Music Review: 'Death to Traitors'

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Paw

Gritty vocals, grungy guitars, lyrical acoustic interludes — at first, Paw sounds like another Replacements/ Nirvana hybrid. But this sophomore album kicks in after three or four spins — two or three more than it should take for great rock to make its impact. The keeper is ''Hope I Die Tonight,'' an anthem for incurable romantics, not suicid al depressives. B
