The Allegory of Death and Fame
Fueled By Ramen
The first time I listened to this EP, I thought, “Wow, this sucks.” But the second time around wasn’t that bad. The album is six songs worth of emo-punk about failed relationships. It’s the sort of music that I pop into the car CD player, drive to Wal-Mart, drive to the beach, then realize that the CD has played three times and I just totally tuned it out. I think that the songs come from old tapes, so the lack of sound quality is obvious. A few parts break up the fuzzy guitars and whiny emo boy singing, including a nice little piano interlude and drum solo towards the end. Not bad, just not especially innovative.
