Album Review

Formed from the same New Brunswick scene that launched Midtown, Outsmarting Simon made their recorded entry with Silent Sober and Sound in late 2002. Within a year — after stints opening for A New Found Glory and Good Charlotte — the group aligned with Triple Crown Records with the intention of giving the masses a dose of its passionate, eclectic punk. Upbeat, college airwave-ripe anthems ("...And So Ends the Drought," "Drive By Monologue") are balanced with slow, evocative songcraft ("Taylor Led a Chorus") and experimental statements ("The Ties"). The bandmembers' ambition rarely gets the best of them on Silent Sober and Sound, although the group does feel a bit derivative on "We Are Who We Hate," which owes a bit of acknowledgement to fellow Garden Staters/scene leaders Thursday. Still, Outsmarting Simon offer a predominantly inventive and largely inviting debut. ~ John D. Luerssen, Rovi

Customer Reviews

great cd

Highly recommended cd. 05.04.68 and Drive By Monologue are my favorite songs on the album. They put on a great live show if you get the chance to see them. I saw them in April of 2004 and they were unbelievable
