Rock Kills Kid

Pop with replay value. It doesn't come often, but when it does, it sure is a keeper. This occurs because the pop and rock are so finely blended on this that it just comes oozing with smiles. These said oozed smiles are soon molded into the figures of two lovers making passionate sex with "Everything To Me" as the backdrop. That song just screams "put it in me!", from the girl fingering herself to that sweet man's voice. If you are happy, this will make you happier. If you aren't happy, well prepare for a smile! And nothing soothes my freshly torn toenails like the harmonizing done in "Dream." I'm not gay, but this turns me on. Please Rock Kills Kid, make another album "Again"!

I decided to give this band a chance because I heard they weren't a complete Get Up Kids rip off. Well, every piece of press this band gets mentions that Rock Kills Kid brings more to the table than simple pop punk, but this might be a stretch. The verses sound a little interesting, but as soon as the choruses with the cheesy back-up kick in, I have to move on to the next track. The first two songs, "Dream" and "Miracle" are perfect examples of this. Furthermore, the lyrics make this band seem even more like a band that's just trying to run with this new emo explosion - "this dream is never ending, I want to wake up from this dream" This EP is pretty one dimensional and I'm not too sure about the hype its been getting.

4.0 / 10 — Robby

Rock Kills Kid of Southern California deliver a refreshing take on pop-punk with their debut EP. The band has been described as "technical pop-punk" which is seemingly fitting, because they certainly have much more technical prowess than most bands they will surely be lumped together with. This EP combines the energy of a pop-punk band with the darker approach of a band like Sunny Day Real Estate. Their self-titled debut puts a spin on a sound that has become recycled over and over, and that spin will surely lead to a decent amount of recognition for these guys. Not only does this EP contain an original sense of musical style, but also a great deal of potential. Keep these guys on your radar, they could be huge in no time.
