Straight up rock that goes right at you and punches you in the face and doesn't stop being awesome. All the way through. The guitars get right in your ears and won't get out and take over your mind like Kahn's ear worms. The bass gets right down, hits you in the gut and kicks you in the behind. The whole package let me sit back and enjoy it all without trying to get all emo and mopey about everything.

This album is solid all the way through; it's getting the best product from some plain decent rockers right NOW instead of from 30 years ago.

Free Energy - turned it up to 11. Still makes me drive faster than the law allows.

Dream City - made me make an illegal turn on red.

Bang Pop - someone said this was like the Ramones. I don't buy that, but I'd buy the song twice. I didn't, but I wouldn't complain if I had.

All I Know - starts out slow and inexorably picks it up like a delivery truck you don't realize is moving that fast until you're passing cops doing 80 but they don't pull you over because you're delivering a whole lotta awesome.

Bad Stuff - this is not bad stuff. great drum beat to start off. i love the effects on the guitars in this one. great lead too.

Dark Trance - starts with a guitar opening your face like a can opener. and just gets better and better.

Young Hearts - made my 6mos daughter look up and smile at me; it's fun, it's quick, it's peppy. Sounded a little like Steve Miller and Thin Lizzy. that made me repeat it.

Light Love - not really sure what this song is called, it sure isn't Light Love. whatever it is though, it's good. i'm going to say soulful, but these guys deliver so well on it that i don't feel like a dork having said that.

When music isn't challenging, it better be fun and catchy if it wants attention. Stuck on Nothing aims for the latter path, but it does so rather unapologetically. It doesn't aim to re-invent a genre, but to continue down a familiar path that would be less enjoyable if altered. Most of the elements feel immediately recognizable, the reference points generally sticking to 90s indie rock/pop (i.e. Nada Surf, Weezer). However, the hooks and melodies are too solid for you to stop listening. Like a home you never knew you had, you sort of strangely ask yourself as you move deeper into the album, "Have I heard these guys before?"

"Bang Pop" is one of the initial standout tracks, but the album is so strong throughout that it's difficult to pick a favorite. It's the sort of song that you'd actually want to clap along to at a show even if the band didn't insist on it. Where the album does fall short is the absence of shifts in momentum. All the tracks move along at a similar casual, summer-paced speed. Additionally, the music stays pretty basic. Most tracks contain a few rock chords with the occasional fist pumping transitional solo. Again, the music was meant to be simple and not to push envelopes. It's a fairly bold move in today's constantly shifting sonic climate, yet Stuck on Nothing is enough fun to make it memorable and a mainstay in your hypothetical 5 disc changer.

Normally I've afraid of hyperbolic praise ruining the uninitiated's initial experience of the treasure in question, but I can't hold it in. This band has had me compromised for almost a year, and after listening to the album with actually decent headphones tonight this could easily end up being my number one of 2010. Free Energy "makes life worth living" or at least much much more fun; assuming of course that you at one time loved Thin Lizzy's boys being back in taaaowne.

There are albums out there that take a minute to grow on you. IN RAINBOWS by Radiohead, PINKERTON by Weezer, and BANANAPHONE by Raffi come immediately to mind. Wait, uh...scratch that last one, Bananaphone NEVER grew on me despite the 8 billion listens I was subjected to when my nephew was but a wee lad.

But anyway, those types of albums are kind of like scotch. That first sip tastes like pure horrible-ness, but before you know it, you're swilling three glasses of Chivas Regal a week, with a Macanudo cigar thrown in to boot.

Free Energy's STUCK ON NOTHING is NOT one of those types of albums. All the songs are immediately likeable, and sing-along-able as well. Is "sing-along-able" a word? If not, it should be.

I gave this four stars because there are a couple filler songs on this album that didn't quite speak to me, but the rest of the album is aces, I tells ya.

Check out BANG POP, ALL I KNOW, LIGHT LOVE and HOPE CHILD for a taste of what this band is all about - which just so happens to be pure awesomeness. That's what they're about - I know it to be true, they told me so themselves...in a dream.

Anyway, if you like the Cars, garage rock, and/or catchy music, then you'll dig this album. If you like terrible music, you'll hate this album. Hehe, see what I did there...

...neither do I.

God Bless!

This Philadelphia band's debut is pure fun, radio ready guitar rock with glam-pop roots, indie rock
elements & plenty of vocal harmonies. It's captivating & comfortable without being silly. If radio
was controlled by listeners rather than corporate whores, this is the sort of thing you would hear
every day. Reminiscent of Nada Surf, Thin Lizzy, Sweet, Smash Fashion, Eagles, T-Rex and
a lot of 70s radio guitar pop. Excellent, top-notch ear candy!
