The Art of Losing

Producer (group): Island; Status: In Season

The Boston foursome behind 2001’s ”Flavor of the Weak” returns with a peppy, though derivative, kick of suburban brat rock. Singer Stacy Jones – think Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong with a head cold – whines about bad girlfriends and feeling misunderstood, over riffs that borrow from Cheap Trick, the Ramones, and even Adam Ant. Some cuts have a quick sugar-high effect – once they fade, they’re about as fresh as overchewed bubblegum.
