Review: Old Growth – S/T

Boilerplate pop-punk from a trio that hits the right poses but sometimes ambles half-hearted through the proceedings. Tracks occasionally hint at a bluesy undercurrent or hidden wells of melancholy but most the 11-song outing is safe with a capital S, circling around fuzzy guitars and the usual head-bopping refrains. The exception is “Been Here,” an incredible exercise in Ramones worship that borders on the frenetic. – Punk Planet, September/October 2006
