This Record Is About Cars - The Debut
What it is, is a straight up rock 'n' roll record with a distinctly pop edge. Lyrically it's your usual "love and loss" theme but there is no denying that it is certainly catchy.
Indeed tracks like Hey!, So Far Away and Last Chance would sit comfortably on your modern radio stations, and could, in the right circumstances, provide decent hits for the band.
Occasionally it all drifts apart amidst clumsy songs titles (Calm Objective Opinion anyone?) but if the idea of "Weezer meets a less shit Maroon 5" appeals to you, you'll find plenty to enjoy on this, ahem, debut album.
