Review by Michael O'Donahue
Bracket have a nice bouncy feel to them, and it's merged with sludgy 90's guitars and a big drum sound. That's not something you hear all the time, but I can't tell if Bracket are inherently cheery or just being ironic.
I find that I like some of the songs, while others come and go without ever sinking their teeth in . It all sounds very Right On the Beat Super Rehearsed, which would also make it very radio friendly, if this were 1994; but, to my ear, it sounds as if whatever edge these "punks" may have had has been ironed, squeezed and pressed out. They sound juiced, made from concentrated Rock Juices. The songs are well-crafted, expertly performed and all just the right length. And just a little too NICE.
