Jersey Beat on The Burning Hotels


Coming through loud and clear with a pleasing sonic package of bright, peppy
vocals, dynamic arrangements, clean, tight, and tuneful arrangements, and
smart and thoughtful songwriting, this album hits the spot in a nicely
spirited and straightforward manner. The snappy tempos and constant beats
keep the music flowing along at a properly steady clip. Moreover, the
ringing guitars, chugging basslines, and sturdy drums blend together to
create a smooth arresting, and often excitingly kickin' sound. It's this
latter welcome and engaging element of youthful get up and go vitality which
in turn makes this baby such an enjoyable listen. A fun album.
