Album Review

Blending the best of Brit-pop with the bite of punk and a touch of techno, this outfit offers a visceral burst of energy. While lead singer Jason Perry sounds particularly influenced by Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction), the mix of catchy hooks and snotty insolence put this disc over the top. Dig the bounce of "Old Folks" or the frontal attack of "For Starters" and you'll get a good idea of where they're coming from.

nice

honestly i just typed in A because i was bored and i found this. this is actually a really good album just listen to some songs and then you'll know what i'm talkin about. if you like bands like brand new, panic at the disco, and other bands like that youll like A

I've never posted a review before...

But this album needs better than a 3 Star rating!!! I suppose it definitely could be called odd, but it's a really upbeat album, blending MANY styles and sounds. The lyrics are fun and catchy, and the overall sound of the album is very crisp and clear. I found this album back in 2000 in Last Vestige, a cool used music shop in Albany. The cover caught my eye, so I checked it out and it was one of the best random choices I've ever made! If I had to compare, I'd say a blend of 311, Jane's Addiction, and Weezer. They have a uniquely cool sound, definitely worth a listen!!

Killer Brit-Rock

I found this CD in a used music store for a freakin' QUARTER so I bought it, even though I had never heard of 'A'. I popped the disc in and was blown away by some of the best new music I had heard in YEARS! I love the vocals and the lyrics. Very funny, creative writing. And the music is incredible. I have since been scouting for the reast of their CDs and almost have a complete collection now. That original quarter has now cost me a bunch o' bucks, but every penny has been well spent.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Alternative rockers A mix punk attitude, spacey Moog synth, and Britpop-influenced guitar rock with bratty, juvenile humor. The group debuted in 1997 with How Ace Are Buildings but achieved their first widespread release in the U.S. with 2000's A vs. Monkey Kong.
