O’migod They’re Totally Cute!
The Click Five is the latest incarnation of the young poppy boy bands to make it to TRL, but theyâ€šÃ„Ã´re totally fresh because they wear suits. The music on Greetings from Imrie House is the same schlock you have heard before. Imagine the lead singer from Coheed and Cambria chopping off all his hair and joining Sugarcult.This falsetto heavy disc is typical of the mush many teens identify with thanks to its easy accessibility. Youâ€šÃ„Ã´re sad over a crush? No way, me too! At first listen itâ€šÃ„Ã´s difficult to believe bands like this still get record deals, but then again Blink-182 just released a greatest hits album so itâ€šÃ„Ã´s fair to say Hell has frozen over.
The lyrics on Greetings from Imrie House are cute. Cute lyrics are only a step above purely wretched ones. On their first single, â€šÃ„ÃºJust the Girl,â€šÃ„Ã¹ the boys croon, â€šÃ„ÃºShe can’t keep a secret/For more than an hour/She runs on 100 proof attitude power/And the more she ignores me/The more I adore her.â€šÃ„Ã¹ Do any non-virgins really fall for that stuff?
ame Itâ€šÃ„Ã´s likely that all these detractions are the same reasons parents cite when explaining why they let their children listen to this music. But one can only hope that, much like pot, this band is a gateway to better things down the road.
ame Just because The Click Five are marketed as being edgier than The Backstreet Boys doesnâ€šÃ„Ã´t mean they are any less saccharine. Remaking Tiffanyâ€šÃ„Ã´s â€šÃ„ÃºI Think Weâ€šÃ„Ã´re Alone Nowâ€šÃ„Ã¹ without making any creative changes certainly doesnâ€šÃ„Ã´t help. Buy this if you must, but donâ€šÃ„Ã´t blast it too loud when you score the keys to momâ€šÃ„Ã´s Aerostar.
