A seering alternative rock debut from the lads from Missouri. For those who like their guitars layered into howling vortexes of noise "Preacher's Kid", "Body Be" and "Scream" will all send you into delirium while any oldies with enough guts to approach the cutting edge of Christian will approve of this teenage team's delightful acoustic and piano accordion busk of Larry Norman's "Reader's Digest" and their jazzy revival of Bob Dylan's "Serve Somebody". I doubt whether you'll hear a better rock debut this year.
