Album Review

The late '90s and early to mid-2000s brought listeners such a glut of mediocre, pedestrian emo/punk-pop bands that there was an inevitable backlash against emo — especially if the lyrics were introspective in an ultra-whiny way. But there is always room for a good punk-pop band that has some understanding of what goes into effective power pop, and Fireworks' All I Have to Offer Is My Own Confusion indicates that the members of this Detroit-based band get it. Punk, of course, has been making itself relevant to power pop ever since the Dickies, Generation X, the Buzzcocks, and the Ramones back in the late '70s — and the more substantial punk-pop bands that emerged in the 1990s and 2000s also knew how to balance punk and power pop considerations. Gratefully, Fireworks achieve that balance on this 2008 recording, which successfully blends punk's in-your-face outlook with melodic pop instincts and avoids the excessive whining that has plagued so many emo recordings. All I Have to Offer Is My Own Confusion has vulnerability, but it isn't whiny. And even though tracks like "Detroit," "2923 Monroe Street," and "You've Lost Your Charm" aren't groundbreaking or terribly distinctive, they're definitely respectable. Fireworks know how to rock passionately and be very poppy at the same time, which is what power pop is all about. The Midwesterners provide a healthy combination of honey and vinegar on this 32-minute CD, which won't go down in history as a five-star classic but nonetheless offers a solid, if brief, dose of punk-pop.
