Weston
The Massed Albert Sounds (Mojo Records)

By: Alex Steininger

"I Just Quit Rock and Roll" and "Liz Phair" are two shiny examples of Weston's ability to craft infectious pop-punk that is different than their peers. Unfortunately, the majority of this album is mediocre at best, sounding familiar track after track. The chords, the songs, and the style have been done before, most notably by Weston on their last album.

Nowhere near groundbreaking, the album has its moments (as noted above). For the most part, though, it's just a cookie-cutter pop-punk album trying to be more than that. And it just doesn't work. I'll give it a C-.
