Think Basic - Take It Seriously

Reviewed by: Zac Djamoos (08/26/12)
Think Basic - Take it Seriously
Record Label: Butt Pubes Records
Release Date: May 7, 2012

Think Basic is a four-piece pop-punk band from Perkasie, PA. Their debut album, Take it Seriously, is full of catchy pop-punk songs. Unfortunately, the band's sound is nothing new, and has been done better before.

The album begins with "Let it Go" which is a fairly decent song, except that the lead vocalist is not very good. His voice is similar to Tom DeLonge of blink-182, although higher. The second track is "Keep Up" and it introduces another (better) singer. The chorus of the song is extremely catchy and it is hard not to sing along, "Keep up with me, keep up with me. Come on, you're slowing down!" Aside from the chorus , though, it is not a memorable song. "Forgive You" is one of the better songs on the album, although the lyrics are terribly repetitive. My favorite song on the album is easily "Good Riddance" and it features an intro similar to that of Midtown's "A Faulty Foundation (not a bad thing). Its six-word chorus sounds kind of Starting-Line-esque. Again, though, the lyrics are extremely repetitive. The following track would be far better if not for the nasally vocals. "Slipping Away" features tradeoff vocals in the verses reminiscent of early Taking Back Sunday.

While the vocals and lyrics could definitely use improvement, ultimately, this is not a terrible debut at all. Although by no means great, it is a decent pop-punk album of fun songs.
