American Hi-Fi
The Art of Losing (Island/Def Jam)

By: Alex Steininger

Following the success of their hit, "Flavor of the Week", off their debut full-length, American Hi-Fi comes crashing back. The Art of Losing is a slick, lively explosion of modern rock and punk-rock, fused together to deliver a hook-laden, nicely produced package of crunchy and melodic songs that get stuck in your head and make you want to sing along. Here are the anthems for the radio listening youth of today that want something with muscle, something that sounds good, but still has enough commercial viability to stand a chance. The Art of Losing is a blast of modern rock at its best, a prime example of what can happen if a band cares, writes good songs, and goes for the gold. I'll give it a B.
