Album Reviews

    Orange County pop-punkers Limbeck have decided to dress up like Ryan Adams and take a stab at the alt-country genre. Their goal: write songs so catchy that you will be begging them to leave you alone.

    On their most recent effort Hi, Everything’s Great, Limbeck teams up with Ed Rose of the Get Up Kids to make an album filled with the honesty of the Midwest. Starting with the sweet sounds of dirty telecasters and open hi-hats, Limbeck’s first song ³Honk and Wave² is the most well-conceived song on the entire album.

    As the tunes roll by, each song is a poorer imitation of the one preceding it. By the end, it’s hard to believe that these guys have the balls to play another G-chord.

    Limbeck will be performing at the Casbah on Jan. 26.
