COUNT THE STARS
NEVER BE TAKEN ALIVE
Count The Stars is another one of those punk rock bands that have been springing up everywhere as of late, whether it be on DAWSON'S CREEK or at your local mall. While the 13 tracks that comprise this Albany, NY based quartet's debut are crisp and full of fist pumping, anthemic choruses and catchy hooks aplenty, it's not exactly original at all. Matter of fact, if you've heard Thursday, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, blah, blah, blah, you've heard Count The Stars, too. Seemingly following the faceless punk rock trend, Count The Stars have got a good shtick going on, but it's a shame that it's everyone else's, too.
