EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jun 05, 2007; Lead Performance: Tiger Army; Genre: Rock

At what magical crossroads do Morrissey and suburban skate rats meet? Improbably, both the poet laureate of English mope and countless acolytes of the Vans Warped Tour (Tiger Army plays its main stage this summer) are fans of the L.A. trio, and we can see why. Frontman Nick 13, an unabashed rockabilly romantic, emotes in his best Smiths-ian warble, while his bandmates — drums and stand-up bass only — bash away at pompadour-punk grooves with melodic abandon.
