not Johnny Cash -- maybe John Cougar Mellencamp
on April 13, 2004
This isn't country and it's not punk; it's what critics call meat and potatoes rock n' roll, and what I refer to as a boring slog. The vocals are mediocre, the riffs are recycled, and the lyrics are, at best, moderately clever. Even the enthusiasm seems second-hand -- I felt like they were constantly nudging me to tell me what a good time they were having. Their proletarian posturing isn't quite as good as Bruce Springsteen's, but if you like John Mellencamp, there's no reason you shouldn't enjoy this.
