Editorial Reviews

Israel's favorite pop punkers, Useless ID, are back with their finest release to date. It's been said that the third time's the charm, and that's definitely the case with Useless ID. Redemption is a perfect example of the kind of quality pop flavored punk that Kung Fu has made famous with bands like Blink 182 and the Ataris. The Japanese get it, Useless ID outdraws all of their Kung Fu label mates when they tour there and Japan record sales are through the roof. Now it's time for the U.S. to see what they've been missing. Fontana. 2005.

Normally I would give this four stars, but I am giving it five because this band deserves better than the limited exposure they get, and secondly because not all the reviewers below have given this CD justice. I bought Useless ID's last CD "No Vacation From the World" and found this newer release "Redemption" to be an improvement. It's a bit poppier, but on the other hand, the song "Pink Stars and Magazines" was one of the best punk songs to be released in 2005. Also noteworthy is the opening track (which starts out almost identical to the Goo Goo Dolls "Slide" then builds up to a pop-punk chorus. Another winner is the track "Suffer For the Fame," which shows the group branching out into new territory without selling out via a big dark gothic opera (Like Good Charlotte and Blink 182 have done.) Also catchy is "Turn Up the Stereo," very similar to the Ataris "Radio #2." There are a few duds, particularly towards the end of the album (ironically the same thing dragged down their previous album a bit as well) and the track "Before I Go" sounds like it was taken right out of the Weezer playbook, but all in all, quite a good time. The album gets a positive vibe going, unlike the dark gothic all-too-serious "new mature sound" that many of these bands have adopted lately. Kudos to Useless I.D. for making another winner and giving the fans the kind of music THEY want to hear. If you're lookin for some catchy pop-punk similar to Allister's "Last Stop Suburbia" or Sugarcult's "Start Static" then look no further.

This band is pretty good. They are kinda like new found glory and a little bit of simple plan mixed in. Their beats and lyrics are completely awesome and whenever you listen to it you get pumped up. I'd reccomend this cd along with their other cd no vacation from the world.

I don't know what happened to Useless ID between the release of Bad Story Happy Ending and this abomination, but whatever it was it wasn't good.

The pride of Hafia Israel, Useless ID, used to be a good punk band with poppy components. With this cd, it's obvious that they've become a pop band with (presumably) punk hair cuts. If you liked Let it Burn or Bad Story Happy Ending, do not buy this cd.

I only found out about Useless ID in August 05. I listened to a sample of it and loved it. Then, i bought the cd, Redemption. I still cannot believe that they are Israeli! At least that's what i've heard. I think the drummer is crazy in a good way on this whole cd. The guitars are cool, too. The lyrics are great, too. So i will do a review(by the way, i wrote the review for Slipknot + 2 if you're who i am):

1.Its allright - very cool song. Its amazing. this was the song i heard a sample of when i heard it. Even then, it was like green day. Great.

2.Kiss me/Kill me - This is a great song. i like how in the chorus the chord progression changes completely. Yes.

3.Pink stars and magazines - this is the latest "issue" of great punk songs. I love the lyrics the most. It great.

4.Deny it - This is the only song that BORES me a little. the lyrics could be a bit better and so the druming as well. 1/2 and 1/2.

5.Suffer for the fame - my absolute favorite on the whole cd. first it starts out with jazzy type music and goes into a jimi hendrix vresion one of beethovens symphonys. then it just goes into the song. but i'd still say that its great. Excitment and all. i like how at the end its kind of like a Slipknot chorus and it goes, "I!!!! don't want it in my world........" An amazing one.

6.Turn up the stereo - good song. it even does feel like i want to turn up the stereo. its great song.

7. Before i go - i think its an amazing song. 1. because my friends and me are making a movie and its about exploring and this song might be the opening credits. 2. the lyrics and vocal styling are one of the best on the cd.

8. Dying Love- its a great song. just BORES me a little. Pretty good, tho.

9.Drinkage-good song.
