CRASH ROMEO
MINUTES TO MILES
TRUSTKILL

"Pop rock sensation" Crash Romeo hail from the mecca of pop rock, New Jersey, and play the kind of innocuous power punk that so many faceless acts these days are trying to commandeer. On this quintet comprised of childhood friends' 11-track release, there's a whole lot of hullabaloo for the Warped Tour crowd to gush over, from the huge hooks and synth underlays of "Get Up, Shut Up", the infectious chorus of the title track, and the dance-rock sensibilities displayed on "Hot Commodity". Despite the fact that these guys are undeniably tight and play with a enthusiasm that can't be faked, their whiny style seems to ape Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, and Motion City Soundtrack simultaneously without any real sense of identity of their own, causing many to skip right over MINUTES TO MILES and go to the original source.
