Pop Unknown

Summer Season Kills

Deep Elm

I have no idea why Deep Elm seems to be getting so popular. Everything I’ve heard from them isn’t very original, or good, for that matter. Pop Unknown don’t attempt to do anything new or original; instead, they choose to sound like anything you would have heard on the radio a few years ago. You remember, that boring, repetitive, flat sounding “buzz” music that lasted for a few months to many. The first song is six minutes of drawn-out boring music that they could have done just as well (that is, badly) in two minutes. The singer sounds exactly like the singer from Local H, and not much else. If you are looking for something good and original, I suggest you skip over this CD.
