Album Review

Copeland's Dressed Up & In Line is neither fish nor fowl, neither a new album nor the stopgap collection of rarities and outtakes it at first appears to be. Originally announced as a two-CD set but scaled back to a single disc just prior to release, Dressed Up & In Line gathers 15 songs from the length of the earnest Florida emo kids' career, from their first EP to outtakes from the previous year's Eat, Sleep, Repeat. Several are acoustic versions of fan favorites like "You Love to Sing" and "Careful Now." Two others are needless covers of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" and the Police's "Every Breath You Take," the former adding nothing to the unimpeachable original, and the latter bad enough that it somehow makes even the original song sound worse than it used to.

The results have an admirable sonic consistency, at least — a casual fan might not even recognize at first that this was a compilation and not a new album — but the uneven quality of the songs themselves makes Dressed Up & In Line more of a curiosity for the devoted than a truly necessary release.
