Kill 2 This sure do have a lot of influences and it's
funny that in "Confused In The Computer Age," you
actually finally get the connection between Foo
Fighters and Black Sabbath. That'd never cross my
mind, which is I suppose is cool. As a whole, I don't
find Kill 2 This particularly bland, but neither do I
feel the need to take them in and make them my new
favorite band. They have some really cool tracks,
including "Typhoid And Swans," which'll no doubt
become a favorite on compilation tapes passed between
friends in years to come. "Frame By Frame" is another
good candidate, too. But, on the whole, will this band
change your life? Probably not. (Still, I'm giving it
a strong rating. Weird, eh? Like I said, it's not bad.
I recommend it, especially given current musical
climates. You could do worse than own this album.)
But, hey, everybody's gotta have a favorite band and
maybe this is yours. Better than most of what's been
reviewed in the current issue of Rolling Stone.
Listen for this on college radio. In the right age, it
could hit big (enough) there. Is there a video for
"The Universe In A Nutshell"?
