In listening to this album, I was taken not only by its a lack of originality, but more significantly, its lack of heart. Hailing from Harvard, the story behind this duo may make for a good headline, but this media ploy may prove detrimental as their music does not reflect well on that institution's intellectual integrity. What you hear in these 13 songs is not artistic ingenuity but a forced amalgam of brash sounds that neither please nor inspire. The lyrics settle for easy rhymes that have been recycled in countless form, as in "don't want to be your man, just want to hold your hand, but I don't think you understand." These songs are not crafted to pull one's emotions or even to engage the imagination; rather, they offer a short ride that is as quick as it is disposable. In the end, this effort is a collection of songs that are slick, incohesive and, ultimately, irrelevant.
