Album Art: 

     The Molochs latest effort starts out sounding like a brief ode to the easy going, yet catchy rhythms of 90s Alt acts married with a somewhat vintage sound reminiscent of 1960s ballad makers.

      Track #2, "I Wanna Say To You" sounds like a summertime song with a rhythm as simple sounding as any of Oaisis's songs off their masterpiece album "What's The Story Morning Glory". Most notably the rhyme on "Wonderwall".  I love this song as much as I loved that band's music in the 90s.

    Track #3 sounds very ballad-like with an upbeat rhythm that sounds like the songs your parents would listen to at a Sadie Hawkins dance or any other social-mating ritual in the 1960s.

     Track #5 starts out as hook-ridden as a teenage anthem and makes you want to sing: la-la-la along with the chorus. It's rhythm sounds like an infusion of pop with folk and compliments the lyrics as well as any 90s song that talked about Teen angst in a sing-song style. It sounds like: "Da da da da da da da da da. Na Na. In the story life I am old...

   Track #9 plays like any catchy Blink-182 song with sing-a-long lyrics combined with pop-ridden guitar riffs. The greatest example of this similarity would be the track "First Date". 

      After listening to this entire album I am left agreeing with the promoter of this album's recommendations. I also completely agree with the LA Times review when they say: "The Molochs are on their own trip, one that spins old ideas with new energy." I will recommend this album to anyone that feels like their musical taste transcends diversified decades.
