pete. pete.

This band manages to add insult to injury by adding a good helping of the post-grunge grunge sound to their nu-metal. Say, later Stone Temple Pilots meets boring Godsmack; it's a showdown, Lollapalooza vs. Ozzfest. They redeem themselves slightly during the moody "Is She Coming Up?" but that's only a momentary breather amongst all the generic Cali-core. If there is such a thing as a nu-metal fanatic, I'm sure they will find pete. to be moderately interesting, but for those of us who like music, move along. (Warner)
