MI6 Lunchbox

Although it's debatable whether the world needs yet another pop punk band, this Lawrence, KS, quartet have the competence to carve out a spot for themselves. This isn't that good a record, since it's quite predictable, which is probably its biggest selling point. For your bucks you get 12 songs of Lagwagon-esque material with a hint of Screeching Weasel. They sing about life, love and being losers, with the requisite pop punk earnestness and catchy hooks. The only thing missing here is some heart and soul. (Kung Fu)
