THE STRANGER'S SIX
A DATE WITH DAYLIGHT
Modern rock for the new milenium is what the quintet The Stranger's Six are attempting to portray on its 11-track A DATE WITH DAYLIGHT. A slight-sounding punk attitude with dance rock backbeats and fretwork collide with a smidgen of indie and a dollop of hair metal hijinks on this one, as if Panic at the Disco, Taking Back Sunday and Faster Pussycat decided to play a gig together. Catchy, hooky, and a bit dark, this San Diego act's sound transcends their haircut and makes nice sounds for those who dig bands like Lostprophets, Funeral for a Friend, and latter-day AFI.
