These guys rock! They manage to take deeply colored chords and sophisticated melodies and put them in a punk-grunge enviornment. Cuomo really rocks on his guitar, and his riffs are amazing. Check out the clever use of dissonance on "Say it aint so" or "Undone-The sweater song". Nothing is over the top, and Ric Ocasek mixes it all just right. Their upright happy melodies seem to add light to even the darkest subject matter. You may have this CD buried in your collection, so dig it up and listen again.
