Big Eyes: Almost Famous 12"
Long-awaited sophomore LP from this great melodic punk band and it doesn't disappoint. Everything you already loved about the band is still here... those killer, Runaways-style riffs, the powerful vocals, and the great pop songwriting, but everything feels just a tad more mature and well-developed than on their previous releases. Honestly, this is so well-done that it's the kind of record I could picture someone's little sister getting into, but it's also very tough and punk. It may be too saccharine for the tough HC types, but if you've got a pop sweet tooth at all you'll love this. Gorgeous artwork as well, including a big full-color poster. Grave Mistake Records
