The Cringe

Album Title: Scratch the Surface
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Rock
Rob Levin may have lifted the guitar riff on "Burn" directly from AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", but the impressive thing is that he can play it÷at least on record. The story of the past decade has been that no music is original, that it's all been heard before. Of course the exception to that particular rule has always been that the current generation hasn't heard it before, so it seems all is fair in love and war. As astute readers may have guessed, the Cringe don't sound completely original or even completely discernable from the plethora of other "unoriginal" bands. But that's alright, and OK, because Scratch The Surface offers up some good tunes with some good guitar lines accompanying some throaty vocals. Ranging from the punk inspired ("I Don't Know") to catchy radio-friendly hits ("Burn") to prog-lite experimentation ("Song 13"), the Cringe's debut album is A-OK.
