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!

'Shake It' is a cool song. Unfortunately the rest of the album is just shallow bubble gum music. I'm okay with a bit of bubble gum, don't get me wrong, but this album is just so uninspired and derivative, I can't get into it. The worst song is "I Wish We Were Older". It goes "Woah eyo eyo oh, woah eyo eyo, I wish we were older." Ugh, I wish they were too, to be honest. Maybe their songs would have a little more meat on the bones.

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

Although the cd is very short, its greatness makes up for it. One of the more underrated/ my favorite songs called Kelsey is amazing. I see lots of people complaining about how this music is meant for teenage girls and how the lyrics are bad, but I enjoy it for what it is meant to be which is make you happy and wanna jump around while singing along. Definitely worth buying and I hope they continue to put out more new music since they are back together.
