Sometimes it is appropriate to hear warm distortion in upbeat songs. This album, however, sometimes goes too far into the land of the lowest common denominator. Years ago, some of it would be considered poser-ish, but in the present era, some of the guitar fuzz is welcome.
The retro vibe in some parts doesn’t seem contrived, but it helps to de-poser-ize some of the riffs, I’d say that the songs are best in small doses, like one song in a mixed batch of other bands, perhaps as a palate cleanser, restoring the ear to accept other styles.
The lyrics seem to be in the same radio-friendly vein.
Perhaps the best thing to do is to link a video.
