on the verge...
You wouldn’t expect these guys to rock the way they do. T-shirts, short
hair, ball caps; they’re a bunch of cute guys your Mom would let you go
to the movies with. For all their hardcore/punk pretenses, these guys
aren’t a threat to anybody. They might be seen on the cover of 17
magazine. They’ve probably got 15 years of college between the 5 of
them. If they got in a fight with Blur, I don’t know who would win. But
most of their fans are not starry-eyed teenage girls. In fact, most of
them are probably malicious, fun-loving teenage boys who are likely to
listen to this while grouped around a Sony Playstation and sucking on a
three-foot bong. Soon they’ll all go out for tacos.
But don’ t get me wrong. Flashpoint does rock. In fact, they were
personally picked by Ozzy Osbourne to be at the Ozzfest this year. If
they sound like the Deftones it’s because they share the same producer.
The songs are both heavy and harmonic, catchy and fun. A slick cover of
Dramarama’s “Anything” makes the record definitely worth buying.
