Grown Ups - Hand Holder
The guitar is primarily on clean channel, and playing sweet sounding little leads throughout all of the songs. The vocals, as hinted earlier, are sung with a lot of grit and emotion. The raspiness of the singer's voice is essentially most of their similarity to the band Lifetime. Actually, the vocal melodies are pretty reminiscent as well. Grown Ups really remind me of the band Charlie Brown Gets a Valentine. The same awesome catchiness, with the same awesome emo-styled guitar bits.
So, what you can take away from this album...is pure awesome. And what you can take away from this review, is that this album is pure awesomeness. It's definitely among the top releases of the year, and you're just shooting yourself in the kneecap by not getting your hands on it right away. I mean, just listen to the song "Couch King" with it's awesome blues guitar lead intro into the perfect mess that is the vocals. You'll be hooked and you'll love it. So do it. Jerk.
P.S. You're not a jerk.
