Boys Like Girls by Boys Like Girls



Boys Like Girls

Play on Napster
Label: Columbia/Red Ink
Even though Boys Like Girls' debut spins with an absolute absence of creative capital -- owing all of the halftime pummeling and melodic affectation to emo pioneers like Jimmy Eat World and the better Warp Tour disciples -- the singles, like "Dance Hall Drug" or "Hero/Heroine," are simple charmers with solid hooks. Martin Johnson knows how to dress up beige confessions with a well-placed falsetto, and drummer John Keefe approaches the cookie-cut forms with loads of high-volume energy. "The Great Escape" and wailing "Thunder" are highlights.
