Album Review

Sprinkled with new wave theatrics and a sweet bubblegum pop or girl group flavoring, this Canadian group knows what it can and cannot pull off. The tight jangle rock of "Start Over" and "Your Thesaurus Won't Help You Now" is constant but competes with a synthesizer element, resembling a modern-day version of the Bangles or Go-Go's.

Another great track is the high-school slow-dance track "I've Done It Wrong Again," although it tends to lose a bit of its steam near its culmination.
