Can you say Nirvana? These fellas can. Although the grunge thread runs through this like a suburban teenager in a mosh pit, in some ways it works. They’re a bit too polished to be indie, but this record could be a lot worse. The fact they picked Nirvana actually works in their favour — it could have been Pearl Jam, after all. After all, one hit blunders Creed got their 15 minutes. (Universal)
