Album Review

With the success of Dashboard Confessional's strum-and-mope acoustic rock, it's not surprising that the Starting Line — a pop/punk band with obvious talent but few original ideas — would put together an E.P. of similarly executed emo. If the group's normal 'electric guitar, bass and drums' delivery is pretty innocuous, its unplugged approach isn't groundbreaking either, but it's pretty darn appealing. The title track to Make Yourself at Home is a shimmering number that chronicles homesickness as it puts Ken Vasoli's capable pipes out in front of a resonant acoustic guitar and a clacking, programmed beat.

Vasoli was soon installed as the bassist and singer, joining Watts, second guitarist Mike Golla, and drummer Tom Gryskiewitz to form Sunday Drive. Though barely out of high school, Sunday Drive...
