We gave it a B+

Terminally tense singers and guitars that resemble low-speed power drills may be alterna-rock clichés, but the droners Girls Against Boys make those elements sound fresh and musical on House of GVSB, their last indie release before moving to Geffen. Credit goes to the group’s two-bass-guitar attack, which gives the songs a propulsive kick, and to singer-guitarist Scott McCloud, who’s so tightly wound that a trip to an ATM (”Cash Machine”) nearly sends him over the edge.
