The Art of Losing (2003)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Feb 25, 2003; Lead Performance: American Hi-fi

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.
