in stickers reading, "The Pixies and Weezer have
nothing on this!" (i swear to god, this sticker
was on this album), The Reunion Show grabbed mine and
Tosh's attention in plan 9 today. We'd both just finished
doing some yardwork for my grandfather, so money wasn't
scarce, and i grabbed it. Whoever wrote this (punkrocks.net,
i believe) is full of shit. They are fucking RETARDED.
They need a solid kick in the teeth.
Kill Your Television isn't a bad album. The Reunion
Show is an agressive pop-punk-meets-new-wave band, and
they do shine in this album. Their style is brought
to the forefront of these 11 songs, and it's an interesting
departure of normal agressive pop punk (which i can't
stand for the most part). I do like the album, but it
has severely LOST POINTS because of that FUCKING STUPID
STICKER. You fucktards over at Victory Records like
tricking kids into spending their hard-earned cash on
this sort of thing when you KNOW they likely won't like
it, right? The FUCKING PIXIES!? How can you compare
this to the pixies? it's drivel in comparison! It's
nothing! The Pixies had true originality, they were
something completely different. This is just the same
crap we've been hearing on the radio for the past year.
I hate Thursday, just so you know, and this has a bit
in common with that (same label too).
My First and Only number rating:
terms of album and music, this gets a 5 out of 10. It's
okay, but nothing new. But because of those stickers,
the ONLY REASON I BOUGHT IT, IT GETS A 2. FUCK YOU,
VICTORY RECORDS, FUCK YOU. I hope you all go bankrupt.
And i hope that idiot over at www.punkrocks.net sees
this, because he needs to be beaten with a pipe. weezer
and the pixies, COME ON!!! What kind of crazy crack
WERE you smoking when you came up with that one! and
to top it off, they compare it to Elvis Costello and
The Cars! What were these ad execs thinking? Fucking
Final Verdict: Death. er, 2 out of 10.
