Pinhead what?

RadikalEd

Scooter James, you've done it again! If you haven't seen these guys live, you're missing out on a really good show. Tons of energy and high-school girls. If you want to see Scooter in action, go to the Highlands Tavern on Thursdays, he DJs there. Shameless plug complete.

Holy crap.

This cd blows me away. Of all the collective bands that the guys in Love Me Destroyer have been in, this is by far their best work. Not only that, Its the best album Suburban Home has put out. LMD are a Denver band, who flawlessly merge West coast punk rock with a Chicago style flava. This is a great record and so far my favorite album of 2007. check it out. For fans of Lawrence Arms, Bouncing Souls and A Wilhelm Scream.

They Say All Music Guide

The second album from Love Me Destroyer (consisting largely of former members of Pinhead Circus) finds the quartet continuing to explore the noisy borderland between punk, emo, metal, and indie rock, and the group’s exploration has yielded some pretty intense and often startlingly attractive fruit. James Wellensiek’s yelling can’t hide his and guitarist Ryan Welter’s fancy-schmancy extended chords, and even when they dive briefly into lunkhead molten metal riffage, the sophistication of their chord progressions betrays their musical intelligence. And good for them. Growing up means, among other things, that you don’t have to apologize for being smart anymore, and there’s no reason at all why you can’t buttress sophisticated chord progressions with power-chord heavyosity. The album hits its peak of intelligent hookiness on the borderline-hardcore roar of “I Went to Las Vegas…,” but there are lots of other fine moments as well. There are also some rather puzzling ones — for instance, why does “Color of the Grave” stop after four minutes, only to let the track go on in silence for another three and a half before the final track begins? (It’s not like the last song is a hidden track — it’s listed on both the disc and the tray card.) And for that matter, why is the final track a half-baked attempt at power ballad country-metal? It’s a truly lame end to an otherwise impressive album. – Rick Anderson
