I got into these guys through going to many punk rock, hardcore nights in BrisVegas Queensland Australia. I missed seeing them live but I know I lived through a summer and a big period of my early 20s with this album. The album is along the lines of Weezer's Pinkerton, Jimmy Eat World's Bleed America, Green Day's Dookie great angsty indie punk rock emo pop nods towards great 80s power pop new wave.

All in all an album I remember Hardcore Straightedgers liked as well as the punk scenester. You need the whole album and actually buy the cd just for the great emo artwork of two robots in love listening to a record player.
