.
Having seen the band live, I am pleased to report THIS IS WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE!
Got it? Good...i feel better too.

Speaking of sound, it is difficult to pinpoint the synth-pop/pop-rock/rock-rock-and more-rock label as "EMO" becomes a vague cliché the same way "Trip-Hop" did in the 90's. Just listen and make up a cool new category later.

A welcome surprise is how many songs feature elements from the band's original MySpace demos... no wonder they got the album out so soon (Hey look! Non-manufactured talent!).

Talent...and yeah two band members are "not of drinking age" to quote numerous bios but they are not kids either.

The album is paced very evenly (throw it on at your next party and see what happens) and by the closer "Disco", still feels fresh with adrenaline.

Without irony i will say Metro Station rock and ROCK much better than any of y'know, most of those guys who can drink an' stuff.

This is one of the best CDs that I own. They have a fresh sound that reminds me of old school electronica from my teens like Information Society yet with a modern twist. Yes, the lead singer is Miley Cyrus's brother but this is NOT teeny bopper stuff. Teens can relate to this music but bubblegum/Disney fodder it most definitely is not. It is modern, funky, danceable, and oh so sexy. I am 36 years old and get inspired by this music in a most profound way. I feel teens and adults can both connect to this fresh, exciting, and even transporting music. When I listen to it, I know I am definitely transported to a happier plane and my life seems better right away. Buy this and your mood will lift - guaranteed. Also the lead singer's vocals are very sexy, soulful, and right on point. I know you will enjoy this band as much as I do! Thanks to Open House Party where I first heard their music!

As a 29 year old, this is kind of embarrassing, but I LOVE this CD!! It is so much fun to listen to! It kind of reminds me of what the Cure would sound like if they were upbeat. I thought I might not "get" it or like it since I'm not a teenager and there are definitly lyrics about being a teen, but I still like it. If you like the "Shake, Shake" single, then get the album, it's all good!

I am 40 years old and totally enjoyed Metro Station's debut CD for two reasons. First is that they sound like one of my favorite band The Cars. Second is the Filipino drummer Anthony Improgo. Pinoys rock too! There is so post about Trace Cyrus. I dont consider him the lead singer. Mason Musso is the lead because he can sing the high notes. Trace does the whispering long notes. However, both voices complement each other which is a unique combo that usually doesnt work. Anyone who grew up on 80s music will enjoy the album's nostalgic beat. When I first got the CD, I actually thought that "Shake It" was the worst song in the album. If that is the worst, imagine how good the rest of the album is. I was surprised to hear it on the radio as the first single.

This is serious guilty pleasure territory. After seeing the video I couldn't believe my eyes. They look like the obnoxious "emo" kids from high school. For all intents and purposes they should be playing horribly generic metal and/or acoustic tear jerkers, not making the some of the catchiest Electro-pop this side of the Killers. This sounds like the fun/beat of New Order meets the teenage drama of The Cure translated through the eyes of kids whom, if played New Order to, would probably think it was a Postal Service rip-off.

If they're serious, they lucked out and found the perfect mix of pubesent angst and earnest. If they're a joke, there the greatest thing since Kaufman.

I LOVE THAT SHAKE SONG. BY THE WAY AT THE AGE OF 51, I HAVE YOU ALL BEAT AT THE MOMENT. I AM NOT ASHAMED TO SAY I LOVE ALL THIS MUSIC!!!! I HEARD IT ON THE RADIO & ASK MY DAUGHTER AGE 31 ABOUT IT. SHE TOLD ME THE NAME OF THE BAND. I HAD TO CHECK THIS OUT. I LOVE ALL THE SONGS. IT IS A GREAT PICK ME UP WHILE DOING HOUSE WORK & DOING THE DISHES. I DON'T CARE WHAT THE AGE OR WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE AS LONG AS THE BEAT IS GREAT. AT MY AGE I'VE SEEN AND HEARD IT ALL. I LIKE THIS BAND AND I HOPE THEY DO MORE OF THE SAME. IF THEY DO I WILL PROBABLY BUY IT TOO. I GUESS THERE ARE DIFFERENT TASTES FOR EVERY ONE. I DO LIKE THE SOUND OF THIS MUSIC. AN OLD GRANNY WOMAN

from the band Metro Station. I love the song "Shake It" among others on their debut cd.

It's fun to listen to, full of energy and has a nice selection of songs throughout that will have you bobbing your head along to the individual tracks. Its great to see a band come out and put out a cd that is easy on the ears and doesn't take itself too seriously. It sounds like they had fun making this cd and i hope to check out more from them in the future.

A nice up and coming band, Metro Station is sure to be around for more than awhile. Nice pickup and for a pretty decent price as well.

This is one of the best cds out there. I would say it a mix between pop/rock and techno/rock, which is one of the best genres. If you love music that will make you wanna dance you should deffinatly get this cd!
